What Does 5-1-5-0 Mean?

Dierks Bentley has had huge success with the song ’5-1-5-0.’  But what does it really mean?  Bentley sat down with Taste of Country to explain it all,

“I had written this song on the beach one day and I said, ‘Let’s get 5150,’ and he was asking me what ’5150′ meant,” Bentley says in the clip. Rock fans know it as a Van Halen album and song from 1986, but the Arizona born singer explains that it’s also the police code for a criminally insane person.

5-1-5-0, somebody call the po-po / I’m going crazy / Thinkin’ about you baby,” Bentley can be heard singing in the video.

“We were laughing about it for a while, and one day we sat down and were like, ‘All right, let’s try to write it,’” he explains.”

Who knew?  I love learning how artists come up with songs and ideas!

The song is featured on Dierks Bentley’s album ‘Home.’
