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 — Labor Day
  11. The Black-Eyed Peas — My Humps
  12. The Black-Eyed Peas — Smells Like Funk
  13. The Black-Eyed Peas — Union
  14. Bob Dylan — The Times They Are A-Changin’
  15. Bob Dylan — Blowin’ in the Wind
  16. Bowling for Soup — 1985
  17. Cobra Starship — The City Is at War
