Doughnuts have proven that the girls can rock just as much as the guys. Their style of abrasive hardcore with melodic elements established them as one of the underground’s most interesting bands. Although the music of the Doughnuts was labeled “hardcore,” with Feel Me Bleed, they added a more melodic approach that broke them out to a larger audience. These five Swedish girls had a progressive sound and message that was a milestone for women in music. They embraced any obvious gender agenda, and instead, they let the intensity of their music and message speak for itself.
