Hello Rocksmith fans!
This week we take a trip back to the 90s with three songs from the riot grrrl era of punk rock! Fun fact, it’s been TEN WEEKS since our last mixed artist pack.
Today we can confirm (via Xbox NZ) a brand new artist to music games, @babesintoyland brings their 1997 single Bruise Violet (Fontanelle – 1992) to Rocksmith Remastered!
Riot grrrl is an underground feminist punk movement that began in the early 1990s in Washington state (particularly Olympia) and the greater Pacific Northwest. It also had origins in Washington, D.C., and spread to at least 26 countries. It is a subcultural movement that combines feminist consciousness and punk style and politics. It is often associated with third-wave feminism, which is sometimes seen as having grown out of the Riot Grrrl movement. It has also been described as a musical genre that came out of indie rock, with the punk scene serving as an inspiration for a musical movement in which women could express themselves in the same way men had been doing for the past several years.
