Sleater-Kinney is an indie rock trio originally from
Olympia, Washington influenced by the riot grrrl movement of the
1990s. Hailing from Portland, Oregon, the name Sleater-Kinney
is derived from a road of the same name in Lacey, Washington, the
location of one of their early practice spaces.
Sleater-Kinney was founded by bandmembers Corin Tucker and Carrie Brownstein who were later joined by drummer Janet Weiss. Since forming in 1995, the band has remained fiercely faithful to their indie rock and feminist roots. Sleater-Kinney's latest album is 2005's The Woods.

Sleater-Kinney emerged from a series of other bands with their self-titled debut, Sleater-Kinney, on Chainsaw Records in 1995. They continued with more acclaimed albums like Call the Doctor (1996) and Dig Me Out (1997). In 1998, the band recorded "Big Big Lights", the first split single (with Cypher In The Snow) in the series of recordings dealing with women's self defense entitled Free To Fight. Their next few albums pushed the band towards mainstream listeners, culminating in 2002's One Beat. Most of their albums since Call the Doctor have been released through the independent record label Kill Rock Stars. Their seventh album, The Woods, was released in 2005 on Sub Pop Records.
Sleater-Kinney opened for Pearl Jam on the band's tour of Canada in September 2005 (except in St. John's, where Wintersleep opened). In 2006, Sleater-Kinney were part of the line-up for the 2006 Lollapalooza festival, in Chicago.
