Alternative rock band from the American Pacific Northwest. Formed in Olympia, Washington (USA) in 1994, then moved to Portland, Oregon. Went on "indefinite hiatus" in 2006. Reformed in 2014.

Sleater-Kinney (the name is taken from a local freeway off-ramp) were in the middle of the Riot Grrrl scene in the 1990s, and they were one of the few to survive the inevitable backlash (along with Allison Wolfe and Kathleen Hanna). Originally, the band was Corin Tucker and Carrie Brownstein's side-project. The Australian-born Laura Macfarlane became the band's first permanent drummer in late 1994. In 1997, Janet Weiss became their new drummer.

After a few albums recorded with John Goodmanson, they went into an unfamiliar studio with Dave Fridmann in late 2004, to record their first album for Sub Pop. In the summer of 2006, they announced an "indefinite hiatus", and they played their final U.S. gigs in August. They were in other bands before, during, and after Sleater-Kinney's 11 year run: Corin has been in both Heavens To Betsy (2) and Cadallaca, Carrie in Excuse 17 and The Spells, Laura in Ninetynine, and Janet in Quasi (2).

In 2019 Weiss announced her departure from the band, which is now in its core a duo:
