Opposing Views

Though we all know that Rock N' Roll Religion is a for sure thing and that at its core lives love and acceptance, there are people out there who are absolutely convinced beyond a reasonable doubt that Rock Music is evil and that rock musicians are Devil Worshipers and or Satanists. Well.. perhaps they are. You be the judge.
