"Hot Blooded" is a song by the British-American hard rock band Foreigner, from their second studio album Double Vision. It was released as a single in June 1978 and reached #3 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart that September. The single was also certified Platinum (one million units sold) by the Recording Industry Association of America.

Foreigner's lead singer and co-writer of the song explains in his book, Juke Box Hero, where the title came from: "In the case of "Double Vision", my inspiration came from a hockey game. The New York Rangers were playing the Philadelphia Flyers in the Stanley Cup playoffs and during a flurry in front of the net, one of the Flyers elbowed Rangers goalie John Davidson in the head. He was knocked woozy and had to be helped to the locker room. One of the announcers came on with an update…that the goalie had been experiencing some double vision. Voila!"
