Skull and Bonesis societyatYale University,New Haven, Connecticut. It is the oldest senior class landed society at Yale. The theRussell Trust Association, owns the society's real estate and oversees the organization. The society is known informally as "Bones", and members are known as style="line-height: 1.5em; list-style-type: none; margin: 0.3em 0px; padding: 0px; list-style-image: none;">

Skull and Bones was founded in 1832 after a dispute between Yale debating societiesLinonia,Brothers in Unity, and theCalliopean Societyover that season'sPhi Beta Kappaawards. It was co-founded byWilliam Huntington RussellandAlphonso Taftas "the Order of the Scull and Bones".
The society's assets are managed by the society's alumni organization, theRussell Trust Association, incorporated in 1856 and named after the Bones co-founder.The association was founded by Russell andDaniel Coit Gilman, a Skull and Bones member, and later president of theUniversity of California, first president ofJohns Hopkins University, and the founding president of theCarnegie Institution.
The first extended description of Skull and Bones, published in 1871 by Lyman Bagg in his bookFour Years at Yale, noted that "the mystery now attending its existence forms the one great enigma which college gossip never tires of discussing."Brooks Mather Kelley attributed the interest in Yale senior societies to the fact that underclassmen members of thenfreshman,sophomore, and junior class societies returned to campus the following years and could share information about society rituals, while graduating seniors were, with their knowledge of such, at least a step removed from campus life.
Skull and Bones selects new members every spring as part of Yale University's "Tap Day", and has done so since 1879. Since the society's inclusion of women in the early 1990s, Skull and Bones selects fifteen men and women of the junior class to join the society. Skull and Bones "taps" those that it views as campus leaders and other notable figures for its membership.
The Tomb[edit source|editbeta]Exterior view of Skull and Bones, 64 High Street,New Haven, early 20th century
The Skull & Bones Hall is otherwise known as the "Tomb".
The building was built in three phases: the first wing was built in 1856, the second wing[clarification needed]in 1903, and were added to the rear garden in 1912. The front and side facades are ofPortland brownstonein anEgypto-Doric style.The 1912 tower additions created a small enclosed courtyard in the rear of the building, designed by Evarts Tracy and Edgerton Swartwout ofTracy and Swartwout, New York.Evarts was not a Bonesman, but his paternal grandmother Martha Sherman Evarts and maternal grandmother Mary Evarts were the sisters ofWilliam Maxwell Evarts, an 1837 Bonesman.
The architectural attribution of the original hall is in dispute.The architect was possiblyAlexander Jackson Davis(1803–1892) orHenry Austin(1804–1891). Architectural historian Patrick Pinnell includes an in-depth discussion of the dispute over the identity of the original architect in his 1999 Yale campus history. Pinnell speculates that the re-use of the Davis towers in 1911 suggests Davis's role in the original building, and, conversely, Austin was responsible for the architecturally similarbrownstoneEgyptian RevivalGrove Street Cemeterygates built in 1845. Pinnell also discusses the "Tomb's" aesthetic place in relation to its neighbors, including theYale University Art Gallery.[clarification needed]In the late 1990s, New Hampshire landscape architects Saucier & Flynn designed thewrought ironfence that currently surrounds a portion of the complex.
The society owns and managesDeer Island, an island retreat in theSt. Lawrence River.Alexandra Robbins, author of a book on Yale secret societies, wrote:
The forty-acre retreat is intended to give Bonesmen an opportunity to "get together and rekindle old friendships." A century ago the island sported tennis courts and its softball fields were surrounded by rhubarb plants and gooseberry bushes.Catboatswaited on the lake. Stewards catered elegant meals. But although each new Skull and Bones member still visits Deer Island, the place leaves something to be desired. "Now it is just a bunch of burned-out stone buildings," a patriarch sighs. "It's basically ruins." Another Bonesman says that to call the island "rustic" would be to glorify it. "It's a dump, but it's beautiful."—Alexandra Robbins

Skull and Bones's membership developed a reputation in association with the "Power Elite".Regarding the qualifications for membership,Lanny Daviswrote in the 1968 Yale yearbook:
If the society had a good year, this is what the "ideal" group will consist of: a football captain; a Chairman of theYale Daily News; a conspicuousradical; aWhiffenpoof; a swimming captain; a notorious drunk with a 94 average; a film-maker; a political columnist; a religious group leader; a Chairman of the Lit; a foreigner; a ladies' man with two motorcycles; an ex-service man; a negro, if there are enough to go around; a guy nobody else in the group had heard of, ever...—Lanny Davis, quoted byAlexandra RobbinsBeer Drinkers & Hell RaisersFrom Wikipedia, the free encyclopediaThis article covers the ZZ Top song.

"Beer Drinkers & Hell Raisers" is a song Top, originally released on their 1973 albumTres Hombres.
ZZ Top first recorded their song in 1973, and was a minor radio hit, despite not being released as a single. It is the only song on theTres Hombresalbum to featurelead vocalsbybassistDusty Hill, who trades off every line withguitaristBilly Gibbons. Such a vocal style was repeated on certain songs on their later albums, such as "Heard it on the X", fromFandango!, "Pan Am Highway Blues" and "Avalon Hideaway", fromTejas, and "Don't Tease Me", fromEl Loco.
It became a frequent song in the band's live set around the time of its release, and has been played sparingly over the years. It was, however featured on the compilationsThe Best of ZZ Top,Chrome, Smoke & BBQ, andRancho Texicano.
