7/24/2012 (Courtesy TheBoot.com) — Good Morning! “5-1-5-0” has hit No. 1, making for Dierks Bentley‘s tenth career chart-topper. The rowdy song occupies both the Billboard and Mediabase country singles penthouses this week.

Dierks, who co-wrote the tune with brothers Brett and Jim Beavers, explains the inspiration for the lyrics came from a childhood memory. “I was at a birthday party and this kid had an electric guitar. We went back to his room and listened to Van Halen and I dropped everything, and that’s all I listened to for a while,” he recalls to The Boot. “They had an album titled 5-1-5-0, which featured them on the cover in straight jackets. I found out that it was the police code for a crazy person.”
