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.

Some days KC wishes she had more space in her head for historical dates, family members’ phone numbers, and directions, but alas that space is mostly occupied by lyrics to pop songs she first heard as a tween.
