This was the Southern Rock band's first major hit, and it was fairly typical of their sound. The song was written by band members Steve Cash and John Dillon and released on their first album. Ozark Mountain Daredevils were from Springfield, Missouri, and sported long hair and a hell-raising attitude, which is the theme of this song: "If you wanna get to heaven, you've got to raise a little hell."
The biggest hit for the band was 1975's "Jackie Blue," which was not like their other releases.
