Rock-n-roll and breasts often go (tee-hee) hand in hand. In fact, Motley Crue drummer and groupie magnet, Tommy Lee, has this rule about coming into his dressing room:

"You're not allowed in unless you remove an article of clothing. And I'm not talking about your socks. It's pretty f***ing crazy and we have a good time."

So where would rock-n-roll be without "band aids," i.e. the many, many, many girls that have tended to musicians?

In honor of this past Sunday's "National Go Topless Day," here's a shout out to the muses that bared all for the music they loved, and the songs they inspired.

5. Sable Starr

Girlfriend of New York Dolls' Johnny Thunders. Sable Starr was so prolific that she had her own protege, Lori Maddox, who (like almost everyone in this blog post) dated Jimmy Page.

Song: "Look Away," by Iggy Pop.

4. Cynthia Albritton, a.k.a Cynthia Plaster Caster

Even though she never technically posed topless, Caster melded groupiedom and art with her, um, unique sculptures. (Let's just say Cynthia broke the mold, and apparently Jimi Hendrix's "midnight lightning.")

Song: "Plaster Caster," by Kiss.

3. Pamela Des Barres

Pamela Des Barres tapped Mick Jagger, Keith Moon, Jim Morrison, went on tour with Led Zeppelin, and even played in a band created by Frank Zappa (the GTOs). After trading in her guitar for a typewriter, Des Barres wrote the seminal book I'm with the Band: Confessions of a Groupie in 1987.

Song: Take your pick.
