    The title isn't a noun, it;'s a sexual euphemism made from a verb and pronoun: "block bust her!".

    All credit to the production crew at the BBC; the vision mixing and video effects are a good match for the song and performance. Somehow you feel that people will be watching this hundreds of years from now, checking their calendars to see that this was not much more than 25 years after the end of WWII, and wondering what the hell must have happened in between.

      @Neil Morgan see my 2nd comment,I heard the Sweet base player after I made the 1st comment,so I agree with him,no one stole anything in this case.

      Not one stole anything. Just coincidence. It's a typical blues riff heard in many songs.

    How about Blockbuster instead of Gary Glitter's Rock and Roll track for the staircase scene in The Joker film? Just a thought.......

      @325133 Good point. I was just thinking lyrically it would've tied in quite well to what was happening in the film

      @AnteroizationRecording dates: Jean Genie 6th October 1972, Blockbuster 1st November 1972. Both were on the same label. There is plenty of information on the internet about the similarity, the consensus of opinion seems to be that it was just coincidence.

    Why is every second comment obsessing about their sexuality? FFS they are PERFORMERS on stage, wearing makeup and, gee, COSTUMES. Having FUN, in a time before everyone went insane about everything. God no wonder so many of us want to go back!
