Violent Femmes–Blister in the Sun

I had a friend with a broken car stereo that used to ferry us around sometimes.  The main rule was that we had to provide our own music in the form of singing.  The actual rule was that the only song we were allowed to sing was Blister in the Sun by Violent Femmes.   Maybe it was a coincidence or maybe is was a stroke of genius on his part, but something about the song’s DNA is a perfect fit for shouting at the top of your lungs, crammed into a sweaty, too-small car at the height of summer.
