"All You Need Is Blood" is the name of the first single released by mash-up band Beatallica, a group known for their combination of Beatles music and Metallica lyrics and riffs. The song is a parody of the Beatles' song "All You Need Is Love". In the same tradition of the Beatles, the cover features the members of Beatallica holding signs that read the song title in different languages, and each track (except for the last) begins with a musical quote from a different national anthem.

The maxi single contains fourteen tracks, each in a different language except for the last track, which is a radio edit of the American English version. Beatallibangers (fans) worldwide submitted the lyrics which were used and unedited by the band. It was released on May 20, 2008.

The Japanese CD import version, which includes a bonus track of the song in Japanese, was released by Sony/ATV on October 8, 2008.

As of Oct. 2008, Beatallica has recorded and released 14 different language versions of this song and they have left the project as an ongoing endeavor. Beatallibangers worldwide may submit new language versions directly to the band via their website.
