Rock satanic ke? Nibo??

I love rocks though, not all the rocks !

The satanic aspect of rock is just a marketing gimmicks to enhance record sales . its a deliberate attempt to play with your minds ! Why fall for those craps??

Do we have to stop reading because of some devilish and satanic write ups?

Lets all break our T.Vs because of the " satanic" stuff we see on there??

We should kill ourselves because of satanic occurences in the world?

To me, rock is just another type of music and it doesnt connote any form satanic references.

Listen to this songs.

Its backward statements like these that prevent progress in Nigeria

when Nigerians are faced with something new or something they don't understand they immediately proclaim it demonic.

Just because some of u don't listen to rock music, it has to be demonic.

someone mentioned that they abusive to women, what about rap music.

You can't just call an entire genre of music demonic, there r Christian rock music u know,

i came across another thread by an ignorant buffoon, attacking a religion he doesnt understand

Most rock songs are outright satanic and it's only a FOOL that will deny that fact.

It is pertinent to note that Satan did not and cannot create anything. Music (all forms of it) was created by God as were other things. What satan does is to take this created things that are good and pervert it to suit his needs. So, there is indeed some rock genres that have satanic roots. However, christians are beginning to adopt rock music and adapt its messages to the gospel. What you need to do is simply select what you listen to. If it sounds satanic, chuck it!!

Not all music is. Basically, you can say the same about any kind of music (hip hop, r&B, even juju), any music can be satanic depending on who's singing it, what their intentions are and what kind of message they're trying to get across. i personally don't think rock music is satanic.

You know, before there was rock and roll, some short-sighted individuals thought that bebop was satanic, what with its frenetic meters and such.  Before that, people thought that jazz was satanic with its wild improvisational nature and fierce solos.  Way back, some thought that the blues was satanic because it used scales differently than mainstream music.  

Classical music was considered oh-so-wrong because it exhibited so much more textural emotion than that which came before it.  And, speaking of which, the Baroque music of the mid to late 1600s was initially looked down upon because it embraced a complex, almost mathematical feel that made some uncomfortable.  

Are we seeing a trend, here?  Now that the Baroque and Classical are pretty much the "standards" of western music, and jazz (bebop and blues, too) are getting their scholarly attention, we can clearly see that rock music (now having been part of the world culture for more than half a century), is no more damaging to our collective sensibility than anything that has come before it.  

If rock music is so bad, where's the scholarly support for the argument?

I just wonder what qualifies a song or a type of music as demonic, is it the lyrics?the dressing of the singers or is it the tone of the videos, whatever if these are in any way the reasons being adduced by the poster, well many so called 'gospel' videos made in naija qualify as satanic, someone told me a video by INFINITY looked 'satanic'

now what do y'all make of that?

guys, whats with you all turning what was supposed to be an intellectual discussion into a kiddie shoutfest. On my part, I wouldn't come to any conclusions and say that any genre of music is evil BUT i think that it is imperative that you observe the source of the lyrics to the music that you are listening to. First of all, if you are a christian, then you must believe that it is what comes out of a man that defiles him and not what goes in because it is an expression of what is in his heart. Now, when a man calls it a joke to bad mouth God, not christianity, then i would not see any sense in listening to what he has to say, why? Its simple, he is a big fool, he does not fear God. Secondly, i don't think that a person who has nothing positive to say should be paid much attention and this goes for all genres of music. I believe that music should inspire, educate, uplift and be edifying. There is not much that a junkie or a murderer or a slut will sing and will be along these lines. My verdict, don't be quick to judge but be very careful of who wrote whatever it is you are singing and dancing to because music is a reflection of self.

Growing up in the US i have learned that 'demonic/stantic' messages are everywhere, in every genre of music. Between DMX, Black Sabbath, and Disney movies that have hidden mesages in them, one cant deny that. But to claim one genre of music is the vehicle of the devil is just a useless claim. I listen to a lot of rock because my mother didn't understand rap, heard an angry black man, and changed the channel, i know rock, and yes there are some that send the wrong message (demonic message) but i don't think beyonce jumping around half Unclad like a half possessed child is any better

more satanists - linkin park

i guess thats why the lead singer keeps changing his hair

It starts with one thing

I don't know why

It doesn't even matter how hard you try keep that in mind

I designed this rhyme

To explain in due time

All I know

Time is a valuable thing

Watch it fly by as the pendulum swings

Watch it count down to the end of the day

The clock ticks life away

It's so unreal

Didn't look out below

Watch the time go right out the window

Trying to hold on, but didn't even know

Wasted it all just to watch you go

I kept everything inside and even though I tried, it all fell apart

What it meant to me will eventually be a memory of a time when

I tried so hard

And got so far

But in the end

It doesn't even matter

I had to fall

To lose it all

But in the end

It doesn't even matter

One thing, I don't know why

It doesn�t even matter how hard you try, keep that in mind

I designed this rhyme, to explain in due time

I tried so hard

In spite of the way you were mocking me

Acting like I was part of your property

Remembering all the times you fought with me

I'm surprised it got so (far)

Things aren't the way they were before

You wouldn't even recognize me anymore

Not that you knew me back then

But it all comes back to me (in the end)

You kept everything inside and even though I tried, it all fell apart

What it meant to me will eventually be a memory of a time when I

Chorus

I�ve put my trust in you

Pushed as far as I can go

And for all this

There's only one thing you should know (2x) Chorus

Like my mom said when she saw the CNN Documentary about Nigerians in America.  " GENERALISATION GBA"

this is nothing but a case of Generalisation. It's a common say that in order to relay a valid argument, one must state both sides. Many of you have failed to acknowledge the good works of others. It wasn't even a case of " Most rock band" " Majority of rock music" but rather "Rock music" which includes every genre of Rock. There are countless mainstream artist that have consistently acknowledge God in their music. Coldplay - a multiplatinum selling group- for one, sang this song

Where do we go nobody knows?

Ive gotta say Im on my way down

God give me style and give me grace

God put a smile upon my face

Where do we go to draw the line?

Ive gotta say I wasted all your time, honey honey

Where do I go to fall from grace?

God put a smile upon your face

Yeah

And ah

When you work it out Im worse than you

Yeah

When you work it out I wanted to

And ah

When you work out where to draw the line

Your guess is as good as mine

Where do we go nobody knows?

Dont ever say youre on your way down when

God gave you style and gave you grace

God put a smile upon your face

And ah

When you work it out Im worse than you

Yeah

When you work it out I wanted to

And ah

When you work out where to draw the line

Your guess is as good as mine

Its as good as mine

As good as mine

The heart is a bloom

Shoots up through the stony ground

There's no room

No space to rent in this town

You're out of luck

And the reason that you had to care

The traffic is stuck

And you're not moving anywhere

You thought you'd found a friend

To take you out of this place

Someone you could lend a hand

In return for grace

It's a beautiful day

Sky falls, you feel like

It's a beautiful day

Don't let it get away

You're on the road

But you've got no destination

You're in the mud

In the maze of her imagination

You love this town

Even if that doesn't ring true

You've been all over

And it's been all over you

It's a beautiful day

Don't let it get away

It's a beautiful day

Touch me

Take me to that other place

Teach me

I know I'm not a hopeless case

See the world in green and blue

See China right in front of you

See the canyons broken by cloud

See the tuna fleets clearing the sea out

See the Bedouin fires at night

See the oil fields at first light

And see the bird with a leaf in her mouth

After the flood all the colors came out

It was a beautiful day

Don't let it get away

Beautiful day

Touch me

Take me to that other place

Reach me

I know I'm not a hopeless case

What you don't have you don't need it now

What you don't know you can feel it somehow

What you don't have you don't need it now

Don't need it now

Was a beautiful day

Ok, there is a question mark, so i will assume this is a question

Rock Music is not Satanic.

From the replies i have read, it is obvious there is a pure lack of understanding here

Rock music is as satanic as any other kind of music you listen to.

Because some rock musicians do state where their worship lies doesn't mean the whole

genre should be termed as such.

Rock is a Genre which simply denotes how a certain piece of music is arranged or played

Simple. People please, be objective, this is a bit ridiculous to hear.

You hit the nail in the head( BRAVO ZULU ). Nice lyrist you named there, common, talib kweli, dead prez, by the ways have you seen Talib Kweli's new video Hostile Gospel - It was shot in Nigeria, talib was climbing Okada and stuff, he really embraced the culture without critisizing it.

TO Issue Concerning Rock Music.

I think the genre most people are refering is the Gothic side of rock music.

Most Rock songs pass powerful messages either about falling in love, heart brokenness, broken homes, dashed hopes.

Is the group U2 demonic? I hope you know they are a rock band right? they have done more for Africa than all the Nigerian leaders combined have done for Nigeria.

or is Green day demonic. Listen to the lyrics then you will begin to understand.

One of my Favorite group is a rock band Evanescene, whose lead singer Amy lee is in my opinion one of the most mature and self respecting individual in hollywood.

a rap song is always talking about how fresh how real how much money u got how gansta u are and poo,how to get girls.

a rock song is always talking about how gay how weird,and rock people are gay people undercover,dress in tight jeans piercing every part of they body looking nasty sneefing coke amin the hip hop tradition is something that black people got from the hood while they were struggling hard life,but a rock song is always talking about silly poo and having a hole bunch of tattoos.

It'amusing to say the least, your argument. Have you ever really listened to rock? I might be suffering from selective amnesia but most rock songs i listen to speak in very lucid terms about the depth and complexity of the human ex;perience. It's also true that some rock stars are all you described in your post but those you allude to are not representative of the entire genre. It's like drawing blanket conclusions on hip hop as violent, shallow, materialistic, denigrating to women, lewd (which some would ascribe to the work of demons of the last days) etc because of the work of some of their artists while ignoring the lifting work of people like talib kweli, dead prez, common, kanye west etc. So, I think it would be fair and only logical to understand the diffrerence between the main form and the extreme of any social or artistic expression.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Backmasking

Satanic backmasking

Although the Satanic backmasking controversy involved mainly classic rock songs whose authors denied any intent to promote Satanism, backmasking has been used by heavy metal bands to insert Satanic messages in their lyrics or imagery. Still, the majority of bands that use Satanic imagery have not been shown to be Satanists, and many bands have utilized Satanic imagery solely for commercial reasons.[38] For example, thrash metal band Slayer included at the start of the band's 1985 album Hell Awaits a deep backmasked voice chanting "Join Us" over and over at increasing volumes for 1 minute and 2 seconds until a deep voice says "Welcome Back."(listen (info)).[39][40][41] However, Slayer vocalist Tom Araya states that the band's use of Satanic imagery was "solely for effect".[42] Cradle of Filth, another band that has employed Satanic imagery, released a song entitled "Dinner at Deviant's Palace", consisting almost entirely of ambient sounds and a reversed reading of the Lord's Prayer[43] (a backwards reading of the Lord's Prayer is reportedly a major part of the Black Mass).[19][44

back in the day i thought all that gangsta rap was 4 real. these days when kids jbber about how tough 50 cent is, i just laugh. in showbiz, there no such thing as bad publicity. shock rises your artiste's profile and thats what sells records. end of story. campaigns against the hidden message etal will only make people go out and buy the music to see for themselves. for all you know some of these christain crusaders are nothing more than savvy publicists.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/David_Noebel

David A. Noebel (born 1937[1]) is an American religious leader. He is the current director of Summit Ministries, in Manitou Springs, Colorado in the United States. Since the 1960s, he has written widely on the relationship between religion and popular culture, and is an outspoken critic of secular humanism,[2] which he describes as a religion.[3]

Noebel was a member of the Council for National Policy beginning in 1984, and a candidate for Congress against Rep. Robert Kastenmeier, and was a former Associate Evangelist of Billy James Hargis's Christian Crusade.[4]Contents [hide]

Life

Noebel was educated at the Milwaukee Bible College, Hope College (Holland, Michigan, B.A.), and the University of Tulsa (M.A.). He studied philosophy at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, but did not complete a doctorate; despite this, he and his organization continually refer to him as "Dr. David Noebel"[5]. He was ordained a minister in 1961.[6] He was pastor of Grace Bible Church, Madison, Wisconsin; president and professor of Biblical Studies, American Christian College, Tulsa, Oklahoma. He is a member of the American Philosophical Association and the Southwestern Philosophical Society. He is also a member of the International Platform Association.

In 1962 he founded Summit Ministries, a Christian leadership training organization designed "to help parents prepare their teenage children to maintain and defend the Christian worldview in the midst of anti-Christian schools, universities, and society in general."[6] He has directed the Summit Youth Ministries since 1964. The ministry grew in size considerably after being mentioned on James Dobson's radio show.[6] He is editor of their monthly journal, The Journal.

In 1965 he wrote a pamphlet, "Communism, Hypnotism And The Beatles." It was followed in 1966 by Rhythm, Riots, and Revolution, which inflamed the debate about the presence of Communism in music, especially folk and folk-rock. [7] He saw contemporary popular music as a Soviet plot to brainwash American youth. Unlike other religious critics of popular music, he backed up his analysis with references outside the Bible, using scholarly footnotes and . The attack was influential and widely adopted by later critics of rock music.[8]

At the same time as a spoken word album, The Marxist Minstrels, was released. The back cover of the album promotes the book, which is said to describe "how the American Reds are using music to destroy our youth, Morally and Patriotically!" According to the blurb, Noebel spent two years writing the book and discussed it nationally in the media, including a feature in Newsweek.[9] The book The Marxist Mistrels, published in 1973, expands on his theory of the communist intentions of rock music.[8]

In 1977, he published The Homosexual Revolution, which was dedicated to Anita Bryant. In this book he describes how "homosexuality rapidly is becoming one of America's most serious social problems."[10] He later co-authored AIDS: Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome: A Special Report', and contributed frequent articles against homosexuality to The Journal.

In 1991 he authored the 900-page Understanding the Times: The Religious Worldviews of our Day and the Search for Truth, a textbook interpreting current intellectual movements, from Biblical Christianity, Secular Humanism, Marxism/Leninism, the New Age Movement, Islam, and Postmodernism. It is widely used among Christian schools, churches and colleges, either in its unabridged or abridged formats. Ministry Watch described it as his most notable book.[6] It was cited by DJ Grothe as changing his life, inadvertently, by introducing him to humanism.[11]

In 2001, Noebel co-authored with Tim LaHaye Mind Siege, which was a New York Times best-seller.[11] He has also produced a number of educational materials, including textbooks (with teacher's guides) and video curricula.

we can also assume that TV is satanic - since there is so much sex on TV. . .

and what does this have to say about christian rock that features on gospel radio etal? is that also stealth satanism?

In Smash Hits magazine, Bon Jovi says: ". . . I'd kill my mother for rock and roll.  I WOULD SELL MY SOUL."

“We receive our songs by inspiration, like at a séance” (Keith Richards of the ROLLING STONES, Rolling Stone, May 5, 1977, p. 55).

"The throbbing beat of rock provides a vital sexual release for adolescent audiences." (Jan Berry)

"Pop music is sex, and you have to hit them in the face with it." (Andrew Oldham, recording manager for the 'Rolling Stones')

"We take kids away from their parents and their environment to where the only reality is the rhythm and the beat." (Donnie Brewer of Grand Funk)

"Rock music is a greater influence over the souls of men than primitive Christianity." (John Denver)

"Sex is where its at in music, and I like it." (Johnny Bristol)

"I’ve always thought that the main ingredients in rock are sex, really good stage shows and really sassy music, Sex and sass, I think that’s where it’s at." (Debbie Harry, lead singer with Blondie)

"I'm in rock music for the sex and narcotics." (Glenn Frey of 'The Eagles')

"Rock 'n' roll is 99% sex." (John Oates)

", 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'" ([color=#990000]Carlos Santana, Rolling Stone magazine, March 16, 2000, p. 41)[/color]

"Everyone takes it for granted that rock and roll is synonymous with sex." (Chris Stein, lead guitarist with 'Blondie.')

"Rock music is sex. The beat matches the body rhythms." (Frank Zappa, superstar of 'Mothers of Invention' fame.)

"Rock concerts are the churches of today." (Guitarist Craig Chaquico of the group 'Jefferson Starship.')

“I felt like a hollow temple filled with many spirits, each one passing through me, each inhabiting me for a little time and then leaving to be replaced by another” (John Lennon, People, Aug. 22, 1988, p. 70).

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, helped inspire their music!  Their album titled, "Their Satanic Majesties Request", leaves no doubt to their allegiance!

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."

I have heard that rock was satanic long ago but I felt it was untrue, not until I watched a documentary by Harun yahya saying many rock stars are satanists. There was a rock concert in the U.S and bibles were been torn and burnt on stage. People were really acting crazy.Shouting half Unclad and talking against God.

It's satanic, but may appear so only if you know what satanic is.

But to call all rock music "satanic", that's just ridiculous and something I'd expect from Baba Suwe.

I personally believe that what makes a song satanic or not is the motive behind the songwriter's/instrumentalist's writing the song. That's why gospel rock is NOT satanic because the writer's motive is to glorify God.

Or haven't you discovered that as nice as latin music is, there are some instrumentals (not even lyrics) that are deliberately designed to arouse sexual feelings, which would be inappropriate for certain age groups and single folks. So it depends on the effect(s) the writer(s) intend it to have on people.
