Spotify Playlist: Barb Wire Dolls’ playlist of fearless frontwomen

Posted by on May 16, 2017

If your band is badass enough for Lemmy Kilmister to offer you a deal with his label, you’ know there’s something going on. In 2015, the late Motorhead frontman saw the female-fronted Greek quintet at the Whisky a Go-Go and signed them to Motorhead Music. With their new album, Rub My Mind, coming out on June 16th on the label, the band is getting set to head out on the Warped Tour this summer. Barb Wire Dolls vocalist Isis Queen made a playlist for Metal Insider of her Top Ten songs featuring fearless frontwomen.

L7, Shitlist”

Bikini Kill, “Rebel Girl”
Self-explanatory, but the deeper you look, the more you find Kathleen Hannah’s statements ultra-progressive and empowering, and frightening to a male dominated music scene (and world)…
