    Default hell'n'hades/hell of hades

    Hi! I've seen this word-combination several times especially in some lyrics. Does it mean christian "hell" or "hades" from Greek myphology? Thanks ahead!

    They both can be used for the hot place. Hades is the borrowed Greek name for it.

    Guys, I mean cases when these two words are used at the same time and connected with "of" or "and". Is it usually correct?

    It is not a standard term It is either Hell or Hades. If you have seen it in lyrics [of pop songs] I would not surprise me - either the writer thinks it gives emphasis to the concept of hell, or they want a particular rhythm in their verse.
