Song(s) Of The Day: International Women’s Day Edition


Happy International Women’s Day! In honour of the occasion, here’s a selection of songs from a bunch of badass women in music:

Le Tigre – Hot Topic
We’ll start things off with this song from Le Tigre that name-checks a lot of great ladies, musical and otherwise.

Hazel Dickens – The Rebel Girl
A true legend of folk and bluegrass, Hazel Dickens is just one of the many women referenced in the Le Tigre song above.

Sleater-Kinney – Get Up
The Hot Rock just turned 20 this year. And 20 years later it’s still my favourite Sleater-Kinney album.

Queen Latifah – Ladies First
A classic from Queen Latifah’s debut album, All Hail The Queen.

Helen Reddy – I Am Woman
I just had to include this one too.

Joan Jett & The Blackhearts – Fresh Start
And finally – Joan fucking Jett. ‘Nuff said.

If you’re in Austin next week for SXSW, Joan Jett will be playing the Interactive Bash at Stubb’s on March 12.
