Sleater Kinney

Sleater Kinney was a vital part of the riot grrl and punk movements. Founded by Corin Tucker and Carrie Brownstein, previously in riot grrl bands Heavens to Betsy and Excuse 17, the band was a pival rock band of the turn of the 21st century. Their lyrics mesh the personal and the political, calling against war, traditionalism, gender roles and consumerism from feminism and left wing perspectives.  In 1998 they recorded Big Big Lights for Free to Fight, a series of recordings dealing with women’s self defence.
