Alright, here’s a good one. This is a song from an early draft of Frozen, which was about the concept of “the heir and the spare”… I think I just won the playlist.

I had to put some thought into this one, since I’m not as familiar with Nubia as I would like (yet!), but this is a good song that I like that I feel would fit her pretty well:

“Let’s Change the World”, by Ringo Starr

Sorry, but one song just really pops into my head for “ Nubia & The Amazons “ but it has to be altered.

Queen - Princes of the Universe

                 (change it to)
        
        Princesses of the Universe

The Punk Singer is a great, actually it’s fantastic, Documentary on Kathleen Hanna. Which is obviously about Bikini Kill. It’s based on why she disappeared from the music scene at the height of her career. She was married to Adam (aka Ad-Rock) Horovitz from the Beastie Boys. I won’t spoil in case u haven’t seen, or plan to see it? Crazy tho. She left for medical reasons, no choice. Then right after I watch the documentary, Ad-Rock passed away. Tons of great content tho. She grew up best friends with Kurt Cobain. So there’s some rare Kurt footage pre-Nirvana.

I think I might have seen part of this - I’ll have to find it and watch the whole thing. Maybe it was just clips used for promoting Hit Reset a few years back. I stumbled across it when I discovered the crazy pop cover of Deceptacon that Jessica Hernandez did.

Tangentially related: Kathleen Hanna was one of the first artists (along with Alice Bag) to help the Linda Lindas get bigger name gigs before they went viral and got signed by Epitaph. (Which is impressive considering I think she still lives in Brooklyn and did this during the pandemic.)
