Hallowed Ground (Exclusive)

Hallowed Ground by Violent Femmes
Released: Jan 1984
Label: London Records
When the Violent Femmes debut became a left field hit, Gordon Gano momentarily committed career suicide with this twisted ode to God (Gano's view of the Lord is closer to Johnny Cash or Nick Cave's dark visions than to the CCM crowd's sunny vibes). Possibly too eccentric and freethinking for born agains, Hallowed Ground is bookended by two awesome tracks: "Country Death Song" and the infectious gospel rocker "It's Gonna Rain."
