Before anyone gets the wrong impression, I wanted to be clear that I made this thread to show the different types of groups/individuals that seem to be "good" music, but when examined are anti-Christian or followers of satanist Aleister Crowley. It is in no way a knock on June or her "ROCK WITH JUNE" thread. Which I love BTW!!! IMO some of the videos on this website are reaching a little too far for a connection between rock music & satan. Please watch some of them and let me know what you think!!! They have many more of these type of videos on rock, rap, and even some movies!!! Enjoy!!

Easily the most ridiculous thing I have seen this year.

They assume that every song ever written is non-fiction, written in first person. In their view, more or less anyone who uses any biblical allegories in their songs is a conduit for satan.

Robert Johnson, a blues musician, writes a song about selling his soul to satan... and these people claim that this literally means that he sold his soul to the devil, or that he is an advocate for the devil. Sting owns some tarot cards, therefore he worships satan as well. The Grateful Dead wrote a song called "Friend of the Devil", where the protagonist borrows money from the devil, and goes on the run... and therefore they worship satan, too, as do all their listeners. Pink Floyd uses biblical allegories in a song that is anti-establishment and anti-society, so therefore they all worship satan, too.

The logic behind these claims are so perverse and morally wrong, all I can say is: I am so glad I'm no longer a Christian, and I don't have to listen to (or deal with) this sort of ignorant and superstitious fearmongering.

The rock genre is so varied that you'll find death metal bands "glorifying" Christ just to rebel against their contemporaries.
