ok, i have to say:

the "satanic" imagery in sonic youth's lyrics come largely from thurston's catholic upbringing, it's obvious, every person, or at least rocker, who was brought up this way can't escape this (much like geezer butler's lyrics in black sabbath, who are commonly referred to as satanists. in fact, at some point in his life, butler wanted to become a priest but changed his opinions on a lot of the things in the religion).

also, the band uses this imageries because it's a long standing tradition of a certain strain of rock bands to adopt this, to look mean or sinister. sonic youth belongs to a certain category of bands who are more intellectual and, almost as a consensus, reject the trappings of the more mainstream and clichd rock bands. sonic youth, both to separate themselves from their peers (like they always do) and to acknowlegde their influences (like sabbath, alice cooper, kiss, bowie, the classic 70's hard rock thing; not to mention the metal they are into, like venom or celtic frost), use the satan mentions in their lyrics.

also, it is funny that a serious band, accepted by avant guardists and the rock literatti, can have satanic lyrics. they are not supposed to do it.

but I think desiring demons to visit you in the night doesn't reflect a love of life, but rather a love of satan.

or maybe just a poetic representation of something entirely different? Anyway, if they are satanists, i hope coco leads the cult trend eventually.

I'm not saying that's why Thurston wore the shirt...just offering a possibility.

But yeah, that is odd. I hope the band answers the Satanic question when they start answering board questions... it might be fun and slightly provocative!

no, I wasn't aware of that Anglican church reference. I just though of Thurston's provocative intent (which is likely anyway)

If any of you had read Dancing With Demons: The Music's Real Master by Jeff Godwin (like I have), then you would know that ALL rock music is used by Satan to lure kids away from the Lord.

Anyone want me to post some passages?

It was published by Chick Publications in 1988. Chick are those guys that make the chick tracts.

There is a difference between being a satanist and having an interest in the subject, i think its just a curiousity like alot of subject matter can be in a lyrical context. Don't dig to deep into the meaning of those lyrics are you'll be easily strayed in the wrong direction... to do this would seem to be a very gullible and illogical process.

lets try to be a little more sensical and realistic than just asking questions like, "are SY satanists?"... its like "oh please..."

i need not to go on any further...

assblaster,

how about you describe your religious leanings so we can ascertain why you are asking this question (and pushing it so hard)
otherwise, most will think you are a troll trying to start an argument (or worse, trying to convert us to whatever religion it is that you belong to)

thanks

I'm supporting Assblaster here. It's not a thought I've ever had, it seems like there's a possiblity of it not being a merely capricious one.

And to be fair, I think it's very poor show to criticise people for starting banal or irellevant threads when that's what 99% of the threads around here are.

While I don't necessarily care about the subject matter, or think it's important, I think it's pretty idiotic to criticise one persons interest for being stupid or trolling when there's a million other posts from more tenured boardies which are as banal as this one may be (but isn't to my mind).

There, rant over. Go Assblaster.

Yeah, anyone is free to jump to whatever ridiculous conclusion s/he likes, and we are free to ridicule the ridiculous.
Thanks for the fodder!
