This song was recorded back in May 2006. The song tells the story of Johnny and how fast life can take a turn towards darkness. And that we are all accountable for our actions in the end. It was one of the first songs the band cut that marked the beginning of a change in musical direction and style. They were leaving the more rock-oriented sound behind and entering the world of Americana. The sound and music from the upcoming wave of alt-country bands and artists such as Whiskeytown, Wilco, and Damien Jurado made a big impact. Adding to that a huge inspiration from the classics such as The Band made the guys going full steam towards Swedencana and record four new songs that year.

“Johnny goes to hell” has now been remixed and mastered so we all can put it on our playlist.
