Bloodrock 2 is the second album by the Texas hard rock band Bloodrock, released on Capitol Records in 1970 and produced by Terry Knight. Early the following year, the gory extended track "D.O.A." became the biggest hit of Bloodrock's career when issued in shorter form as a single. The album was certified Gold by the RIAA January 3, 1990. Art direction: George Osaka. (The motivation for writing this song was explained in 2005 by guitarist Lee Pickens. “When I was 17, I wanted to be an airline pilot,” Pickens said. “I had just gotten out of this airplane with a friend of mine, at this little airport, and I watched him take off. He went about 200 feet in the air, rolled and crashed.” The band decided to write a song around the incident and include it on this, their second album).
