Le Tigre is an American electroclash trio formed in New York in 1998 by Bikini Kill vocalist Kathleen Hanna. Initially envisioned as a live back up band for Hanna's solo moniker Julie Ruin, Le Tigre mixed the leftist politics and feminism of riot grrrl with fun electronic samples and lo-fi beats. Other members included Johanna Fateman and JD Samson. JD joined Le Tigre as a full member when co-founder Sadie Benning left the band before the Feminist Sweepstakes album. JD had previously worked with the band as the roadie and operator of the slide show created by Sadie Benning for Le Tigre's live performances of the first record. The self-proclaimed underground electro-feminist performance artists combined visuals, music, and dance into their performances.

    Play it so safe to stay on top. Shake it, imitate it, but it still sounds old.
    We just can't understand why the man calls it lo-fi.
    So get your bags packed now and I'll meet you on the outside.
    "X"-out all self-supervision... get your keys out, now start the ignition.
    We're on the verge of... All right!
