The devil's in my car! Or in the B-52's car, at least, and they're burning up the road on the Freeway to Hell. Is that anywhere near the Highway to Hell? Maybe it's a loop route.

This song comes from the B-52's second album, Wild Planet, released in 1980 when the band was fresh out of Athens, Georgia and just starting their ascent to the top of the New Wave oddball party band heap. Their trademark sound was already well-formed, though, and can be heard here in Fred and the girls' call and response vocals, the song's dancey beat, and its campy lyrics. I've got devil juice in my CARburater! 

Wait... devil juice???
