: Killing Floor Torpedo Run

Killing floor is literally a place where animals are killed. Used figuratively in "Killing Floor" as sung by Howlin' Wolf:

"... should'a went on, when my friend come from Mexico at me
I was foolin' with ya baby, I let ya put me on the killin' floor
Lord knows, I should'a been gone
Lord knows, I should'a been gone
And I wouldn't've been here, down on the killin' floor..."
