Lynyrd Skynyrd, “That Smell”
Southern rockers Lynyrd Skynyrd were notorious for their hard-partying ways and this song, from their 1977 album Street Survivors, is about the fateful night when their excess went too far. Lead singer Ronnie Van Zant and guitarist Allen Collins wrote the tune about the evening when Skynyrd guitarist Gary Rossington drunkenly crashed his car into a tree and then a house, garnering injuries so severe that the band had to postpone their 1977 tour. Afterwards, Van Zant and Collins allegedly ordered Rossington to clean up his act and then banned drugs and alcohol from the dressing rooms. But no amount of self-policing could save them and the song’s references to death (“Angel of darkness is upon you, stuck a needle in your arm”) proved to be creepily prescient in light of the fact that Van Zant, guitarist Steve Gaines and backup singer Cassie Gaines were all killed in a plane crash just a few days after their tour started. Though the rest of the band has continued to tour with new members in the decades since then, Rossington remains plagued by issues with alcohol.
