Bikini Kill was a punk rock band of the riot grrrl movement, formed in Olympia, Washington in October of 1990. The group was well known and notorious for its radical feminist lyrics and fiery performances. Their music was abrasive, hardcore-influenced punk with plenty of hooks.

While occasionally collaborating (politically and creatively) with high-profile acts such as Nirvana and Joan Jett, Bikini Kill was well known for shunning major labels and the mainstream rock press. After two full-length albums, several EPs and two compilations, the group disbanded in 1998.
