Hanna, a former stripper[edit]

Was Hanna really once a stripper? There's no mention of that on her wikipedia page. --Slashme 06:15, 19 December 2005 (UTC)

Yup. She talks about it here- http://www.geocities.com/SunsetStrip/Basement/8963/khinterview.html Rsm99833

Feminism[edit]

Could someone please specify what kind of feminism the group espouses (liberal, radical, pro-sex, anti-sex) ? Because this is only mentioned briefly and the only longer description is the reference to the NOFX song - which doesn't give their side. Anyone know? Crito2161 02:18, 14 June 2007 (UTC)

I dont know anything about NOFx, but the feminism everyone mentions is simply a "sick of it" type thing. Bikini Kill protest rape and incest and the all around degradation of women in general. It's not pro- or anti- sex, but anti taking advantage of the deep emotional feelings women tack on to their sexual relationships. Their music is also meant to encourage bonds between women in their mutual understanding of glass ceilings and double standards. I hope this isn't too little too late. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 67.162.161.217 (talk) 18:55, 3 August 2007
I would say radical and possibly pro-sex. They wanted to change the system not just be assimilated. For info in the book Dance of Days http://www.akashicbooks.com/danceofdaysreissue.htm . Please sign comments. Jonpatterns (talk) 10:14, 5 June 2012 (UTC)

Etymology of the Band Name[edit]

Just curious, is there any connection with the band's name to the infamous "Bikini Killer" serial killer Charles Sobhraj? And if so, is it worth noting in the article as a small tidbit?

User with an agenda[edit]

Note that User:Scarlet257 seems to have a project of excising references to Bikini Kill from various articles. See Special:Contributions/Scarlet257 In some cases, the references are unsupported, but in other cases the references are supported. --Larrybob 23:38, 3 December 2007 (UTC)

Kathy Acker and Kathleen Hanna[edit]

Didn't Kathy Acker urge Kathleen Hanna to form a band after she won a contest where the prize was Acker would join her in a poetry reading? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 66.63.200.118 (talk) 22:08, 10 December 2007 (UTC)

"Related Bands"[edit]

I removed the "Related Bands" section from this article. It simply listed band members' current and past relationships with other notable musicians. The individual pages for the band members already contain this information. In isolation, this information isn't relevant to the band as a whole. Additionally, most of this information was unsourced and some of it was incorrect. Shrilldrella (talk) 18:30, 17 December 2009 (UTC)

Awkward sentence[edit]

Bikini Kill toured in London, England to begin working with Huggy Bear, releasing a joint recording together and touring the UK.. I don't think they "toured in London, England". Even given London's size, that would've been a pretty lame tour. The sentence in general is very badly written.VolunteerMarek 00:29, 22 February 2012 (UTC)

FEATURED ARTICLE PUSHHHHH Check list of what needs to be improved?[edit]

It'd be nice if anyone could list anything specific kind of gaps to aim to fill that needs researching, if know anyway? Face-smile.svg

I'll help out as much as I can, kinda limited to what I can dig up tho cuz I'm no expert other than liking the music (from the internet lol) the history is all American to me lol Face-smile.svg --Mistress Selina Kyle (Α⇔Ω ¦ ⇒✉) 23:49, 1 March 2012 (UTC)

I noted one problem with just plain ol' grammar and style which needs to be fixed and there's a bunch more in the article. The article is also quite short and just generally needs expandin', as well as some more "high quality sources" - which is what the reviewers look for. Tracking down some free images to include would also be nice.
In terms of actual content, the first thing that springs to mind is that they were sometimes wary of being associated too closely with the Riot Grrrl thing - of course they were supportive but they felt that BK was just their band and they disliked being turned into "spokespersons" for the movement. I'm sure one can find some sources on that, though here, I'm just remembering stuff from 15+ years ago.VolunteerMarek 00:46, 2 March 2012 (UTC)
Also, I'd recommend scaling back the aspirations here and shooting for GA status first. It's pretty far off from FA level.VolunteerMarek 00:50, 2 March 2012 (UTC)
The biography section has no references. That should be the first priority. The standard for Featured Articles has changed significantly since the old days. 2006 Featured Article = 2012 Good Article. Kaldari (talk) 20:55, 4 March 2012 (UTC)
If that.VolunteerMarek 21:02, 4 March 2012 (UTC)
If I get things done early tonight I will look around on JSTOR and EBSCOhost --Guerillero | My Talk 19:40, 6 March 2012 (UTC)

chronological error[edit]

> After breaking up in 1997, a collection of singles were released only on vinyl between 1995 to 1996, titled The Singles. > After breaking up in 1997 > Between 1995 to 1996 could someone fix these dates please? 83.100.233.169 (talk) 16:33, 18 July 2013 (UTC)

Thanks, I have fixed it with this edit. benzband (talk) 12:11, 19 July 2013 (UTC)
