In the 1990s, American punk rock band Bikini Kill was one of the central bands of the riot grrrl movement, which combined feminist lyrics, a punk rock ethos and aggressive live shows to inspire a generation of young women into activism. Formed in 1990 in Olympia, Washington by singer and songwriter Kathleen Hanna, guitarist Billy Karren, bassist Kathi Wilcox, and drummer Tobi Vail when they met at Evergreen State College, the group instantly created a buzz with their concerts and self-made fanzines. They released their independent demo cassette, Revolution Girl Style Now!, in 1991, followed by the Bikini Kill EP (produced by Ian MacKaye of Minor Threat and Fugazi) on the indie label Kill Rock Stars in 1992. Following that, the band released a split album with English riot grrrl group Huggy Bear in 1993 (Our Troubled Youth/Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah), and subsequently two more studio albums: Pussy Whipped (1993) and Reject All American (1996). After considerable media attention, the group disbanded in 1997, but reformed in 2019, announcing a limited series of reunion shows.
