Dear Christian friends,
Tonight I’d like to expose the evil of blues music to all of you. Many people think that blues is a wholesome form of music useful for expressing the true inner feelings of the human soul. This is a patent lie. Blues music is nothing but sin, and spawns sinful behaviors. Let’s consider some examples for starters.
First, we have Chuck Berry talking about playing with his ding-a-ling. This is a clear reference to the act of masturbation. This is sinful in the worst of ways:
Next, let’s look at Robert Johnson, who tried to sell his soul to Satan himself, talking about having a hell-hound on his trail. This is a clear reference to some sort of demonic presence chasing him. Here’s the track:
That track was released in the 1930s. Is Satan still present in blues music today? Of course! Check out this piece I found posted on the Reddit and the soundcloud today. This is from the description ” [l]ove the feel of this thing; you can almost hear the devil crawling out of the depths at the bottom of the track to devour your soul.” And the track actually does sound kind of demonic, and definitely sinful. There are no lyrics, but the guitar playing on it reeks of sin:

Now back to the classics. Also in blues, we have John Lee Hooker talking about drinking bourbon, scotch, and beer. The consumption of alcohol is clearly a sin unless we are drinking wine at church in remembrance of the sacrifice Christ made for all of us. Here is the song:
And just listen to Buddy Guy leaking sex into the microphone! This is pure and total sin!
And who can forget Ray Charles’ What I’d Say? The song is pure evil. It both mocks gospel music and has Ray Charles trying to mimic what he describes as “the sweet sounds of love.” This is pure sinful smut:
In this next track, BB King tells us that nobody loves him but his mother. Obviously BB does not know Jesus or our Heavenly Father, or he would never say this!
In this final track, we have Stevie Wonder and Stevie Ray Vaughan singing a song about superstition. Stevie Ray Vaughan was sinful, drank alcohol, and did drugs. And he constantly recorded Godless blues music. He is surely in hell. So want to be superstitious? Join Stevie in hell.
So the next time you want to think about listening to blues music, think again. Blues will only lead you deep into sin.
Yours in Christ,
