Pussy Riot’s “Straight Outta Vagina” reminds everyone what gave them life

It’s a total shame that the new Pussy Riot song, “Straight Outta Vagina,” didn’t come out until this week, because I really would have liked to sing it’s refrain over and over again while watching the possible pussy grabber-in-chief during the presidential debates this year. “Don’t be stupid, don’t play dumb, vagina’s where you’re really from,” is the catchy (and English!) refrain of the collective’s new tune, and it’s a lot different from older music they’ve released.

That might have a little something to with the fact that the single was made in collaboration with TV on the Radio’s Dave Sitek and features Desi Mo and Leikeli47. Both the rap verses bring a little something extra to the track that will have you bopping around, singing about all the great things vaginas do — like fill shopping carts, win the race, and go to space, according to the song.

Like I said, it’s catchy AF. Try to get “my pussy, my pussy, is sweet just like a cookie” out of your head. I think Leikeli47 is my favorite part, but I’m biased (I have “strong female hip hop artist”-envy). If you don’t know her, you should look her up right after you play the Pussy Riot song 16 times in a row. She’s from Brooklyn and stays totally anonymous, like all great feminist artists do these days, apparently. Not that one needs a mask or approval from the likes of Jay Z and Skrillex to get in on a pussy riot, but she fits right in with the collective on this track.

I can’t pick my favorite part. It’s either lyrics like”this vagina’s gotta go make numbers,”which is what I’m going to tell my dog every morning when I leave for work. Or maybe it’s the video itself, which was filmed at the The Theatre at the Ace Hotel in Los Angeles and directed by Phillip Lopez.

The premise of the video is a little girl getting a candy vagina from a priestess, who is actually Pussy Riot’s Nadya Tolokonnikova. It’s like Alice in the Wonderland, but with dildos and more feminism. One lyric, lip rapped by the young girl at the end of video goes, “From Russia to the States, we tearing up the place,” and it’s about time every one gets a little angry and “brings the thunder” in the wake of this election season. If Donald Trump becomes president, women are going to need someone who’s gone up against his bestie Vladimir Putin on their side.

The song is just the pussy anthem women need right now. Since Trump’s “grab their pussy” comment, this whole election has become about pussy and nasty women. It’s become about standing up for the rights of pussy, making sure everyone knows the power of the pussy, and making sure that voices that have pussies are heard. Pussy Riot does all of that with this new track.

How do you not want to get out in the streets and chant “don’t be stupid, don’t play dumb, vagina’s where you’re really from” or “wear your vag like a badge of honor?” Thank you, Pussy Riot, for getting shit done.
