    Actually, it is a reference to the movie Zoolander, which is a comedy. Ben Stiller's character (Zoolander) is a fashion model (and assassin) and he gives names to the poses he takes in front of the camera. One of the poses, which nobody can supposedly resist, is called "Blue Steel."

    Although "bluing" is something that actually is done to gun metal to harden it (i.e. heating/plating with nickel), that is not what this particular song is referring to.
