Highway to Hell - AC/DC - Songonomy - Discover a song everyday

The song and album's title supposedly came after a reporter asked band members if they could describe what life was like being constantly on tour.
Angus replied that it was "a fucking highway to hell".
He stated in the magazine Guitar World that when you are out on the road on a bus sleeping with a guy's smelly sock in your face, it's like you're on the highway to hell.
However, rumours circulated that the band members were Satanists and the cover of the album named after the song, depicting Angus with devil horns and tail, added fuel to the fire.
The band has denied having anything to do with Satanism, with Malcolm Young commenting: "my mum would kill me for that!"
