Snakes of Christ by Danzig
Album: Danzig II: LucifugeReleased: 1990
In a press release to promote the Danzig II: Lucifuge album, band leader and singer Glenn Danzig said of this song: "The Catholics and the Baptists have perverted the teachings of Christ. Worshiping their version of Christ could be considered by some to be as bad as worshiping Satan."
Glenn Danzig has on more than one occasion angrily pointed out the similarity between the main riff of "Sex Type Thing
" by the Stone Temple Pilots (released in 1992) and "Snakes of Christ" (released in 1990). (thanks, Travis - Waterloo, NY)
