Violent Femmes band name meaning

Not wild ladies, but instead firmly rocking gentlemen formed the strength of the folk punk band Violent Femmes from Milwaukee, Wisconsin. 

Explanation of band name Violent Femmes - The fudge inside the jawbreakerOut of respect for the multilingual capabilities of our readers, we will refrain from translating Violent Femmes, and limit ourselves to the observation that the name has an ironic meaning. A femme in Anglo-Saxon countries is the female component of a lesbian couple, let's say the fudge that is the soft inside of the rock hard jawbreaker. 

The imagination the band displays by uniting the concepts of femme and 'violence' is admirable.
