The Devil Plays in all the Best Bands (Revised)

Description
I modified this song a little since posting it last week. I simplified the vox a little because the complex layering was detracting from the heaviness of parts of the song, especially the chorus.

This is not a devil worship song. The lyrical content is too idiotic to suggest anything else.

If you heard this song once already I don't blame you for not wanting to hear it again. Don't worry, I'll reach new alltime lows soon with another song entitled $12 Hooker. Yeah, the title says it all.

Lyrics
The Devil Plays in All the Best Bands

I was playing the Crue and the Sabbath in my room one day
When my mom barges in and says son I must say
This music is evil and is made from the devils hand
So I must destroy it son; it’s something I just can’t stand

So we go to the back yard and build a big fire
She says a prayer then throws my music in the pyre
After my mom did this I began to understand
That the devil he plays- he plays in all the best bands.

(chorus)
The devil plays in all the best bands
The devil plays in all the best bands
The devil plays in all
Yeah he plays in all
The devil plays in all the best bands

(chorus)

Well I won’t sell my soul for rock and roll
Cause at $30 a ticket it’s enough of a toll
But the devil plays with fire and smokes like a pro
He really puts on one hell of a show

He plays the meanest guitar he kills it on every note
He plays the funkiest bass like he’s got you by the throat
He rages on the drums like he’s beating on your head
And the way he sings makes you wish that your were dead

(chorus)

He plays the meanest guitar he kills it on every note
He plays the funkiest bass like he’s got you by the throat
He rages on the drums like he’s beating on your head
And the way he sings makes you wish that your were dead

(chorus)

didnt hear
the first one so i'm coming at it with new ears.
Intro is great! Not the strat i'm guessing?
Guitar work especially in the chorus is neat, the tone is especially thick and yeah, the vocals arent taking away from that hear.
Catchy chorus, super solo. Really liking the bass on this also.
Bring on the 12 dollar hooker...

Thanks Dick
for having a listen and for the kind words. I used the same Mesa Boogie amp for both guitar tracks; it's hard to beat the tone from a Mesa Boogie.

I enjoyed Slave Cell and greatly anticipate your next song. Hope it comes out soon.

Liked it last week, still like it. Can't hear much difference, and you took version 1 down! Looking forward to $12 hooker. Gonna unleash the strat on that one?

for having another listen. (I'm sorry man!) I pretty much just gave the song a haircut. There were a couple vocal layers that needed to go. In the chorus, the heavy guitar part was too far in the back by my obsessive howling. I wanted that to be in front.

I also took out some aaaah aaahs in the verses preceding the chorus because it made that part too sing songy.

I also tweeked the mix and brought the drums up a fuzz.

And the strat who's purchase was enticed by March Jam will make it's debut in 12$ Hooker. What a birth! eh?

I heard
the first post and I enjoyed that as much as I am enjoying this....it is very familiar...is that 'cus it is mostly the same song...oh yeah I am a t**t .Okay what I said in the comments to the last obne I say again now ...but you have expunged them from the face of the earth so I have to write anew..fie upon you.Sir,the devil is only playing heavy rockas a break from his day job which is manufacturing PCs And Macs and other info technology.Be'elzebub,his right hand man,is in charge of support and maintenance and doesn't that explain a lot.....bring on the hooker !

The Devil
Great tune (didn't hear version 1.0, but the mix sounds good on this one for sure!). Guitar tone is terrific, and I really like that bass sound too--sounds like maybe the devil was using a pick on the bass!

You got me!
I do pick the bass. I use a really soft pick so that it's hard to tell. I've been just too lazy to learn how to chicken pick.

I haven't checked out The James Goodwill yet, but I will shortly.

Very clever idea and lyrics. Great rocking sound. Reminds me of my mom's first encounter with Sabbath's Paranoid. Haha. Have you seen the Jack Black movie "Pick of Destiny"? Dave Grohl as Satan. Check it out.

You know, the Columbine massacre guys were pussies! I'm going on a massacre with brass knuckles, not guns like those guys.

That cracks me up!

i don't know how i missed this
i love devil rock and roll tunes. when i was a kid i actually tried to make a deal with the devil to be famous. didn't work. i guess lucky me. but i did try jesus first, he just didn't come through quick enough lol. did your mom really burn your rock records? i came home one day and my mom had been to a tent meeting and threw all my records away. LOL! that's such a great story, i'm glad now that it happened.

anyway dude this tune is GREAT. The lyrics kill, the bass smokes, and the riffing is like old sabbath / OLD van halen - makes you want to play air guitar wherever you hear it. downloaded for my truck, It'll help get me through the commute this week. Thanks dude!

Thanks tempie
I buried this one pretty fast with $12 Hooker.

This is fictitional. My mom was actually pretty tolerant. I feel bad I put her through listening to me learning how to play electric guitar. I feel bad for my kids having to put up with listening to me play even now. It's actually an onnoying instrument to have to listen to when someone is poking around with through licks.

What the hell?
STRONG build right-off the bat, cool. I like your vocal approach, delivered just right, and the doubling at the chorus sounds great. The mix is pretty hot (but I don't mean clipped) on the high end for me but the chops, hte whole tune... great tune, great power. And who doesn't like a good devil tune?

Thanks B6S
for the listen and the comments.

I do mix a little hot when I do the hard rock. I like the axe work to be pretty predominant.

Turn to Me is a great song man.

Man, this sounds really good. I didn't hear the previous version, but your production skills are improving in quantum leaps. Your heavy voice, guitar and bass playing are still there, but man, the sound is full. The drums are great too.
And the lyrics in this case are right on: sometimes idiotic lyrics hide some obscure message... mmh, I got you. Are you the devil?

Billy for dropping by and the really nice comments. My production has gotten better. I guess practice makes improvement.

I don't think I could stomach the devil's job too well. Chasing down souls spreading unhappiness. It would be a real downer being the devil.
