The Hymn Society's Facebook page yielded a link to an interesting blog challenge: Church Hymn or Metal Song? You Tell Us. Give it a shot, even if Metal's not your communion beverage of choice.

I had no idea that so many of those incomprehensible headbanger lyrics were concerned with God!

An old friend of mine was charged with arranging her grandmother's funeral. An organist was required, so she hired a friend of hers, a heavy metal musician called Animal. He knew 3 hymns, and played them through a couple of times, then started "Churching Up" some of his favorite tunes. I believe Grandma was played out of the church to one of Mick Jagger's songs. Most of the congregation found it very moving.
