The Bloodhound Gang – “The Ballad Of Chasey Lain”
The Bloodhound Gang released the song “The Ballad of Chasey Lain” on their 1999 album.
The music video features the band performing the song on stage, and the director and the film crew are all women without clothes.
The song is presented as a series of letters to the star Chasey Lain from a fan, requesting that he be allowed to perform anilingus on her. Over the course of the story, the fan is revealed to be obsessive, and the lyrics get progressively angrier, in mockery of the stance taken by the overzealous fan archetype once the affection is perceived as being ignored.
Chasey Lain was the object of Jimmy Pop‘s obsession for a period leading up to the recording of the album (which led to the writing of the song), and was taped reading a dialog. Apparently, Chasey Lain never commented on this song about her.

After starring in over 270 adult films, the 24-year-old has leaves the industry because she believes she has done it all.

“From now on I will not be playing roles where I play a version of myself, or a hooker, for a very long time,” she vowed. “I think ‘The Girlfriend Experience’ and ‘Entourage’ were the best places to play those two roles and it can’t get any better. I don’t want to repeat myself, and I think if I continue to take those types of roles I will only be given those roles.”
Sasha Grey is now focused on mainstream movies and modeling.
