Originally debuting at #1 on the Billboard Heatseekers chart, 'Bricks Are Heavy' was L7's breakthrough third album fueled by the success of the single 'Pretend We're Dead'. With an effortless blending of punk ethos, heavy grunge, melody, socio-political anthems and humor, L7 was often associated with the Seattle Grunge movement (even though they were from L.A.) with their abrasive, sledgehammer guitar riffs and plenty of heavy rockers with the songs 'Wargasm', 'Slide', and 'Everglade'. The group emphasized their feminist and Riot Grrrl side with 'This Ain't Pleasure' and 'Diet Pill'. Fan favorite “Shitlist” was famously featured in Natural Born Killers.
Named by Rolling Stone as among the “Essential Recordings of the 1990s” and one of SPIN’s “300 Best Albums of the Past 30 Years (1985-2014)”, it's a landmark album of '90s rock.
