In 2008, Rick Santorum said that Satan was destroying America through, among other things, rock concerts.
We all know that the nation is full of demented zealots like Santorum — you can find them in cults, in private militias and in churches throughout the land. What's surprising, and frightening, is that there are enough demented zealots in the Republican party to make one of their own the frontrunner for the Republican nomination for President, at least in current national polls.
In 1971, Levon Helm, a member of The Band, sang in the concert recorded and released as Rock Of Ages:
Some people like to say
It's the Devil in my soul
But that a bunch of shit,
I just want to rock and roll.
