Blood, Sex and Booze

Songfacts®:

  • This song explores the subject of sadomasochism. The band hired some dominatrixs to beat up one of the crew in order to add some authentic "sound effects" to the song. Drummer Tre Cool told Q magazine November 2012: "We had this engineer, Tone who was 19. I called these dominatrix ladies in to beat the s--t out of him on tape so we could get the sound of it. It was quite entertaining; he thought he was badass so they gave it to him a little heavy."
