Bad Shit

Bad Shit is a Porno For Pyros song that started out as a Jane’s Addiction jam that Perry Farrell wrote and performed with Steve Perkins during sound checks in late 1988 and early 1989. Dave Navarro played a couple of riffs of this song at the end of Pigs In Zen at the February 26, 1989 show at the City Gardens in Trenton, NJ.

Lyrics:

Got some bad shit
Then I walked the beach in Venice, oh!

I went outside
I been in too long
I went outside
For some inspiration
Did the G-O
Did the No-Go
There were stars
There were flies
Even the flies dropped like…
What does a fly drop like?
Stars

Oh, but I didn’t slow down

I went outside
I thought I was a Chinese blues player
Outside
I’ve been in too long
Did the G-O
And then I did the No-Go
There were stars
There were flies
Even the flies dropped like…
What do flies drop like?
Like stars

But I didn’t slow down
I didn’t slow down
I didn’t slow down
Never went down
I didn’t slow down

Stars!
Stars!
