Pretty much everyone and anyone that has an internet connection or that has a friend who is a conspiracy theorist knows about the Illuminati. The once hush hush “secret” society isn’t much of a secret for those that believe in it and for those that are pointing out it’s direct influence in the entertainment industry. But for you that don’t know what the Illuminati is I’ll give you a wiki definition below.
The Illuminati (plural of Latin illuminatus, “enlightened”) is a name given to several groups, both real and fictitious. Historically, the name refers to the Bavarian Illuminati, an Enlightenment-era secret society founded on May 1, 1776. The society’s goals were to opposesuperstition, prejudice, religious influence over public life and abuses of state power, and to support women’s education and gender equality. The Illuminati—along with other secret societies—were outlawed by the Bavarian ruler, Charles Theodore, with the encouragement of the Roman Catholic Church, and were permanently disbanded in 1785. In the several years following, the group was vilified by conservative and religious critics who claimed that they had regrouped and were responsible for the French Revolution.
Ok thats a little run down of what the Illuminati was. But conspiracy theorist believe in a modern day Illuminati. This modern day Illuminati are constructed by very powerful men that have influence in world Government, Corporations and Entertainment. Basically from what I understand they want to control our thoughts, what we think, and how we choose to spend our money. Some conspiracy theorist go as far as to believe there is a Satanic relationship with the secret society (this is some Di Vinci code type sh*t).
Now to my point. It is obvious music is a huge influential among the people, I mean music is the universal language. So it is no surprise that many artists and bands have been tied to the Illuminati for various reason. It is believed by conspiracy theorists that this secret organization offers artists/bands success in return to be a herald for there New World Order message. These are 2 bands I believe would be in the Illuminati if it was indeed real.
Fall Out Boy
According to theorists out there Fall Out Boy are members of the secret society due to the symbolism in their videos and lyrics to their latest album “Save Rock and Roll.” Theorists believe that in their first single off of the album, My Songs know what you did in the dark, that Fallout Boy confesses their relationship with a darker power in the line :
“I’m in the details with the devil
So now the world can never get me on my level”
Fall Out Boy put out a video to every track on the Save Rock and Roll album called The Youngblood Chronicles. Honestly the videos do have a creepy feel, but you be the judge.
Paramore has been through a lot. I mean from their indie label days to being a world wide rock powerhouse Paramore has been through it all and is seeing the fruits of their labor, but is this fruit forbidden fruit? (lol im sorry, i thought that was a pretty clever way to end the sentence)
Anyway with the leaving of Zac and Josh Farro, siblings who were very open about their christianity, and the sudden blow up success of Paramore afterwards theorist believe this was only a part of the requirtment in their agreement with the Illuminati. Their are also early pictures of Paramore and front-lady Hayley Williams sporting various “all seeing eye” poses which is a staple brand for the Illuminati. There is also a very interesting blog about their song “Brick by Boring brick” that raises eyebrows about the relationship between the band and the secret society.
