Miley Cyrus has done it again, the rock renaissance star has delivered a blistering cover of Bikini Kill anthem ‘Rebel Girl’ during the TikTok Tailgate Super Bowl Pregame Show.
The TikTok broadcast kicked off on Sunday afternoon for a performance that saw Miley Cyrus flex her rock chops in front of a section of the 7,500 vaccinated health care workers that were invited to attend the Super Bowl.
Miley’s performance was nothing short of glorious. Opening the set with a cover of Toni Basil’s camp as Christmas hit ‘Mickey’, clad in a cheerleader outfit. Cyrus then went on to cover a number of cuts from her latest album, Plastic Hearts, enlisting the help of album contributors Billy Idol (who performed album track ‘Night Crawling’ in addition to his perennial hit ‘White Wedding’) and Joan Jett (who tore through ‘Bad Karma,’ ‘Bad Reputation’ and ‘I Hate Myself For Loving You.’)

Cyrus also blessed us loyal devotees with a number of excellent covers: including previously-performed fan favourites like Dolly Parton’s ‘Jolene’ and ‘Heart of Glass.’ Leaning into the grittier side of things, she cut her teeth on Nine Inch Nails ‘Head Like A Hole,’ which she previously performed on an episode of Black Mirror. As well as a thunderous cover of Bikini Kill’s ‘Rebel Girl.’ Check it out below.
