What is everyone's favorite Bikini Kill song of all time? You have to pick just one. I think mine would have to be 'Alien She'.

[ mood | WOW, Michael Jackson! ]

I love Bikini Kill because they opened the door for a lot of girls to express themselves the way they want to, be explosive, yet still remaining underground. Like Nirvana explosive that no one knows about. No one is in tune with the underground scene anymore cuz there's not much of an underground scene anymore. Kill Rock Stars however, has some of the best bands I've ever heard signed to their label, as does K Records and Sub Pop. Major labels suck. Most of them. Some majors are smart enough to sign bands like Nirvana and Hole and Le Tigre. But then they prove to us that they're still fakes by turning around and signing Good Charlotte and Ashlee Simpson to the same label. Let's fight to keep the underground scene underground! Then it will be like our cool little secret, something only WE know about, and then we can pity all of the MTV whores for not knowing about it and reveling in it like we do. Then we'll write about it here on LJ and in our fanzines, cuz we are JUST THAT COOL. By merging "cool" with "female," we will throw off the whole system, as "cool" is more conventionally accosiated with "male."
How alienating is that? Like, we all get left out cuz the boys are the cool ones? NO! Not gonna happen. Women and Girls must be strong, because if we're not, then what do we have left? A box of Revlon haircolour? I, personally, am against Male White Corporate opression, what about YOU?

Bikini Kill in She Bop [17 Mar 2005|10:15pm]

[ mood | I need a cigarette. ]

I was wandering the library I work in last night & since I had awhile, I thought I'd go around checking out the music section. I found this book called She Bop by Lucy O'Brien & of course my first reaction was to pick it up & look for Bikini Kill or anything Kathleen Hanna & to my surprise, there were a few mentions of Bikini Kill.

I haven't read it yet or anything but I plan on starting it over my spring break & I'll post more about it if I remember. Here's what the back cover says in case you're interested:

"Popular music grew out of ragtime, vaudeville and the blues to become global mass entertainment. Yet nearly eighty years after Ma Rainey and Bessie Smith first blazed the trail, have their female successors achieved the recognition and affirmation they deserve?
The first hands-on history of women in rock, pop, and soul, She Bop tells it like it is- on stage, on camera and working in a male-dominated industry. Adding a feminist perspective to her incredible detailed knowledge of the stars and their music, and including an abundance of personal interviews, Lucy O'Brien tells these women's stories and their struggle not only for acceptance, but also for recognition and success, in a culture they are still striving to call their own. She Bop traces the different stages of women's progress in the music industry, from the early years of ragtime and the Jazz Age up to the present."

& the copyright is 1995. I guess there's also a She Bop II but we don't have that yet :/

so i have to write an essay on a "rock music icon" i chose from a skimpy list of only fourty "icons." i hate having to write on subjects i have to chose from a list. however, i was delighted to find kathleen hanna on the list. i'm having trouble finding people in my area to interview. if you could help me out, i'd be very greatful.

answer the following questions:

1. what does "riot grrl" mean to you?

2. how did you discover kathleen's music, how old were you and what was your initial reaction?

3. how have her music and ideals influenced or changed you and your views?

4. how would you describe bikini kill or le tigre to someone who has never heard any kind of rock
music?
