"Shout at the Devil" is a song by the American heavy metal band Mötley Crüe. Written by bassist Nikki Sixx, the song is the title track of their album of the same name. The song charted at No. 30 on the US Mainstream Rock chart.[1]

The original version did not have a music video. However, the 1997 version did.


The song was one of several which conservative groups alleged encouraged devil worship.[2] The song was re-recorded by the band for their 1997 album, Generation Swine, titled "Shout at the Devil '97".
