    In a move that’s most certainly punk, original riot grrrl Kathleen Hanna (Bikini Kill, Le Tigre), with her label Bikini Kill, today releases the soundtrack to the 2013 documentary, The Punk Singer. (Somewhat of an anti-establishment gesture as most releases these days drop on Fridays, a recent, though “official” switch from the long-established release day of Tuesday.)

    It’s par for the course for the punk singer, an outspoken feminist, advocate for reproductive rights, and central figure of the Riot Grrrl movement of the early ‘90s. This digital-only release features songs from Hanna’s three Riot Grrrl projects: Bikini Kill, Le Tigre, and her recently reprised outfit, The Julie Ruin. And yes, it blessedly includes “Rebel Girl,” the righteously girl-positive anthem of the times.

    Hanna was was revealed to have Lyme disease in the film and continues to struggle with her health—her work with the Julie Ruin is at the moment on indefinite hiatus. The film features appearances from Kim Gordon, Carrie Brownstein, Corin Tucker, Joan Jett, and Hanna’s husband (and Beastie Boy) Adam Horovitz, among other figures in the scene, and ranks as a must-see for fans of the grunge era and its many, essential offshoots.
