Rednex (also spelt Red Nex) is a Swedish manufactured band that had an international novelty hit with the song "Cotton Eye Joe" in 1995. Rednex is the brainchild of Swedish producers Janne Ericsson, Örjan Öberg, Pat Reiniz and Brian Reddyb, who decided to try mixing country music with techno. They decided to rework the traditional folk song, "Cotton-Eyed Joe", into a dance song. They recorded the song with studio musicians, put together a fake group of redneck role players to represent a group, and released it in 1994, to huge worldwide success, especially in Europe and Australia.
