Not sure how much referral spam affects bounce rate. I've never found a way to get rid of referral spam, the only option seems to be to get rid of it from Analytics so it doesn't clutter up the stats. It doesn't in and of itself cause harm, except I see your point it can affect bounce rate. Although, strangely, I haven't found bounce rate to be a big factor in getting SERP position and traffic.
You can filter out referral spam in Google Analytics and eliminate any impact on your numbers.. Go to Admin / View / Filters.
