Bikini Kill

Bikini Kill was a US radical feminist punk rock band and one of the pioneers of the riot grrl movement. Consisting of Kathleen Hanna, Kathi Wilcox, Tobi Vail and Billy Karren, the band wrote songs collaboratively and encouraged female centricity at gigs. Due to constant media attention and what they saw as misrepresentation and commodification of the riot grrl movement, Kathleen Hanna called for a media blackout amongst riot grrls. Check out their Rebel Girl.
