Bettie Page brought sexy back way before that boy band singer! Why, she was actually sexy.

What a sexy bitch…. she’ll be missed.

Bettie Page died in LA after a 3 week bout with pneumonia. She was due to be released when she suffered a fatal heart attack. She was 85.

The International Herarld Tribune reported on Page’s life & death.

In her trademark raven bangs, spike heels and killer curves, Page was the most famous pinup girl of the post-World War II era, a centerfold on a million locker doors and garage walls. She was also a major influence in the fashion industry and a target of Senator Estes Kefauver’s anti-pornography¬†investigators.

She was also a beloved figure to us punk-rock & rockabilly scene-queens… we will always love her and our smoky clubs will always be filled with young ingenues looking to spice up their look with Bettie Page bangs. (For proof of how Page has influenced hipster haircuts since the 90’s check out Janeane Garofalo in this Reality Bites clip.)

Bettie Page will live on in our hearts and our spank-banks forever. (Punk) Rock on!

Pose in Peace.
