    Usually it is "all hell broke loose", meaning a big uproar.

    Do not try to make it passive.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Good advice at all times.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
