Yeah Yeah Yeah’s Karen O has penned a song on Google doodle to celebrate investigate journalist Nellie Bly’s 151st birthday.
It’s under 2 and a half minutes but is purely Karen O. It calls reference to her work advocating for unions, and those going hungry, and her work with suffragists.
“Someone’s gotta stand up and tell em what a girl is good for
Oh Nellie, take us all around the world/and break those rules/cause you’re our girl
We wanna make something of ourselves too
Oh Nellie you show us just what you would do”
My favorite line?
“We gotta speak up for the ones who’ve been told to shut up”
