* Janet Weiss – her Top Five Most Influential Bands *

Janet of Sleater-Kinney was briefly interviewed on NPR’s Talk of the
Nation
and asked for her Top Five. Her answer was: 1) Sonic Youth,
2) Television,
3) Minutemen, 4) Bikini Kill, and 5) Led Zeppelin.
But what’s even more
interesting is her response to the follow up
question asking her to explain
the influence of Bikini Kill on the
formation of Sleater-Kinney. Here’s
the archive for the show and
Janet’s segment is towards the very end.
