New to working with Zombie was Blasko who came on to play bass and Mike Riggs who played the guitar. The album would also see guest drums from Tommy Leeof Motley Crue.

The album debuted at number six on the Billboard 200 charts selling an estimated 121,000 copies in its initial weeks’ release.  By September 29th, Hellbilly had already shipped over 500,000 copies which earned the album a gold certification from the Recording Industry Association of America. By November 4th the album had attained platinum status and by April of the following year multi-platinum.

Three singles were released for Hellbilly including Living Dead Girl, Dragula and Superbeast– all tracks that are still played by Zombie in his live shows.

In 2005, the album was re-released as a deluxe edition CD + DVD combo. All videos on the re-release were directed by Rob Zombie.

1 Call of the Zombie 00:30
And out of the darkness, the Zombie did call
True pain and suffering he brought to them all
Away ran the children to hide in their beds,
for fear that the devil would chop off their heads
2 Superbeast 03:40
Shriek the lips
Across ragged tongue,
Convulsing together.Sing
violently, Move the jaw
Cry aloud. Bound up the Dead
Triumphantly The ragged they come and
The ragged they kill!
You pray so hard on bloody knees.
The ragged they come and
The ragged they kill!
Down in the cool air I can see.Hey, Yeah – I’m the one that you wanted
Hey, Yeah – I’m your Superbeast
Hey, Yeah – I’m the one that you wanted
Hey, Yeah – I’m your SuperbeastStir the limbs across the wrist,
Full possession of memory.
Bury me as a dog,
Icy hands surrounding me.The ragged they come and
The ragged they kill!
You pray so hard on bloody knees.
The ragged they come and
The ragged they kill!
Down in the cool air I can see.Hey, Yeah – I’m the one that you wanted
Hey, Yeah – I’m your Superbeast
Hey, Yeah – I’m the one that you wanted
Hey, Yeah – I’m your SuperbeastShriek the lips
Across ragged tongue,
Convulsing together.Sing
violently, Move the jaw
Cry aloud. Bound up the Dead
TriumphantlyThe ragged they come and
The ragged they kill!
You pray so hard on bloody knees.
The ragged they come and
The ragged they kill!
Down in the cool air I can see.Hey, Yeah – I’m the one that you wanted
Hey, Yeah – I’m your Superbeast
Hey, Yeah – I’m the one that you wanted
Hey, Yeah – I’m your Superbeast
3 Dragula 03:42
Dead I am the one, Exterminating son
Slipping through the trees, strangling the breeze
Dead I am the sky, watching angels cry
As they slowly turn, conquering the wormDig through the ditches
And Burn through the witches
I slam in the back of my
Dragula!Dig through the ditches
And Burn through the witches
I slam in the back of my
Dragula!Dead I am the pool, spreading from the fool
Weak and what you need, nowhere as you bleed
Dead I am the rat, feast upon the cat
Tender is the fur, cying as you purrDig through the ditches
And Burn through the witches
I slam in the back of my
Dragula!Dig through the ditches
And Burn through the witches
I slam in the back of my
Dragula!Do it baby, Do it baby
Do it baby, Do it babyBurn like an animalDead I am the life, dig into the skin
Knuckle crack the bone, 21 to win
Dead I am the dog, hound of hell you cry
Devil on your back, I can never dieDig through the ditches
And Burn through the witches
I slam in the back of my
Dragula!Dig through the ditches
And Burn through the witches
I slam in the back of my
Dragula!Do it baby, Do it baby
Do it baby, Do it baby
Burn like an animalDig through the ditches
And Burn through the witches
I slam in the back of my
Dragula!Dig through the ditches
And Burn through the witches
I slam in the back of my
Dragula!Dig through the ditches
And Burn through the witches
I slam in the back of my
Dragula!
4 Living Dead Girl 03:21
Rage in the cage
And piss upon the stage

Sink into me
Die for me
Living Dead Girl
Crawl on me
Sink into me
Die for me

And hustling the freak
Like a hunchback juice

Of an SS Whore
Making scary soundsCrawl on me
Sink into me
Die for me
Living Dead GirlCrawl on me
Sink into me
Die for me
Living Dead Girl
Psyclone Jack
Hallucinating Hack

Eats dollar bills
Goldfoot machine
Creates another fiend
So Beautiful,
They make you kill
Crawl on me
Sink into me
Die for me
Living Dead Girl
Crawl on me
Sink into me
Die for me
Living Dead Girl
Blood on her skin
Dripping with Sin
Do it again

Give a jig and show some life

and a haunted eye.
Falling plastic and paper demons!
No trace of time,

Phantom Stranger!
Down you go,
all alone,

Phantom Strange!rMy sinister sounds
Sweep the grounds
Still-born I Lie beneath it
I throw it away
the freaks all stay
Deformed and laughing screaming!All you know,
is alone,
you see a,
Phantom Stranger!
Down you go,
all alone,
you love my,
Phantom Stranger!A wretched heart
in the dark decay,
dominate forever…
Destroy the things you love
and see if I rememberAll you know,
is alone,
you see a,
Phantom Stranger!
down you go
all alone
you love my,
Phantom Stranger!
