The Louvin Brothers – Satan Is Real (1959)

This has to be one of the stupidest and creepiest things I’ve ever heard. From the album cover, to the recurring themes of Satan and, weirdly, drunk people in there songs, to the creepy ass delivery of the vocalist who comes in on the choruses (I’m not sure which brother it is). Honestly, everything about this is fucked but musically it’s pretty fun.

Oh, I also now know where the “Hell is a real place” sample in ICP’s “Walk Into The Darkness” comes from. Every day is a learning experience, kids.

I’d love a copy of this on vinyl or cassette just because of how odd it is.
