Rocktober 31, 2014 White Zombie

 Wrapping up the month of Rocktober with a Zombie... White Zombie 

The title, as well as lyrical references, are taken from the film Blade Runner, which was the slogan of the Tyrell Corporation, manufacturers of the replicants in the film. The moaning in the intro to the song was sampled from a post-apocalyptic porn movie called Café Flesh directed by Stephen Sayadian.

"More Human than Human" quickly became the band's highest-charting and most recognizable single in the entirety of their career. The song earned them their second Grammy nomination for Best Metal Performance in 1995. The song was named the 68th best hard rock song of all time by VH1.
