Bikini Kill photographed by Wikipedia
Bikini Kill was a punk band of the Riot Grrrl movement formed in Olympia, Washington in October of 1990 (see 1990 in music). The group was infamous for its radical feminist lyrics and fiery performances. While occasionally collaborating (politically and creatively) with high–profile acts such as Nirvana and Joan Jett, Bikini Kill was well known for shunning major labels and the mainstream rock press. After four full–length albums and several EPs, the group disbanded in 1998.
