Thanks to Pitchfork for turning me on to this great video of former Bikini Kill singer, Kathleen Hanna, telling her story of an evening that got a bit out of hand, the planting of the seeds to a song that changed contemporary rock and roll, and the personal effect, or rather domino effect, it continued to make on her life.
The story is a touching, bittersweet and funny tribute to friendship, loss of innocence and the recklessness of youth. Kathleen punctuates the story with a rousing version of her Riot Grrrl anthem "Rebel Girl."
This video should be considered NSFW.
Bonus video: Kathleen lends her dance skills to Sonic Youth's "Bull In The Heather" video.
Thanks to OurHitParade and ThurstonMoore for the uploads to YouTube.
