New contributor Jess Meany here with a quick story. I had a good spell of a hangover this past weekend and thought to myself “I’m going to sit in the dark and put together a playlist of the most brutal and badass female-powered hardcore bands I know.” I wanted to put something together that was really going to fuel what was left of my afternoon. So here it is. I dedicate this playlist to finding the deepest, most worthless corners of your mind and rattling them awake. Thanks to Krista Ciminera, the vocal mastermind behind Sorrows to help me build this playlist, and to Meg for humoring me in posting this bad girl up.
Not all bands on the list are currently active, but many are and there’s still some great archives online of everyone on the list. Hope everyone found a new favorite band! Go ahead and post some of your own favorite aggressively awesome and talented female musicians in the comments section–I need something to listen to for the rest of the week.
