"If You Want Blood" as written by and Young Scott....
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

    Song MeaningThe song is probably AC/DC's strongest attempt at writing a true satanic song. They toyed with satanism for years and at 1:22 Bon clearly says "Lucifer" backwards while flashing those devil horns (in the video). It's to be interpreted as polar opposite to the Christianity.. You know what I mean.. I say white you say black sort of thing.

    My InterpretationTo me this song about the commitment the band have to putting on a great show and giving absolutely everything they've got to entertain their audience. Watch the band live and you will see what I mean.

    General CommentThis is the greatest song ever written by the group. The opening with drums and guitar is memorable. Mr. Bon Scott delivers an astounding tune to the song. Everytime I hear it I go crazy. Because IF YOU WANT BLOOD, YOU GOT ITTTTTTTTT.

    General CommentBIG HAIR BAND?! AC/DC was anything BUT that!!! Besides, this song was written in the 70's, not the 80's. Bon Scott died in '79 for Christ's sake! Think before you post! GDI

    General CommentAC/DC are nothing like the "big hair" metal bands of the 80s. The fact that the band members had long-ish hair has nothing to do with it. AC/DC is pure hard rock.
