"I'm So Bad (Baby I Don't Care)" as written by Michael Burston, Philip Campbell, Ian Kilmister and Philip John Taylor....
I make love to mountain lions,
Sleep on red-hot branding irons,
When I walk the roadway shakes,

Bed's a mess of rattlesnakes,
Voodoo child, black cat bone,
Scratch your back, hear you moan,
I get up, you go down, tall building, single bound,

War and peace and love, say it if you dare,
Iron fist, velvet glove,
I'm so bad, baby I don't care,

Black-hearted to the bone,
Older than The Rolling Stones,
Been to heaven, been to hell,
Bought the farm, and I won't sell,
Give and take, rise and fall, rise up and take it all,
Secret love, I won't tell, knock you up and ring your bell,

Kiss the whip, eat the gun
Tell me it ain't fair, midnight victim, hit and run,
I'm so bad, baby I don't care,

I make the blind to see
Shoot 'em full of are and be?
I make the lame to walk
Come round and pop your cork
Wham, bam, thank you ma'am
Thought I heard the back door slam
Overkill, walk the line, kill the lights, it's lampshade time

On the road, on the lam, people running scared
I'm everything they say I am
I'm so bad, baby I don't care

    General CommentSomething always felt "off" about this song from the first time I heard it in 1991. I don't recall anyone ever making comment on the first line of the song. "I make love to mountain lions" infers that he performs the sexual act gently and with passion rather than a more dominant manner. It could be argued that it would take a real badass to court a mountain lion and get it to agree to have sex with him, but the fact that he "makes love" to mountain lions, rather than "raping", "fucking", "forcing himself upon", or any other way to express dominance detracts from the overall sentiment.
