Ridiculous Web site of the month, part 3
The page I've linked to appears to be part of a (mercifully) incomplete site called "History of Christian Metal." Perhaps it befits a band responsible for one of the worst record covers in the history of Christian rock, but this really is just about the most poorly written band biography I've ever run across. I could hardly bear to read it. Yet it manages to demonstrate the band members' naivete as well as the writer's lack of ability. See, the band used to be called Stryker, but a certain group of oversized bumblebees threatened to sue, claiming that the name was too similar to their own. So here's how Stryker became Stryken:
Joey didn't like the name of changing from a "r" to a "n" Steve and Dale felt God revealed this name to them but didn't reveal this to Joey. So they left the situation with God to reveal to Joey what name should be used. They felt if God was in the situation and unity was to abound, they left the situation with God and they waited on God to reveal Himself to Joey. They already had their answer from God and that the name for the band was to change to Stryken. Joey calls back to the members that night and says "It is to be Stryken" and from then on, everyone in the band new God was in control of the band.Of course, if you keep reading, it becomes apparent that if God is in control of the band, then He must be one of the most inept band managers ever.
There's another site devoted to this band, with, Lord help us all, some MP3 clips. In the interest of preserving what's left of my self-respect, I did not listen to them.
