In 2011, dubstep gained significant traction in the US market, by way of a post-dubstep style known as brostep, with the American producer Skrillex becoming something of a “poster boy” for the scene. (source)
“HOW IS THIS NOT #1? This is the best song by skrillex by a long shot. I’m not saying scary monsters is a bad song, but kill everybody is a million times better. Kill everybody just has that dance factor to it. It just makes you wanna get up and move around. Scary monsters in more of just a you listen to it. This is like a pump up song and a song you hear at the club combined in one!M+246
I hated dubestep. But then I heard ‘Kill Everybody’.. It is unbelievable. I can’t even explain adequately why I like it so much. Anyway… I still dislike 99% of dubestep. But a couple of tracks listed here have certainly changed my old person opinion of its possible merits “when done right! “M+112
Best song by him in my opinion
Perfect in all ways the bass drop is amazing
And when I got my beat for xmas I couldn’t wait to
Listen to it… It is amazing. Perfect in all waysM+121
Sick drop and is a hardcore dubstep song at its best. Should be 1 or 2.“
In the article, “Beyond Lies the Wub” that explains the history of Dubstep they state, “To call Skrillex just a DJ and producer is to miss the point. He’s a reflection of youth and the remix culture we live in.”
“I love all types of music,” Skrillex told Alex Chapman in 2010, “and when your platform of making music happens to be your computer, you tend to make music like dance music, and that’s kind of what I gravitated towards. I come from playing hardcore, and post-hardcore and screamo or whatever you want to call it. I always drew to the most aggro-sounding type of stuff, but then again to the melodic stuff as well.”
The first albums he ever bought were Marilyn Manson’s ‘Antichrist Superstar’ and Nine Inch Nails ‘’Broken’ EP.

“Marilyn Manson was born and grew up in Canton, Ohio where he attended an Episcopalian school.
His father was Catholic and his mother was an Episcopalian, so, as Manson puts it:
I sort of veered off into the watered-down version of Catholicism.1
Marilyn Manson was ordained to the Church of Satan, a self-described atheist organization, by founder Anton LeVay.2 He jokes that it isn’t a “real job” as he receives no money from the church.3‘ (source)
Moving back to our first subject-
The word on the internet is that the name, “Skrillex” is derived from the Latin word, “Skrillisus” which supposedly means; Homosexual Satan Wasp. But there is not much real proof out there aside from crazy “We see Illuminati Pyramids everywhere” blogs and websites. The only place that I found that made this “translation” was mymemory.translated.com and it doesn’t look that legit.
Skrillex, whose real name is Sonny John Moore, claims that it is just a nickname that his friends used to call him. But who knows.
His tattoo, (shown below) means, “OWSLA” – and it promotes dubstep music, clothing and such. This pictured below is a post where they are promoting a certain dubstep artist…
Yeah that? Do I need to explain this?
Also, the founder of the Church of Satan, Anton Levey was known for wearing this pentagram with a lightening bolt in the shape of an S. (See below)
You can also see it portrayed on Maryiln Mansons Cd in the photo above of his Album, Anti-Christ Superstar.
On the Skrillex main site, the S in his name looks A LOT like that lightening bolt but… maybe its just me? I’m not going to be one to point fingers without …. further proof? But, you can see for yourself, and judge for yourself. It is also the same S as the KISS rock band.
AND, the bolts were also used by the SS (Schutzstaffel (SS) of Nazi Germany), and is still commonly used in such fashion.
The Satanic clothing and merchandise website displays the same S in its logo.
AAAND here is Skrillex’s website..
Meh. Either way – all the facts are against Skrillex anyway when it comes to it being “good for Catholic’s.”
Dubstep; itself is (surprise!) not good. Health-wise and faith wise. Sue Brinkmann a Catholic, New Age and Occult expert had quite a bit to say about Dubstep in this article from the site, Women of Grace:
“Aside from using the music to put oneself into an altered state, the biggest danger by far with all forms of EDM is the dangerous drug use that occurs at its festivals and dance clubs.
This 2014 article by Fox News documents an alarming number of deaths and serious injuries occurring at EDM clubs and festivals such as the Electric Daisy Carnival in Las Vegas where a 24 year-old man died of an overdose of Ecstasy. At the same festival, 550 medical calls were made by concert-goers at the weekend event. In addition, there were 48 drug-related felony arrests.
In fact, it was the drug-related death of a 15 year-old girl in 2010 that caused the carnival to move from the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum to the Vegas Motor Speedway where it is held to this day.
In 2013, the final day of the Electric Zoo festival in New York was cancelled after two young fans died, four were hospitalized and 31 arrests were made.
Attendees freely admit that they like the music better when they’re taking drugs.
“For me [while listening to electronic dance music], the drug makes the music almost sound better,” said an 18-year-old from the New York area who admitted to taking the drug known as “molly” when attending concerts.
EDM music, and the drug-related subculture that has evolved around it should be concerning to parents especially because of the peer pressure toward drug-related activities that is likely to occur.”
This article from LAWeekly talks, half-jokingly about “How Dubstep Makes You Want to Kill People.”
“Why did the squeal of Jimi Hendrix’s guitar cause girls to practically claw their way onstage? Why does the Psycho-like intro to Tyler the Creator’s “Yonkers” inspire moshing? Why do furry-booted dubheads turn into a writhing mass during Skrillex’s drops?
Researchers working at UCLA think they’ve determined why humans respond so strongly to this stimulus. It’s because dissonance in music mimics distress cries in wild animals, which summons strong reactions. In other words, these artists literally bring out the animal in us.”
Just what lonely, miserable, lost and searching youths need… drugs… sex… music… giving up oneself to the moment… all you need is the devil and you’ve got yourself a cesspool of (shudder) terrible things.
In this article titled, “5 Ways Dubstep is Messing With Your Brain” they cite the 5 ways as such:
1. Dubstep Is Good For Your Health
Dubstep music increases levels of Serotonin, a neurotransmitter that is located in the body’s central nervous system, which has positive influences on the brain cells controlling mood, memory, appetite, learning and sleep functions. Dubstep’s low frequency sound waves enter your ear and convert into vibrations that send electrical signals that travel through the vestibulocochlear nerve and into your brain. Dubstep’s excitement factor and build up to the drop affect the fifty million brain cells connected to your body’s levels of serotonin. Health problems like anxiety or depression are a result of low levels of serotonin, spazzing out to a Skrillex track sends a steep rise in these levels, which serves as a remedy for mood and sleep disorders.
2. Dubstep Gets You High
Listening to dubstep is pretty much almost the same thing as taking drugs, no seriously. Dubstep activates pleasure and reward-related regions of the brain called the Dopamine system. Dopamine is a hormone and neurotransmitter that sends signals from our brain to other parts of the body. Dopamine affects our pleasure and reward-motivated behavior, but extreme dopamine activity can lead to addiction, yikes. Dopamine is mostly studied for the way its signals react to drugs like cocaine or amphetamine. But dopamine is important for more than just drugs, it’s also important for natural rewards like food, sports and even that feeling you get when you see a pretty girl walking down the street. Scientists have also found that the “chills” people get when listening to dubstep music was correlated with dopamine signals in this area of the body. So the next time the hair on your neck stands up from a sick bass drop, just know its Datsik running through your veins.
3. Dubstep Brings Out Your Animal Instincts
This just gives the terms party animal or beasting a whole new meaning. Researchers working at UCLA think they’ve determined why humans respond so strongly to dubstep as a stimulus. It’s because dissonance in dubstep music mimics distress cries in wild animals, which strikes a chord (pun intended) with our deep-seeded animal instincts. Dissonance in music are disruptive tones or what we hear as sharp, piercing noises. These sounds that add chaos to a dubstep production are similar to the sounds made by animals when they are crying or in danger. A team of scientists working with composers have found that the aural characteristics of the cries of distressed animals captures human attention and have an effect on our emotions when hearing certain sounds. So the next time you see a guy howling at a rave, you might want to take a couple steps back.
4. Dubstep Will Make You Flunk Exams
Teachers and parents are gonna love this one. University of Wisconsin physiologists conducted a study measuring the effects of classical music vs. dubstep music on students while taking a reading comprehension test. The results found that reading comprehension performance was positively affected by classical music and negatively affected by dubstep music. The tests used to measure cognitive ability were practice SAT reading comprehension tests. Analysis of the data collected revealed that there is significant effect of music genre on reading comprehension test scores. So if you’re the type that likes to blast their music while studying, make sure its some bass heavy Bach or Beethoven.
5. Dubstep Turns You Into Consumer Zombies
We already learned that dubstep induces heightened sensations and drug-like experiences. What we didn’t discuss yet is how hypnotic it can be and how it puts us in a trance-like state. Dubstep is a communication tool that allows each person in a crowd of 100,000 to feel connected and understand a language they cannot articulate, this makes an imprint on your brain and becomes part of your identity. Television advertisers realize this and are using dubstep in their commercials as a way to use the dubstep sound to persuade you to purchase their products. As in all television ads, the product is presented as something you have to have. But with the added element of your favorite dubstep track, the products in these ads are projecting the idea that they are also part of your personal identity. The advertisers hope that consumers will identify with their product like some identify with dubstep cultures, and hope their product gives you an experience that is just as powerful as the music. Without the accompaniment of dubstep, these products would not stand out to you, but with the guidance of dubstep they gain more appeal and importance. So the next time you buy laundry detergent, make sure its because you haven’t washed your jeans in three weeks and not because Diplo said so.”
To be honest…. there isn’t much that I have to write in this article after citing these facts and the lyrics above – if you are able to put two and two together.
All I see in the face of this person (Skrillex) is a poor soul that is in desperate need of prayers. Perhaps there are those who portray him as “the devils tool to damn souls to hell, dancing away to his dubstep music.” Which may be true but, we probably will never truly know. We must base all things on the facts. And the facts don’t look so great either… yikes.
What we DO KNOW is that his music is terribly VIOLENT, it promotes drugs, violence, whatnot. And the industry of dubstep music is NOT something that we as Catholics should be getting into.
As it is past 2 am, and I have cited quite a bit of information… I leave it to you, dear reader to “put two and two together”, as hopefully you will come up with the same conclusion as I; that Skrillex is – just not good – and is something that should be avoided. It is certainly not honoring God, and is, in fact, aiding and inciting the violence and terribly sinful lifestyle that the youth are so susceptible to nowadays! There are so many lonely, lost and confused kids out there that just want to find someone that seems to understand them – to find a source that helps channel their angers,frustrations, angst… loneliness. Being part of something this big makes them feel – home? Even if HOME doesn’t feel like Home.
Pray to Our Blessed Lady to keep yourself and your loved ones under her mantle. Learn the faith, Trust in God, and have HOPE that He loves each and every one of us, and that we need not do much for His mercy to pour down on us (and even those such as Skrillex and his poor fans). We must pray to Him that we have true contrition for our sins, that we go to confession regularly, and receive Holy Communion as often as possible. He is there waiting for us to tell Him how much we love Him, and for us to tell Him our little troubles…. and He would certainly love it if you ask Him to have mercy on the poor souls who have no one to pray for them (Trust me.)
“So many souls go to HELL (for eternity.) because they have no one to pray and make sacrifices for them!” (Our Lady of Fatima)
Will you stand up and fight for souls?
Alright, that’s all for now. Its 2:13 am and I can’t even type correctly anymore (*thank God for auto-correct!) I’m pretty much typing with crossed-eyes so… I gotta go now.
Goodnight! — er — morning!
Until next time, God bless ❤
