In Pitchfork’s serious-minded look at the Russian band Pussy Riot (whose supporters in their legal battle against the amassed forces of Vladimir Putin will be protesting tonight), riot grrrl icon Kathleen Hanna admits to an idiosyncratic view of 1990s TV. When describing the process by which Russian authorities took legal recourse against Pussy Riot’s lyrics, Ms. Hanna noted: “I mean, I feel totally damaged by the TV show Frasier, but I can’t call up the police and get Kelsey Grammer arrested.”
Look, “tossed salad and scrambled eggs” has never exactly been our favorite lyric, and Niles’s relationship with Daphne is extremely unprofessional, but Caroline in the City was a way more upsetting NBC standard. Then again, Kelsey Grammer’s recent declaration that his Republicanism denied him a shot for a sixth Emmy for his new show, Boss, was incredibly irritating, if not damaging.
