Why Do People Think That Metal is “The Devil’s Music?”
Metal has always been associated as anti-establishment music. Elvis was filmed from the waste up because of his dance moves. The Beatles were condemned for their hair and style. Many of the early bands and rock-stars such as Hendrix and Jim Morrison died of drug overdose. It has been stigmatized.
However, I was a long haired rocker of the 80’s. The first time I walked into a church and heard Contemporary Christian Music, I was sold. Psalms says make a joyful noise, not play only with a harp and pipe organ. I stopped going to church as an adult because I couldn’t stomach 12th Century pipe organ music. Like many others, I feel connected to God when rocking with a Marshall Amp turned to 11! Music is what you make it!
