"Bad Blood" was a popular song written by Neil Sedaka and Phil Cody. The song, with uncredited backing vocals by Elton John, reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1975, remaining in the top position for three weeks. It was certified gold by the RIAA and was the most successful individual commercial release in Sedaka's career. "Bad Blood" was replaced at the #1 spot by John's single, "Island Girl".
This song is featured in the season 1 episode 18 "The Career Day" of sitcom That 70's Show, when Eric and his mother sing it while driving in the car.
In 2013, a caller to the Jim Rome Show attempted a parody of this song, only to get run (hung up on) and invited to a contest for the show's worst callers.
