Are you trying to loosen in the correct direction? It is not uncommon for these to be left hand rather than right hand bolts.

this will destroy the bolt but my guess is that you wont use it again. first drill out the bolt and use ez-outs to extract the bolt. ez-outs are like drill bits with reverse threads I have a set and love them.
