I know I'm starting to sound like some dude constantly harping on his old favorites, but the reissue of Bikini Kill's singles compilation couldn't not be mentioned. 25-some years in, these songs still are such a monumental triumph, calling patriarchy, harassment and prejudice towards women to order, before ripping right through it.

It was awesome seeing Kathleen Hanna perform with the Julie Ruin last year – she's a bona fide hero. Their show was great in and of itself, so they didn't need to, but lord was it great that they did: ending the show with the defining rallying cry of female confidence: "Rebel Girl".
