(Top 101) #80: Kiss Off – The Violent Femmes


“The Blister In the Sun” and “Add It Up” get all the press, and they are definitely great songs. However, my favorite Violent Femmes song is undoubtedly “Kiss Off.” It has one of the most awesome bridges in the history of rock music: “I take one, one, one cause you left me; two, two, two for my family…” The song is just all about angst, angst, angst, sung by a rebel without a cause howling at the world. It’s the “Smells Like Teen Spirit” of its time. And oh, how should I say this? It. Kicks. Ass.
