Blood on the Dance Floor?

Posted by   + Show Post

I have a 12 yo dd who went shopping with some friends and bought a new hoodie with "Blood on the Dance Floor" on it. I didn't think much of it and was happy to see that she got to have some independence and make a purchase of something she likes. A couple of weeks later, I noticed in one of her school notebooks that she had written lyrics from this band. Whoa, yep, call me a prude, whatever, but it was nasty, vulgar and very violent. Wondering if anyone here has any comments.

Just for reference here, I'm posting the lyrics of one of their songs.  Yeah, I want 12 year olds listening to this! (sarcastic eye roll).  Wth?! 


"Sluts Get Guts"

I use chopsticks, Yes I do
I use chopsticks to eat you
Through your stomach and up your spine
Through your skull, Your brains are mine

Sluts get guts

I'm such a killer fuck, You're just a B-rated slut
I'm sharp like Jason's machete, I'll slice you into spaghetti
You're such a cold hearted bitch, They'll find you chopped up dead in a ditch
Bend you over your grave, Be my zombie sex slave

You give it up so easy and you know just how to please me
You sluts are all just the same, Parade around with no shame
I'll put the "C" in creepy so you start feeling queasy
You know you're under attack, I'll put a knife in your back

Run as fast as you can, Run as fast as you can
He's after you, He's after you

Sluts get guts, Fatal cuts, Makes me feel murderous
Made you cry, Then you died, Makes me feel so alive
You got served, You deserve your teeth broke on the curb
All the sluts drive me nuts, That's why all they get is guts

Sluts get guts; Kill 'em til they rot
Sluts get guts; Kill 'em til they rot

2, 4, 6, 8, Hex-Cut, Decapitate
Disembowel, Disembowel, Lock the doors and stay up late
All the kids love me, They think I'm fuzzy
But I'm a fucking monster that's Gonna chop their heads off

Stuffing bodies in the trunk, All the whores who wouldn't fuck
Bitches, Sluts, Stupid cunts, A bomb is ticking their time is up
Locked in the closet or hiding under your bed
I'm the worst kind of monster cause I'm all in your head

Run as fast as you can, Run as fast as you can
He's after you, He's after you

Sluts get guts, Fatal cuts, Makes me feel murderous
Made you cry, Then you died, Makes me feel so alive
You got served, You deserve your teeth broke on the curb
All the sluts drive me nuts, That's why all they get is guts

Im like the exorcist, My charms you can't resist
We'll slash your body and your soul and leave you rotting in the cold
My love you can't erase, Your own self disgrace
From the woods, Suffering thrills, Those guys are looking for a kill

I saw them once in a movie, Some dude just gut a groupe
"Oh my god, Run Kim!"; See me walk and fall again.
I'm the killer with a knife, I will cut it into your life
Tis the season to be killing and your blood I will be spilling

Run as fast as you can, Run as fast as you can
He's after you, He's after you

Run as fast as you can, Run as fast as you can
He's after you, He's after you

Sluts get guts, Fatal cuts, Makes me feel murderous (Run as fast as you can)
Made you cry, Then you died, Makes me feel so alive (Run as fast as you can)
You got served, You deserve your teeth broke on the curb (He's after you)
All the sluts drive me nuts, That's why all they get is guts (He's after you)

Sluts get guts, Fatal cuts, Makes me feel murderous (Run as fast as you can)
Made you cry, Then you died, Makes me feel so alive (Run as fast as you can)
You got served, You deserve your teeth broke on the curb (He's after you)
All the sluts drive me nuts, That's why all they get is guts (He's after you)

It's not a version.  It's the name of the band.

Quoting Diamondblue1:

When i heard blood on the dance floor i was actually thinking about Micheal Jackson because he had a song called that in the 80's i didn't know they had another version by someone else who sings that?

1 mom liked this

After reading the lyrics I would definitely sit her down and talk to her about the lyrics.  I don't usually restrict what my kids listen too, but a 12 yo listen to music like this I would definitely be setting some limits.  How is she listening to this type of music without you knowing?  I'm always asking my kids about the music they are listening too, and they are older teens.

well, they are going to do and say lots of thing we as mom's don't like or wanta hear our kids say.. but i suppose a certain amount of lead way can be compromised.. if its really bad i would just say no dear you cant have that on something that so many may see because and then give  her the reasons why it may cause an issues.. but on the good side they are just trying to fit in and find their own little way.. expressing their individuality a lot of times which is fine as long as its not derogatory to anyone..

We have a family iTunes accounts and when my DD picked some music by Ke$ha I talked to my DH about it.  

Years before when DS got into violent metal, I was concerned and DH said 'we don't believe in censorship"... which is true so we let DS select his music.   We talked to him about how music makes you FEEL a certain way how his selection in music could cause an adrenaline addition and make him feel angry... .. Also why he should be respectful to not play that type of music anywhere that other people are forced to listen to it.

So when DD got into music with sexual lyrics DH and I discussed it again and agreed that we do not believe in censorship.   I did talk to DD separately and ask if she understood the lyrics, some she did not.   I explained why as a woman I do not like music with lyrics that detail violence against women.   After our talk she said she didn't like the song that much anyway and asked to delete them from her iTunes herself.

This is the 1st I've heard of it.  I would definitely let her know why you don't want her listening to it.

Thanks for all the feedback! It is beyond shocking that she would want to listen to this! I am not sure how she even heard about it, unless it was from someone else. VERY unfortunately, these songs are available to be seen on youtube all the time. There is no way to effectively censor the music that goes on you tube that I have found. My dd is at a very tender age, as one pp said, she is definitely trying to find her way and her identity, etc. I don't really know how much of it she even understands. Unfortunately though, she is not too willing to talk to me about anything of any substance right now, I mean she really shuts down. I am going to try to take her to a counselor later this week because of some concerns (not related to the songs) to see if she can get a dialogue with someone.
