"Dirty Black Summer" as written by and Glenn Danzig....
no summer in the winter time
will keep you warm like a funeral pyre
and nothing like an august night
in your loving

I got a dirty
black summer
and nothing in the coolest light
can stop the walking out across
the line
no holding back the summer night
I got a feeling

it's just a dirty
black summer

    General Commentuhh ... lots of dark, Satanic lovin' for Mister Danzig, I guess? He's got the absolute sexiest voice in all of heavy metal.

    (and I'm surprised "uh!" isn't part of the lyrics in the chorus)

    General Commentdirty black... like the ashes from a funeral pyre? summer in the winter time.. that would be like "indian summer" or fall... I think. So fall... ashes from leaves, ashes from a body (funeal pyre) and sex... hehe :P

    General CommentThis song is about hell. Hell is dirty...black...and summer refers to the heat of hell. Danzig is talking about crossing into evil, and knowing full well that it will send him to hell.

    General CommentOMG, I heard the same thing! I know this guy got a -1, but sometimes the truth hurts. My understanding was it was the trainer at his bodybuilding gym. After his work out, he ask the guy out for a protein drink; they discussed his roid rage and it just went from there.

    General CommentWell...I am totally not a Danzig fan. But my brother is the BIGGEST FAN EVER! In fact, he got the opportunity to design the concert posters for the Kansas City show on halloween this year. So, everytime I hear a Danzig song, makes me miss my brother - lol. I'm not sure the name, but the one song "I got somethin to say, I killed your baby today" is one of his faves. We always go around singing it. LOL
