"Demon Speeding" is the second official single from Rob Zombie's second album The Sinister Urge and can also be found on Rob Zombie's compilation album Past, Present & Future.

Chris Vrenna, formerly of the band Nine Inch Nails, remixed the song in 2002, this version of the song is entitled "Demon Speeding (Black River Mix)" and can be found on the NASCAR sponsored compilation album entitled Crank It Up and also in the video game FlatOut 2. The audio sample heard at the beginning of the song, "Why don't you ask me what it feels like to be a freak?", is from the film The Amazing Colossal Man. It has also featured on the Kerrang! Vol. 3 album, however, it was incorrectly named as "Dead Girl Superstar."


The song also appears in the Mexican animated movie Una Película de Huevos y un Pollo released in March 2009.

An additional appearance is made in the Entourage episode "Vegas, Baby" to close the show with a fight between Seth Green, E, Turtle and Johnny Drama.
