Title supplied by cataloger.; Photograph included in the Exhibit: From Pop to the Pit, The LAPL Photo Collection Celebrates the L.A. Music Scene, 1978-1989. A thrash metal band from Orange County, Slayer has attracted tremendous negative attention over the years from its depiction of satanic rituals and violence both lyrically and visually, causing a backlash of outrage from retail stores, religious groups and the mainstream public. Despite their notoriety, Slayer has released ten studio albums, four of which went gold. They have won two of five nominated Grammy awards. Photograph caption dated March 19, 1984 reads, "Heavy metal group Slayer's lyrics include lines like, 'Hold high his name we must. ... In Lord Satan we trust." From left to right, Kerry King, Dave Lombardo, Jeff Hanneman and Tom Araya.
