What does the term "Pigeons from Hell" refer to?

I know that it is a book By Robert E. Howard and part of the lyrics to "Back on the Chain Gang" by The Pretenders, but what does it mean?

    "Pigeons from Hell" is a short story by Robert E. Howard, first published by Weird Tales in 1938. In 1983, Stephen King, in Danse Macabre, called Pigeons from Hell "One of the finest horror stories of our century."

    Pigeons from Hell is a Southern Gothic tale of an abandoned house, where pigeons gather after dark.

    Presumably the lyrics in that song by The Pretenders refer to the book, which is about an abandoned house, where spooky pigeons go in the night.

    The whole issue of racism is nonsense. Yanks - Americans, Limeys - Brits. Taffy - Welsh, Jock - Scots, Aussie - Australians, Paddy - Irish. These are terms commonly used and no one takes offence. Some races however take offence at nicknames given to them and start throwing the race card around. Personally I think it's just a sign of insecurity.

    Pigeons are bad enough as it is, but if they were satan's minions, they now have the mind to do mayhem and harm
