“Clenched Fists, Black Eyes” The Prophetic Role of Anger and Lament in Popular Music
Mary McCampbell

In this session, Mary McCampbell examines the role of anger and lament in the music of The Sex Pistols, The Velvet Underground, Sonic Youth, Fugazi, The Psalters and Sufjan Stevens. McCampbell also explores whether a punk rock aesthetic/message can inform our theologies of worship as we ask the following questions: can musical dissonance be part of worship? Can verbal violence be prophetic?
