ROCK Sex: "Rebel Girl!" - Dean Carter > Bikini Kill

ROCK Sex thinks 'she's the queen of the neighborhood'.


Today's connection is the running theme of rebel women.

Dean Carter straddled Rockabilly and Garage Music better than anyone in the mid-'60s.

Here's his roaring homage to his Rebel Girl.

"There's a strange quiet girl I long to meet/ wears tall black boots, walks down the street!"

(Dean also produced acts from his home studio, and the compilation "The Midnite Sound Of The Milky Way" includes two great covers of this cool song; listen to #3 and 20.)

Here's the dance band DNA sampling David Bowie's "Rebel Rebel" behind their freestyle Rap:

And of course here's Kathleen Hanna and Bikini Kill adoring their favorite Riot Grrrl:

Which undoubtedly inspired the group REBEL GIRL into action. And these cohorts.

I got news for you, SHE IS!"
