National Album Day: Live Through This by Hole Chosen By Baby Teeth

For National Album Day we’ve chosen Live Through This by Hole. Maybe an obvious choice, but we’d rather be honest than cool. Iconic female rock stars were (and still are) sadly under represented in music.

Courtney Love is the embodiment of a rock star, yet fiercely female. Her talent as a song writer is often overlooked as other parts of her life are given more attention. Certain behaviour is applauded and celebrated in male rock stars yet continues to this day to be frowned upon in her.

Hole are so important to us, as a female centric yet wildly commercially successful band. They’ve sold a tonne more albums than people often realise. Their legacy shows girls like us that it isn’t impossible. From the wildly iconic opening chords of Violet, Love’s poetic and raw lyrics on Live Through This, paints an often painfully honest portrait of the female experience.

You’ll be hard pressed to find many successful albums full of absolutely banging tunes that explore sexual exploitation, body image, pregnancy, motherhood, post natal depression, female rage and other experiences women can relate to in such a way. If you haven’t listened to it in a while, listen again.

Live Through This by Hole, 1994. Chosen by the band Babyteeth. Babyteeth are playing at Rockshot Mag’s night of Curated music at The Finsbury for #BlogtoberFest2018 on Wednesday 17th October 2018.
