Violent Femmes

Wednesday, May 11th

Violent Femmes have released ten studio albums and 15 singles during the course of their career. The band found critical acclaim with the release of their self-titled debut album in early 1983. Featuring many of their best-known songs, including “Blister in the Sun”, “Kiss Off”, “Add It Up” and “Gone Daddy Gone”, Violent Femmes became the band’s biggest-selling album and was eventually certified platinum by the RIAA.  Violent Femmes went on to become one of the most successful rock bands of the 1980s, selling more than 9 million albums by 2005.  After the release of their third album The Blind Leading the Naked (1986), the band’s future was uncertain and they split up in 1987, when Gano and Ritchie went solo. However, they regrouped a year later, releasing their fourth album (1989). The follow-up album, Why Do Birds Sing? (1991), contains the fan favorite and concert staple “American Music”.  via band wiki
