Bikini Kill

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 two full-length albums, several EPs and two compilations, the group disbanded in 1998.

The band was formed at Evergreen State College by Kathleen Hanna, Kathi Wilcox and Tobi Vail. They began working together on a fanzine called Bikini Kill, and with the addition of Billy Karren, formerly of The Go Team on guitar, formed a band of the same name. Hanna wrote most of the band's songs and encouraged a female-centric environment at their shows, urging girls to come to the front of the stage and handing out lyric sheets to them.

After an independent demo cassette, Revolution Girl Style Now, Bikini Kill released The Bikini Kill EP on the indie label Kill Rock Stars. Produced by Ian MacKaye years active 1990–1998 origin Olympia, Washington country United States music genre Punk
