Girl In A Coma, 'Knocking On Your Door,' Live on Soundcheck

Girl In A Coma in the Soundcheck studio (Amy Pearl/WNYC)

Girl In A Coma is a punky, rocky all-girl band from San Antonio that dedicated its first song to two Chihuahuas back in Texas.

But the girls didn't start the band to entertain their pets, they did it to be popular.

"We were geeks, we wanted to be popular," laughed lead vocalist Nina Dias.

Nina was 12 or 13 when she showed her older sister Phanie (drums) and Jenn Alva (bass, vocals) a song.

Phanie says: "She showed us a song at my house on the porch and we were like, 'Woah! OK!"

Watch the video below to see Girl In A Coma perform "Knocking On Your Door" live in WNYC's Soundcheck studios.

High five to the SA Texas gals... (I left long ago but TX is always apart of me).

Nice and tight tension musically and a heck of a mature voice despite Nina's young appearance.... (wonder how she takes care of her pipes? Fresh ginger in tea gargle then singing along with Soul and Opera classics?) Good power and range. Best of luck to all you ladies, keep it up! Never mind the poseurs. Nerds rule.
