Our single of the week comes from Hollywood’s Frankie and the Studs. Out today, ‘(Not Your) Victim’ is some top drawer empowering feminist indierock, heavy on the rock for the guitar solo – and the Gen-Xers amongst us will be thrilled to learn that frontwoman Frankie is the daughter of Guns N’ Roses/Kathy Valentine/Slash’s Snakepit/MC5 guitarist, Gilby Clarke. She took her first steps on a tour bus and was playing in her first band at the age of 11 years old. Frankie says:

“’(Not Your) Victim’ is a song inspired by the inherent strength women possess. Through the challenges of living in a patriarchal society, we can never have enough reminders of our innate superpowers as women. Women supporting women is a powerful force to be reckoned with and this song reminds us to do just that.”
