Since 1996, the Hillbilly Hellcats has toured the USA and 11 European countries, presenting their quirky rockabilly and psychobilly songs to their fans. Playing over 100 shows per year around the world, this band's clever and humorous take on current themes, and their powerful updated delivery of a 1950s genre of wild music, has their youthful demographic (18-35 range) singing the lyrics to all of their songs. Three Hillbilly Hellcats songs were featured in David Carradine's cult horror film Dead and Breakfast, while other music is being played on MTV, HBO, HGTV, and Court TV.
Based in Colorado, the members of Hillbilly Hellcats are all very independent, retaining all their song rights and continue being in great demand around the world. We expect their rousing, toe-tapping music will wrangle its way into our clients's films, TV productions, and down-home, countrified commercials.
Fast rockabilly swing with tongue in cheek lyrics about a combative girlfriend. Guitar and drums, 50's Stray Cats - Brian Setzer style. Story about a psycho bitch who always wants to fight - the kind that spent a lot of her childhood in the psych hospital and you know you're better off without. Male Vocals, Indie Rock, Rockabilly
Fast & wild rocking country/psychobilly in 2/4 galloping time, with twangy Gretsch guitar, banjo, slappin upright bass, double-kicking psycho/swing drumming, about rebellious hillbillies from hell. Stoners coming to town, look out! Taking names, kicking butt! Great chase scene, romcom, dark humor, Male Vocals, Indie Rock, Psychobilly
A song about acquiring and losing good fortune, and the difficulty of knowing which one you are experiencing. You can trade time for money and vice-versa. Friends appear when you have money, but will let you down when you are in trouble. You may be able to get what you want, but not all at once. Male Vocals, Indie Rock, Rockabilly
This song won in a focus group because of it's quirky, unmistakeable, melodic hook- the Adams Family meets Eminem- and leaves to the listener's imagination what exactly Hillbilly Love is. A Nashville song panelist called the lyrics "disturbing." A Mysterioso vibe for an irreverent show or movie. Male Vocals, Indie Rock, Rockabilly
A ballad set in New Orleans about meeting and becoming a vampire. Quirky and full of fun, in the mode of eerie stories such as Jim Stafford's Swamp Witch, with a faster beat. Ideal for dramatic and edgy True Blood type vampire stories. Male Vocals, Indie Rock, Rockabilly
Computer geek turns Rockabilly rebel. Get up in the morning, eat a pop-tart, get home late and watch TV while the wife nags. The weekend is freedom- to work on the lawn, and watch football. Time to chuck it all for a motorcycle, new girlfriend, parties, and drag races. Male Vocals, Indie Rock, Rockabilly
A swingin' ode to the Rockabilly/Psychobilly/Swing counterculture. Celebrating their own styles- dress, songs, speech, hangouts. Take a stand and give the mainstream the finger! Rockabilly rules, Ok? We'll never take over, it's hopeless, but that's OK. We've got our own dance and scene. Male Vocals, Indie Rock, Rockabilly
Mysterioso song which could be about a Zorro- like character. Overtones of Duane Eddy and Robert Mitchum. dude is in love and knows it's dangerous, but can't help himself He knows it's foolish, but follows anyway. song groove change up in the middle, complete with pause, where comment could be there, Male Vocals, Indie Rock, Rockabilly
