Sin Destroyers - Gift to the World
December 21, 2006 5:14 PM   Subscribe

Gift to the World (youtube) Tongue firmly in cheek is the modus operandi of the Sin Destroyers (on mefi previously here) a band best summed up in this press quote, “If Iron Maiden had attended Catholic school, this would be their garage band”. I’m not sure what series of decisions led to the formation of a parody Christian rock band, but the results are pretty damn funny (and rockin’). Dig on their holiday offering, Gift to the World. If you’re feeling particularly pious today, you might skip this one. (via)

Not as funny as Stryper but I'll give an A for effort.

Is this a Parker/Stone joint? I don't think it's earnest christian rock when they refer to the crucifixion as a myth in the lyrics.

I'm looking for something a little more edgy. . . and NO I'm not pious.

mullingitover: I think you missed the "parody" bit before the words "Christian Rock Band".

Nice clip, pelican. I'm certainly feeling fesxtive now.

Very fun and delightfully blasphemous. I like the Byzantine angel choir style in the animation.

Erm, I meant to put that x in "festive", btw. Just putting the cross back in the season so Jesus doesn't explode me into a present.

rocked. Now what we need is a Christian Death Metal band.

Simpson's did it.

LOL. Now where is our pious contingent to decry the blasphemy and proclaim that Christians are persecuted in America?
