Happy birthday, Kat Bjelland! (December 9, 1963)
"There’s so many pussy bands on the radio that just aren’t pissed off with anything anymore! Nobody has any balls to say what they honestly feel!"
A day late on this, but happy 50th birthday to Kat Bjelland of Babes in Toyland.
They’re credited as songwriters on Jay Z’s “Holy Grail,” which quotes “Smells Like Teen Spirit.” Also, Sirvana’s “Cut Me Some Slack” gets a Best Rock Song nod.

I had no idea…READ THIS ARTICLE!
“Kurt was good friends with an openly gay student while he was in high school. While being friends with this student, Kurt was taunted and called homophobic slurs but even with this constant bullying, Kurt once said he was, “gay in spirit,” and that he was probably bisexual. Kurt is even quoted as saying that he wishes he were gay ‘just to piss off homophobes.’
But Kurt didn’t just condemn homophobia; he also questioned the notion of masculinity. ‘I’ve always had a problem with the average macho man – they’ve always been a threat to me.’”
Also quoted in the article on the topic of rape: “Rape is one of the most terrible crimes on earth and it happens every few minutes. The problem with groups who deal with rape is that they try to educate women about how to defend themselves. What really needs to be done is teaching men not to rape. Go to the source and start there.”
"At this point I have a request for our fans. If any of you in any way hate homosexuals, people of different color, or woman, please do this one favour for us - leave us the fuck alone! Don’t come to our shows and don’t buy our records." Kurt Cobain, Incesticide booklet.

The juxtaposition of the young ballerinas onstage illustrates the dynamic between dancing as an art form and dancing for the sake of others’ visual and sexual gratification. The ballerinas featured in the video are also possibly referential to Love herself, who took ballet classes for a great portion of her childhood, and later ended up working as a stripper in her teenage and early adult years.
