Apocalypse Soon Book Excerpt:

Religion has always played a special role in the life of the United States. This has been true at Puritan times and it is still true today. Apocalypse Soon? charts the sometimes open, sometimes hidden connections between US popular culture and religion. The book's essays offer a closer look on a wide variety of cultural phenomena that reach from Puritan millennialism to George Bush's appeal to the Christian right, from Marilyn Manson's Antichrist Superstar to the Christian metal band Saviour Machine, and from TV series like Family First, Dead Like Me, and Lost, to Christian diet and chastity programs.

Dissecting Marilyn Manson Book Excerpt:

In Dissecting Marilyn Manson, author Gavin Baddeley performs a cultural autopsy upon Manson, examining the seminal influences and psychotic sources that have gone into making him the Frankenstein monster that he is today. With its heavily visual approach, the text and pictures create the impression of a pathological scrapbook, emphasising the idea of the performer being put under the knife, exploring the Manson mythos in an irreverent but authoritative manner. Each chapter exposes one gruesome angle after another, gradually revealing just what makes Marilyn Manson tick and why so many find him so compelling. Dissecting Marilyn Manson offers the legion of dedicated Manson fans an alternative look into his macabre and twisted world. This revised and updated edition continues dissecting up to the present day, analysing recent developments in Manson’s professional and private life, including his recent high-profile court case, marriage to fetish model Dita Von Teese, and creative forays into the worlds of art and film.

Rock Brands Book Excerpt:

Rock Brands: Selling Sound in a Media Saturated Culture, edited by Elizabeth Barfoot Christian, explores how different genres of popular music are branded and marketed today. The authors provide research explaining how established mainstream artists and bands, from Christian heavy metal bands to Kanye West to Marilyn Manson, are continuing to market themselves in an ever-changing technological world, and how such bands can use integrated marketing communication to effectively 'brand' themselves to prevent technology and delivery changes from stifling their success. Rock Brands further addresses the use of religious and political words and images to gain an audience, as well as the latest technological influences of gaming, reality television, and social networking websites.

Music in Youth Culture Book Excerpt:

Music in Youth Culture examines the fantasies of post-Oedipal youth cultures as displayed on the landscape of popular music from a post-Lacanian perspective. Jan Jagodzinski, an expert on Lacan, psychoanalysis, and education's relationship to media, maintains that a new set of signifiers is required to grasp the sliding signification of contemporary 'youth'. He discusses topics such as the figurality of noise, the perversions of the music scene by boyz/bois/boys and the hysterization of it by gurlz/girls/grrrls. Music in Youth Culture also examines the postmodern 'fan (addict)', techno music, and pop music icons. Jagodzinski raises the Lacanian question of 'an ethics of the Real' and asks educators to re-examine 'youth' culture.

dc Talk s Jesus Freak Book Excerpt:

Late in the Reagan years, three young men at Jerry Falwell's Liberty University formed the Christian rap group dc Talk. The trio put out a series of records that quickly secured their place at the forefront of contemporary Christian music. But, with their fourth studio album Jesus Freak (1995), dc Talk staked a powerful claim on the worldly market of alternative music, becoming an evangelical group with secular selling power. This book sets out to study this mid-90s crossover phenomenon-a moment of cultural convergence between Christian and secular music and an era of particular political importance for American evangelicalism. Written by two queer scholars with evangelical pasts, Jesus Freak explores the importance of a multifarious album with complex ideas about race, sexuality, gender, and politics-an album where dc Talk wonders, “What will people do when they hear that I'm a Jesus freak?” and evangelical fans stake a claim for Christ-like coolness in a secular musical world.

Rock Band Name Origins Book Excerpt:

This book details the origins of the names of 240 musical acts, focusing on the most popular groups (and a few individual performers) from the 1960s through today. Even casual music fans will recognize almost all of the acts discussed. A few one-hit wonders are included simply because their name is so unusual (Mungo Jerry, for example) that they warrant a place in the study. Each entry focuses on the meaning and/or origin of the act's name, what it had been called previously, and any other names that were considered and rejected during the naming process. Also included are facts and figures about the act's history and place in the rock music pantheon, the year the act was formed, the names of original members and later members of note and the act's best known hit. The book lists bands alphabetically to give the casual reader the opportunity to open it to any page and read at leisure, the historian the ability to easily pinpoint the subject of his or her research, or the die-hard rock fan the chance to learn from A to Z the name origins of the biggest acts in rock and pop music history.

Into The Light Of Darkness Book Excerpt:

Spiritual fear is common place in mainstream religious thought. The fear of sin, hell, or even the Devil himself. But have you ever wondered, questioned, or doubted the very foundations upon which you stand? In this rapidly changing world, people are waking up from their spiritual slumber to find that much more lies beyond the borders of mainstream religious thought. Veiled in the guise of evil sin, and hoarded by the very opponents of darkness, knowledge and spiritual refinement lie just beyond the horizon of perception. As creatures of creation it is our birthright to question, to seek, and to recreate the world around us each day as we slowly remember who we truly are. The endless cycles of sin and forgiveness are holes in the hull of salvation that may sink a floundering ship. For many, as that ship sinks on one side of the fence, a flaming Phoenix will rise from the ashes on the other; we only need to face our fears of the unknown. This is the story of such a journey, and rebirth.
