By exploring the links between love and rage, Sleater-Kinney becomes part of a long tradition of lyrical explorers. From Shakespeare's tragic love stories to James Baldwin's courageous explorations of human desire, the bitter edge of heartache is a known source of great art. "One More Hour" knocked the socks off the bored music critics faced with the post-Nirvana era. Read on to find out how the staunchly indie riot grrrl trio made it happen.
On the Charts"Sleater-Kinney have never had a hit," said Rolling Stone in 2003, "but for a devoted audience, especially what's left of the underground, they are more than just the best. They are the last band standing."
Sleater-Kinney is a die-hard indie band, not a hit-factory. But considering all their refusals of big-label offers, they've been critical darlings to an astounding degree, receiving near-perpetual, even exaggerated adoration from established critics all over the country (ex: "they could no more make a bad album than the Rolling Stones in 1967").
The title song on Dig Me Out was #44 on Rolling Stone's 2008 listing of the 100 Greatest Guitar Songs of All Time, and Spin named Dig Me Out #24 on its list of 100 Greatest Albums, 1985-2005.
