Devilish Party Playlist

NYT Bestselling author James Rollins' new book, "The Devil Colony" was released today. There's a 24hr virtual release party for the book on twitter, on the #DevilColony hashtag. Stop in and say hi.

That got me thinking. A virtual party needs a virtual playlist, a party soundtrack to keep the party rolling along. So I've put a few things together, keeping to the theme of the party, and listed anything I could think of with 1) 'Devil' in the title and 2) anything that referenced 'Hell' directly.

Van Halen - "Running with the Devil"
INXS - "Devil Inside"
The Charlie Daniels Band - "The Devil went down to Georgia"
Steve Earl - "The Devil's right hand"
The Grateful Dead - "Friend of the Devil"
Joe Satriani - "Devil's Slide"
Paul Sanchez - "Ride with the Devil"
Dash Rip Rock - "Hell's Scared"
Meatloaf - "Bat out of Hell"
Drivin' n' Cryin' - "Straight to Hell"
The Grateful Dead - "Hell in a bucket"
Jason and The Scorchers - "Hell's Gates"
Marvelous 3 - "Cold as Hell"

Feel free to add your own suggestions to the playlist. I know I've missed a few!


Programing Note: On June 23rd, Twitter's own @Jinxie_G (author N.L. Gervasio) drops by to share her new book "Nemesis" with Brain Drippings. Don't miss it!


  1. Love it. Devil Went Down to Georgia is a special favorite. Love Charlie Daniels Band. :D

  2. Thanks Sonia. CDB was about the 3rd or 4th song that came to mind when started putting this list together in my head. :)

  3. Pretty much the entire AC/DC song library could fit one way or another. "Hells Bells" and "Highway to Hell" both spring to mind.

    The Rolling Stones' "Sympathy for the Devil" would also be a good choice.

  4. Yeah, my mind blanked on a lot of things making this list. Motley Crue - "Shout at the Devil" was on another's list.

    Welcome to the blog, btw!
