  1. They are not the first (or last) Saudi rock band, and they are not the first Saudi all-girl band either. Chicks Behind Walls are Saudi's first all-girl rock band.

    A fellow Saudi band who is also struggling is Sandstoned; three of the band members, including the vocalist, are Saudi nationals. Regardless of gender, all rock artists in Saudi Arabia struggle to find live venues; the laws in the Kingdom are gender-blind when it comes to such matters of propriety.
