Sleater-Kinney is an acclaimed, American rock band that formed in
Olympia, Washington in 1994. The band's core lineup consists of Corin
Tucker (vocals and guitar), Carrie Brownstein (guitar and vocals), and
Janet Weiss (drums). Sleater-Kinney were known for their feminist,
left-leaning politics, and were an integral part of the riot grrrl and indie
rock scenes in the Pacific Northwest.


Dig Me Out is the third studio album by Sleater-Kinney, originally
released on April 8, 1997 by Kill Rock Stars. The album was produced
by John Goodmanson and recorded from December 1996 to January
1997 at John and Stu's Place in Seattle, Washington. Dig Me Out marked
the debut of Janet Weiss, who became the band's longest-serving and
last drummer.


Dig Me Out made several publications' best album lists. The album
appeared at number four in The Village Voice's ''Pazz & Jop'' critics' poll
for 1997. In 2001, Spin placed it at number 19 on its list of ''50 Most
Essential Punk Records''. In 2003, the album was ranked number 272
on Rolling Stone's list of ''The 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.'' In
2005, the album was ranked number 24 in Spin's ''100 Greatest Albums,
1985-2005''. In 2012, Spin also ranked it at number 74 on their ''125
Best Albums of the Past 25 Years''. In 2008, the song ''Dig Me Out'' was
ranked number 44 in Rolling Stone's ''100 Greatest Guitar Songs of All
Time''.


''Now [delivers] the punch their words describe...If [Sleater-Kinney]
wanna be our Simone de Beauvoir, Dig Me Out proves they're up to it.'
