How Rock Music and Religion Work Together. People like to think that there’s no interest in religion and rock music working together, but that may be just opinions. Talking specifically about Russian rock, many tend to see rock as anti-religious. A lot of Christians have certainly opposed rock music due to its heavy metal and loudliness, but there has been an attempt to use rock to attract the younger generation using this style of music. To this, we can conclude that although rock music can be loud and heavy metal, it can definitely bring individuals towards religion with substantive topics and lyrics.
