The Violent Femmes are an alternative rock band, formed in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, United States in 1980. The band originally consisted of Gordon Gano (vocals, guitar), Brian Ritchie (bass), and Victor DeLorenzo (drums), with Guy Hoffman replacing DeLorenzo following his departure starting in 1993 and up until his return in 2002. The band split in early 2009, their last recording being a cover of the Gnarls Barkley song "Crazy", a response to Gnarls Barkley's cover of the Femmes song "Gone Daddy Gone" released the previous year. In January 2013, it was announced that the Violent Femmes would be reuniting and performing at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in April. They performed there, the Bottlerock Napa Valley in May and Milwaukee's Summerfest in June. The band is also on the bill for Riot Fest, which will take place in Chicago in September.

    When I'm out walkin' I strut my stuff, man, I'm so strung out
    I'm high as a kite, I just might stop to check you out
    Let me go on like I blister in the sun
    Let me go on, big hands, I know you're the one
    Body and beats, I stain my sheets, I don't even know why

    I need someone, a person to talk to, someone who'd care to love -- could it be you? Could it be you?
    The situation gets rough, and I start to panic; it's not enough, it's just a habit and, kid, you're sick...
    Well, darling, this is it...
    Well, you can all just kiss off into to the air,
    Behind my back, I can see them stare.

    Tell ya', man, I'm stuck on this lovely girl.
    Of course to me, she mean all the world.
    But then she like another guy...

    So please, please, please do not go.
