The Damned' is featured on the Plasmatics’s third studio album, Coup D´Etat (1982). The video shows Wendy in epic form driving a school bus loaded with explosives, crashing into two walls of TVs, climbing on to the roof and then jumping off right before the explosion. The video shoot had to be completed in one day, and no second take was possible. Always a danger freak, Wendy refused to stop the production even after seriously spraining her ankle. The video was a massive success despite MTV’s pushback with its legal department demanding the inclusion of a “warning” label at the beginning. Once again, Wendy Williams transcended the limits of what rockstars were doing at that time, whether male or female.
