Music on a Monday - Angry Girl Music

I am dedicating this post to Angry Girl Music after a discussion with a colleague of mine today. We talked of the classic Angry Girl songs like Love is a Battlefield (with some of the scariest choreography I have ever seen) and moved on to talking about albums my step-daughter had catergorised - The Donna's, Lash, Skulker and the Spazzys - as Angry Girl Music. For every girl scorned or in a bad mood, wouldn't you agree that it is fabulous to be able to turn up some high energy tunes and have a good old solo loungeroom mosh (it's ok cos no one can see your bad loungeroom dancing) to use up all that angry energy.
Here are five albums that were catergorised by a teenage girl as Angry Girl Music !

Hole - Live Through This
Spazzys - Aloha ! Go Bananas
The Donnas - Gold Medal
Skulker - Too Fat for Tahiti
Lash - The Beautiful and the Damned

And below are some video clips of the aforementioned artists - turn it up loud and enjoy the ride !


  1. I love this post Samara. I listened to a LOT of angry girl music back in the day. Who can forget L7, Suzie Q, Hole, PJ Harvey's earlier stuff.

  2. You need Ani Difranco's "Untouchable Face" on that list! Got me through some teenage angst over some boys who didn't deserve it...

  3. Nice one, Samara!
    I'll come back to this when the occasion calls for it ;)
