L7 is a rock music all-women band. The band was formed in 1985 by Donita Sparks and Suzi Gardner, who were later joined by Jennifer Finch and Demetra Plakas. They signed to Epitaph Records for their first album and to Sub Pop in 1989. The name is taken from a slang phrase from the 1950s which means "square," but is often mistaken for a reference to a sex position, also called "69". (The slang phrase "L7" can be heard in the classic Sam the Sham & The Pharoahs song "Wooly Bully" - "Don't you be L7, come and learn to dance, Wooly Bully, Wooly Bully, Wooly Bully!")
