WOW is the debut solo studio album by American singer Wendy O. Williams, released in 1984 by Passport Records. It is her first album appearance after the success with The Plasmatics, which had gone on a hiatus during that time. Williams was nominated for Grammy Award for Best Female Rock Vocal Performance for this album in 1985.
After the release of the album Coup d’État in 1982, The Plasmatics opened for KISS on their Creatures of the Night tour. By the end of the tour, The Plasmatics’ recording contract with Capitol Records wasn’t renewed and Kiss bassist Gene Simmons approached Williams and Rod Swenson about producing an album. As to avoid legal issues with Capitol, they decided not to use The Plasmatics’ name on the record in any way.
