Countdown to Halloween, Day 9: Nothin’ For a Man To Do But Sit Around and Think

Back to the Halloween mixtape tonight, moving from the gothic rock of Bauhaus to the gothic country of… The Violent Femmes?

So, yeah. That was “Country Death Song,” from the Femmes’ second album, Hallowed Ground. I don’t have much in the way of interesting back story on it or anything. It’s just always really amused me that my favorite gothic country song is by a band who’s known for, really, anything but country music. And sometimes, that’s enough.
