David Bowie in Rolling Stone magazine (Feb. 12, 1976), stunned the music world, when he stated:
“Rock has always been THE DEVIL’S MUSIC . . . I believe rock and roll is dangerous . . . I feel we’re only heralding SOMETHING EVEN DARKER THAN OURSELVES.”(Rolling Stone, Feb. 12, 1976)
In the song “The Conjuring” by Megadeth, the REAL mission of rock is clearly heard:
“I AM THE DEVIL’S ADVOCATE A SALESMAN, if you will . . .
Come join me in my INFERNAL DEPTHS . . .
I’ve got your soul!” At the end of the song they chant “OBEY”!
Rocker Frank Zappa (who discovered the awful truth December 4, 1993 the second he died) proudly boasted:
“I’m the devil’s advocate. We have our own worshippers who are called ‘groupies.’ Girls will give their bodies to musicians as you would give a sacrifice to a god.” (Peters Brothers, What About Christian Rock, p. 17)
The super group, Metallica, in the song “Jump In the Fire“, commands young people to jump into hell:
“Follow me now my child . . .
DO JUST AS I SAY . . .
Jump by your will or be taken by force I’ll get you either way . . .
So reach down grab my hand walk with me through the land
COME HOME WHERE YOU BELONG
So come on JUMP IN THE FIRE.”
In the cover song, “The Prince“, Metallica openly sing:
“Angel from below . . .
I WISH TO SELL MY SOUL . . .
DEVIL TAKE MY SOUL
with diamonds you repay I don’t care for heaven
so don’t you look for me to cry
AND I WILL BURN IN HELL from the day I die.”
Rock star, Marilyn Manson, proudly boasts:
“Hopefully, I’ll be remembered as the person who brought an end to Christianity.” (Spin, August 1996, p. 34)
Manson, an ordained “reverend” in the Church of Satan, mutilates himself on stage (1 Kings 18:28), rips-up the Holy Bible, and spews “blasphemies” against the Lord Jesus Christ. Manson’s T-Shirts declare,
“KILL YOUR PARENTS” and “I LOVE SATAN”.
Manson claims his album Antichrist Superstar came via “supernatural-inspiration”:
“I heard this album as finished, I heard it in dreams . . . It was like the revelations of John the Baptist or something.” (huH, Oct. 1996, p.34)
Manson’s “hope” for Antichrist Superstar,:
“I think every time people listen to this new album maybe God will be destroyed in their heads. . .” (huH, Oct. 1996, p.37)
Manson’s “blasphemy” is not just an act. Manson readily admits there’s more to the show than meets the eye:
“I don’t know if anyone has really understood what we’re trying to do. This isn’t just about shock value . . . that’s just there to lure the people in. Once we’ve got em we can give em our MESSAGE.” (Hit Parader, Oct. 1996, p.28)
Manson admits his childhood longing for Satan:
“My mom used to tell me when I was a kid, If you curse at nighttime, the devil’s going to come to you when you’re sleeping. I used to get excited because I really wanted it to happen . . . I wanted it. I wanted it more than anything . . .”(Rolling Stone, January, 23, 1997 p.52)
Carlos Santana admits to being controlled by demons, and having NO concern for morality or God:
“The energy of devils and angels is the same energy; it’s how you use it. It’s fuel. There is a saying: If you scare all your devils away, the angels will go away with them. You know, the halo and the horns are the same thing. I mean it’s OK to be spiritually horny – that’s what creative genius is all about. Geniuses don’t have time to think about how it’s going to be received… they don’t have time to think whether people like it or not, is it morally right, will God like it?” (Carlos Santana, Rolling Stone, magazine, March 16, 2000, p. 87).“…you meditate and you got the candles, you got the incense and you’ve been chanting, and all of a sudden you hear this voice: ‘Write this down’ ” (Carlos Santana, Rolling Stone magazine, March 16, 2000, p. 41).
“Rock concerts are the churches of today.” (Guitarist Craig Chaquico of the rock group ‘Jefferson Starship.’)
“Get them while they’re young and bend their minds.” (Spencer Dryden of the rock group ‘Jefferson Starship.’)
Twisted Sister sings, “Burn in Hell”:
“Welcome to the abandoned land
COME ON IN CHILD, TAKE MY HAND
Here there’s no work or play Only one bill to pay
There’s just five words to say As you go down, down, down
YOU’RE GONNA BURN IN HELL!”
Bon Jovi sings in “Homebound Train“:
“When I was just a boy
THE DEVIL TOOK MY HAND
Took me from my home
He made me a man . . .
I’m going DOWN, DOWN, DOWN, DOWN, DOWN
On the homebound train.”
In Smash Hits magazine, Bon Jovi says: “. . . I’d kill my mother for rock and roll. I WOULD SELL MY SOUL.”
One of the most popular groups in rock history is Slayer. Slayer sing of themselves, as:
“Warriors from the gates of hell . . .
In lord Satan we trust.”
Slayer’s albums sell in the millions! And song after song IS PRAISE TO SATAN! Their song “Hell Awaits” says:
“Jesus knows your soul cannot be saved
CRUCIFY THE SO CALLED LORD
He soon shall fall to me
Your souls are damned
Your God has fell to slave for me eternally Hell awaits.”
The beginning of their song “Hell Awaits” contains an obvious backwards message. When played forward, nothing but garbled noise is heard, but when played backwards you hear the real message “JOIN US, JOIN US, JOIN US” over and over!
The group Acheron, has an album titled, “The Rites of the Black Mass“. On the album Peter Gilmore, of the Church of Satan, actually reads the rites of a Black Mass, as the group Acheron, in hellish growls, sings such lyrics as:
“Glory to thee almighty Satan . . .
We praise thee, we bless thee,
WE ADORE THEE . . .
THOU ART LORD, THOU ALONE, OH MIGHTY SATAN.”
The group Manowar, sings in “The Bridge of Death”:
“Dark Lord, I summon thee
Demanding the sacred right to burn in hell . . .
Take My lustful soul Drink my blood as I drink yours . . .
LUCIFER IS KING PRAISE SATAN!”
The group Morbid Angel, sings in “Vengeance in Mine“:
“Mote it be Satan’s sword I have become . . .
I burn with hate
TO RID THE WORLD OF THE NAZARENE!”
And to commit the ultimate blasphemy they sing in the song “Blasphemy“:
“Chant the blasphemy Mockery of the Messiah
WE CURSE THE HOLY GHOST . . .
Blaspheme the Ghost
BLASPHEMY OF THE HOLY GHOST.”
Trey Azagthoh of Morbid Angel claims to be a REAL vampire, and while playing onstage he actually bites himself and then drinks his own blood!
One of the top songs of the 70’s was “Hotel California” by the Eagles. Most people have no idea the song refers to the Church of Satan, which happens to be located in a converted HOTEL on CALIFORNIA street! On the inside of the album cover, looking down on the festivities, is Anton LaVey, the founder of the Church of Satan and author of the Satanic Bible! People say, the Eagles aren’t serious, they’re just selling records. That’s what you think! The Eagles manager, Larry Salter, admitted in the Waco Tribune-Herald, (Feb. 28, 1982) that the Eagles were involved with the Church of Satan! Not surprisingly, one of the Eagle’s songs is titled “Have A Good Day in Hell.”
The group Kiss leaped on stage as Rock ‘n Roll demons…puking blood, breathing fire and screaming…”God of rock ‘n roll, we’ll steal your virgin soul.” In their song “God of Thunder“, they command young people to kneel before Satan:
“I’m lord of the wasteland, a modern day man of steel
I gather darkness to please me and I COMMAND YOU TO KNEEL
Before, The God of thunder, the god of rock ‘n roll
I’LL STEAL YOUR VIRGIN SOUL!”
One of the most popular groups in rock is AC/DC. In the song, “Hells Bells“, they sing:
“I got my bell
I’m gonna take you to hell
I’m gonna get Ya SATAN GET YA”
Their song “Highway to Hell” they sing:
“Ain’t nothing I would rather do
GOIN’ DOWN, PARTY TIME
My friends are gonna be there too . . .
Hey Satan, paid my dues . . .
I’m on the way to the promised land
I’m on the HIGHWAY TO HELL.”
The group Suicidal Tendencies, whose songs glorify suicide and have been linked to teen suicides, reveal a frightening truth in the song “Possessed“:
“I’M A PRISONER OF A DEMON . . .
It stays with me wherever I go
I can’t break away from its hold
This must be my punishment FOR SELLING MY SOUL!”
Pink Floyd sings, in the song “Sheep“,
“The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want . . .
With bright knives he RELEASETH MY SOUL
He maketh me to hang on hooks in high places . . .
For lo, he hath great power and GREAT HUNGER.”
Their song, “Lucifer Sam”, they sing: “LUCIFER Sam . . . Always sitting by your side Always by your side.”
The song “Sympathy for the Devil” by the Rolling Stones, is the official anthem for the Church of Satan. In it, Lucifer speaks in the first person and asks sympathy for all who meet him. Lead singer, Mick Jagger claims that Anton LaVey, the founder of the Church of Satan and author of the Satanic Bible, help inspire their music! Their album titled, “Their Satanic Majesties Request“, leaves no doubt to their allegiance!
The group Venom reveal the real reason for their music, as they sing:
“We’re not here to entertain you . . .
I PREACH THE WAYS OF SATAN
Answer to his calls!”
In their song “Possessed“, they sing:
“I am possessed by all that is evil
The death of your God, I demand . . .
AND SIT AT LORD SATAN’S LEFT HAND!”
What do you think this music is doing?
According to the book, Satanism in America, which is endorsed by the National Criminal Justice Task Force on Occult Related Ritualistic Crimes, hard-core Satanism is “the fastest-growing subculture among America’s TEENS.”
Studies taken by the Georgia Police Academy revealed that 90% of those involved in Satanism are TEENAGERS!
Television personality, Geraldo Rivera, who explored the terrifying rise of Satanism said, “It exists AND IT’S FLOURISHING. IT IS TEENAGERS who are most likely to fall under the spell of Satanism.”
How serious are they?
At the 1992 MTV Awards, the group Red Hot Chili Peppers, upon receiving their award and giving thanks, said:
“FIRST OF ALL we want to thank Satan . . .“
