Celebrated as one of the most prolific bands of the riot grrrl movement, Sleater-Kinney is an all-female rock band formed in 1994 by singer/ guitarists Corin Tucker and Carrie Brownstein. Based in Olympia, Washington, the duo performed with different drummers until Janet Weiss joined the roster in 1996. Hailed for their fierce principles, innovative indie rock songs, and strong feminist beliefs, the three musicians became part of the punk movement in the American Northwest and released a self-titled debut album in 1995. Call the Doctor was released in 1996, followed by Dig Me Out in 1997 and The Hot Rock in 1999. Their 2000 release, All Hands On the Bad One, reached number 11 on Billboard's Alternative Albums Chart, followed by 2002's One Beat (which went to number 5) and 2005's The Woods (which peaked at number 2). Sleater-Kinney disbanded in 2006 and did not record again until 2015's No Cities to Love, which reached number 18 on the Billboard 200. A concert album, Live in Paris, was released in 2017. 2019's The Center Won't Hold marked Weiss' final album with the band, leaving Sleater-Kinney's two co-founders to record the 2021 album Path of Wellness as a duo. Tucker and Brownstein returned in 2024 with the band's eleventh album, Little Rope.
