Cat Power has vowed to quit the US in a bizarre rant posted to her Instagram account.

The musician, whose real name is Chan Marshall, railed against the "powers that be" in the all-caps post.

She promised to leave the US until those powers took responsibility for "lies, protection of wealth and vicious slayings and inhumane private contracted militaries".

Marshall went on to demand a "tri-partisan" and a Native American vote.

The post ended with her urging followers to spread the "message of solidarity" and tagging celebrities including Kim Kardashian, Bono, Oprah and James Franco.

The full post reads:
