Playlist for your next riot

Girl-fronted punk bands gave birth to the Riot Grrrl movement. As a result, music played an important role in its culture and the writing of Grrrls on the Side. This playlist is inspired by both the characters from Grrrls and the time period in which it is set—some songs are more modern and others are pure vintage punk. Enjoy!
