My favorite lesbian pop song of all time is the angry, alternative dyke anthem, “What’s Up?” by 4 Non Blondes.
The song’s Wikipedia article mentions that the song makes both “top one hit wonders” lists and “worst songs ever” lists. I like it. There are so few female created rock songs that are fully and unapologetically rock and roll, and 4 Non Blondes fills the vacuum a bit with their hit.
I also wonder why the early nineties had such a fascination with looking ugly and dirty. “Grunge” as a name and style infected the youth culture at large—a sort of average, lazy boy’s punk.
