Violent Femmes

Sealed - Brand new 180 gram audiophile vinyl. Made in USA.

Violent Femmes is the debut album by Violent Femmes. Mostly recorded in July 1982, the album was released by Slash Records on vinyl and on cassette in April 1983,[1][2] and on CD in 1987[3][4] with two extra tracks "Ugly" and "Gimme the Car".

In 2002, Rhino Records remastered the album, filled out the disc's length with demos, and added another disc of live tracks and a radio interview for a 20th anniversary special edition, with liner notes by Michael Azerrad.

Violent Femmes is the band's most successful album to date and achieved a rare feat by going gold, four years after its release, and later platinum, four years after that, without having yet made an appearance on the Billboard 200 album chart. After achieving platinum certification on February 1, 1991, the album finally entered the Billboard album chart for the first time on August 3, 1991.[5]

Slant Magazine listed the album at #21 on its list of "Best Albums of the 1980s".[6]
