good songs already....I think if the killing is horrible enough even an obstemious single killing - if brutal, could earn the description 'blood bath...'

(songs about mining disasters, ships sinking and wars probably warrant their own thread. murder ballads are big in folk and country...)

Nick Cave's "O'Malley's Bar" and Genesis "The Battle Of Epping Forest" might fit the bill, as would "Ludlow Massacre" by Woody Guthrie

I can think of quite a few with one or two deaths at the end - Barbara Allen, William Taylor, Cruel Sister, Clerk Saunders, James Connolly, Stack o'Lee, Frankie & Johnny - but not exactly Shakespearean stuff. Where there is a large number of deaths (eg Lord Franklin, The Rising of the Moon), they're usually implied rather than described.

There's Red Haired Mary though - not a bloodbath, more a barroom brawl of a song.
