1. a notorious hit song from a famous album from the late Sixties by the legendary Rolling Stones. It briefly describes humanity's history of violence and lust for power and wealth from the point-of-view of Satan, AKA "the Devil" among other names. The title comes from a book written earlier in the 20th Century. Many bands such as U2 and Guns 'N' Roses have covered this song live in concert.

2. a term used to describe something (like a story) from the viewpoint or perspective of someone infamous or evil. The villian's side of the story, or at least how he/she sees or experiences it.
1. Allow me to introduce myself
I'm a man of wealth and taste...

When I saw the Rolling Stones in concert in 1997 they performed many hits, including "Symphony For The Devil". A great show. See them before they drop dead on the stage.

2. When the Star Wars movie The Phantom Menace was in the cinemas during the spring of 1999, a reviewer featured in a local alternative press weekly paper stated that the film was based largely on the life story of Anakin Skywalker who would later become the infamous villian Darth Vader later on. The critic referred to this by saying "now it's sympathy for the devil time".

3. the media (especially network TV) gave a buttery and rosy summary of the career of a certain politician who died that day. He had made a strong legacy and track record of arrogance, hatred, ignorance, bigotry, bullying, trying to force his views on America by methods such as trying to force censorship against everything he didn't like, and so on. The media presented him as some sort of "country gentleman" but I remember how he tried to use the U.S. Constitution as toilet paper. I guess it was sympathy for the devil time now. But I remember his hateful scornful attitude and I say he was an enemy of democracy and he can BURN IN HELL.

a hard-to-classify group of bands and performers who laid the foundation for and inspired punk rock's development in the mid-1970s. These acts sported tough guy looks, rebellious attitudes, the longest hair in the neighborhood, sometimes simple 3-chord arrangements and/or feedback and garage band aesthetics. Some of these acts were called "punk rock" by critics in the late 60s and early 70s. That label later was applied to later bands of the mid-70s, starting with the Ramones. Elvis Presley may be the original "proto-punk" rocker. He wore denim and leather, wore his hair long for the 50s, swiveled his hips provacatively, rode motorcycles, sneered when he sang, and more. The term "proto-punk" wasn't used until after punk itself came into its own.

a son of Bob Marley who is a reggae superstar in his own right. He performed with his brother Stephen and 2 sisters in the Melody Makers in the 20th century and now is on his own, as is all the other Melody Makers. He is true to his legendary father's legacy.
I saw Ziggy Marley and the Melody Makers as an opening act for the B-52s in 1990, as an opener for Midnight Oil in 1993 and as a headlining act in 1998. It was great Caribbean rock'n'roll and good vibes each time. See Ziggy Marley for top-quality reggae.

a country song by Lee Greenwood from the '80s. Bombastic to begin with, it was used by those stupid armchair warriors who cheered the Persian Gulf war of 1991 while watching it happen on the damn TV while swilling beer. These dumbfuckcretinshave never served in the Armed Forces, they don't know what it's like to be serving the country with the possibility of danger coming at any time - they think war is a spectator sport, a game. They think that anyone who isn't caught in the "spirit" of the "game" is "unpatriotic". It's the same old fucking shit now, only MUCH worse. This song is now used as a rallying anthem for all the fascist stupidshit dumbass jingoistic warmonger bastardassholes who rah-rah the war like cheerleaders (they call that "supporting the troops", then they don't want to pay for treatment for the disabled veterans that come home alive). This song is now for idiots of the highest degree who can't think for themselves. They are dumber than animals.
Anthony drives to work everyday with a Lee Greenwood CD playing in his car. The disc player is set to repeatly play "God Bless the U.S.A.". He also has a yellow ribbon on the car attenna and the rear bumper is festooned with "patriotic" bumper stickers that childishly slam all those who oppose the Iraq war and celebrates it. He thinks it's all a game, he watches the news every day just to see how many "towel heads" were killed that day. "God Bless the U.S.A." is his favorite song of all time and cheering the war like the spectator he is - that's his life.

a very long beard that grows for years without ever being cut. Guitarist Billy Gibbons and Dusty Hill of the band ZZ Top both sport this type of beard, way down past their bellies. They've been growing them out since 1974 if not before. In the 80s they were offered millions of dollars by a razor company if they'd shave the beards off. They declined. Their famous facial hair made the band notorious when they made those videos for the album "Eliminator". Ironically ZZ Top drummer Frank Beard has no beard, he's usually clean-shaven.
That Vietnam vet who ferries a go-cart service at the Veterans Administration clinic parking lot has a ZZ Top beard.
