this is a song lyrics of smooth sailing by QOTSA
A: As the person above me said, it’s slang for a male ejaculation. In the context of the song lyrics though, what he means by saying he blows his load over the status quo is he’s basically saying “fuck the status quo”.
He’s stating that he doesn’t care about what’s normal or expected of him in a vulgar manner.

Don’t use this phrase to mean that though. It only means this in the context of how the singer is using it. It’s not a normal phrase.

The normal meaning is the ejaculation one.
