The Devil's Rejects

I am a member of the International Mix Tape Project.  For the uninitiated, The International Mixtape Project is a global community of music-oriented souls that exchange monthly compilation tapes and CD-Rs. You can visit the site at, then click on Rules to find out more about IMP. Well, some months are busier than others, and it stands to reason that some month’s mixes are better than others due to the amount of time I get to spend on them. If I have the time I do some sort of theme, and if I’m too busy I just throw together some highlights for the material I’ve been listening to that month. This month I’ve had a lot of time to work on the May mix. My theme is Devil Music and basically consists of songs that have “devil” in the title or have the devil as a large focus of the song. I started by collecting every song I could think of and collecting some mighty fine suggestions from some of the message boards I frequent. At the start of this I had over 4 hours worth of songs to sift through.  Needless to say a lot of songs had to hit the cutting room floor. I figured today would be a good reason to post up some of the songs that had to get whacked. Some were whacked for being too quiet, some for not fitting the overall sound of the disc and some for having a sound that was already overly represented on the disc. Sometime next month I’ll offer you the devil music compilation but today I present to you the devil’s rejects:

Beck – Devil’s Haircut
br549 – The Devil and Me

Charlie Terrell – I Dreamed I Was The Devil

Danzig – Devil’s Plaything
Danzig – Heart Of The Devil

INXS – Devil Inside

Jason Boland & The Stragglers – Time In Hell
Jay Farrar – Devil In Disguise

Old 97’s – Up The Devil’s Pay

The Rolling Stones – Sympathy for the Devil
The Legendary Shack Shakers – Devil’s Night Auction

Willie Nelson – Devil in a Sleeping Bag
Willie Nelson – You Look Like the Devil
