Girls Smash Guitars recently released the music video for their mash up of “Good 4 U” (Olivia Rodrigo) and “Misery Business” (Paramore). The video and project idea was inspired by American singer-songwriter, guitarist and producer Phoebe Bridgers. Bridgers had performed “Kyoto” and “I Know the End” from her Grammy-nominated album Punisher during her guest appearance on SNL back in February 2021. She ended her set by smashing her guitar against the floor amp. This sparked a Twitter banter between Bridgers and David Crosby, which in turn inspired the creation of Girls Smash Guitars. The video was introduced on Good Day Sacramento last week.

Lead singer Halee Smith is the founder of Girls Smash Guitars, and owner of Rockit Music Gear (RMG). The entire band line up includes Vee on vocals (Misery Business lyrics), Lily Wohlstadter, Zoe Leach, Edie Leach all on guitar, Emma Musso on bass, and Ben I on drums.  The Girls Smash Guitars music project comprise of bands and musicians hailing from Modesto, California. For the younger women, this was their first experience with recording a song, performing in a music video and smashing a guitar!
