Ultimate Riot Grrrl Playlist


The Riot Grrrl movement is feminist core, underground punk movement that started rolling n the early 1990s in the state of Washington, specifically Olympia and its surrounding suburbs. It also has roots in Washington D.C. The movement is a subculture that combines feminism and politics with the everlasting punk style. It's commonly associated with third wave feminism and has since been coined as a musical genre that is an adorable, badass, clusterfuck of female-fronted indie, punk, and rock music. A bulk of Riot Grrrl bands often addressed issues such as rape, domestic abuse, sexuality, racism, patriarchy, and female empowerment. A few main bands associated with the movement are Bikini Kill, Bratmobile, and Heavens to Betsy. Across the board, Riot Grrrl was a subculture based on the DIY aesthetic, that furiously cranked out zines, art, political action, music, activism, encouragement and support and local meetings and discussions across the country. The majority of the Riot Grrrl moment took place in the early 90s and produced a lot of amazing bands that weren't afraid to break the norms and do their growing in public. Riot Grrl made big steps in the summer of '91, so here are some great songs in honor of '18! Most of the following playlist contains music from that time, however, there are a few exceptions because badass music is still badass music and badass girls are still badass girls. After all, music doesn't have an expiration date and neither does Riot Grrrl.
