About Sleater-Kinney

Harnessing the upheaval of the alt-rock explosion and channeling it into a vigorous mission statement, Sleater-Kinney captured the tenor of their times and expanded at a rapid clip, redefining their music without abandoning their punk rock (or political) ideals. It was not incidental that Sleater-Kinney were an all-female band -- Corin Tucker and Carrie Brownstein's feminism was deeply embedded in their music -- but calling them the best female rock band of their generation is too confining. By every measure, Sleater-Kinney were one of the best bands of their time. Their hot streak began once drummer Janet Weiss joined for 1997's Dig Me Out and ran until 2005's The Woods. When they returned with 2015's No Cities to Love, it was welcomed by their largest audience yet. Weiss left the band prior to 2019's The Center Won't Hold, which brought the band into the adventurous territory they'd explored on 2021's Path of Wellness.
