Bloodrock - DOA
Bloodrock - DOA
Rumors of my demise by perforation have been greatly exaggerated.
I love this song !!
.. and why do you always pick the crappiest video of every song you post ?
Here is the better vid. Jim Rutledge, lead singer of Bloodrock, released a new video of DOA/EVERY BODY'S NIGHTMARE in 1986, and features Lee Pickens on lead guitar with another amazing performance.
The original version was on the Bloodrock 2 album and was RIAA Certified Gold in 1971.
More from Wikipedia ...
The version of "D.O.A." featured on the single is roughly half the length of the album version found on Bloodrock 2. The song gives a grisly first person account of the aftermath of a plane or car crash (debated to this day which one the song is about). The vocalist describes the bloody sheets he lies in with a missing arm and a dead girl lying next to him, as the ambulance attendant looks over him with little hope. This narrative is backed by a rather eerie and grave organ riff & background sounds of ambulance sirens, creating a decidedly bleak and unsettling atmosphere. The song ends with the ambulance siren being shut off, indicating that the patient has died and is Dead On Arrival.
According to lead guitarist, Lee Pickens, "D.O.A." is based on the ill fated Wichita State University football team airplane crash of October 2, 1970.
In March, 1971, many US radio stations and high schools banned "D.O.A.". Despite a lack of air-play, the single still reached #36 on the Billboard chart.
I never knew who that was, thanks guys!
Your kidding right they suck
In 1971 this song hit society like Marilyn Manson does today.
