Chart-topper Alanis Morisette was defined as "angry" (though not obviously threatening) for her revenge song "You Oughta Know," while Lydia Lunch's garbled shrieks and growls go unheard. Avril Lavinge, a popular, twiggy recording-industry version of pop "punk," sings traditional teenage-girl love songs about skater boys, while Kathleen Hanna's lyrics question the motives of Lavinge's beloved. In a larger culture that never fails to compulsively promote the least harmful, most sexualized versions of the angry female, true subversion is once again retreating underground, leaving the real pioneers - who paved the way for MTV's girl-on-girl kiss or a woman publicly castrating her ex-lover - with the fewest accolades.

Varmer op til dette arrangement (ny tid 13.30) med Maria Rahas Cindarella's Big Score. Women of the Punk and Indie Underground
