Censorship in the USA

One of the somewhat interesting subgenres in the early 90's was a feminist punk rock typically labeled "riot grrl" in the music press. Slant 6 was sometimes put into that group simply because of the gender of the three women who comprised the group, even though what they generally played was fairly straight-forward punk-pop without the full-on feminist trappings of "riot grrl". This one is called "Don't Censor Me", on their album Soda Pop-Rip Off.
