Rock and roll kills rockers dead

Posted by on February 2 at 9:50 AM

That was the subject line on an email I got this morning from my partner Patrick, who sent me the link to this compassionate, Christlike site.

Jesus has a special hate-place for leukemia and MS victims.

I refute thee in two words: Keith Richards.

What about Elton Buttfuckin' John? That guy in the Who with the hair? David Bowie? David Crosby?

The table also neglects to list the biggest live fast, die young rock star death of them all: Jesus.

For being a Rock and Roll hating website, they list musicians I've never even heard of (and I spend my day filling my brain with useless pop-culture tivia).

I am glad to see that GG Allin made the list, although it would have been much better if he had gone the way he intended, a suicide on stage. "Bite it, You Scum," indeed.

That list is plagiarized from Greil Marcus. I think it can be found in Ranters and Crowd Pleasers. Isn't stealing a sin?

Trouble with these hate filled Bible thumping folks is that they forget that the Bible goes both way...

"There were some who pleased God and were loved by Him, and while living among sinners were taken up. They were caught up so that evil might not change their understanding, or guile deceive their souls" Wisdom of Solomon

I, for one, prefer my verse with it message of love, then that website's message of hate.

And for you unchurched, sorry for making you look at two Bible verses today (even though I am responsible for only one of them). Please forgive me.

I like where you can accept or reject jesus at the bottom. Reject him twice and learn about hell!

Poor Karen Carpenter is always forgotten from these lists..

OMG! Karen is there..!

Hell isn't good, Hell isn't good--it's Hell.

WTF--Nat King Cole qualifies as a "rocker"?

Great. Thanks!

This is the coolest La Cocina.
