Paste included Alice Bag in our list of the 25 Best Frontwomen of All Time. In the 1970s and 80s, Alice was a feminist leader of the L.A. punk movement with her band The Bags, an abrasive and pioneering hardcore act.
In 2012, the artist, author and activist released her self-titled debut solo record via Don Giovanni. Its follow-up, Blueprint, arrives March 23, and it features collaborations from Kathleen Hanna, Allison Wolfe, and many more.
Today, Bag released the video for “Se Cree Joven,” which she sings entirely in Spanish. The title translates to “she thinks she’s young,” and was inspired by an experience Bag had at a dollar store. “A couple of women were talking about me and my appearance behind my back (they assumed I didn’t speak Spanish),” Bag says. “Instead of giving them a piece of my mind, I walked away and let it fester until it became a song about not giving a shit what other people think.”
Watch the badass and colorful video below.
