Babes in Toyland was Kat Bjelland, Lori Barbero, Michelle Leon and Maureen Herman.

Babes in Toyland were an awesome group--noisy, smart and very influential. Courtney Love stole A LOT from Kat Bjelland, who I always thought was a better singer and musician. Bassist Michelle Leon left the band midway-through, but both versions of the band made a pretty scary sound. They also enjoyed a good laff.
