Riot Grrrl is Turning Over In Its Metaphorical Grave

All thanks to the idiotic ramblings of the Vivian Girls.





Sure, Kathleen Hanna may have said "like" about 100 times per interview. But she said it in the context of discussing radical feminism and then turned around and helped create amazing songs like "Double Dare Ya", "Rebel Girl" and many others. From what I can glean, Vivian Girls make shambolic, reverb-drenched indie pop with 60s overtones (so! original!) and talk shit about everyone who isn't a part of their white, hipster world. How fresh! I love when they talk about normal people as if they're SO outsider and other and odd. When all I see are 3 hipster white girls who pretty much seem like every other mainstream high school mean girl but somehow just dress a little kooky.

i. hate. this. band. their album for the most part is really, really, REALLY boring. they claim that they're influenced by nirvana and the wipers, but all i hear is a really shitty version of the shop assistants.
