L7- Pretend We’re Dead
This song instantly became stuck in my head after just one listen to it. The lyrics although simple, were very meaningful and straight to the point pulling no punches. My favorite line is “wake up and smell the coffee, or just say no to individuality”. I really love the message and the creative nature of that lyric.
L7 started in 1985 in L.A. The band consists of all female members who became the “poster girls” of grunge music. They have released 6 albums the most recent Slap- Happy being released in 1999. The band reunited with the original line up in 2014 and continues to tour. I would recommend giving the album Bricks Are Heavy a listen.
