Hank Williams Jr.‘s “All My Rowdy Friends (Have Settled Down)” climbed to Number One on the Billboard country chart on this day back in 1981.

It was released in September 1981 as the first single from the album The Pressure Is On. The song was Williams Jr.’s fifth number one on the country chart. The single stayed at number one for one week and spent a total of ten weeks on the country chart.

The phrase “all my rowdy friends” would later become a catch phrase of sorts for Williams, who would use the line in 1984 for “All My Rowdy Friends Are Coming Over Tonight,” in 1987 for “Born to Boogie” and “All My Rowdy Friends Are Here on Monday Night,” and in 2011 for “Keep the Change.”
