Jim Heath AKA The Reverend Horton Heat started the trio in Dallas, Texas back in 1985. His stage name came from a combination of people calling him the reverend when he played the guitar, Johnny Horton (Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Rockabilly singer), and his own last name Heath. While touring last year The Reverend Horton Heat's bus caught on fire almost killing the band. After escaping the blazing inferno, the trio did a show that same night demonstrates their passion for performing.

After the legendary punk rocker left the stage, The Reverend Horton Heat played Let Me Teach You How to Eat (I don't think it's about food) and Motorhead's Ace of Spades. The fast paced songs inspired the formation of a mosh pit. The slam dancing paused for a moment during Johnny Cash's Folsom Prison Blues. But the moshing continued when Jello Biafra came back to sing Johnny Paycheck's Take This Job and Shove It and Elvis Presley's Viva Las Vegas.
