What Happened to Angry Women in Rock?

That’s the question asked in this Guardian article by Jude Rogers. The argument of the piece is a little muddled. On one hand, there are no angry female music stars like there used to be, but wait, there are! And Lady Gaga and Rihanna are angry, so . . .  optimistic quote from Joan Jett and out!

What I think we’ve been seeing in the course of thinking about the ’90s for this blog is that ’90s-style female anger is thriving right now in the mainstream.

Speaking of which, guess what I just found? That’s right: a video of Taylor Swift throwing that chair. Enjoy.
