A song on the Velvet Underground album of the same name, which involves injecting certain proscribed substances. (No, not heroin this time around.)

The song, and the album, are much noisier than their previous effort, The Velvet Underground and Nico, or either of the following albums, on which Lou Reed refined his lyrical sensibilities.

The track listing for the album is as follows:

  1. White Light/White Heat
  2. The Gift
  3. Lady Godiva's Operation
  4. Here She Comes Now
  5. I Heard Her Call My Name
  6. Sister Ray
Many hard-core Velvets fans, especially those who prefer John Cale to Lou Reed, find this album to be the apex of the band, especially the barely controlled chaos of Sister Ray, which takes up nearly an entire side of the album, sharing it with only I Heard Her Call My Name.
