Song title: Highway to H*ll
This is the perfect song for Reverend Hale because it talks about how Reverend Hale thinks he's doing good but in truth he's sending innocent people to death. By doing what he thinks is right, makes him think he's helping god but in reality he's doing the opposite of god wants and going the wrong path.
