After six years and five albums, the demented parodists in Hayseed Dixie are still rejiggering rock and pop classics as moonshine-fueled bluegrass anthems. This time, creative picks like Cliff Richard’s “Devil Woman,” the Scissor Sisters’ “I Don’t Feel Like Dancing” and a cross-breeding of The Beatles’ “Strawberry Fields Forever” with the traditional “Cotton Eyed Joe” sit alongside more obvious targets like Judas Priest’s “Breaking the Law” and the Rolling Stones’ “Paint It Black.” Some off-color originals provide a little extra rationale for a joke that’s already gone on longer than expected.
