Hell Paso (El Paso nickname)

"Hell Paso” is an unflattering nickname for El Paso. The nickname became popular in the 1990s, but citations of it can be found before World War I.

I lived in Hell Paso for the next two years, so I didn’t see another show until Irvine ‘86 run.

Hell Paso is the first EP by At the Drive-In, released in 1994 on Western Breed Records. It easily is the most sought-after At The Drive-In piece of vinyl, and in the early 2000s was seen to be s old for nearly $100 on eBay - though it is now generally less expensive.
