Notable

In 1981, Violent Femmes played their first big gig, when The Pretenders invited them to open their Milwaukee show after spotting them busking on the sidewalk outside the theater.

Though widely acclaimed by critics upon its 1983 release, the band’s self-titled debut album didn’t go Gold until 1987, and it took until 1991 to pass the million-selling mark.

They had two Top 10 hits on Billboard’s Modern Rock charts: 1989’s “Nightmares” and 1991’s “American Music.”

“Blister in the Sun” was featured prominently in the 1997 film Grosse Pointe Blank.

Gnarls Barkley covered “Gone Daddy Gone” on the smash 2006 album St. Elsewhere.

We Can Do Anything, the band’s 2016 reunion album, reached No. 9 on Billboard’s Independent Albums chart.
