The Six Best References To Cannibalism In Song
4. At The Drive-In - "Arcarsenal"
The only lyric on At The Drive-In's "Arcarsenal" that makes any sense on first listen happens to be about eating people. Cedric Bixler-Latava asks "Have you ever tasted skin?" and suggests "Sink your teeth into it." It's gross. Gross like eating people gross, not gross like how The Mars Volta's post-De-Loused In The Comatorium output was gross. And at the time At The Drive-In dropped Relationship Of Command, the album "Arcarsenal" opens, the band was so reckless on stage that nobody would be shocked if Bixler-Latava actually chomped down on some dude's arm during a show.
3. Hall & Oates - "Maneater"
Yeah, it's figurative, but what if it wasn't? (Oatesmeal?)
