Songfacts:
This song describes a trip to Devil Gate Drive, a fictional place where all the kids get their kicks. In a Songfacts interview with Suzi Quatro, she said: “It’s the place where you go when you’re a teenager, and your parents say, ‘Where are you going?’ ‘I’m going out.’ ‘Don’t you dare go to such-and-such.’
That’s ‘Devil Gate Drive,’ and that’s where you go. Of course, as soon as your parents say, ‘Don’t go,’ that’s where you go.”
