Meaning: A journey (or ride) characterized by the irresponsibility of the hillbilly lifestyle, ending in death.
The band 'Hillbilly Deathride' played hundreds of shows between 2004 and 2007, developing a substantial following in southern WV and eventually recording an as yet unreleased album, but appearing occasionally at special events.
The band is known for covering obscure songs in a 'screaming metal' format and playing inebriated to intimate crowds long past closing time.
Billy Bob's life was a Hillbilly Deathride since he started using drugs and eventually died.
