    After lead singer Bon Scott drank himself to death, this was the first song sung by replacement Brian Johnson. This song is a tribute to Bon Scott.

    The bell used in this song is 2,000 pound cast bronze bell made by John Taylor Bellfounders of Loughborough and tuned to A.

    “I don’t believe in God or Heaven or Hell. But something happened. We had these little rooms like cells with a bed and a toilet, no TVs. I had this big sheet of paper and I had to write some words. I was going, ‘oh fuck.’ and I’ll never forget, I just went (scribbles frantically as if his hand is possessed). I started writing and never stopped. And that was it, hells Bells. I had a bottle of whisky and I went (generous gulps). I kept the light on all night, man.”—Brian Johnson

    Brian Johnson describes the role the song played in the rescue of Black Hawk Down pilot Michael Durant, “That was the best one. He was shoved in prison, his back was broken. They were kicking him, shooting bullets into him and he was terrified. His pals knew that AC/DC was his favorite band so they hooked up a speaker to the skid of one of the Black Hawks and they were playing Hells Bells over the rooftops. He took his shirt off and- cos his legs were broken- he crawled up to the windows and waved his shirt. That’s how they got him out. Ain’t that amazing!”
