Many fans have queried if the title track of Blood In, Blood Out
refers to the firing of vocalist Rob Dukes during the recording of the album and his replacement by previous frontman Steve "Zetro" Souza
However, guitarist Gary Holt told Billboard
magazine the song has nothing to do with Dukes leaving the band. "A lot of people asked if [the song] had anything to do with Rob being replaced in the band, but as convenient as that sounds, the title, the lyrics, they were all there when Rob was recording it," said Holt with a laugh. "I hate to disappoint them on that one. It wasn't autobiographical."
