“A highway to hell implies the existence of public transportation to heaven”

The Australian rock band AC/DC’s song “Highway to Hell,” from the 1979 album of the same name, popularized this term. A joke was posted on Twitter by Carlos Greaves on October 6, 2022:

“A highway to hell implies the existence of public transportation to heaven.”


Wikipedia: Highway to Hell (song)
“Highway to Hell” is a song by Australian rock band AC/DC. It is the opening track of their 1979 album Highway to Hell. It was initially released as a single in 1979.

The song was written by Angus Young, Malcolm Young and Bon Scott, with Angus Young credited for writing the guitar riff which became an instant classic. AC/DC had made several studio albums before and were constantly promoting them via a grueling tour schedule, referred to by Angus Young as being on a highway to hell, hence the name.
