ROCK Orgy: 'Hot Topic' + Women Who Rock!


LE TIGRE: Johanna Fateman, JD Samson, Kathleen Hanna



ROCK Orgies are songs that celebrate other artists or songs.


After helping spearhead the Riot Grrrl Movement in the early 90's, a Punk feminist running partner with Grunge and activist youth, KATHLEEN HANNA eventually struck new courses with the Electro-Punk trio, LE TIGRE.

"Hot Topic" gives due shout-outs to tons of female innovators in the arts, sports, activism, and music.

Here's a cool video by Wynne Greenwood that complements that with even more great influencers.

LE TIGRE -"Hot Topic" (1999)



On the music side, the song salutes sonic rebels like Yoko Ono, Cibo Matto, The Butchies, Sleater-Kinney, UT, Ann Peebles, Nina Simone, The Slits, Hazel Dickens, Aretha Franklin, Joan Jett, Mia X, and The Need. Winners all!


"Don't you stop
We won't stop
Don't you stop..."
