Battered Wives

Profile:
Battered Wives was a Canadian punk rock band from Toronto, active during the late 1970s.
London had Sex Pistols, New York had Ramones, but Toronto had Battered Wives.
The group made a point of playing as loudly as possible. The whole idea was to turn it up to ten and saw the knobs off!
Battered Wives acquiesced to complaints from the public, shortening their name to simply 'The Wives' for their second album Cigarettes. It won a Juno for best record design.
