American Rock singer Meat Loaf described his 12th studio album Hell In a Handbasket to Billboard magazine as, "the most personal record I've ever made." He added: "It's about how I feel the world's gone to hell in a handbasket. It's really the first record that I've ever put out about how I feel about life and how I feel about what's going on at the moment." The LP was released September 30, 2011 in Australia, followed by a release in February and March 2012 worldwide.
This was released as the first physical and second digital single exclusively through iTunes Australia on August 26, 2011. It was penned by the Country music songwriter Dave Berg whose Country hits include "If You're Going Through Hell (Before the Devil Even Knows)" by Rodney Atkins and "Moments" by Emerson Drive.
The phrase "going to hell in a handbasket," meaning we're on a course for disaster, originated from an old English phrase "to go to heaven in a wheelbarrow." The term was a euphemistic way of saying 'going to hell' and its alternative forms of "going to hell in a handcart," or "handbasket" originated in the US around the time of the Civil War.
