Heart was one of the first mainstream rock bands where women were in complete creative control. That being said, it's hard to downplay the legacy that the band has left in its wake.

Little known fact: several bands from the Seattle grunge scene (including Soundgarden, Alice in Chains and Pearl Jam) recorded at Heart's Bad Animals recording studio in Seattle, further proving the influence Heart continues to have on the music industry.
