The Linda Lindas Blare "Racist, Sexist Boy" at the Library
Teenage girls in uniform blaring "Racist sexist boy... we will rebuild what you destroy" in a public library. Can it get anymore punk?
The Linda Lindas were recently invited to perform a 40 minute set of original music for the Los Angeles Public Library's AAPI Heritage Month celebration. The half Asian/half Latinx band featuring "two sisters, a cousin and their close friend," rocked the internet with their refrain "Poser! Blockhead! Riff raff! Jerk face!", which I am subsequently declaring my new road-rage anthem. Their performance, which has now gone viral, has received nods of approval from the likes of Rage Against the Machine's Tom Morello and Sonic Youth's Thurston Moore. Shocker- they've scored a record deal with veteran LA punk label Epitaph Records.
