Presenting: Satanica!


I came of age during one of the more regrettable fads associated with Christian fundamentalism:
backwards masking.

It seems every band back in the early 1980s had a pact with the devil, from witchy woman Stevie Nicks to the Electric Light Orchestra. And you thought AC/DC had something to do with sound? Naive fool ... it's Antichrist/Devil's Children. Fellow soldiers in the Army of Darkness included KISS (Kids in Satan's Service) and Styx (that's a river in Hades, people. You know, HELL!)

And don't let the name fool you: Christopher Cross (of "Sailing" fame) was every bit as loyal as Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page was to the lord of the underground.
