A 1980s Christian investigative report linking rock music and suicide. Lots of criticism of Boy George, AC/DC, Mick Jagger, transvestites, drugs, sex, satanism, etc. Many great moments, especially their description of the time they tried to shut down a Prince concert.
“Youth Suicide Fantasy,” a perfect encapsulation of the logic-free heavy metal hysteria that shook parents in the 1980s. Shot on video, this half-hour jawdropper presents two brothers plugging their book, Why Knock Rock, while bashing such acts as Motley Crue, Prince, KISS (whose name gets a funny explanation here countering the usual Knights in Satan’s Service myth), AC/DC, the Rolling Stones (with a young, crotch-grabbing shot of Jagger offered as proof of his decadence), and several no-name bands. Of course, it’s all really a platform to attack such diverse targets as bondage, homosexuality, and pornography; the last of these gets the silliest attacks, with these guys claiming the most popular commercial erotica these days involves abused children and animals. The mind reels.
