About Blood On The Dance Floor
Beneath the fright wigs, tattoos, makeup and colored contacts, Blood on the Dance Floor are just your average Orlando scene kids raised on the Internet -- call it adolescence 2.0. Like Brokencyde, the duo of Dahvie Vanity and Jayy Von Monroe mixes elements from screamo, trance, crunk and new wave. (Despite borrowing their name from a Michael Jackson album, the King of Pop is one of the few influences that doesn't turn up in their music.) Their shtick is a mixture of '80s hair metal and Twittering Kanye. Von Monroe and former member Garrett Ecstasy are openly gay, while Vanity's sexual identity remains ambiguous; their songs, like "Sexting" and "Well Suck Me," range from the obsessively oversexed to the openly misogynist. The double entendres of "Candyland," meanwhile, make Humbert Humbert look like a model citizen.
