Alice In Chains – ‘The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here’

<i>A rare and welcome appearance for Old Nick</i>

Satan pops up all too rarely in rock these days, but the Seattle rock warlords summon him for the evolution-defying title of their new single. Over groaning chords so heavy they sound like a choir of angry triceratops, the lyrics actually say something quite intelligent about Christianity. Richard Dawkins won’t know whether to love it or hate it.
