Cherry Bomb.

I grew up in a household of men. I guess that’s why I am so mouthy and blunt. My brother and dad used to say there were no really good female musicians. At the time, I didn’t know any better to defend my sex. I felt so pissed off that there were no female artists I could look up too. By the time I got to college, I was only listening to chicks. I was like the fucking call-in center for feminist lesbian singers. You name it, I was on it. I thought, at that time, it was a “FUCK YOU” to my dad and brothers.

It wasn’t.

The ultimate fuck you to sexism in the music industry is knowing MORE than the men do. As Mr. Bulwer-Lytton put it, “The pen is mightier than the sword, [mutha fucker].” Knowledge is power.

So! If any of you ladies are feeling oppressed by your male counterparts in the game of “This band is cooler than yours”, then get reading. Learn about the origins of music of band members. Read all those pretentious online magazines like Pitchfork (I do hate those pompous fuckers). Get informed. Then, you can bask in the light of knowing MORE than the arrogant fucks around you.
