Sizzy Rocket Reworks a Beastie Boys Song into a Feminist Anthem

Sizzy Rocket's feminist remake of the Beastie Boys' song 'Girls' was borne out of a lyrical blunder. While crooning the popular tune in the shower, Rocket noticed that she repeatedly sang "All they really want is girls," as opposed to the original lyric, "All we really want is girls." Inspired, she set out to create a strong, empowering version of the formerly misogynist song.

Rocket hopes that girls will take away a positive message from the song, explaining, "There is a fine line between saying 'I want to be empowering' and 'I want to be sexy,' but I think it's important to realize that you can be both in any way that you choose."

Rocket collaborated with Matt Squire, a talented producer who's worked with Panic! at the Disco, to create the insanely catchy track.
