Craig Owens of Chiodos recently recorded a cover of the Bikini Kill song “Rebel Girl” and has released the song in an effort to raise awareness and funds for two causes close to his heart Girls Rock Camp Alliance and the Equal Rights Advocates.   Fans can purchase the song now and make a donation to both causes HERE.

A video for the song has also premiered exclusively at – Watch NOW HERE. The video was created by Vincent Comparetto (Animator).

Craig Owens explains, “I have always had an unquenchable thirst for knowledge and often find myself in books or documentaries on the subject of things far from me physically but close to me mentally and emotionally. During my daily routine of trying to educate myself on things that I was curious about, I heard about a documentary called “Girl Rising.”   Women and girls still earn less for every dollar that men and have barriers to education.   I recorded “Rebel Girl” with Dave Trumfio in Los Angeles in early September.  It was written and originally released by Bikini Kill.  100% of net profits from sales will go directly to Equal Rights Advocates and Girls Rock Camp. Both these organizations continue to help pave the way towards equal rights for girls and women everywhere. Please share, like, purchase or donate directly to the organizations on Rebel Girl song page: – love Craig.”
