Video Premiere: Craig Owens, “Rebel Girl” (Bikini Kill cover for charity) – Alternative Press

Bikini Kill’s “Rebel Girl” ranks as one of the best songs of all time. Craig Owens of Chiodos just released a cool cover of it. It’s interesting to hear a guy sing this ultimate anthem of girl love and empowerment. We used to talk about gay singers “queering” the lyrics; is Owens “unqueering” them? Good song, good cover, great causes: Girls Rock Camp Allowance and Equal Rights Advocates. And good timing, considering the current showdown over the Employment Non-Discrimination Act.

  1. Cool, not a big fan of Bikini Kill’s sound, but I love that song and it’s sound.
