Julia from Pacific GroveI’ve been a VF fan since the 80s. In fact, my sister and I are going to see them in San Francisco TONIGHT! I hate this song. It IS a rape song. Getting a girl high and doing whatever is rape.
Anonymous from UsaYou're genuinely retarded if you think this song is about rape. Its clearly about how he wants to meet up with a girl, cop some feels, bust a nut, etc.
Mike from Glen Ridge, NjI have heard that most of the best Violent Femmes songs were written by Gano while he was in prison..er..high school. Amazing to display such song writing genius as a teenager.
Brent from Indy-ish, InThis is why Gordon Gano is my hero
Dylan from Port Orange, FlBest song ever written.
Jeff from Atlanta, GaThis is what I've heard: he was gonna be inducted into the national honor society, and he asked them if he and brian could play a song at the induction ceremony. He started off playing a ballad, but lead into playing Gimme the car, which caused a riot. The very next day he was expelled from the National Honor Society.
Who writes a song about a name they found in a phone book? That's just one of the everyday things these guys find to sing about. Anything in their field of vision or general scope of knowledge is fair game. If you cross paths with them, so are you.
