None from the list.

I think the Queen of New Wave is either Debbie Harry or Siouxsie Sioux.
I can't make up my mind which one it is really at all as I love both equally.

I picked The Pretenders, but I wouldn't consider them or the B-52s as female acts, unless Fred Schneider or Chrissie's back-ups all have sex-changes. (Perish the thought. :-[)

Guess I don't think of Concrete Blonde as New Wave at all.  Alt rock or college rock, possibly 80's Goth with an album like "Bloodletting", but not New Wave.  Pat Benetar maybe, but she kind of was seen as more of a rocker at the time.  And Wendy O. Williams IMO was more hard rock/punkish IMO.

As an aside, Blondie also started as a punk band, but went new wave.  Still, they played around with a lot of sounds, "Heart of Glass" was originally written with a reggae beat for instance, not a disco-rock beat.  Heard a snippet of it with a reggae beat on a VH-1 special, IMO works just as well as the one actually released.

Cindy Lauper, although fun and good in her own right, was not a New Wave artist. She was a pop songstress with a bit of a punky flair, but fully pop.

It depends, but Concrete Blonde was played on a lot of college New Wave stations.

Well...that in a way proves my point though, plus it's not like a college station circa 1983 or so just suddenly stopped playing anything that was pop or mainstream and only played what passed for alternative rock.  That and I remember hearing Bjork's old band, The Sugarcube's song "Cold Sweat" played right a Duran Duran song on the same college station, but I wouldn't exactly call "The Sugarcubes" New Wave.  IMO all your statement shows is that your average college listener has eclectic enough tastes to accept Concrete Blonde on a generally New Wave station.
