Singing For Satan---Part 7


This week I continue my once-per-month series of posts regarding an informal study I undertook in the early 1990s regarding rock and pop music. The purpose of my study (and the background to it) can be read in the first installment of August 7, 2017. If you have not read that post, I strongly encourage you to do so before reading this installment. I will only repeat here the seven (7) evil elements that pervade today's music:

1. Violence/Murder/Suicide
2. Nihilism/Despair
3. Drug and alcohol glorification
4. Adultery/ Fornication and sexual perversion
5. The occult
6. Rebellion against lawful superiors
7. Blasphemy against God, Jesus Christ in particular, and the Church

 The exposing of the bands/artists continues.


The Beatles and John Lennon

 Without a doubt, The Beatles are the most influential (and wicked) rock band of all time. They started what became known as the "British Invasion" of rock and roll, when music artists from England came to the United States and started the counterculture of drugs, perversion, and turning away from God. The band was formed in Liverpool, England in 1957 under the name The Quarrymen. In 1960, they changed their name to The Beatles in honor of rock singer Buddy Holly's band, The Crickets. Holly had died in 1959 from injuries sustained in a plane crash. The Beatles or "The Fab Four" as they became known to the world, were comprised of John Lennon (d. 1980), George Harrison (d. 2001), Paul McCartney (b. 1942), and Ringo Starr (born Richard Starkey in 1940).  It is literally impossible to understate the influence they have had upon pop and rock music and-- by extension--the world.

They are the best-selling band in world history, having sold more than 800 million albums. This is not including the successful solo careers of the four as individuals. McCartney still tours and sells out stadiums wherever he goes. The Beatles were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1988, and are ranked #1 in Rolling Stone magazine's "100 Greatest Artists of All Time." 

Tuning Out God, Turning People On To Drugs

McCartney and Harrison were both baptized in the One True Church, but McCartney was raised without any religious upbringing by his nominally Catholic mother and agnostic father, whereas Harrison was raised Catholic only to forsake it by his late teens. Lennon and Starr were both raised Anglican, forsaking religion by their late teens as well. According to Beatlesinterviews.org, all four had completely turned their backs on God by 1964, the year of the so-called "British invasion" and the year the Vatican II sect was created. Paul McCartney said, "We probably seem anti-religious because of the fact that none of us believe in God." He continued, "In America, they're fanatical about God. I know somebody over there who said he was an atheist. The papers nearly refused to print it because it was such shocking news that somebody could actually be an atheist ... yeah ... and admit it." To which Ringo Starr stated, "He speaks for all of us." Not to be outdone, John Lennon said, "If you say you don't believe in God, everybody assumes you're antireligious, and you probably think that's what we mean by that. We're not quite sure 'what' we are, but I know that we're more agnostic than atheistic."

In 1965, a Hindu presented each band member with a book on reincarnation. Harrison began a life-long association with pagan Eastern religion, as did all the band members for a brief time in the late 1960s. Only Harrison remained openly enamored with paganism until his death in 2001 from lung cancer. His ashes were scattered in India in alignment with Hindu tradition. Harrison's song My Sweet Lord has actually been used at the Novus Bogus "mass" because of its "Christian lyrics":

My sweet Lord
Mm, my Lord
Mm, my Lord
I really want to see you
Really want to be with you
Really want to see you, Lord
But it takes so long, my Lord
My sweet Lord
Mm, my Lord
Mm, my Lord
I really want to know you
I really want to go with you
Really want to show you, Lord
That it won't take long, my Lord
(Hallelujah)
My sweet Lord
(Hallelujah)
My Lord
(Hallelujah)
My sweet Lord
(Hallelujah) 
However, the song is really about the demon "gods" of Hinduism. Harrison repeats part of a Hindu mantra in the lyric when he sings, "Hare Krishna... Krishna, Krishna" in the background. The Hare Krishna movement is a branch of Hinduism, formally known as Gaudiya Vaishnavism. Its name comes from its chant — Hare Krishna — which devotees repeat over and over.  John Lennon proclaimed The Beatles were "more popular than Jesus Christ" in 1966. There was an uproar around the world, and Lennon claimed he was "misunderstood." He gave a half-hearted "apology" which Montini ("Pope" Paul VI) accepted on behalf of the Modernist Vatican. I wonder if he was also "misunderstood" when he called Jesus Christ a "...garlic eating, stinking, little yellow, greasy fascist bast**d Catholic Spaniard." (See Lennon's book A Spaniard In The Works, Simon & Schuster [1965], pg.14; profanity censored by me). What blasphemy!

The Beatles with Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, a Hindu "guru" who introduced pagan meditation into the West 


To fill the void in their lives when they pushed out God, they replaced Him with drugs and encouraged the world to do the same. 

The song With A Little Help From My Friends openly speaks of getting high:

What would you think if I sang out of tune
Would you stand up and walk out on me?
Lend me your ears and I'll sing you a song
And I'll try not to sing out of key
Oh I get by with a little help from my friends
Mm I get high with a little help from my friends
Mm gonna try with a little help from my friends (Emphasis mine)

The Walrus is a nonsensical song that ends with the refrain "smoke pot, smoke pot, everybody smoke pot." Lennon claimed that it was nonsense words being sung and it just sounded that way because he wanted to "mess with people's heads." However, in his final interview with the pornographic rag Playboy, Lennon admitted in 1980 that "The first line was written on one acid trip [LSD] one weekend. The second line was written on the next acid trip the next weekend, and it was filled in after I met Yoko." 

Their song Strawberry Fields Forever is about the red patch of skin that develops on the arm of a heroin user, called a "strawberry field" in 1960s hippy lingo. Interestingly, part of Central Park, NYC was named "Strawberry Fields" in Lennon's honor after his murder. Most of the public thought the song was just about "peace and love," yet it really is a fitting "tribute" to a drug addicted musician who sang the praises of dope. All of The Beatles were drug addicts and alcoholics for at least most of their careers.Lennon would always try and exculpate himself and the group by claiming their songs were not about drugs. For example, he said Strawberry Fields Forever was about a garden in which he would play as a child growing up in Liverpool, England.

Upon inspection, Lennon's claim doesn't hold up. The lyrics to Strawberry Fields Forever speaks to a hazy, empty-minded drug induced place where "nothing is real:"
Let me take you down
'Cause I'm going to Strawberry Fields
Nothing is real
And nothing to get hung about
Strawberry Fields forever

Furthermore, in the song Glass Onion, Lennon references many of  The Beatles' other tunes. He also perpetrates a fraud upon the public that "Paul [McCartney] is dead." It was a publicity stunt to sell even more records that contained backward masked messages of how McCartney died and was replaced by a look-alike. Such deception to sell records! Now we're supposed to believe this man--- a drug addict--- when he says his songs aren't about the drugs he enjoys so much? From Glass Onion:

I told you about strawberry fields

You know the place where nothing is real...

Well here's another clue for you all

The walrus was Paul. (The opening once again has the idea of a drug induced state, and the lyrics near the end are about the "McCartney is dead" fiasco).

  Other songs that praise drugs:
  • Day Tripper (recreational drug use)
  • Magical Mystery Tour (marijuana)
  • Got To Get You Into My Life (McCartney admitted it was not about a girl but marijuana)
  • Happiness Is A Warm Gun ("warm gun" was slang for a hypodermic needle hot with heroin, and the lyrics say to "shoot" as in "shoot up")
  • Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds (Lennon claimed it was about his son seeing the Peanuts character Lucy in the stars or "with diamonds." Actually, it is an acrostic for "LSD")
From the Pagan to the Satanic

 Despite their claims of "agnosticism" and disavowal of all religion, the band members never fully severed ties with pagan Hinduism. In addition, the band was an admirer of Satanist Aleister Crowley (born Edward Alexander Crowley in 1875; died 1947). Crowley wrote The Book of the Law which declared that its followers should "Do what thou wilt" and seek to align themselves with their "True Will" through the practice of magick (spelled with "k" at the end, it refers to the occult practice as opposed to slight of hand parlor tricks spelled "magic"). He founded his own Satanic religion called Thelema of which his The Book of the Law was their "Bible." Crowley gained widespread notoriety during his lifetime, being a recreational drug experimenter, bisexual and Satanist. He was banned from Italy in 1923, and described in the press as "the wickedest man in the world." (See Martin Booth,  A Magick Life: The Biography of Aleister Crowley,  London: Coronet Books [2000]). 

The Beatles propelled Crowley to fame, and many rock and pop stars became followers of his teachings as a result. In 1967, The Beatles released their album Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Heart's Club Band. The cover featured a montage of people; mostly the infamous. There are four Hindu gurus pictured along with the evil Crowley. Below is an image of the album cover with Aleister Crowley's picture highlighted.


Adolph Hitler was also supposed to be on the cover, but for reasons never fully made clear, his image was removed prior to the album's release. Lennon wasn't kidding when he wrote, "I've sold my soul to the devil."(See Ray Coleman Lennon, McGraw-Hill, 1984 ed., pg. 256). 

John Lennon
 Lennon was the most famous of The Beatles, and I remember clearly when he was murdered by a mentally disturbed man, Mark David Chapman, on December 8, 1980. I was in high school, and you would have thought it was the president being assassinated by the way everyone reacted. He was treated as some ersatz "martyr." There were candlelight services that were overflowing in NYC, and other places around the world. I remember people were crying because he was killed violently, yet believed in "peace and love." Needless to say, I do not advocate violence, and Chapman remains (rightfully) in prison over 27 years later. However, the idea of Lennon being some "love and peace" advocate and martyr is just plain lunacy. As we have already seen, Lennon used and promoted drugs, rejected God for paganism and admired Satanist Aleister Crowley. As if that were not bad enough, there's much more sinister things about him.

  • Lennon advocated for the rejection of God and Christianity.
In his song God, he claims not to believe in anything, which is itself a lie since he advocated for Hindu "gurus," and promoted the teachings of a libertine Satanist.  Here are the lyrics:

God is a concept
By which we measure
Our pain
I'll say it again
God is a concept
By which we measure
Our pain
I don't believe in magic
I don't believe in I-Ching
I don't believe in Bible
I don't believe in tarot
I don't believe in Hitler
I don't believe in Jesus
I don't believe in Kennedy
I don't believe in Buddha
I don't believe in mantra
I don't believe in Gita
I don't believe in yoga
I don't believe in kings
I don't believe in Elvis
I don't believe in Zimmerman
I don't believe in Beatles
I just believe in me
Yoko…

His song Imagine has been called "an atheist anthem."

Imagine there's no heaven
It's easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people
Living for today... Aha-ah...

Imagine there's no countries
It isn't hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion, too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace... You...

You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will be as one

Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world... You...

You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will live as one

  • Lennon admitted to being a wife beater
In his 1980 interview with porn rag Playboy, Lennon admitted, "...I used to be cruel to my woman, I beat her and kept her apart from the things she loved...I used to be cruel to my woman, and physically--any woman. I was a hitter. I couldn't express myself and I hit. I fought men and I hit women." He was also emotionally abusive and a dead-beat dad to his first son, Julian, who stated that Paul McCartney was more of a father to him than Lennon ever was.  

  • Lennon frequently lied about his life
Just some of his lies include claiming he was working class poor growing up when he was comfortably middle class. He said he left The Beatles over disputes with McCartney, when the truth was that he became unable to function from his heroin addiction. When he made a comeback before his murder, he said he was looking after his son, when in fact he had been in a drugged up stupor most of the time.

  • Lennon was an exhibitionist
He appeared completely naked with his second "wife," Yoko Ono (herself an occultist) on the album entitled Two Virgins. The photo is so pornographic it had to be censored by the record company.


  • Lennon's concubine, Yoko Ono, was deeply involved in paganism and astrology
"She seems to blend astrology, eastern philosophies, and mysticism into a meta-religious approach." (See  https://hollowverse.com/yoko-ono/). 

  • Lennon was the ultimate hypocrite
While claiming to believe in nothing but himself, he and The Beatles promoted pagan religion and a Satanist. The man who wanted us to "imagine no possessions" was a multi-millionaire. He was anti-war and denounced the United States for acts of violence while beating his wife Cynthia, emotionally abusing his son Julian, and on at least one occasion was filmed making fun of the physically-challenged. 

Conclusion
The Beatles began the evil trend in modern pop and rock music. John Lennon is still spoken about in hushed tones as some great man to be revered, or even a "martyr" for "love and peace." The truth is quite different. Lennon once claimed The Beatles were more popular than Christ. In that same interview, he said, "Christianity will go. It will vanish and shrink. I needn't argue about that; I'm right and I'll be proved right." Sorry, Mr. Lennon. You've gone to Judgement and now know the Truth. As much as your Hellish companions and you have tried (and as much success as you've had corrupting people and turning them away from God), we have Our Lord's promise, "...behold I am with thee all days, even to the consummation of the world " (St. Matthew 28:20), and "...the gates of Hell shall not prevail..." (St. Matthew 16:18). The One True Church shall remain long after your evil music is forgotten.

    The Beatles are treated like Gods to this day and it's becoming disturbing.

    1. It’s sickening how ill-informed people are in most matters. “Here Comes the Sun” “Let It Be,” and “My Sweet Lord” are played at the V2 sect for being “Christian.” Are they that culpably ignorant or that willfully evil?

  3. Introibo when the Beatles first came over in the early 60’s you had a phenomena of girls having what appear to be seizures at their concerts. So why in your opinion do you think people had Beatles mania?

    1. I think the “wholesome look” and innocent lyrics of the early songs (“I want to hold your hand” etc) and the different sound made them attractive at first. Then as they revealed who they were, the spirit of rebellion appealed to the base nature of humanity’s fallen nature. They wanted to rebel with their drugged out “heroes.” There is power in words. Singing “smoke pot, smoke pot,” will influence people and desensitize them to evil. Lastly, you can be sure that there were demonic influence to those who opened themselves to it by drugs, the occult and the other evils advocated by their music.
      That’s my take on “Beatlemania” Ryan!

  4. Terrific article!! I also get very upset when people think that Let It Be refers to the Blessed Virgin Mary. The Novus Ordoites, even if they knew the Beatles songs were not Christian wouldn’t care as everything is relative anyway in the NO.

    1. Thank you for the kind words my friend. I write this once a month series from my past research to let the world know that secular rock and pop music is evil to the core. Unfortunately, many people have been taken in by these musicians and the V2 sect not only refuses to condemn it, they actually embrace it!

  7. Everything in this post is accurate and it is a pity because the Beatles are great. I love music and am a musician myself. I doubt I will stop listening to Rock and I suppose neither will the majority of the readers here. Most of us grew up with it. I don't believe I will sin or go to hell but who knows for sure. I guess I'll find out when my life is over and I am judged. Anyways, good post Introibo.

    1. My Friend,
      Have you ever considered listening to Christian rock music? It's not Catholic, but it does uplift you and does not glorify the evil things of the world or promote Satanists like Crowley.

      Please consider it. There is power in words. The Christian rock does not overtly push Protestantism; those few songs that do can easily be avoided. Do not wait until Judgement to "see what happens." Do all you can to win the crown of Eternal Life! You're an intelligent person who knows the Truth. I'll be praying for you so that God will give you the grace and strength necessary to act upon it.

      God Bless you,

  8. Someone should do a study attempting to correlate the decline of the papacy beginning with the death of Pius XII in 1958, followed by Vatican II, with the simultaneous rise of rock music. It can't be a coincidence.

    1. Barbara,
      Brilliant minds think alike! I believe such a study would show a strong correlation—and I think it would be causation as far as I’m concerned. I wish I had the time to do it!

    2. Personally I think the decline of the papacy began in 1948 with the commission for liturgical change.(courtesy of Pius XII)
      It steadily increased and deteriorated in 1951 with the "new" "experimental" Holy Saturday Easter Vigil.
      1953 saw the obliteration of the cenruries old after midnight Holy Communion fast.
      1956 the entire venerable Apostolic Holy Week and Pentecost weekend.
      Pius XII began the destruction and we need to be honest about this instead of avoiding this subject.
      Even SSPX priests have stated that no one wants to talk about Pius XII.
      On a side note,Pius XII promoted Bp.Montini to Archbishop of Milan.
      This same post was held Bp.Ratti before being elected as Pius XI.
      Pius XII knew Bp.Montini was being promoted to a prominent post knowing full well of his modernist past.
      I personally pray for Pius XII soul as he has a great chance of being an infiltrator wrapped up in externals.
      To his credit,Pius XII was keenly aware of optics and took classic traditional looking pictures.

    3. Pope Pius XII has more going for him than nice pictures. This will be the subject of a whole post on its own. Suffice it to say for now that we may PREFER the Old Rites, but cannot reject the new ones of Pope Pius XII without rejecting his papacy. This puts someone in the “Vacancy Pusher” category I wrote about in my post, “The Source Of The Problem” a couple of weeks back.

      God Bless,

    4. It's possible Pius XII lost the chair of St.Peter at some point between 1951-1958.
      Thank Almighty God our chapel obeys the pre-1950 traditions.
