Nickelback reveal ridiculously shreddy, borderline power-metal take on Charlie Daniels’ The Devil Went Down to Georgia

by GuitarDomain

In what is, amazingly, only the second most bizarre cover (thanks, Korn and Yelawolf) of Charlie Daniels’ The Devil Went Down to Georgia to be released since Daniels’ death at the age of 83 on June 6, Canadian rockers Nickelback have shared their own, borderline power-metal version of the 1979 country classic.
