AC/DC - If You Want Blood (You Got It) (Official Video)

Updated: Dec 12, 2019





"If You Want Blood (You've Got It)" is a song by AC/DC from Highway to Hell, the sixth studio album by Australian hard rock band AC/DC, released on 27 July 1979. It was the last album featuring lead singer Bon Scott, who died early the following year on 19 February 1980.


Angus Bon and Malcolm got the idea for this song when they were at a concert and the concert wasn't very good and the singer got up to the stage and said " What do you want fuckin blood " and they thought that was a good title for the song but they changed it a lil bit !


Highway to Hell was produced by Robert John "Mutt" Lange. Malcolm Young stated that Lange "liked the simplicity of a band. We were all minimalist. We felt it was the best way to be ... He knew we were all dedicated so he sort of got it. But he made sure the tracks were solid, and he could hear if a snare just went off." In the same article Angus Young added, "He was meticulous about sound, getting right guitars and drums. He would zero in—and he was good too on the vocal side. Even Bon was impressed with how he could get his voice to sound." Tour manager, Ian Jeffery, who was present during recordings recalled:


“Mutt took them through so many changes. I remember one day Bon coming in with his lyrics to If You Want Blood. He starts doing it and he’s struggling, you know? There’s more fucking breath than voice coming out. Mutt says to him, ‘Listen, you’ve got to co-ordinate your breathing’. Bon was like, ‘You’re so fucking good, cunt, you do it!’. Mutt sat in his seat and did it without standing up! That was when they all went, ‘What the fucking hell we dealing with here?”








Lyrics


It's criminal

There ought to be a law

Criminal

There ought to be a whole lot more

You get nothin' for nothin'

Tell me who can you trust

We got what you want

And you got the lust

If you want blood, you got it

If you want blood, you got it

Blood on the streets

Blood on the rocks

Blood in the gutter

Every last drop

You want blood

You got it

Yes you have


It's animal

Livin' in the human zoo

Animal

The shit that they toss to you

Feelin' like a christian

Locked in a cage

Thrown to the lions

On the second page

If you want blood, you got it

If you want blood, you got it

Blood on the street

Blood on the rocks

Blood in the gutter

Every last drop

You want blood

You got it

O positive


Blood on the rocks

Blood on the streets

Blood in the sky

Blood on the sheets

If you want blood

You got it


I want you to bleed for me


If you want blood, you got it

If you want blood, you got it

If you want blood, you got it

If you want blood, you got it

If you want blood, you got it

If you want blood, you got it

If you want blood, you got it

If you want blood, you got it

If you want blood, you got it

If you want blood, you got it

If you want blood, you got it

If you want blood, you got it

If you want blood, you got it

If you want blood, you got it

If you want blood, you got it
