Laying the groundwork of dynamicism for the 90s grunge movement, Violent Femmes is one of those who truly cemented their mark in the music industry through their signature sounds. They may not be as astronomically big as their contemporaries, but they have remained relevant over the years.
Violent Femmes released only 10 albums from 1983 to 2019. Their 1993 album "Why Do Birds Sing?" is one of the most celebrated albums. It featured the single "American Music," which rose to number 2 on Billboard's Modern Rock chart during the week of May 18, 1991, and became a staple of the band's live shows.
It was recently made available as a special 30th Anniversary deluxe edition featuring remastered audio, alternate takes, outtakes, and a rousing concert recording from The Boat House in Norfolk, Virginia.
Moreover, their hits "American Music," "Add It Up," "Gone Daddy Gone," "Good Feeling," "Kiss Off," and "Color Me Once," among many others, earned them loyalty from dedicated fans. But perhaps no song from them is as big as "Blister in the Sun." The instantly recognizable intro of this timeless song, its melody, and its playful meaning make it a hit. Now it still remains as an alternative rock radio staple over the years.
If you want to hear these songs and several others, watch the band live this Saturday, June 4, 2022. Secure your tickets now and let the legendary trio take you on a ride down memory lane.
