Top 10 Reasons Why Rock and Roll Is Not Satanic

Are you people getting so sick and tired of that old rumor of rock being the devil's music? It's a stupid rumor that needs to die now. Rock Music is not an excuse to be satanic. A music genre is not an excuse to be satanic. Screaming, loud drums, and loud guitar playing does NOT equal to satanism! In fact, there's a lot of rock bands that soften up the vocals and instrumentals. Heck there's even Christian Rock. I'm not joking, it exists.

Do you people seriously think that artists like Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus, and Ke$ha are good role models for your kids? Do you actually believe that Nicki Minaj is the most appropriate artist for your children because of what ABC Nightline said? And because of those two little girls singing Super Bass on The Ellen DeGeneres Show?

My whole point is that we should stop viewing rock and heavy metal as both a dangerous influence on society and a tool of Satan because a music genre is not an excuse to be violent or satanic. I'm not saying that rock is better than all music genres nor do I think that way. I'm not really much of a rock fan myself (although I do like some bands like Pink Floyd and Florence and the Machine. And I like some metal bands like Within Temptation and Korn), but I never for a second thought that rock (and metal) was satanic. So that's why I'm helping all of you rock fans out there spread the word that rock is not the devil's music. Whenever you hear anybody say rock and roll is the devil's music, show them this list (and other lists like this on this website). Keep spreading the word. Keep letting people know that rock and metal are both not satanic. Don't let rock and roll die.

2Screaming, Loud Drums, and Loud Guitar Playing Does Not Equal to Satanism

I've always wondered who in this sane world would consider it a "logical reason" to say that loud guitar and drums is equal to Satanism. It's just so stupid.

There have been countless times when rock and roll has pulled me out of a rut. Most recently, it was David Bowie.
