Arpy Yang WOST 1120 - Lesbian Culture December 18, 2012 The band Le Tigre is a Punk-Feminist-Electronic trio that consists of Kathleen Hanna, Johanna Fateman, and JD Samson.

Their hopes as a band is to influence other feminist bands so, one day there will be sections in the music store specifically for feminists.

When asked if they pin feminism down to any one way of being Hanna replied; "Well, it's really interesting, because people are often like, "oh, you guys are feminists' and they just assume that this means this one thing. There's so many different kinds of feminists. There's cultural feminism, marxist feminism, socialist feminists, materialist feminists... there's all kinds! You can prescribe yourself to one position, or you can leave things open, so that the way that I do my feminism isn't the only way that anybody can do it. There's no rulebook, no dress code, no 'way to act', no way to protest, just people coming together." Punk Feminist Electronic Ani DiFranco:

1998 "They were digging a new foundation
in Manhattan
And they discovered a slave cemetery there
May their souls rest easy
now that lynching is frowned upon
And we've moved on
to the electric chair..." - Fuel "They told you your music
could reach millions,
that the choice was up to you
You told me they always
pay for lunch
and they believe in what I do
And I wonder
will you miss your old friends
once you've proven what you're worth?
Yeah I wonder
when you're a big star
will you miss the earth?" "What happens when eons of feminine wisdom are buried under the shifting sands of important men and their machines? What happens when women lose control over the fundamental processes of their lives? What would happen if women were encouraged to believe in themselves, their bodies, and their instincts?"

- Excerpt from "Birth Matters" "And the birthing woman shall regain her place in a circle of women in a sacred space. Turn off the machines, put away the knives; this amendment shall deliver from bondage midwives." Works Cited

what I should have done
I just sing
what I wish I could say
and hope somewhere
some woman hears my music
and it helps her through her day
I'm no heroine
I still answer to the other half of the race
I don't fool myself
like I fool you
I don't have the power
we just don't run this place

A good way to do that is by covering probably the most well-known rock band of all time.
