I was too young when the Riot Grrl scene was in full swing, so I had no idea it even existed until I found Bikini Kill. I guess I was listening to Joan Jett and made the connection to BK somehow through her. I remember picking up Pussy Whipped and thinking, “What a badass name for a band and an album, I have to get this CD.” And of course once I listened to it I discovered what badass really meant! I then started learning about the Riot Grrl movement, and it opened up whole new areas of music, literature, and most importantly, ideas. So thanks Bikini Kill! Y’all rocked.
