After the release of THE CRIMSON IDOL, Blackie Lawless left Capitol Records and took the W.A.S.P. namesake with him, although contractually he still owed Capitol/EMI one more recording. That record wound up being FIRST BLOOD, LAST CUTS, a best of W.A.S.P. collection. Along with 14 W.A.S.P. classics, FIRST BLOOD, LAST CUTS also featured two brand new songs: "Sunset & Babylon" and "Rock & Roll To Death."

"When we put out THE CRIMSON IDOL album we had a song "Chainsaw Charlie" that ruffled a lot of feathers with the president of the company at the time," explains Blackie Lawless. "I hated the bastard anyway and I wasn't going to compromise my music so he thought the song was about him. I don't know which line bothered him the most 'I'm a lying motherfucker' or 'I'm a cocksucking asshole' but we created a lot of friction. Capitol had gotten to the point that they were no longer going to be the label that supported this kind of music. Even when we did HEADLESS, EMI was not happy with it but when it became our biggest seller they had to shut up. The same thing happened when I did CRIMSON IDOL, they did not believe in the record, it came out and it ended up being the best thing I had ever done."
