** "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gE-Bs32Alyc Damien]]": [[VillainProtagonist Damien himself]], from the song based on ''Film/TheOmen'', is as wicked as his film counterpart. Having always known of [[TheAntiChrist his dark roots]], Damien, "when the boy becomes a man", paves the way for [[HellOnEarth the apocalypse]] and for [[{{Satan}} his father]]'s minions to pave the way to famine, destruction, and corruption, to show mankind what Hell really means until humanity exists no more.
