Golding's book about the fall of society and how humans are really animals at heart and when all rules are removed, the "beast" is let loose. The book is full of metaphors, For example the title "The Lord of The Flies" means Satan. The title was originally "Strangers From Within" this again represents how fragile human society is and how different we all are when we rules are removed. There is a lot of mention in the book to the "beast" this again is just another form of satan and how he can corrupt man- eventually making the character Jack to go mad and lead the rest of the tribe to kill Simon and Piggy and attempt at killing Ralph.
Notes on characters-
Simon= he understands whats going on and attempts to stop it. This leads to his death.
Jack-the leader of the "tribe" he goes mad attempting to destroy the beast-which leads to him becoming the beast incarnate.

Frequently misunderstood and misapplied as a term, goth rock is an offshoot of post-punk that existed primarily during the early to mid 80s. Its reputation as the darkest and gloomiest form of underground rock is largely deserved, though today that reputation stems more from the visual style of its bands and black-clad followers. Sonically, goth rock took the cold synthesizers and processed guitars of post-punk and used them to construct sorrowful and often epic soundscapes. Early on, its lyrics were usually introspective and intensely personal, but its poetic sensibilities soon led to a taste for literary romanticism, morbidityor things like religious symbolism. Goth rock was generally not a critically acclaimed style, given its penchant for relentlessly mournful dirges, and melodramatic excess. However, it spawned a devoted, still-thriving subculture that kept its aesthetics alive long after the music's initial heyday had passed. The godfathers of goth-rock were British post-punkers Joy Division, whose bleak, remote, obsessively introspective music and lyrics laid the initial foundation for goth. But for all intents and purposes, the true birth of goth rock was "Bela Lugosi's Dead," the 1979 debut single by Bauhaus. Already chilly post-punk outfits like the Cure and Siouxsie & the Banshees became full-on goth bands around the same time, and their heavy, menacing makeup and dark clothes became an important part of their fans' expression. As goth rock's popularity spread among a certain segment of sensitive, alienated youth (first in the U.K., where most of its bands came from, then in the U.S.), its fashion sense grew more and more outlandish, and the original sound evolved somewhat.
The Cure, Siouxsie & the Banshees, and the Mission UK incorporated more pop and alternative elements in their music, while the Sisters of Mercy, Fields of the Nephilim, and the American band Christian Death took a heavier, sometimes metal-influenced approach. By the end of the '80s, the original goth-rock movement had ceased to exist, but the music mutated into new forms and continued to influence many of rock's darker subgenres. During the '90s, the goth sound began to cross-pollinate with industrial music, producing hybrids that appealed to both sides, as well as the darkwave subgenre The latter half of the '90s also saw goth rock's influence cropping up all over heavy metal; a new breed of progressive black metal bands drew heavily from goth's sound and style, while some alternative metal bands also borrowed from goth rock's visual imagery (including Marilyn Manson, who - despite countless news reports to the contrary - is not a goth-rock artist).

an early British Punk Band, Not the 1st however, the Ramones were the 1st proper punk band, many before the Ramones and Sex Pistols set the aesthetic for punk (bands like the Stooges) but the Sex Pistols really brought punk rock to the United Kingdom. Possibly the british band with the most banned songs/albums ever. Their 1st single "Anarchy in the UK" is possibly one of the best punk songs. Ever. and the controversial "God save the Queen" remains a punk classic.
God save the queen, and her fascist regime, she made you, a moron, into a potential H-bomb!
