It’s country music time here in our office. We’ve just been listening to some Johnny Cash and Charlie Daniels Band. The Snook and I were both reflecting on the genius that is “Devil Went Down to Georgia” when I wondered if anyone’s ever done a dance remix of it. A little googling turned up quite a list of covers. We have to get some of these.

  • “Devil Went Down to Brixton”
  • “Devil Went Down to Scunthorpe” (the punk version)
  • “Devil Went to Jamaica” (the weed version)
  • “Devil Came Up to Michigan” (the rap version)
  • “Cuando El Diablo bajo’ a” (the Spanish version)
  • “Cletus Went Down to Florida” (the redneck version)

The Snook is hunting for these online as we speak. We’re envisioning an entire album of covers of this song. 🙂

  1. “Chicken in the bread box pickin’ out dough/Granny does yer dog bit no chile no.”

    Ooh, I want it.

  2. “The devil bowed his head, because he knew that he’d been beat. And he laid that golden fiddle on the ground at Johnny’s feet. Johnny said, “Devil, just come on back if you ever wanna try again. I done tol’ you once, you son of a bitch, I’m the best there’s ever been!”


  3. Dude, does anyone remember the dance mix of “Cotton-Eyed Joe?” Or did I just imagine that whole thing?

  4. I remember it, but wish I didn’t. It wasn’t nearly as good as “Devil Went Down to Georgia.” Speaking of, have you guys heard the sequel, “Devil Went Back to Georgia”? It came out a few years ago. Johnny Cash narrates it, and Travis Tritt plays the devil. It’s okay, not as good as the original.

  5. Hi! I have MP#s for all but The Devil Went down to Brixton if anyone is interested… 🙂 I hope to find Brixton soon…

  6. For what it’s worth, the mp3 of the Devil Went Down to Georgia show we did is now online:

    You’ll have to sit through our inane chatter, but it’s worth it.

  7. I’m sure that everyone has heard “Al Gore Went Down to FL” by now, but I have it as well now…still looking for Brixton though…
