Violent Femmes is one of the most successful alternative rock bands of the 1980s. They developed their sound in the midwest, with a likable charm that stands out against the gloom of other alternative rock bands founded on the coasts. Gordon Gano’s distinct voice sticks out in hit songs like,“Blister in the Sun,” which act a perfect blend of DIY punk and‘80s upbeat dance music. Their 1983 self-titled album still proves to be the most recognizable songs in their catalogue.“Kiss Off,”“Add it Up,” and“Gone Daddy Gone” rounded out their catalogue and provided a respectable reputation for upbeat fun alternative rock songs.
