Mylo – Destroy Rock & Roll

Destroy Rock & Roll” is a song by British electronic musician Mylo. It was released as the second single from his debut album of the same name. Produced by Mylo, the song samples the recording “Invocation for Judgement Against and Destruction of Rock Music”, by religious organization Church Universal and Triumphant. Samples from the recording make up the entirety of the song’s vocal track, which explicitly lists several popular 1980s musicians and bands. The track peaked at #15 on the UK Singles Chart, and also reached the top 40 on the Finnish singles charts.

The song’s accompanying music video depicts Mylo in a large white room spraying graffiti art depicting symbols, pictures, or the names of the artists mentioned on the track.

All perversions of the third eye
through distorted and exaggerated images,
perverted movements of the body and breakdancing,
and other forms of dancing,
and we especially call for the judgement in this hour
and the destroying of rock music directed
specifically against children
through the videos that were portrayed,
and working specifically through these individuals,
for whom we call for
the judgement of the sacred fire of this hour,
before the throne of almighty god,
