...for the most vulgar, violent, and offensive blues song in the world. I nominate "shave 'em dry" by Lucille Bogan.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2ko2VXpW7_g

I got nipples on my titties, big as the end of my thumb,
I got somethin’ between my legs’ll make a dead man come,
Oh daddy, baby won’t you shave ‘em dry?
Aside: Now, draw it out!
Want you to grind me baby, grind me until I cry.

(Roland: Uh, huh.)
Say I ****ed all night, and all the night before baby,
And I feel just like I wanna, **** some more,
Oh great God daddy,
(Roland: Say you gonna get it. You need it.)
Grind me honey and shave me dry,
And when you hear me holler baby, want you to shave it dry.

I got nipples on my titties, big as the end of my thumb,
Daddy you say that’s the kind of ‘em you want, and you can make ‘em come,
Oh, daddy shave me dry,
(Roland: She ain’t gonna work for it.)
And I’ll give you somethin’ baby, swear it’ll make you cry.

I’m gon’ turn back my mattress, and let you oil my springs,
I want you to grind me daddy, ’til the bell do ring,
Oh daddy, want you to shave ‘em dry,
Oh great God daddy, if you can’t shave ‘em baby won’t you try?

Now if ****in’ was the thing, that would take me to heaven,
I’d be ****in’ in the studio, till the clock strike eleven,
Oh daddy, daddy shave ‘em dry,
I would **** you baby, honey I’d make you cry.

Now your nuts hang down like a damn bell sapper,
And your dick stands up like a steeple,
Your goddam ass-hole stands open like a church door,
And the crabs walks in like people.
Aside: Ow, shit!
(Roland: Aah, sure enough, shave ‘em dry?)
Aside: Ooh! Baby, won’t you shave ‘em dry

A big sow gets fat from eatin’ corn,
And a pig gets fat from suckin’,
Reason you see this *****, fat like I am,
Great God, I got fat from ****in’.
Aside: Eeeeh! Shave ‘em dry
(Roland: Aah, shake it, don’t break it)

My back is made of whalebone,
And my **** is made of brass,
And my ****in’ is made for workin’ men’s two dollars,
Great God, round to kiss my ass.
Aside: Oh! Whoo, daddy, shave ‘em dry

Right? And that was 1935. I can't even imagine how the average white person reacted when they heard that.

Another one

Wanna set the world on fire
That is my one mad desire
I'm a devil in disguise
Got murder in my eyes

Now I could see blood runnin'
Through the streets
Now I could see blood runnin'
Through the streets
Could be everybody
Layin' dead right at my feet

Now man who invented war
Sure is my friend
The man invented war
Sure is my friend
Don't believe that I'm sinkin'
Just look what a hole I am in

Give me gunpowder
Give me dynamite
Give me gunpowder
Give me dynamite
Yes I'd wreck the city
Wanna blow it up tonight

I took my big Winchester
Down off the shelf
I took my big Winchester
Down off the shelf
When I get through shootin'
There won't be nobody left

it might not be classed strictly as blues, but for me Nick Cave's 'Stagger Lee' takes some beating in this category.
I've been imitated so well I've heard people copy my mistakes.

Nick Cave is awesome doing stagger lee.

Check out his version of the blues song 'i'm gonna kill that woman' http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4E4CTA9KrZ8
There's no swearing in it but it's one of the most violent songs i've ever heard.
edit: skip to like 1:15 for it to start

Sounds a lot like Shotgun blues, by Lightnin' Hopkins. He recorded several versions of the song, one of which included the lyrics. "Go on and bring me my shotgun, and a pocket full of shells. I'm gonna kill my woman, cus she's been sleeping around with somebody else."

Speaking of Stagger Lee, though, do you guys know the history of the song? I've heard so many versions of it. It would be nice to know who did it first. I know it's often called "Stack-O-Lee." My favorite version is probably Samual L. Jackson's from Black Snake Moan.

Muddy Water's "Can't be satisfied" has a pretty violent verse too. "Feel like slappin,' pistol in yo' face." These old blues guys always sound so convincing.

Stack o lee is the story of a real murder that happened, a pimp who was also a big guy and got the nickname 'stack' because of it. He shot a guy called Billy Lyons for something trivial and then eventually he got sentenced to death for it. For some reason there have been loads of songs written about the murder
