Violent Femmes are capable of doing anything!
As they released their first album, it was actually the first and only album in Billboard history to enter the charts as a platinum album, eight years after its release. The Violent Femmes became worldly known in festivals, clubs and theatres in over 30 countries within three decades.
MTV’s “Unplugged” show was inspired by the Violent Femmes, even though they never actually appeared on it. Their raw sound and honest lyrical perspective has been cited as an influence by artists as diverse as Pink, Keith Urban, The Smiths, Nirvana, Lou Reed, John Cusack, Mark Morris, and Wim Wenders.
