Perhaps first generation riot grrrl band Bratmobile's most popular track from their 2000 album Ladies, Women and Girls, "Gimme Brains," is one of the band's most empowering songs - with shout-able lyrics and a defiant swagger the lyrics proclaim, "a boy is good for nothing, can't give you nothing/ I'm sick of nothing." The song is ostensibly about jilting "all the f--kin' boys/ in the f--kin' bands," but is, on a deeper level, about the implications of romance within a radical and feminist framework. As vocalist for the band, Allison Wolfe said in an interview with Perfect Sound Forever, this, and a few other Bratmobile songs are about, "how girls go out with a guy in a band and they think that's cool, but really the guy is a jerk. You have to become your own punk rock dream come true. You need to respect yourself and be your own star." "Gimme Brains" has the melodics of a pop song, underscoring the clever joke of the refrain that begs, "gimme brains for breakfast, baby/ gimme more for lunch" and on, asserting not only a joking vengeful violence but also the desire for a thoughtful male lover. This standout track is featured on Ladies, Women and Girls, the band's second studio album, recorded after a six year hiatus.
