31 Songs Of Halloween: Primus: The Devil Went Down To Georgia12.10.15
The Devil Went Down To Georgia was a song written by the Charlie Daniels Band that became a huge hit for them in 1979. It's about a man who enters a fiddle playing contest against the devil and wagers his soul, so confident that he's the "best that's ever been".
Primus covered The Devil Went Down To Georgia in 1998 among other covers on their 9-song EP, Rhinoplasty, accompanied by the video album, Videoplasty which included the claymation music video for the song, directed by Mike Johnson.
