THE EFFECTS OF ROCK MUSIC
A 15 year old Tampa Bay boy filled his mouth with lighter fluid &
blew it out of his mouth across a torch, like Gene Simmons of KISS, &
the flame came back and burned over 35% of his upper body. Rock music
has been around for quite a while. Everybody listens to it at least
once in their life. A lot of people don't see anything wrong with it
but rock music can and does affect the minds and lives of teenagers.
The teenagers of today have a choice of whether they want to
listen to rock music or not, but rock music is everywhere. The
average teenager listens to over six hours of rock music a day. This
means that when their friends see them, they are more than likely
going to be listening to rock music. There is even rock music in the
schools. It is true that a band hall is a place for music, but not
rock music played throughout the lunch shifts.
Admittedly, rock music is a very good business as far as money is
concerned. Rock musicians make millions of dollars every year, but
what are they going to spend that much money on? After they buy all
the houses and cars that they want, most of them buy and use drugs.
The Rolling Stones, for instance, is into turning children onto heroin
and cocaine. Keith Richards, of The Rolling Stones, had a drug habit
that ran up to ten thousand dollars a day.
Rock music can also hurt a teenager physically. The volume of the
music can hurt the ears of anyone who listens to it at a loud volume.
Ted Nugent is deaf in one ear because of the volume of the music he
has been playing. The Concord SST has been prohibited from taking off
& landing in many cities because it takes off and lands at one
hundred and forty db's of sound. The Rolling Stones have been
recorded as the world's loudest concert at one hundred and seventy
six db's of sound.
Most of the rock and roll superstars do use drugs. A person could
walk into a concert and literally gag on the smoke that is in the air
from all the marijuana that is being smoked. Grace Slick, formerly of
Jefferson Starship, used alcohol, marijuana, cocaine & LSD when she
played her music. She named her son God and tried to get into the
White House to spike the tea with LSD.
Linda Ronstadt has had her nose cauterized twice for snorting
cocaine. This is a great shock to her fans because she is thought of
as 'sweet and innocent.' Johnny Barnnetti shoveled fake cocaine to
the crowd while singing about it. These are just a few examples, but
there are thousands more that use and abuse drugs.
Some rock musicians even glorify drugs in their songs as the
Beatles did in their song, 'Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds.' They are
disguising it pretty well but it is plain to see that they are
glorifying the drug LSD.
A lot of rock musicians put evil things into their lyrics.
Some musicians are in the occult & worship Satan himself.The Bible
tells people to turn away from that which is evil and to have nothing
to do with it.
Some of the colleges and universities actually have classes about
The Bible also says that those who use witchcraft or a person who
is a witch will be driven away from the people by the Lord. A
spokesman from a popular record label says that witchcraft is very
popular and it makes the albums sell. Some acid rock artists even go
to their occult priests and tell them to make one demon spirit go onto
every record that comes off of the master record. Then, every time
the needle touches the record, the demon will be released.
A lot of the groups are evil themselves. Bob Ezrin, the producer
of KISS, describes the group as 'symbols of unfettered evil and
sensuality.' Gene Simmons, the lead singer of the group, has stated
that he has always wanted to be God. KISS has a comic book out that
is the best selling comic books ever. They had blood samples taken
and put the blood on the printing plates so they could say the comic
book was printed in the blood of KISS. Gene Simmons has often
wondered what human flesh tastes like.
Jimmy Page, from the group Led Zeppelin, is fascinated with black
magic. Led Zeppelin's logo on their albums looks like Lucifer falling
Stevie Nicks, of Fleetwood Mac, is into the occult and she believes
in spirits. She believes in reincarnation, she wants to talk to a
ghost, and she wants to build her own pyramid and live in a witch
house. She usually wears witches clothes when she is on stage.
The rock group Queen is mostly made up of bisexuals, which their
name suggests. In one of their more popular songs they sing the
blasphemous chorus 'All going down to see the Lord Jesus!'
This further proves the satanic world of this group. Also, lead
singer Freddie Murcury says, 'On stage, I am a devil.'
The group Styx does not really appear to be satanic, but their name
refers to the first river of the shadow of the dead to come to in the
underworld in Greek Mythology.
The lyrics are what really affect the minds of teenagers because
most people don't know very much about the groups they listen to.
Here are some lyrics from one of KISS's songs called 'God of Thunder':
'I was raised by demons. Trained to reign as Thor. God of Thunder,
and rock and roll... The spell you're under will slowly rob you of
your virgin soul.' To say they were raised by demons is enough, but
they say they will rob you of your virgin soul.
A song by Rick Derringer says, 'Take me to the bottom. Show me
where to sell my soul. A promise sealed in blood... It doesn't feel
so wrong, that sweet, sweet evil. 'The name of the song is 'Sweet
Evil' and proves that they are evil if they think it is sweet.
Another group that shows they are evil is AC/DC. One of their most
popular songs is entitled, 'Hell's Bells.' Some of the lyrics are,
'If God is on the left, I'm on the right. If you're into evil, you're
a friend of mine.'
The words of the song speak for themselves.
A group called Blue Oyster Cult has a song called, 'Divine Wind,'
which is a chant of ingredients for a potion which means they are into
witchcraft. Some of the words are,
'Blood of bat; Tail of newt; Wing of metal; Bone of steel; Vial of
health; Flask of pain; Staff of life of poison rain; If he really
thinks we're evil, then let's send him to Hell'
Sex is more predominant than anything else in the lyrics and the
groups themselves. Gene Simmons says that KISS is concerned with sex
and very little else. Wendy O. Williams, lead singer of the
Plasmatics, usually appears topless at some point in her concerts.
Before she uses her trusty sledgehammer to destroy speakers and
amplifiers, she uses it to masterbate in public and has been arrested
in two major cities for doing so. She also has orgasms when she sings
her songs, especially during one of her songs called, 'Butcher Baby.'
David Lee Roth, lead singer for Van Halen, says he lives out
one-hundred percent of his fantasies with pretty women that he meets
on the road. Elton John says he can have sex with either male or
female and thinks that people should be free with it. Alice Cooper
makes love with a boa constrictor and a mannequin during some of his
Daryl Hall, of Hall and Oates, says the idea of having sex with
another man doesn't turn him off. The manager of Village People is
trying to write songs that will make the gay people more
acceptable. Rod Stewart has always wanted to be attractive to men
because that's half the people that buy his records. Rob Halford has
been known to 'drop his leather drawers mid-concert' The reason for
all the sex on stage is because it makes the records sell a lot
Today's rock musicians put sex into their songs mainly to put sex
into the minds of the teenager who listen to it. Just the titles of
some of AC/DC's songs are bad enough, like 'Big Balls, Love at First
Feel, and Let me put my Love into You.' Another song by AC/DC is
'Givin the Dog a Bone,' which goes like this:
'...Goin' down to her knees, down, down to ninety degrees.. I'm just
giving the dog a bone.'
This is obviously talking about a man having oral sex with a woman.
Ted Nugent's song called, 'Wango Tango' says 'When I need some
lubrication, baby, prop down, get a butt propped up. Now you're in the
right position, baby'. He talks about sadomasochism in his song,
'Violent Love.' Ted Nugent is not satisfied with that. He opened a
concert with, 'Wang Dang Sweet poontang,' which says, 'Oh Madine,
you're a teenage queen, so d--- clean, especially down in between.'
Pink Floyd says he needs a dirty woman and a dirty girl to make him
feel like a man. The Cars say they want to melt inside of you. Dr.
Hook gets very vulgar when he says, 'Sometimes I dream of chicks,
sometimes I dream of animals, sometimes I dream of boys.' This is
from a song called, 'Get My Rocks Off.' And finally, Alice Cooper
describes having sex with a dead person in his song, 'Cold Ethyl.'
Some people have tried to stop rock music from getting too
powerful, but they all have failed. James Watt, formerly the
Secretary of the Interior, tried to stop the Beach Boys from playing
at the 1983 Fourth of July Celebration, but President and Mrs. Reagan
told him that they were friends of theirs and that their kids grew up
with them. After this, Watt decided to change his mind. Many more
attempts have been made. Some have come closer than others but they
still can't stop rock music from being heard. Rock music can be heard
everywhere. It's hurting teenagers every time they listen to it, but
rock music has settled down in the past years, and more and more
Christian radio stations are being started. Hopefully, this is a
sign of what's to come in the future.
