"Hells Bells" is the first track of Australian hard rock band AC/DC's first album without Bon Scott, Back in Black. "Hells Bells" is the second single from Back in Black, released in the fall of 1980. The song also appears on Who Made Who, AC/DC's 1986 soundtrack to the Stephen King movie Maximum Overdrive and on both versions of 1992's AC/DC Live.
The song begins with a bell slowly tolling 4 times, after which Angus Young starts playing the song's main riff. Malcolm Young then joins in, followed by Phil Rudd on drums and Cliff Williams on bass.
The bell used in the song was a 2,000-pound cast bronze bell made by John Taylor Bellfounders in Loughborough, and is a replica of the Denison Bell. The AC/DC logo and "Hells Bell" are engraved on the bell. The band first attempted to record the Denison Bell at the Carillon Tower and War Museum in Leicestershire, England for the song, but this proved insufficient due to the disruption of pigeons nesting in the bell tower.
