The lyric "All this blood and glitter," is a reference to an exhibition held by rock 'n' roll photographer Mick Rock. Often referred to as "The Man Who Shot the Seventies", amongst Rock's best known work are various images of David Bowie as Ziggy Stardust which he shot in his capacity as the official Bowie photographer. He also created many memorable album covers including the ones for Lou Reed's Transformer, Queen's Queen II and Sheer Heart Attack and Joan Jett's I Love Rock 'n' Roll.
