The hardest hitting of the Southern bands at the time when, in 1978, Epic released Molly Hatchets self-titled debut album which reached multi-platinum status. The band established their reputation of working hard, playing tough and living fast through intense touring. During this time, they were on the road with Aerosmith, Bob Seger, The Rolling Stones and many more.
In 1979, Flirtin with Disaster: was released and skyrocketed the band into the stratosphere. Touring an average of 250 shows per year kept them busy. Flirtin with Disaster, also achieved multi-platinum status. Then lead singer, Danny Joe Brown took a break from the road and contacted Bobby Ingram. A longtime friend from their first band they formed called, Rum Creek also based in Jacksonville, Florida. During that time Brown and Ingram together with John Galvin on keyboards formed the Danny Joe Brown Band releasing a worldwide studio album produced by the legendary Glyn Johns (Rolling Stones, The Who, Eagles), in 1981 on Epic Records.
Molly Hatchet released Beatin The Odds (1980) and Take No Prisoners (1981) was released with singer Jimmy Farrar. Brown returned to record No Guts No Glory (1983) The Deed Is Done (1984) and Double Trouble Live (1985).

In 1996, Devils Canyon, the first studio album in 6 years was recorded in Hamburg, Germany on SPV / CBH Records with producers Kalle Trapp and Bobby Ingram the album was voted the number one rock record in Europe for 1996. Founding member Dave Hlubek rejoined the band in 2005 after a 20-year departure who recently died in 2017 from health complications.
