The C.D. Version of the First Two Records is the 1994 first CD release of punk rock band Bikini Kill, collecting their 1992 eponymous EP and their half of the 1993 EP Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah, an album they shared with the band Huggy Bear.[1] The album includes the track "Rebel Girl", which made #27 on the Rolling Stone list of "Most Excellent Songs Of Every Year Since 1967", a playlist assembled by the magazine in 2006 to celebrate its 1,000th issue.[2]

Critical reception[edit]

Allmusic 4.5/5 stars[3]

In its review, Allmusic suggests that the album and its "even noisier follow-up, Pussy Whipped, might be all the Bikini Kill one needs".[4] Characterizing the compilation as "[a]ggressive, lippy, and none-too-disciplined", Rough Guides reviewer Owen James noted that it "nonetheless managed to sound like a triumph of female bonding against the odds".[1] Rolling Stone, which gave the compilation 4 stars, described it as "caustic, daring, and shamelessly didactic, a two-by-four to the chops of patriarchy".[5]
