Being a teenager can really suck. There’s going to be times when you don’t feel comfortable with getting advice from anyone, but sticking it out alone isn’t the best idea. A few people were lucky enough to have Sleater-Kinney’s Carrie Brownstein and Corin Tucker help them out when that situation arose.

In this video from Rookie, the pair answers questions teens have about breakups, first kisses, and unrequited love towards your best friend. As if Carrie and Corin couldn’t be any cooler, they give really great, solid advice. The Q and A is part of a series on Rookie called “Ask A Grown (Man/Woman)”. Karen O, Jimmy Fallon, and Vampire Weekend are just some of the others that have participated. You can view the entire list of advice-givers here.


Watch below for Carrie and Corin’s video:
