Divide & Conquer!

Swedish comedy band Rednex had the vision to pair country music with Eurodance/Techno and instantly found fame with their clear and fun message.

Their debut, Sex and Violins, came in 1994 and caught the public’s attention, dividing people into a “for” and “against” camp.

Their signature song, Cotton Eye Joe, opened up the album, giving people a sense of familiarity as it was a reworked old folk song called Cotton-Eyed Joe.

Hitting the top 5 in 17 countries and selling over 2 million copies in the process, Rednex became everyone’s favourite band to either love or hate.

Unsurprisingly, behind the straightforward production of banjo, fiddle, and male and female vocals to a dance beat, we find pop genius, Max Martin.

The debut also had singles Old Pop in an Oak and Wish You Were Here (not the Pink Floyd tune!).

The follow-up, …Farm Out!, didn’t do as well, even though they recorded the classic The Devil Went Down to Georgia. However, for some reason, it is not listed on the album if you look at Spotify.

One single actually did well in Europe: The Spirit of the Hawk. In fact, it became one of the top ten best-selling singles in Germany in the 2000s.
