Sleater-Kinney have been staples in the indie rock scene for the past two and half decades, and recently released their self-produced 10th album, Path of Wellness. While it would be easy to just geek out over the band's musical accomplishments, I wanted to dive deeper into their inspirations by inviting Corin Tucker and Carrie Brownstein to guest DJ on "8 Track."

For their eight songs, Corin picked a “heroes” theme, and it made for some great storytelling and conversation around an impressive list of artists that have helped shape them professionally and personally.

  • The Go-Betweens - "Love Goes On" (Carrie)
  • Lauryn Hill - "Everything Is Everything" (Corin)
  • Patti Smith Group - "Ask the Angels" (Carrie)
  • Missy Elliott - "The Rain (Supa Dupa Fly)" (Corin)
  • The Jam - "That’s Entertainment" (Carrie)
  • Ike & Tina Turner - "River Deep, Mountain High" (Corin)
  • Betty Davis - "Anti Love Song" (Carrie)
  • Chaka Khan - "I Feel For You" (Corin)
