"voodoo mammon", the openly satanic song of French rocker Johnny Hallyday

(above a picture of mr. Hallyday getting a 666 tattoo at 71)

Lyrics:

I am the son of Lucifer
Lord and Ruler of the Earth
I sow the bad word
When you cry, I laugh
I knocked out my challenger
The young hippie from Bethlehem
Who fought with flowers
You tore it down yourselves
You are my humble servants
Be cursed in my house!
Mammon, voodoo
I am the craziest reason
Voodoo, mammon
I am the madness of the strongest
I made-up your idols
I divide you and I arm you
you need oil
And me of blood, sweat and tears
In the Miami-Los Angeles
I put a madman with a bomb
Two hundred pequins shaking their buttocks
And who won’t need a grave
You are my humble servants
Be cursed in my house!
golden calf, voodoo
I am the craziest reason
Voodoo, golden calf
I am the madness of the strongest
I invented all the flags
To never agree
When you get a hole in your skin
I say “Bravo”, I shout “Again!”
You are my humble servants
Be cursed in my house!
Mammon, voodoo
I am the craziest soul
Voodoo, mammon
I am the madness of the strongest
Mammon, voodoo
I am the craziest soul
Voodoo, mammon
I am the madness of the strongest.

I just looked into him and even though the instrumental for the song is completely different and more funk inspired. The lyrics clearly have been inspired by The Rolling Stones Sympathy for the devil.
