It looks like I may be going to Kings Island, and Holiday World. (next year)

Hey, you're entitled to your opinions. And I utterly don't care.

First off, had the video I linked to been Christian or secular, it would have still generated plenty of laughs for me. It was one of the better recommended picks Youtube has generated lately, and it's all thanks to this thread.

As for Christian music, I tend to connect it to a disturbing experience I had many years ago at my cousin's Christian school graduation ceremony that I was invited to. Out of nowhere, some crazed speaker came onto the stage, screaming that everyone here today must burn all the secular music. That it was evil, destroying our world, and saying it was a major cause of sins, violence, sexual issues, and other absurd claims. Every few sentences he screamed, "BURN THE SECULAR MUSIC!" Even scarier, people were standing up all over, crossing their chest and saying, "Amen."

It was one of the first times in my life where I realized how dangerous and cult-like religion can potentially be. It's one thing to like Christian music because it provides you some kind of inner peace or connection. It's another thing to be brainwashed that one can only listen to Christian music or they're sinning.

The only Christian music, and if not sin thing is not true. I prefer Christian music because I feel closer to God, but non Christian music that isn't negative has some grey lines in it.

The only satanic music, and if not salvation thing is not true. I prefer satanic music because I feel closer to Satan, but non-satanic music that isn't positive has some grey lines in it.

Billb, did you bother to look at the rest of the thread?

If this thread really needed a picture of Stryper, it would have already had one by now. Oh, wait....

you need to visit Holiday World but don't think it's going to take you a couple days to experience it. I've been there twice the past two years to ride the coasters and they are incredible. The lines are short, at least early in the week and the waterpark is amazing. The food is cheap, unlike every other theme park. Very clean and friendly too. Was at Cedar Point 3 weeks ago and had an incredible visit.

The only good thing about Stryper and the tired, stultified posturing that late 80s hair metal devolved to is that it touched off Nirvana.

I think it's Metal Sludge that has an entire section devoted to how all the cool 90's peeps were teasing their hair and wearing tights in the 80's..... look at a band like Pantera "Proud to be Loud" LOL it's an awful generic 80's metal song, ... by 1991 Phil Anselmo were calling all the 80's metal guys "fags"

LOL. I find it hilarious that Phil Anselmo's biggest influence in that Proud to be Loud song seemed to be Rob Halford, who later came out of the closet. Over the years, I've grown to really dislike Phil Anselmo. I can't even stand to listen to Pantera anymore.

Some "celebrities" make me feel bad for them, because they think that they are cooler than me, just because they got a record deal a few decades ago. I hate cocky famous people.

I like Pantera's music.. it has a groove to it, other than straight 132nd notes rapidly palm muted on the low E string (detuned to C# LOL).

You can tell those guys are from Texas, kind of a metalfied ZZ Top.

Was never really a fan of Phil's half shouted half sung delivery.

The 90's were no different from the 80's from the standpoint of what happened. You had some cool original ideas in the beginning, then record companies diluting the scene, or bands trying to force fit themselves into the scene..

Heh.. dig Pantera's 90's makeover LOL

Which was a HUGE surprise....

To absolutely no one!

I always LMAO at the "Hot Rockin" video.... shirtless Judas Priest on a Nautlis machine with the pin set at 20 lbs, and then sitting around a sauna... quite frankly I thought they were all gay.

They're not?

Well, they were living after midnight, breaking the law. So you decide. ;)

One of the great jokes in all of metal is that the uber-macho leather and studs appearance of the 80s came directly from Halford, who had in turn taken it directly from the gay S&M aesthetic.

Turbo Lover?

Oh yeah? Well, explain these, then!
