Marianne Faithfull's defiant 1979 comeback album shows her as the most punk of 60s icons. But on Broken English she usually was. If the era called for shock tactics, then Faithfull was happy to be shocking. The concluding Why'd Ya Do It's depiction of feminine hell-hath-no-fury rage contains a fuck, a cunt, two cocks, a dick, a balls, a pussy and a fanny (the latter "full of cobwebs") as well as posing the immortal question "Why did you spit on my snatch?": an impressive tally in a pre-hip-hop world
