Wait, wasn't Courtney Love against the Riot grrrl movement? I know she had a bad relationship with the singer of Bikini Kill, and if I recall correctly, her song Olympia was made to mock riot grrrl or something like that. She still said she was a feminist and talked/sung about rape, abuse and all that, but idk if she truly qualified as part of riot grrrl.
This is what CL said about the movement (taken from the Riot grrrl wikipedia article)>Look, you've got these highly intelligent imperious girls, but who told them it was their undeniable American right not to be offended? Being offended is part of being in the real world. I'm offended every time I see George Bush on TV!
On another note, I recently started listening to The Gits (vid related). I'm not sure if they are Riot Grrrl, but I know the singer, Mia Zapata, became some sort of feminist icon after her rape and murder (learning about her death made me want to kms). Apparently her songs/ideals weren't specifically feminist, tho.
I honestly don't know a lot about the band or Mia since her murder hit me so hard that It somehow makes it kind of hard to read more info about the band. But please feel free to give more insight on the band.
Also sorry if my english is shit.
