How’s this for girl power? Rookie Mag’s latest theme song of the month is a star-studded number called “Go Forth, Feminist Warriors”. Appropriately so, it features a who’s who of ever-talented musical ladies, including Carrie Brownstein, Tegan and Sara, Dum Dum Girls’ Dee Dee Penny, Kimya Dawson, Waxahatchee’s Katie Crutchfield, Thao Nguyen, and Aimee Mann.
Described as “a feminist We Are the World'”, it was produced by Chad Clark and written by Katy Davidson (The Gossip) and Marianna Ritchey (Lloyd & Michael) with the help of the Rookie staff.
Without giving too much away, some choice bits to look out for in the synth-y pop piece: cameos from Rookie founder Tavi Gevinson and Ted Leo, fun but totally on-point lyricism (“They mansplain every night and day, but they can’t mansplain our freedom away”), and Brownstein rapping about pizza (“We want the whole damn thing! You can’t just leave us with the crust!”). Check it out below.
