ROCK Sex: "When She Walks, The Revolution's Coming!"
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-60's. 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 this CD collection of those singles includes two great covers of this cool song; listen to #3 and 20.)
DEAN CARTER -"Rebel Woman" (1967)
Here's the dance band DNA sampling David Bowie's "Rebel Rebel" behind their freestyle Rap:

And of course here's our Kathleen Hanna and BIKINI KILL adoring their favorite Riot Grrrl:
BIKINI KILL -"Rebel Girl" (1993)
Which undoubtedly inspired the group REBEL GIRL into action.
"That girl thinks she's the queen of the neighborhood
I got news for you, SHE IS!"
