It's true that Bikini Kill are not well known for their melodic pop songs, that readily get radio play. But this collection of their greatest hits including the student anthem "Rebel Girl" is a fine representitive of why Bikini Kill are reknown world-wide for being the hottest girl band around. For a huge fan, or for anyone who has never heard of the 'Kill, this album is well worth a listen... go on, release the innner riott grrl !!!

Nine songs, fifteen minutes, the greatest singles collection ever recorded.

Need more? Well, the opening trio, recorded with Joan Jett, are certainly the best-produced BK tracks and are compulsive listening. The downbeat 'The Anti-Pleasure Dissertation' and the riotous 'I Like Fucking' ("Hey! Do you believe there's ANYTHING except troll-guy reality?") are Bikini Kill's best songs. And, like the best bands, they know when they've outstayed their welcome. A short, sharp shock which still sounds fantastic years later and should appeal to all alternative music fans, rather than just riot girls and guys.

A brief look at SPIN's editorial review of THE SINGLES 2 Dec 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I'm really only writing this review for the sake of pointing out how ...SPIN magazine is - often criticized by the band for it's superficial reporting of the punk underground, we find that the dumb ...can't even review a CD properly...right on the main Amazon.com listing for this album, SPIN describes the CD:
"The Singles boils down the band's brief career into a package as compact and abrasive as a scouring pad."
No, THE SINGLES is not a career retrospective. Bikini Kill was not a major-label band that put out albums and then promoted them with radio-ready single releases plucked from it's core. Their 7" 'singles' were completely original, previously unreleased work crammed onto 45 rpm vinyl. For a long time, these nine songs were only available to those with turntables, but after the band broke up Kill Rock Stars put that material out as _The Singles_ on CD and cassette. But it's obvious SPIN did little more than look at the albums cover before writing up that short, misinformed and completely useless review (the songs here are never described, the writer merely throws out adjectives commonly used to describe the band's sound and other cute wordplay).
Anyway, this is a really good collection of some of the bands best work, but only the song REBEL GIRL is also available on their albums, which are well worth owning.

I believe in the radical possibilities of pleasure, babe 21 Aug 2004
By Megzi - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Bikini Kill were a phenomenal band, too bad they aren't around anymore. Kathleen Hanna screams about what it's like to be a woman; the pain, anger, and frusteration. She is bold, blunt, and doesn't hold anything back. 'I Like F*cking' is possibly one of the best feminist songs ever written. All the other songs are excellent and I can't pick standouts because they're ALL standouts. Especially recommended to teenage girls.

Sweetly corrosive 18 Jun 2002
By David Fiore - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is probably the B-K CD I listen to most (if "Feels Blind" and especially "Outta Me" were on it, i might hardly ever listen to anything else--by anyone...). From the beginning (the Joan Jett produced troika "New Radio", "Rebel Girl"--the best verson--, and "Demi Rep", my personal favourite, to the end, it's an astonishing experience, you really get the feeling that this band is composed of ferociously tender people, with alot on their minds, and enough of a sense of humour to avoid becoming annoying about it. No one who was alive in the nineties should go another minute into the twenty-first century without hearing this...

the singles 5 Mar 2002
By "the_riot_dyke" - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The Singles is my favorite Bikini Kill record because it represents perfectly feminist issues, personal struggle--and Joan Jett and Kathleen Hanna playing "Miss Mary Mack" doesn't hurt either. The Singles is what teenage girls would write if teenagers wrote really, really great things. Juvenile sex exploits and childhood abuse are written with a maturity that seems almost contradictory to the shocking accuracy with which these abuses are portrayed. The songs are written in blood with an emotional cord that plugs right into yr gut. It's experiences that all girls have gone through, only written so that everyone can understand.

Review from a country music fan... 30 Mar 2000
By JLLinNY - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I heard about this through a movie and bought the first one of their CDs I found. The first time I listened to it I thought "what a waste of $" and put it away. About 2 wks ago I put it back in the CD player and it's been there ever since. I LOVE it. Incredibly un-intimidated, un-inhibited... I have recomended it to at least 7 people so far
