Autostraddle has been around for SEVEN years, and we’ve been making playlists that whole damn time!
These workout songs will make you want to wave your hands/arms/whole body in the air like you just don’t care.
Whenever it’s feeling a little too dark and gloomy for me, this playlist makes me remember that summer is just a little bit away; I want to show off my midriff and shake my ass. Hopefully, it’ll do the same for you too.
All the songs you’ll need to create a magical atmosphere during your romantic evening at the roller rink. Spandex bodysuit not included.
You drag your limp body as penance from the bed into the kitchen to pray at its effervescent, sodium-free altar — but the gods are not pleased. The last La Croix is gone.
If you were a popular band in the late 90s/early 2000s but you never appeared on Charmed, then did you even exist in the first place?
Dozens of female artists have penned misandrist anthems to help heal our collective rage by commiserating with our frustrations. Here are 19 of them!
This happens to a lot of us — like, a lot a lot of us. And we’ve got to laugh it off, what else can we do? I mean, it’s likely to happen again.
“We can have unlimited juice?!? This party is gonna be off the HOOK!”
There’s nothing more adorable, heart-warming, or deeply inspiring as a tried-and-true rock song played by children’s instruments in a soothing manner. I promise.
“There is nothing I love more than sharing a deafeningly silent, poignant moment with 300 other audience members; grinning wide through a rousing musical number that makes me want to stand and cheer; or tearing up at a matinee with the gray-haired woman seated beside me.”
The Autostraddle staff has gone through their tapes, CDs and playlists to share a little corner of their past selves.
A collection of Christmas songs sung by country music stars who just so happen to be women.
Whether you’re staying in, waiting in line, or buying a big-screen TV online at 12:01 AM, you could probably use a little more Drake, anyway.
This playlist is best enjoyed in the range of 20 – 20,000 Hz.
Break out your stew recipes and hot cocoa mix, sharpen your pumpkin-carving knife, unearth your slippers from the back of the closet, press play, and settle in for the fall.
These are the songs that encompass all the feelings in my tiny heart about getting free, running away, doing the stupid and impossible things that don’t make sense, and figuring it out from there.
It’s lovely and strange how a song can cast light on memories of people you haven’t thought about in years, can press urgently on that soft sad spot we carry for our past.
I have put together a mix that spans genres but never stops screaming “BBQ, Y’ALL!” Which is key, I think.
We hope you and your gal pals enjoy these songs on your Thelma and Louise-esque roadtrip, wherein you play by your own rules, take no prisoners and bring out the best in each other.
