"They're Red Hot" is a song written and performed by Delta blues musician Robert Johnson.[1] The song was recorded on November 27, 1936, in an improvised studio in San Antonio, Texas, and released on a 78 rpm record by Vocalion Records and ARC Records.[1]

Music historian Ted Gioia describes "They're Red Hot" as:

[one] of his best dance numbers... evoking the pitches of street vendors, [a] look backward to the world of medicine shows and itinerant merchants... This is the most lighthearted interlude in all of Johnson's oeuvre, opening up a different perspective on this supposedly devil-haunted soul.[2]
