“Rock Music and Sexual License”
January 10th, 2015

 The call for sexual license has been the heart and soul of rock music from its inception, and this is brazen rebellion against God's holy law of marriage. The rock world is a sleazy, filthy world. From the 1950s until today, rock music has been filled with immorality. It is impossible for a Bible-believing Christian to watch the Grammys or to read Rolling Stone and other rock magazines or even to browse the Walmart pop music department or the pop music section of the Apple iTunes store without seeing the continual flaunting of nakedness and the glorification of sexual license. The lives of popular rock musicians have been filled with profanity, fornication, adultery, multiple marriages, homosexuality, lesbianism, alcohol abuse, drug abuse, tumult, and suicide. This fact alone should cause Bible-believing Christians to avoid rock as they would avoid the devil himself. The very idea of using this sensual music to worship a holy God is spiritual insanity. Consider some statements by the rock and rollers themselves in which they testify of the character of rock music: "Rock and roll is the darkness that enshrouds secret desires unfulfilled, and the appetite that shoves you forward to disrobe them" (Timothy White, Rock Lives, p. xvi). "Everyone takes it for granted that rock and roll is synonymous with sex" (Chris Stein, Blondie, People, May 21, 1979). "Rock music is sex. The big beat matches the body's rhythms" (Frank Zappa of the Mothers of Invention, Life, June 28, 1968). "The sex is definitely in the music, and sex is in all aspects of the music" (Luke Campbell of 2 Live Crew). "Rock 'n' roll is synonymous with sex and you can't take that away from it. It just doesn't work" (Steven Tyler of Aerosmith, Entertainment Tonight, ABC, Dec. 10, 1987). "Rock 'n' roll is 99% sex" (John Oates of Hall & Oates, Circus, Jan. 31, 1976). "Pop music revolves around sexuality" (Adam Ant, From Rock to Rock, p. 93). "Perhaps my music is sexy ... but what music with a big beat isn't?" (Jimi Hendrix, Henderson, cited from his biography 'Scuse Me While I Kiss the Sky, p. 117). "... rock music has one appeal only, a barbaric appeal to sexual desire" (Allan Bloom, The Closing of the American Mind, p. 73). "Rock 'n' roll is sex. Real rock 'n' roll isn't based on cerebral thoughts. It's based on one's lower nature" (Paul Stanley of KISS, cited from The Role of Rock, p. 44). "That's what rock is all about—sex with a 100 megaton bomb, THE BEAT!" (Gene Simmons of Kiss, Entertainment Tonight, ABC, Dec. 10, 1987). "Rock 'n' roll is all sex. One hundred percent sex" (Debbie Harry of Blondie, cited by Carl Belz, "Television Shows and Rock Music," The Age of Communication, Goodyear Publishing Company, 1974, p. 398). "We respond to the materiality of rock's sounds, and the rock experience is essentially erotic" (Simon Frith, Sound Effects, New York: Pantheon Books, 1981, p. 164).
