Usually occurring on a Friday night after a long work week, this term refers to driving around with your friends doing absolutely nothing because you aren't old enough to get into bars and there's nothing better to do 'round these parts. This activity is most common among teens from rural communities and small towns who mislabel it as "raising hell" to make their lives sound less dull and more badass. Though "raising hell" is often more boring than badass, it is sometimes known to include SERIOUS badass activities, such as loitering, underage drinking, running red lights, and even swerving a couple feet into a cornfield just to be an asshole!
In the big city, it's called "driving around aimlessly" and it makes you boring. In the country, it's called "raising hell" and it makes you BADASS.

Popularized by East Coast hood rats, specifically from West Virginia, the saying "raise Hell" is usually accompanied by a raising and shaking of the Hawaiian Shaka sign

The slogan is used, and usually yelled, when a rule is broken or other such chaos is caused.

A variation of "raise Hell" exists where the "se" is removed from "raise" and the slogan becomes "rai Hell!"
"Aye, Daniel, we're about to po up on the West!"
"Fuck yeah! Raise Hell!"
