"Devilock" as written by and Glenn Danzig....
So make this demon offering
Best demon offering
Curious about the eye of death, oh

Gonna make it public
Gonna make you pay
Gonna rip your skull out
Eye of death, I know

Devilock, you rip your heart, I have 'em
Devilock, I rip your eyes out of hell

Hell is pumping something
Into lots of people
Curious about the eye of death, oh

Gonna make it public
Gonna make you pay
Gonna rip your skull out
Eyes of death, I have them

Devilock, you rip your heart, I have 'em
Devilock, I rip your heart out of hell

Oh
Devilock, I rip your heart out, I have 'em
Devilock, I pluck your eyes out, I have 'em
Devilock, I rip your heart out of hell

Go, go, go, go, go

    General CommentThe title of this song came from the devilock hairstyle originally invented by Jerry Only in 1979.
    ...they need an icon with a devilock on here...:)

    General CommentActually, if you want to get all technical... Jerry originally called it "The Wave" but Glenns mother came up with the name "Devilock" and they though that was more sinister and stuck. And therefore you have this song Devilock. I couldn't possible tell you what the song means for sure though, it obviously as something to do with hell and then devil as are typical Misfit songs...

    General CommentI typically study songs like this to determine whether they're promoting the devil or just singing about the devil for the sake of being gritty.

    The song starts out, "so make this demon offering," but doesn't really go beyond that. I think what it's singing about how the devil tricks people into falling for his games, and they'll eventually go to hell. The song capitalizes on telling the populace how evil the devil is. They are a "horror punk" band, after all.

    I don't consider Misfits a satanic band by any means, and I doubt they promote satanism. And if they ever did, it was for the sake of a song and not intentional (I wouldn't listen to the song either way). I found on RYM that the album is tagged as "satanic," the only Misfits album to weild that tag. But the term "satanic" is loosely defined by people who aren't religious. I have a much more defined topic. Satanic means "promoting the devil," and not just singing about the devil. If a song talks about how evil the devil is or triesd to make a dumb horror punk song out of it, I don't really mind. If it carries lyrics about "praising black sathanas" or whatever like in an Electric Wizard song, I discount the band entirely.

    Misfits writes horror songs. They write punk songs joking about the horrors of cinema and literature, and are in no way promoting it. Sure, the beginning of this song is questionable, which leads me to my interpretation.

    Most of the song seems to be sung from the perspective of someone who clearly wants to massacre humanity, i.e. a demon or the devil. The song makes the devil look very bad and very untrustworthy, a trait found in Sympathy for the Devil by Rolling Stones.

    So the song talks about how evil the devil is, and is not a form of promotion in anyway. it's true a lot of people confuse warnings in music with promotions, like many Alice in Chains and Black Sabbath songs. But the truth is to Misfits, and it shows in their lyrics, scary stuff is a big joke. So yes, I would listen to this album, even if I'm very heavily Christian. I just know what to look for. At the time of writing this post, it is the Sabbath, so I won't spend my time listening to it today. Doesn't seem appropriate. But it felt pretty obvious once I actually thought about it. When I think about whethert or not a song is satanic, I get drawn to study and study it until I've reached a thorough conclusion that I wholeheartedly accept. Misfits are not satanic.
