Stryper lit off the fundie anti-rock authors at the time, especially Jeff Godwin and Jimmy Swaggart. I think Swaggart was irate because between Amy Grant, Sandi Patti, Stryper, and the other youth-oriented "Inspirational music" chart toppers, his attempts to break into the CCM market was a minor disaster in the mid-'80s, hitting only the bottom third of Billboard's TOP INSPIRATIONAL ALBUMS chart. Amy Grant, Stryper, et al, raised the bar, the recoup the recording budget before break-even, on everyone that followed them.

Frankly, I'm AMAZED Stryper got any retail stocking in Christian bookstores during the '80s. Those mom & pop stores were REALLY TOUGH on public moral standards sold to their customers. I'm still looking for that recalled first cover on TO HELL WITH THE DEVIL vinyl Lp. The record label "updated" (watered down and re-recorded) the original YELLOW AND BLACK ATTACK EP.

Stryper most certainly did NOT start the Black Metal movement. Venom's album titled 'Black Metal' launched the genre in 1982, four years before 'The Yellow and Black Attack.' Anyone with access to Wikipedia could verify as much. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Black_metal

Stryper are a legendary Christian glam-rock band, famous for their yellow-and-black striped outfits. For those who regard 80s glam-rock as a joke, Stryper are an even bigger joke! But their music is not the worst thing to come out of that era, and the lyrics are pretty funny in their earnestness.
