"Ring of Fire" or "The Ring of Fire" is a country music song popularized by Johnny Cash and co-written by June Carter (wife of Johnny Cash) and Merle Kilgore. The single appears on Cash's 1963 compilation album, Ring of Fire: The Best of Johnny Cash.
The song was recorded on March 25, 1963 and became the biggest hit of his career, staying at number one on the charts for seven weeks.
Numerous cover versions of "Ring of Fire" have been produced, the most commercially successful version being by Social Distortion, who released their punk rock version on the album, Social Distortion (1990). The single reached #25 on the Billboard Modern Rock Tracks, 27 years after the single was first recorded by Cash.
The song has also been covered by singer and satirist, Frank Zappa. Zappa's version is a deconstructed, reggae rendition which appears on his album, The Best Band You Never Heard in Your Life (1991). The arrangement was concocted in anticipation of a guest appearance by Cash in Europe which was canceled at the last minute.
"Ring of Fire" ranked #4 on CMT's 100 Greatest Songs in Country Music in 2003 and #87 on Rolling Stone's list of The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.
The Eric Burdon & The Animals version who was recorded in the end of 1968, charted in 1969 in the following countries: UK: #25, GER: #19, AUS: #10, AU: #8, NL: #4, it failed to chart in the US. In late 1974, The Eric Burdon Band released a heavier version. In 2006, Burdon performed the song sometimes at his concerts.
