Track Description
Available in:
"Holy Diver" is a song by American heavy metal band Dio. It was released in August 1983 as the lead single from the band's debut album of the same name. Although it only reached number 40 on the Mainstream Rock chart at that time, it is one of Dio's most popular songs today.

Reception
Following the September 11 attacks, the song was placed on the list of post-9/11 inappropriate titles distributed by Clear Channel.

In 2009, "Holy Diver" placed 43rd on VH1's Top 100 Hard Rock Songs.

Content
Dio said the lyrics are about a Christ figure on another planet who sacrifices himself to redeem his people. When the people learn that he intends to leave them to save people on other planets, they selfishly ask him to stay.

"What does Ronnie mean when he writes stuff like 'Holy Diver'?" exclaimed Kiss bassist Gene Simmons. "What is it, a rabbi diving off a cliff? A rabbi with swimming trunks?!"
