Holy fuck!

I'm listening to some late night blues show on WKCR, and half way through a mid tempo song, I realize I know it. Then it gets back to the hook. It's Violent Love. I'm always the first to chastise someone for not knowing if a song's a cover, but this song seemed so perfectly an Oingo Boingo song, that I never would have imagined it was written by Willie Dixon. In the interest of accuracy, it wasn't technically a blues, but it certainly wasn't originally a creepy ska song either.
