Today I bring you a list, but it is not just any list. Today I bring you a list, of my favorite, girl power-bad ass-musically talented-sometimes middrift bearing- pussycats otherwise known as GIRL GROUPS, in no particular order. I'm also warning you right now that this list has no cohesion and it varies over more than half a century. And if you remember anything from my previous post about my Boyband Boyfrands (click here) then you should know that I know more about pop music than Ms.Spears herself, *whispers softly* I love you Britney...
ON TO THE LIST!
1) Bikini Kill is one of my favorite fem bands because they are just the musical personification of "grrl power." (Although upon research I realized they have a male guitarist, but wateverrr they are still all about fem power okay?) They have rough guitar, no fucks given attitudes and stand up for girls everywhere not trying to make anything "pretty." With zines in hands and sweat dripping during every performance these babes: Kathleen Hannah, Kathi Wilcox and Tobi Vail made a name for themselves and for girl kind in the rough music industry.
While basically all of their songs are very feminist, I think the most feminist in my opinion is "I Like Fucking."
I think their most feminist song probably has to be "Independent Woman part: 1"
I think their most feminist song would be "I Don't Need a Man."
There most feminist song has to be "Don't Save Me"
I couldn't tell you what their most feminist song is, largely because I don't speak Korean however they are the symbol of what international girl power really can do, they stole a ton of awards at the first ever Youtube music awards and they only sort of attempt to speak english, but I like that! DONT GIVE INTO OUR WESTERNISM WE LIKE YOU GUYS FOR YOU!
There most feminist song in my opinion, and this is really a low hanging fruit (pun) and a very obviously pick, but I'm gonna have to say "Cherry Bomb."
There most feminist song has to be "Things Are Changing"
Their most feminist song might just have to be "Wannabe" because it stresses the importance of friendship and that us girls must stick together.
There most feminist song would have to be "Bad Girl featuring Missy Elliott"
Again their most feminist jams would have to be "No Scrubs" or "Unpretty"
As I was writing this I realized how many girl bands I adore, so this is merely part 1. Nothing makes me more excited than discussing these awesome women and everything accomplished or how hard they worked to get there!
So I hope you found this inspiring
and let me know what girls I should include next time!
Have a great day and please keep it sassy,
