Songs about Blood and Bleeding

Not only is blood thicker than water, it also makes for better song material. It's also a handy topic if you're singing about vampires, and yes, we have a category for songs about vampires too. Songwriters usually use blood in a metaphoric sense, to invoke everything from the horrors of war and slaughter to the ties of family and kinship. And sometimes it's just about a pint of O Negative, straight up.

Whether it's blood on the saddle, blood on the devil's altar, blood from an emo's slashed arms, or just plain old yucky red stuff, it's a visceral image that grabs your attention every time. Now somebody grab a mop.
