Alright, as we head towards Thanksgiving here in the States, the time is right for a new tune from Melissa Brooks and The Aquadolls. I’ve been a fan of The Aquadolls for a long time and I try my best to keep up with what Melissa is up to. A few weeks back Melissa was very pumped to be alongside a legend of all things Girl Power – Kathleen Hanna. One of the many things that keep me tuned in to The Aquadolls is the fact that Melissa is not afraid to right a hit single. I think that way too many artist for whatever reasons shy away from writing a hit, that’s catchy , full of sing along lyrics and hooks, an anthem for a new generation. Melissa has done that with “Girl Riot” , it doesn’t take a genius to see that there is a new generation taking the stage and the spotlight that goes with it. Melissa is a rising star and with that comes the ability to reach thousands of kids who are in search of their heroes, and just like Melissa had Kathleen to look up to, there is a new generation discovering that Melissa Brooks and The Aquadolls are speaking their language.
I’m not afraid of consequences
I’ve gotta do what I’ve gotta do
Ain’t no time for your disrespecting
I’ve got nothing to lose
I fight my own battles baby
And I’m gonna start a war against you
Whatcha gonna do about it, baby?
Stand back and watch me make my move
I’LL START A RIOT!
I’M NOT GONNA STAY QUIET!
YOU MESS WITH ME I’M GONNA FIGHT IT!
