Bikini Kill: 20th Anniversary Reissue
Bikini Kill Records
In one of the early-1990s riot grrrl zines, Bikini Kill threw a challenge at the young women of America: "Find the biggest bitch in town and start a band with her." Two decades later, that wise advice keeps making noise around the world, from Pussy Riot to the kids in your town who just started their band last week. BK’s 1992 debut EP remains one of the all-time great American punk statements. These rebel grrrls turn feminist rage into rowdy rock & roll fun, ranting and chanting over primal riffs like "Suck My Left One." They went on to make even stronger records, but the ballad "Feels Blind" sums them up – desperate, defiant, unkillable, inspirational.
