According to the book The Emerging Generation, the average teenager consumes 6 hours a day of rock music! It is their most devoted companion. It's their teacher, preacher, and guiding light! It dictates every detail of their life — from what they wear . . . to what they believe! Dr. Alan Bloom, in the The Closing of the American Mind, writes:

"It is their passion; nothing else excites them as it does; they cannot take seriously anything alien to music." (The Closing of the American Mind, p.68)

Rock music is more than just music — IT'S THEIR LIFE!

I want to take you on a tour through today's rock music. And if think rock is still — "I Want to Hold Your Hand" — you're in for the shock of your life!

Homosexual rock star, 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)

And something dark and evil is slithering under the ROCK!


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" & "I � 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 admitts 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)

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."

So would Tommy Sullivan of New Jersey — AND TOMMY DID!

Tommy, your typical, all-American, fourteen-year-old, one Saturday night, slit his own mother's throat, and then gouged her eyes out. Tommy then slashed his wrists and cut his throat from ear-to-ear, with an intensity that nearly decapitated him. Mayor Fran Slayton said, "There's just something that's bothering me about this situation. It bothers me that a good kid like that can go in two weeks." Tommy's father said, all week his son had been singing a ROCK SONG, "about blood and killing your mother."

Dr. Paul King, medical director of the adolescent program at Charter Lakeside Hospital, in Memphis Tennessee, says more than 80 percent of his patients are there because of rock music. He says, "the lyrics become a philosophy of life, a RELIGION."

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!

Does this music effect young people?

A Slayer fan writes in Spin magazine (May 1989):
"I hate your God, Jesus Christ. SATAN IS MY LORD. I sacrifice animals for him. My god is Slayer. Its THE WORDS of their music I BELIEVE IN."

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!

The song "Stairway to Heaven" by the group Led Zeppelin is the most popular song in rock history. One line of the song, says, "you know sometimes words have TWO MEANINGS." They should know — the song is drenched in satanic backmasking! One part when played forward, says: "Yes, their are two paths you can go by, but in the long run there's still time to change the road you're on." But when played backwards, you clearly hear: "IT'S MY SWEET SATAN . . . Oh I will sing because I live with Satan." This is the number one song in rock history! Just a coincidence — not hardly! Jimmy Page of Led Zeppelin is a devout follower of satanist, Aliester Crowley. One of Crowley's satanic teachings, learn to cast unsuspecting spells on people by saying them backwards! Zeppelin's song "Houses of the Holy", they sing, "Let the music be YOUR MASTER/ Will you heed the master's call/ Oh, Satan . . ."

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 Eagles'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!"

Female rocker, Kat sings in the Simon-Says parody called, "Satan Says":

"Hi, boys and girls!
We're going to play a game called Satan says! . . .
We're going to do everything that Satan says, Right?
. . . Satan says, Follow me!
SATAN SAYS, GO TO HELL!"

The group Bow Wow Wow, in their song "Prince of Darkness", openly give an invitation to receive Satan, as they sing:

"So open the door and LET SATAN IN, The Prince of Darkness."

The group Sad Iron, proudly sing their praise to the devil:

"We all praise the devil
He is so fine
We all praise the devil
Till the day we'll die!"

The group W.A.S.P., who proudly admit W.A.S.P. stands for We Are Sex Perverts, sing in "Sleeping in the Fire":

"Taste the LOVE,
THE LUCIFER'S MAGIC
That makes you numb
You feel what it does and you're drunk on love
YOU'RE SLEEPING IN THE FIRE!"
During their concerts, WASP would throw hunks of raw meat out in the audience and young people in a demonic frenzy, would actually eat the raw meat like a wild animal! On the back of their album reads:
"The gods you worship are steel,
AT THE ALTAR OF ROCK AND ROLL YOU KNEEL."

Motley Crue sings in "Wild Side":

"I carry my crucifix, under my deathlist
Forward my mail to me in hell . . .
OUR FATHER, WHO AIN'T IN HEAVEN
Be thy name on the wild side."

The group Black Sabbath have actually given invitations during their concerts for young people to receive Satan. One of their albums, is truthfully titled, "We Sold Our Soul for Rock'n Roll". Their song N.I.B. (Nativity In Black) is one of the most openly satanic songs ever recorded. It is a love-song from Lucifer, in which Lucifer invites the listener to "please take my hand", the lyrics:

"Some people say MY LOVE cannot be true
Please believe me, MY LOVE, and I'll show you
I will give you those things you thought unreal . . .
YOUR LOVE FOR ME has just got to be real . . .
Look into my eyes, you will see who I am
MY NAME IS LUCIFER, PLEASE TAKE MY HAND!"

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" rhey 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 satanist, Richard Ramirez, known as the "Night Stalker", who terrorized California, claims AC/DC's song "Night Prowler" compelled him to murder and sacrifice at least 14 people to Satan!

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!"

The group Unleashed, in the song "Crush the Skull", blatantly sing of their hatred of Jesus Christ:

"I gaze into his glassy eyes
And pluck him by the beard
I uplift a broadaxe
And split open HIS WORM EATEN SKULL
Crush the skull — Sacrifice
Crush the skull — DIE CHRIST!"
Where did they get such disgusting lyrics? Straight out of the Satanic Bible — Book of Satan 1:10!

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 group Possessed, in the suicide song, "No Will To Live" sing: "Drink the blood from my chalice
Come to hell and my palace . . .
Take you to the evil land . . .
You can only live by death
WORSHIP SATAN WITH THE REST!"
In their song "Tribulation", they proclaim their love for Satan as they sing:

"IN LOVE WITH SATAN."

The song, "The Oath" by Mercyful Fate, is the actual oath a satanist takes during a Black Mass ritual! some of the lyrics:

"I DENY JESUS CHRIST, THE DECEIVER
And I abjure the Christian faith
Holding in contempt all of it's works . . .
In this world I swear to give my full allegiance, to it's lawful master
TO WORSHIP HIM, OUR LORD SATAN, AND NO OTHER!"

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!"
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!"

These are some of the most popular groups in the world! And these are not isolated cases! These are just a drop in the bucket! This is dangerous and serious satanic worship — and rock music is filled with it!

When you consider, the average young person ingests 6 hours a day of this

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 — 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 . . ."

These groups know perfectly well who they're serving and they are totally dedicated to their god! In Hit Parader magazine, Bruce Dickinson of Iron Maiden, says:

"We can play with CONVICTION every night, because we TOTALLY BELIEVE in the music we're performing."
Like Iron Maiden's, song "The Number of the Beast", in which they direct young people to take the Mark of the Beast:
"666 the Number of the Beast
666 THE ONE FOR YOU AND ME!"

The group Deicide, whose name means "death of God", sing of their devotion in the song "In Hell I Burn":

"In Hell I burn, no questions remain
In hell I burn for Satan."
Their song, "Oblivious To Evil" describes a satanic human sacrifice. It begins with an invitation to "join us&q a p:
"Join us . . .
Sacrifice of the unborn child
Enter the kingdom of darkness
Sodomized for the ritual . . .
Infernal majesty, take this dead offering."
Deicide Vocalist Glen Benton, displaying his complete devotion to Satan, has an upside down cross actually branded into his forehead!

The group Coven, sings in "Burn the Cross":

"Son of God repent your sins
And pledge your soul to hell
Pray that Satan will forgive
Once your God has failed . . .
YOUR GOD IS DEAD and now you die
SATAN RULES AT LAST!"
To show their burning hatred of Jesus Christ, and blaspheme His death on the cross, they sing "Christsycle":
"If you're looking for a Saviour
Then I've got the trick
Christsycle
SALVATION ON A STICK."

The popular group, Danzig in their song, "Snakes of Christ", declare their hatred for Jesus Christ, as they sing:

"SERPENT JESUS, SNAKES OF CHRIST
Gonna build you a world of lies."
Inside the album is Glenn Danzig, wearing the satanic upside-down cross, above him is proudly quoted, John 8:44, "Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do." One of their logos is a demon strangling Jesus Christ with blood gushing from His eyes! Johnny Cash, has included on his latest album — a song written by satanist Glenn Danzig! And Johnny Cash has the audacity to call himself a Christian!

Friend, the facts speak loud and clear! Satan is alive and well!

To think for one second, this music is accident or trivial, is ridiculous! From the attack on Jesus Christ, to glorification of hell and Satan — there is a evil and guiding hand! There is no logical or rational explanation for such lyrics — besides the obvious influence of Satan!

And one clear message is heard — over and over —
SATAN WANTS YOU TO BURN IN HELL!

Jesus says in John 14:6, "I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, BUT BY ME."

Friend, there is only ONE WAY out of hell —
THE LORD JESUS CHRIST!

Friend, as sure as you live and breathe — if you die without Jesus Christ — that instant, YOU WILL BE IN HELL!

in flames. . . (Luke 16:24) in torment . . . (Luke 16:24 ) for ever. . . (Matt. 25:41)

Friend, I want to ask you the most important question in your life:

Is there a time and place in your life, when you trusted in Jesus Christ, and Him alone, as your personal Savior?

Maybe you don't listen to rock music. You may be the best person in your neighborhood. You may even be a faithful church member.

But, the Bible is very clear.

Jesus Christ says in Matthew 12:30, "He that is not with me is AGAINST ME . . ."

When you say no to Jesus — you say yes to Satan! Yes, Satan, I'll see you in hell!

And friend, that's a very, very serious thing to do!

Jesus Christ loved you so much that He died on an old, rugged cross nearly 2,000 years ago — He did that for YOU!

And now, friend — the next move is YOURS.

Jesus or Satan. Heaven or Hell.
THE CHOICE IS YOURS
You can be saved this minute.

Pray this prayer and mean it with all your heart.

Lord Jesus, I know that I am a sinner, and unless you save me I am lost forever. I believe you died on the cross for me. I come to you now, the best way I know how, and ask you to save me. I now receive you as my Savior. In Jesus Christ Name. Amen.
