I have finally decided to get rid of the sexist songs from my Spotify playlists. I’m a self-respecting woman, so why did it take me so long? No good reason, only that sexist songs are ubiquitous and most people don’t seem to care. But these are not acceptable excuses to finance music that perpetuates stereotypes and oppression. So the following songs all got the boot:

  1. The All-American Rejects — Dirty Little Secret
  2. The Beatles — A Hard Day’s Night
  3. The Beatles — I Feel Fine
  4. The Beatles — Norwegian Wood
  5. The Beatles — Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da
  6. The Beatles — Piggies
  7. The Beatles — Twist and Shout
  8. The Black-Eyed Peas — Ba Bump
  9. The Black-Eyed Peas — Gone Going
  10. The Black-Eyed Peas — My Humps
  11. The Black-Eyed Peas — Union
  12. Bob Dylan — The Times They Are A-Changin’
  13. Bob Dylan — Blowin’ in the Wind
  14. Bowling for Soup — 1985
  15. Cobra Starship — The City Is at War
  16. Diddy — Coming Home
  17. Dominic Fike — 3 Nights
  18. Drake — Hotline Bling
  19. Earl Sweatshirt — Whoa
  20. Ed Sheeran — Perfect
  21. Eminem — The Real Slim Shady
  22. Fall Out Boy — 20 Dollar Nose Bleed
  23. Frank Ocean — Solo
  24. From First to Last — Ride the Wings of Pestilence
  25. Green Day — Wake Me Up When September Ends
  26. The Human League — Don’t You Want Me
  27. Jay-Z — 99 Problems
  28. Kanye West — Blame Game
  29. Kanye West — FML
  30. Kanye West — Gold Digger
  31. Kanye West — New Slaves
  32. Kanye West — Runaway
  33. Kanye West — So Appalled
  34. Kendrick Lamar — Alright
  35. Kendrick Lamar — Bitch, Don’t Kill My Vibe
  36. Kids See Ghosts — Feel the Love
  37. The Kinks — Strangers
  38. Lil Jon — Get Low
  39. LMFAO — Shots
  40. Ludacris — S.O.T.L. (Silence of the Lambs)
  41. Metro Station — Shake It

  45. Robin Thicke — Blurred Lines
  46. Usher — Yeah!
  47. Vanilla Ice — Play That Funky Music
  48. The Village People — Y.M.C.A.

  53. The 1975 — Somebody Else

I highly encourage you all to take inventory and rid yourselves of any sexist music you might have. We are already exposed to way too many sexist influences to also curate them.
