It just occurred to me that maybe the title Sympathy for the Devil was supposed to be ironic.

I've always debated to myself if it was a pro-devil or an anti-devil song. The title is Sympathy for the Devil which would make it seem like a pro-devil song, but is it really? I guess he's just saying what the devil might be thinking.
I don't think it's pro or anti anything. It's just a fun song about a mythological character.
