Army Of Lovers – Crucified

„Crucified“ is a 1991 song recorded by the Swedish band Army of Lovers. It is the first single from their second album Massive Luxury Overdose and the seventh single to be released by the band. It was released from May 1991 (in Sweden) to February 1992 (in France). A re-edition that features on Massive Luxury Overdose (US Version) was made in 1992. „Crucified“ is possibly the best known song released by the band.

It was recorded by Jean-Pierre Barda (vocals, drums), Alexander Bard (vocals, computer) and La Camilla (vocals, bass) who also feature in the videoclip. The two remixes available on the CD maxi and vinyl 12″ maxi are made by Nuzak.

Kurt Cobain of the hugely successful alternative rock group Nirvana praised the band in his posthumously published journals, but specifically the song „Crucified.“

The song was successful in several European countries, including Germany, Sweden, Austria and Switzerland, where it reached the top 10. It reached the #1 in Belgium. In the United States, „Crucified“ became a huge club hit and radio favorite, debuting at #6 in the U.S. Billboard Dance singles chart and spending a total of 14 weeks in the Top-20.

The song was played in Gabriel Aghion’s 1996 film, P├ędale douce, and was thus included in the track listing of the soundtrack. It was also played in the film Marock (2005).

The video for the song was featured in the third season episode of Beavis and Butthead Cleaning House. The pair react favourably to the video when Camilla is on screen (mainly due to her breasts) but complain when the men appear.
