Lordi, who are frequently referred to as a Satanic band, often point to this song — which refers to the Devil as the singer's "bitch" — as evidence contrary to that assertion. As the songwriter and composer Tomi Putaansuu (Mr. Lordi) puts it, "We have many fans who are believers. Devil Is a Loser opened the gates in that perspective. It has such a statement that fans in faith realised that these guys are on our side."
"Devil Is a Loser" was one of six songs performed in the 26 May 2006 open-air concert in Helsinki, where the band celebrated their Eurovision victory, the first for any Finnish band, where the song "Hard Rock Hallelujah" won them a record 292 points. The song reached number 9 on the Finland Top 20 chart on February 15, 2003 and number 10 on the World Modern Rock Top 30 Singles on February 15, 2003.
