* AsTheGoodBookSays: Nearly every song contains some paraphrase of a Bible passage. And in case anyone don't get the reference, the reference was always printed above the lyrics in the liner notes. In one instance, lack of familiarity with [[http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Romans+6:6&version=KJV Romans 6:6 in the King James Version]] made it impossible to understand that the song is [[IThoughtItMeant not about a man killing his father]]. Never ones to shy away from controversy, these guys.

Being the first major band to introduce rock music to a culture known for being largely hostile to it, they were no strangers to controversy, including the predictable accusations from MoralGuardians that they were hiding Satanic messages in their songs. They fired right back in 1982 with a prominent back-masked message at the start of the song ''Judas' Kiss'' (when played backwards, the message says, "What are you looking for the devil for when you ought to be looking for the Lord?"), and in 1985 with the bitingly satirical "Witch Hunt", which accuses their critics of caring more about stamping out things they are suspicious of than actually spreading the Gospel. Eventually they outlived the criticism and went on to win many awards, including four Grammys for Best Rock Gospel Album.
