"Blister In the Sun," Violent Femmes

Gordon Gano and Brian Ritchie of Violent Femmes
Clayton Call/Redferns

Pro tip: Always wear sunscreen, especially when you're pasty pent-up dudes like the Violent Femmes. Over a torqued up acoustic surf-punk, Gordon Gano gave us one of rock's great odes to pencil-necked, acne-scarred horniness. This unlikely hit exploded like an over-ripe zit all over John Hughes America in the mid-Eighties.
