Riot-Girl Spotlight: Gimme Brain by Bratmobile

Today has been spent with my head inside the book, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. Which is why this post is short and sweet. It’s a good thing there isn’t much more to say about this song other than that I am in love with it. Bratmobile have always been a leading force in the world of Riot Girl music from it’s earliest days but it took a while for me to really enjoy it. I wasn’t a big fan when I became interested in the movement. In those days I was more into the screaming and angry, less political not-quite-riot-girl stuff like Jack Off Jill, Babes in Toyland and Hole. I knew about Bratmobile and Bikini kill but I don’t think I really appreciated them until much later. So, what do you think? Have you ever grown into a band? I think that most bands I enjoy to-date are bands that I’ve grown to love. Rather than sporadic summer-romances.
