Helldorado is the 1999 album by the American heavy metal band W.A.S.P.. The album did not receive great reviews and many of W.A.S.P.'s fans did not like vocalist Blackie Lawless's new 'screaming' approach. The songs live up to the traditional controversial W.A.S.P. style with titles such as "Dirty Balls" and "Don't Cry (Just Suck)". The seventh track, "Cocaine Cowboys", is a pro-cocaine anthem with the lyric "Cocaine cowboys never die!".
