"Shout At The Devil" as written by and Nikki Sixx....
Shout shout shout
Shout shout shout
It shout at the devil

He's the wolf screaming lonely in the night
He's the blood stain the stage
He's the tear in your eye
Been tempted by his lie
He's the knife in your back, he's rage
He's the razor to the knife
Oh lonely is our lives
My heads spinnin' round and round
But in seasons of wither
We'll stand and deliver
Be strong and laugh and

Shout shout shout
Shout at the devil
Shout shout shout

He'll be the love in your eyes
He'll be the blood between your thighs
And then have you cry for more
He'll put your strength to the test
He'll put the thrill back in death
Sure you've heard it all before
He'll be the risk in the kiss
Might be anger on your lips
Might run scared for the door
But in seasons of wither
We'll stand and deliver
Be strong and laugh and

Shout shout shout
Shout at the devil
Shout shout shout
Shout at the devil

He's the wolf screaming lonely in the night
He's the blood stain the stage
He's the tear in your eye
Been tempted by his lie
He's the knife in your back, he's rage
He's the razor to the knife
Oh lonely is our lives
My heads spinnin' round and round
But in seasons of wither
We'll stand and deliver
Be strong and laugh and

Shout shout shout
Shout at the devil
Shout shout shout
Shout at the devil

Shout shout shout
Shout at the devil
Shout shout shout
Shout at the devil

Shout shout shout
Shout at the devil
Shout shout shout
Shout at the devil

Shout shout shout
Shout shout shout
Shout shout shout
Shout shout shout
Shout shout shout
Shout shout shout

    General Commentactually there is a meaning, nikki sixx beleived that Ronald Reagan was the antichrist and he wanted everyone to shout at him. he beleived it because Ronald Wilson Reagan's names each have six letters in them, so its 666. it all makes perfect sense because the bible says that the antichrist's name will bear the mark of 666, he will be in a high position of power, he will try to decieve you and tell you he is a man of god, etc, etc. and reagan fell into all of those categories.

    but thats what the song is about

    General Commenti saw on an interview with nikki and i think it was tommy and hes holding up the record and hes like "SHOUT AT IT, see theres a pentagram on it up side down you think its bad? just turn the record the other way around" i dont know if that was word for word but thats what he said, that was a interview back in the 80s (i watched it on Much More Music)

    General Commentyeah, anyone who has read "the dirt" will know that he wrote it while he was reading the 'Necronomicon' and that it was originally called 'Shout with the devil'. The lyrics were also changed because in the original script for the song all the "He's" were "I". "I'm the wolf screaming lonely in the night, I'm the bloodstain on the stage." And yes it was changed because the manager knew it would not get marketed by Elektra if they didn't change it.

    General CommentI don't think there is really a deep meaning here, it is just awesome hair metal.

    General CommentThat is true, but he started to believe that after he had written the song, when he was shooting up heroin.

    The song was supposed to be called "Shout with the devil" but he changed it at the request of their agent, after Nikki Sixx' dabblings with the occult started to go wrong.

    General CommentApparently at the time, he had been fucking about with black magic. He had been casting spells out of a copy of the 'Necronomicon' and he believed that he had summoned evil spirits, which were throwing haunting the apparment he shared with his girlfriend.
    Apparently folks used to jump of the floor, straight into the ceiling and cupboard doors opened and closed by themselves.

    General CommentThis song to me is about the devil that can make you feel all these desires because he has the power to. About the other stories about Nikki the way he wrote this song. It's probably true. Oh well i guess...it's still rocking
