The Hidden Face of Rock Music

Written by Editor VOPUS   


Each person likes a certain type of music, in which one’s level of consciousness and one’s particular psychology reflects.

We can see what reactions every type of music causes within us and ask ourselves what is the reason of this reaction and if what we feel is what we truly look for in life.

The Hidden Face of Rock Music - Angels: William Bouguereau

Types of music:

  1. Music from and for the consciousness

  2. Causes an animic elevation (the music of the great classical masters).

  3. Music for the body

  4. It has a relaxing and inner harmonizing effect (the oriental music).

  5. The music of the personality

  6. Causes the activation of the personality: society danses, balads, folk music... Basically, this music should be harmless.

  7. The music of the ego

  8. Causes the activation of the passions and the inferior feelings (rock music, heavy metal, etc...).


Elvis Presley

Rock music is born as a new musical rhythm in the ‘50’s. It’s different from all that existed before and it has something revolutionary. It comes with new (erotic) moves and new and provocative guitar arrangements.

1951 Little Richard is the first who has the idea to modify the rhythm of the blues.

1954 Bill Halley with his Comets and with “rock around the clock” begin a new cycle to whom most young people adhere.

A young 'disk-jockey' from Cleveland looks for a name for this new rhythm amongst the slangs of the ghettos of black people and chose the expression 'Rock and Roll' which calls, in this slang, the movements of the body when carrying out the intercourse.

In 1955, a young singer proceeds to practice and describes on stage the technique of this new musical style. This singer was Elvis Presley, who turns into the symbol of an entire generation rebelled against all the taboos and sexual interdiction of a puritanical America. Through his lyrics, through his music and provocative gestures did not cease to acclaim the virtues of free love.

Rock and Rollcould not limite to that. The appearance of The Beatles and Rolling Stones comes to confirm it.

Kurt Cobain

It grew until converting itself into a true religion – sometimes even fanatical – for millions of young people. About this, the musicologist Gary Allen says: 'For many young people music has taken the place of traditional religious beliefs as a source of the most absolute of their convictions; they can quote texts and the origin of the songs in the same way people quoted from the Bible, in the past'. It causes large-scale phenomena, such as the “Rock in Rio” festival which gathered up to 250.000 people. It mobilizes millions of dollars every year and passes freely into all countries and places. What few know, but most intuit and the experts declare it, is that rock can harm physically, psychologically and morally. The experts have demonstrated that it causes effects that lead from deafness up to depersonalization and to the generation of mental pathologies. Moreover, there is a close connection between the current rock music and the massive wave of satanic cults which managed a massive penetration firstly through subliminal ways and then through direct and obvious ways.

Rock Music divided itself throughout the time in different trends:

i.   The original Rock came to be 'Soft Rock' or easy, after the appearance of the rough or hard one. It’s represented by Elvis Presley...

ii.    'Hard'or 'Heavy Rock' rough or hard) represented especially by Alice Cooper (Vincent Fournier). He is the one who investigates, in all its aspects, the fundamental characteristic of rock, 'the beat' (the rhythm), that is the sound of the percussion instruments later supplimented by the electrical bass. Is inspired by the excitative percussion of the voodoo rites and of black magic of the African groups; rhythms and rites closely related to sexuality.

iii.    The 'Acid Rock' investigates all the hallucinogenic aspects, makes an incursion into all that means drugs. The band The Beatles (who take their name from the 'beat') tells in their song 'The yellow submarine' a psychedelic hallucination. The Rolling Stones and The Who with their songs: 'Sister morphine', 'Cousin cocaine' and 'Stoned'.

iv.    Satanic rock had begun to be broadcasted on a subliminal way, but continues each time more open. The adepts use to be practitioners of the diabolical sects, walk accompanied by turned back pentagrams, names of demons...Is represented, among others, by the following groups: KISS (Kings In Satan’s Service). The group AC/DC (Australian), its name being interpreted as 'Alternating Current/Direct Current', but was read also as: 'Anti-Christ/Death to Christ'. One of the members, when asked about the true significance, replied that it remains to the free interpretation of everyone. This category also includes Black Sabbath, Ozzy Osbourne, Led Zeppelin.

The K.I.S.S. rock band

'Sex, drugs and Rock and Roll' comes to be the motto of many rock groups and of an entire generation, which, from the desire of defeating the rules, get to be a cursed generation; represented especially by all hard rock, heavy metal groups and punk movements...About these rough musics, the musicologist Francisco Garlock says: 'A person is known by the friends he has, according to an old proverb. It would be impossible to make a complet list, but here are a few of rock’s friends: drugs addicts, worshipers of Satan, homosexuals and other sexual deviants, rebels without a cause, criminals, blasphemous people, immoralities, promiscuous people, anarchists of civilians and military, musical pornographic shows etc, The list could continue almost endlessly.'

The history of rock music is associated with the idea of dying young, it is sown with deaths, drugs, barbiturates, alcohol, suicides, gun shootings, rapes, homosexualism, drunkenesses, satanism and cults devoted to the devil.

Curiosities of Rock Music and Rockers

The Beatles

The Beatles: it’s known that the song 'The Yellow Submarine' was the result of a hallucination under the influence of marijuana. On the cover of the famous album, Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band (1967), appears a surprise: 'in the upper right side appears the picture of Aleister Crowley, satanist, "the dirtiest and most perverse character of Great Britain", as stated by the British press after his death in 1947.'

John Lennon and Lucie: In the song “Bring on the Lucie”, from the album Mind Games, plays with the name of Lucifer and refer to the number of the beast, 666, which stirred reasons for the speculations to continue.

Led Zeppelin

Led Zeppelin: If there was any group with a black legend, it was Led Zeppelin. Playing the song 'Stairway To Heaven' backwards, of Led Zeppelin, IV (1971), it can be heard: 'I live with Satan' and ' sweet Satan...the other’s little path would make me sad, whose power is faith... he’ll give those with him 666.' The guitarist Jimmy Page was a collector of satanic objects and came to Scotland to buy a haunted house that belonged to the satanist Aleister Crowley.

Ozzy Osbourne

If Ozzy Osbourne would have lived two centuries ago, the inquisitors would have fought for who to torture him, burn and send him to the infernos without any indulgence. Great blood taster, Ozzy liked to sing accompanied by crosses turned upside down and to behead, on stage, pidgeons and bats with his teeth. His first single disk, after he left Black Sabbath, 'Blizzard of Oz' (1980), included a song dedicated to Aleister Crowley, and the second one, 'Diary of a madman' (1981), takes the name of a work of this satanist. Ozzy has repeatedly visited the North American courts of justice, being accused that through his educational songs, such as 'Suicide Solution', would have led some youths to suicide. Other eccentricities of his: to throw pig’s intestines to his public, to tear with his teeth the heads of mice.

The legacy left by the Black Sabbath band: they are guilty of the passion of the metal groups for the satanic imagery. In the end of the hippie era, Black Sabbath opened the black age of rock and roll, populating their songs and concerts with mentions to the address of Lucifer. The cursed seed of Ozzy Osbourne’s band germinated in the hearts of and entire generation of musicians.

Alice Cooper

The reincarnated witch: Alice Cooper (a. k. a. Vincent Fournier) has always highlighted himself through his good taste: not only that he was the first rocker who dedicated songs to menstruation and to the sex with dead people, but he went way too far on stage with a wide range of abuses that included the electric chair and the guillotine.

Furnier borrowed the name Alice Cooper from a witch from the 17th century, being convinced that he was a reincarnation of this after a seance of spiritism.


AC/DC: The electrocuted devil: It would seem that Angus Young is possessed by the devil, if we were to judge by the convulsions he has in the AC/DC concerts. Young asked to draw him horns and tail in 1979 for the cover of 'Highway to hell', archetype of the heavy metal album with diabolic reasons. Here is a verse from their song 'Hell’s Bells':

'I got my bell I'm gonna take you to hell / I'm gonna get ya, satan get ya / Hells bells / Hells bells, you got me ringing / Hells bells, my temperature's high / Hells bells.'

Rolling Stones

Rolling Stones: Their discography is a true gold mine for the fans of Beelzebub. The Rolling Stones have won their nickname of 'Their satanic Majesties' after they published in 1967 'Their satanic majestic request', in response to the 'Sgt. Pepper’s...' album of The Beatles. Since then rumors began to spread about the alleged membership of Mick Jagger, Keith Richards and Brian Jones to satanic sects.

The cherry on top of the cake came along with 'Sympathy for the devil' from the album 'Beggars banquet' (1968); on the cover of the album 'Goat’s head soup' (1973) appeared a goat’s head stew; on 'Tattoo you' (1981), a hairy leg. At the 'Rock in Rio' concert, tens of chickens were released off the stage to be crushed while they were singing.

Rock Concert

All groups have as a common denominator the same type of music. There is a music concretely specialized to unbalance the mind and the emotions. Through this music the individual falls slowly and without realizing it into denser and more unbalanced psychological states.

In this type of music we must differentiate the one that, in full knowledge, is aimed to enslave man in denser psychological states; in very subtle way, this music has inscribed inside it negative, sometimes satanic, messages, as we can see below.

Paul Crousch, who works on an English radio station, is known as the “seeker of the devil” because of his passion to search for satanic subliminal messages. One day he came up with the idea to listen to different songs of many rock groups, but playing the tape backwards. Great was his surprise to find impressive messages. Some examples we transcribe below:


In the song 'Revolution No. 9' of The Beatles, composed by John Lennon, we can hear: 'Turn me on, dead man!'/p>

But, if this could seem as a coincidence or a bit ambiguous, on the album 'Stairway to Heaven' by Led Zeppelin, listened backwards it can be heard: 'So here’s to my Sweet Satan. The one who’s little path would make me sad, whose power is satan. He’ll give you 666'.

Pink Floyd

At other groups we encounter phrases such as this: 'Show yourself Satan, manifest yourself in our voice, Satan, Satan, Satan, is the Lord, is the Lord, the Lord'. (Then a loud cackle). Any person who wants to test what we just presented, can perform the experiment playing the tape backwards and if one has a good English knowledge, will discover these messages. As we see, even if we believe we are free people and we think we can do whatever we feel like, we are manipulated continuously and be rest assured that almost always we let ourselves influenced by the message, because it’s very strong and too well done.

Subliminal techniques: backmasking or masking by inversion or rewind, consists in recording a sound channel backwards to the normal running of the tape or the disk; the brain has mental mechanisms to assimilate these messages; but the masked message, being unintelligible, bypasses the barrier of the left hemisphere (the rational one), which is the douane of the ideas, and goes to the right side, which is more emotional, instinctive and unconscious. It is a form of programming or brainwashing. It constitutes a violation of consciousness, of the freedom of choice!!



The teenagers (to whom the right hemisphere is more active) are more exposed to these types of messages because the patterns of behaviour were not yet profoundly fixed. Thus a music can cause serious and unconscious behavioural changes in a youth.

The Beat effect and the high volume: first of all they cause isolation of the individual and consequently a lack of communication (which is one of the negative psychological effects assigned to rock music, the unsociable behaviour that creates its fervent fans).

The raised volume is an induced attitude, because at the rock concerts the volume ranges between 106 and 120 decibels (80 decibels is already an unpleasant sound, at 90 it is already harmful for the hearing). A prolonged or frequent exposure to this volume, Adam Knieste, the music therapist, says it creates:

  1. ostility
  2. exhaustion
  3. panic
  4. hypertension...

The beat effect of the drum and the frequency of the sound wave of the bass can cause an imbalance of the pituitary gland, which regulates the hormonal secretion. A frequent consequence is the sexual excitation – which can get to produce orgasm – and the increase in hormones and insulin in the blood, which makes the control functions to be lost, neutralizing the moral sense, in such a way that a person can be able to act contrary to one’s own behavioural codex, without wanting it.

Rock Effects

The stroboscopy: is the combination of light and sound through the stroboscope, which produces an audio-rhythmic effect:

  • When the alternation of light varies between 6 and 8 interruptions per second, it creates a loss of depth perception.
  • When it is of 20 interruptions per second, the luminous rays mix with the alpha waves of the brain, which control the ability to concentrate.
  • When they grow, the ability of control is lost.

The psychological effects: the psychiatric studies have demonstrated that rock music causes to certain individuals the following pathologies:

  • Modifications of emotional reactions, that go from frustration to uncontrollable violence.
  • The loss of the capacity to concentrate. Memory and neuro-muscular coordination disturbances.
  • The loss of own will.
  • Hypnotic or cataleptic condition, which transforms the person into a kind of zombie.
  • Neurosensory overexcitement which causes euphoria, autosuggestion, hysteria and including hallucination.
  • Depressive states (that go from neurosis to psychosis, especially combined with drugs).
  • Through daily listening: suicidal and homicidal tendencies.
  • During the concerts: self-mutilation, self-punishment and also irresistible impulses of destruction, vandalism and rebellion.
