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.
