Ghost B.C.

If you're going to rebel, you might as well rebel big. "Our music is about the presence of the Antichrist," says one member of the anonymous Swedish metal group Ghost B.C. The band plays doomy, operatic music disguised as hooded Nameless Ghouls while masked lead singer Papa Emeritus II dresses up like a satanic pope. "He's Don Corleone, Dracula, Freddie Mercury and Hitler in one person," says one Ghoul. This year, they led a Facebook campaign to get him elected as Pope Benedict XVI's replacement. Adds the Ghoul, "He got more votes than the actual pope."
