Songs About Satan

The current Q magazine, devotes a "best of the best to download" Essential Playlist to Songs About Satan. Their List:

1. Muse - The Small Print (from Absolution)

2. Beck - Satan Gave Me A Taco (beat out "Devil's Haircut", apparently)

3. Tori Amos - Father Lucifer (from Boys for Pele)

4. Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds - Up Jumped The Devil (from Tender Prey)

5. Iron Maiden - The Number Of The Beast

6. Charlie Daniels Band - The Devil Went Down To Georgia

7. Max Romeo - Chase The Devil

8. The Rolling Stones - Sympathy For The Devil (from Beggars Banquet)

9. Louvin Brothers - Satan Is Real

10. Robert Johnson - Me And The Devil Blues

There was also a reader challenge to create a Songs About Satan playlist. The winner, "E. Guard, of Poole" selected artists ranging from AC/DC ("Highway to Hell", naturally) to Elvis Presley ("Devil In Disguise"), as well as Sonic Youth's awesomely-titled "Satan Is Boring".

Sonic Youth - Satan Is Boring (from Bad Moon Rising)

Left Out: INXS' "Devil Inside", Pulp's "The Mark Of The Devil", Cake's "Satan Is My Motor", Morrissey's "Satan Rejected My Soul"...
