AC/DC=Anti Christ/Devil's Child, KISS=Kids In Satan's Servic

Back in the 70's (when I was but a wee lad) I remember the dumbass bitch of an aunt I had. She was like REAL christian, the kind the give other christians a bad name, if you know what I mean. Any way I remember them saying that these bands were Satanic (which got me even more interested in them, but we know they aint Satanic) among others. Back then they were into Backward Masking (playing LP's backwards to find hidden Satanic messages).

I remember one day at church (yes I went to church as a kid, why do you think I am anti christianity now) they played a few albums backward and I heard the words. Of course I know (kinda knew then too) that they weren't purposely put in, but it was cool. Queen, Styx, Led Zepplin had some "Satanic" messages (Well Queen's was a drug message not Satanic). I was sold. Rock and Metal became my favorite music that day (not that I didn't already like it).

Still they had a few different "Names" for AC/DC and KISS, not just what's in my title. After Christ/Devil Comes, and Anti Christ/Devil's Child like in my title. KISS were Knights In Satan's Service as well as Kids In Satan's Service.

Do any of you folks remember these kind of things? Some are still around today (the back masking thing, the supposed meaning of the band's names). What's you take on this?

Yeah my dad and grandma still says that KISS stands for Knights In Satan's Service. I don't listen to KISS that much but they still say it. They also don't approve that I listen to Iced Earth because they did an album about Spawn, the leader of Hell's army.

It's all a bunch of bullshit. I personally don't think any of those bands made in the 70s or 80s that got this kind of criticism did that shit on purpose. But I could be wrong, I guess. Everything is possible and yet again everything is not possible. It takes a long time to explain.

uhh don't they even bother to read Spawn a bit. He's trying to fight it, not just "I love Satan, I'll go lead his army on mankind"

Ignorance is not bliss, its a cancer
