So I was at a self-described riot grrrl party last night, and started griping to a friend about how no actual riot grrrl music had been played yet. I mean, you can’t advertise a riot grrrl party and then play Rihanna at it, can you?
Just as I was saying this, “Rebel Girl” came on. Next was “Deceptacon”. And thus I felt like an idiot. Then again, those were the only vaguely riot grrrl songs of the night that I noticed – and counting Le Tigre is a stretch – so clearly the DJ just hated me and timed those to invalidate my argument. The bastard.
Anyway, this post is just a long excuse for posting a Sleater-Kinney video. Enjoy:
