Female punk quartet appearing in the "Gwen Stacy: Spider-Woman" issue of Marvel Comic's limited series Edge of Spider-Verse (November 2014, released 17 Sept. 2014). The series is about...No, is too much. Suffice it to say this guy is traveling through alternate universes killing all the versions of Spider-Man. As one does. Anyhoo, on one world (Earth 65), Gwen Stacy was the one who was bitten by a radioactive spider and now has spider powers. In this version of things, Peter Parker, the mainstream Spider-Man (unless it's an issue where Spider-Man is one of his clones or Doctor Octopus or a robot or any of the other 9 million people who have pretended to be Spider-Man) became the Lizard and then died. Gwen realized with great power comes great backbeats, so she became a drummer in a band fronted by singer/guitarist Mary Jane Watson, Parker's love interest/girlfriend/wife/ex-wife/whatever in the standard (again, depending on what issue it is), and featuring perennial Spider-Man peripheral characters Gloria Grant and Betty Brant.

The Mary Janes have continued in the new, ongoing Spider-Gwen series, and Marvel has even released a recording of a song that the band always seems to be playing, "Face It Tiger": {{#ev:youtube|2_inenhypZI}}

Apparently, the band has a thorny history with Felicia Hardy, who they open for in Spider-Gwen #5.
