This book shows how popular rock songs exemplify religious themes even though it is viewed as being sinful. This volume introduces readers to themes in world religions by studying lyrics and musical motifs from popular rock songs. Carl Olson came up with this idea as a pedagogical technique to interest first year college students in religious studies. It definitely worked as the number of students enrolled in his classes grew immensely with the development of this course. These are ideas spawned from lectures and in class discussions with students. Olson means this text to be used at an introductory level. Students will gain an appreciation for how themes have seeped into contemporary popular music as well as the unflappable influence of religion upon mainstream culture.
