The Illbillys: Song List
This is a reasonably complete list of all the songs that the Illbillys have played, ever. 'Tis the list from whence all setlists are born. If there are any of these songs that you simply must hear at your event, please be so kind as to give the band a heads-up so they can brush it off and make it sparkle.

Additionally, the Illbillys will play requests, as long as they're made as LONG before the event as possible, so they can, like, y'know, LEARN the song.

Shrieking the name of a random song at the closest Illbilly when they're playing will generally not result in a performance of that song...unless it's a song on this list!
