Rockabilly women such as Wanda Jackson and Sparkle Moore were often considered daring and rebellious, and so it only makes sense that they would inspire other musicians. Psychobilly derives from their style, as well the early punk rock scene featuring rockabilly style guitar playing and punk rock speed.

Pyschobilly bands typically turn to horror and sci-fi B movies and a camp aesthetic for inspiration. Put on your creepers and Doc Martens and check out some of these great psychobilly jams.
