Forget the commonly held belief that the only good song ever created with the title “Highway To Hell” belongs to a group of aged, Scot-Australian rockers who wail with knee-high knickers. The release of Mexicans With Guns’ “Highway To Hell” spits on this notion as the San Antonio producer brings along The Baby-Faced Killer and Bun B to provide lyrical therapy for the track’s Ridin’ Dirty 7″ Mix. The Pulled Over By The Cops members malevolently sit shotgun on this raucous ride as Gibbs delivers his typical devilish bars and Bun remains hellishly cool as ever. Organs blare over top of whirring bass and the Spanish drums eerily lets the track’s conclusion float down the River Styx.
If this track satiates your more evil tendencies, Stones Throw is providing 500 limited-edition wax copies on red vinyl.[audio:http://www.archive.org/download/MexicansWithGunsFeat.FreddieGibbsBunB-highwayToHell/MexicansWithGuns-RidinDirty.mp3%5D
