Why Do Birds Sing is the fifth studio album by Violent Femmes, released on April 30, 1991. It was their last album with original drummer Victor DeLorenzo, who left two years later to devote his time to acting, and was produced by Michael Beinhorn, best-known then for his work with the Red Hot Chili Peppers on Mother's Milk and The Uplift Mofo Party Plan. It featured the single American Music, which rose to number 2 on Billboard's Modern Rock chart during the week of May 18, 1991. Album 1991 13 Songs. Why Do Birds Sing Violent Femmes.

Two years after the release of their stripped-down and mellowed-out album 3, the Violent Femmes return with a disjointed and choppy but enjoyable album, Why Do Birds Sing. This record is probably most famous for its cover of Culture Club's Do You Really Want to Hurt Me. The acoustic sound they pioneered way back before MTV Unplugged was even thought of is still the most part.
