need help with song identification

I need help determining the artist or song title for a couple of songs on a tape I found. Since the recording quality is so poor, this is the best I could do with the lyrics.

1. Why do they speak when there's nothing to say
They'll just go on and on and on...

Easy to find, he said, easy to find me
Open the door and (I'll) be just fine

2. I'm not your loverboy toy
I know what you are

You can find your own rock 'n' roll girl like me...

3. We're catastrophic inside
You speak the word like a sitcom sitcom sitcom

The first selection I think is one of the early singles by the Stockholm Monsters. Don't have the CD w/ me, maybe Fairy Tales of Happy Ever After.

More info - songs 2 and 3 are no-wave-ish with girlie vocals. Song 2 opens with a sax and maybe a trumpet? I don't know if it's 80's era or newer, as the only songs I know on the tape are by Echo and the Bunnymen, Theh Rapture covering The Psychedelic Furs, and Out Hud.

four years pass...

I hate starting threads like this as they just mess up the board but I have no one else to turn to.

I visited LA recently and my dad and my friend both brought up some Oingo Boingo song I've never heard where they apparently repeat the name of some intersection over and over. I was at the intersection in question but I've forgotten it and have no way of remembering it.

Anybody have a clue?

Hollywood and Vine?

That's not it. I think the streets might actually be in Santa Monica or Venice and might have actually even been in the Oingo Boingo movie I think? Unless it's a different band, but I'm pretty sure it's them.

"Pico and Sepulveda" - from the movie Forbidden Zone.

Not by Oingo Boingo btw, but I'm sure that's the one you're thinking of.

Thank you so much. Who does it?

this song is quite repetitive.

ten years pass...

Connor O'Malley did an interpretive dance to this a couple weeks ago on Late Night with Seth Meyers.

It was the episode with Bryan Cranston.

It's got a repetitive groove thing going on with some lyrics I think like

"He got himself a gun...
"He got a booger in his eye...

I know I heard this before but can not find it using the internet.
Can anybody help?

Feel pretty dumb, but I never watched the Sopranos. It was their theme song. Alabama 3 doing "Woke Up This Morning"

It's a catchy little number.
