I Heart Amy Carter
It may or may come as a surprise to find out that both terms Kinderwhore and Riot Grrrl originated with Kurt Cobain.
Kurt came up with the band name Amy Carter and the idea for a fanzine (magazine) “I [Heart] Amy Carter”. The band members consisted of Tammy Rae, Kathleen Hanna, and Heidi Aborgast.
Kurt and I had been discussing the former U.S. President Jimmy Carter who’s home state is Georgia, same as my adopted mother’s. I told him Amy Lynn Carter and I shared not only a first name and middle initial, but we also both have red hair. (origin for stagename Amy Lynn)
In 1991 Nirvana released the song On A Plain written in reference to President Jimmy Carter’s home town of Plains, Georgia.
