Real riot grrl

Just in case you thought yesterday's video was an example of the genre "riot grrl", here's the biggest "hit" by the band that almost defined the genre, Bikini Kill, which should dissuade you from that opinion. This is of course "Rebel Girl" from their album Pussy Whipped. Needless to say said album wasn't sold in Wally World :).

Kathleen Hanna, the driving force behind Bikini Kill, appears to be working as a music and art teacher nowadays. Just goes to show that being a pioneer of a new genre of music is good for nothing other than getting scalped.
