"Hell Ain't A Bad Place To Be" as written by and Angus Young Malcolm Young....
Hey you, yeah you

Sometimes I think this woman is kinda hot
Sometimes I think this woman is sometimes not
Puts me down, fools me around
What's she doing to me?
Out for satisfaction, any piece of action
That ain't the way it should be
She needs love, smells out a man
She's gotta see
Pours my beer, licks my ear
Brings out the devil in me

Hell ain't a bad place to be

Spends my money, drinks my booze, stays out every night
And I got to thinking, hey, just a minute, something ain't right
Disillusions and confusion
Make me want to cry
All the same, you lead your games
Tellin' me your lies
Don't mind her playing a demon
As long as it's with me
If this is hell then you could say
It's heavenly

Hell ain't a bad place to be

Late at night turns down the lights
Closes up on me
Opens my heart, tears it apart
Brings out the devil in me

Hell ain't no bad place to be

    General Commentall of you dont understand what ac/dc is all about. over half the song talk about getting laid, the rest talk about rock and roll and have a good time free of all the bullshit that exists today. this song is just another one talking about sex, similar to "touch too much" or "whole lotta rosie" where the sex is lead by the girl (who by the way seems always to be pretty good at what she does in bed)

    General Commentno, unless they have a song with a similar name.
    anyway, Bon is singing about a wild woman who is corrupting him, and he is realizing that it isn't so bad.

    General CommentThis song has the G-D chord progression as it's riff. t;s like the most common progression in AC/DC songs. Just thought you'd wanna know.

    General CommentThis song is about Bon getting tempted by a woman, who's pushing him into doing bad things which symbolizes hell and he's saying that even though its wrong, hell (or being with her) isn't as bad as it seems.

    General CommentI agree with ledskynyrd, hell is a very bad place to be, but this song rocks regardless. I agree with Dukeface on the meaning of the song

    General CommentSince when has AC/DC been worried about hell being bad or not? About half their songs are about hell...well, not really, but whatever. I like this song a lot, though. It's really catchy. I agree it's about a woman who's bringing him down, but he doesn't care because he likes it.

    General CommentIt's not about hell, other than perhaps he might go there for doing what he is doing. It's just about that even the relationship seems like hell, he still enjoys it. There is a country song by Barbara Mandrell with a similar concept. The "If Loving You Is Wrong I Don't Want To Be Right", is about being in love with a married man. Both of these relationships may not be the right thing to do, but they don't seem to care.
