"Antichrist" and "the Devil" are not synonyms. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antichrist You might want to go with "Satan" instead.

More recent things are always going to score higher than all but the absolute most famous older stuff. That's not a value judgment, just that most people are more familiar (or at least can more readily bring to mind) more recent stuff.

It is. The Sabbath is and always has been Saturday for every Abrahamic religion. Sunday, for Christian's, is the Lord's Day. Not the Sabbath. Because Jews prohibited doing work on the Sabbath (Saturday), and Christians go to church on Sunday and therefore Sunday became a common day off from work in Christian countries, many Christians were confused into conflating the two things. But Sunday is not the Sabbath Day. Never has been. Not in any religion or denomination.

Before some confused Christian comes along and tries to argue with me as always- If you want to know why Sunday is holy for Christians it's because of the resurrection story.

Jesus was crucified on a Friday. The Jews had to cut down his body and bury him quickly because it was almost Saturday (the Sabbath) and they can't do work on the Sabbath. This is why Jesus was buried very nearby the spot where he was crucified, and not on the Mount of Olives (visit the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, the two spots are within 20 seconds walking distance). So.. he was buried on Friday, to avoid doing work on the Sabbath (Saturday), and.. on the third day (Sunday) he rose from the dead. This is why Sunday is holy to Christians. It has nothing to do with it being the Sabbath (it's not).

Who is this Chris Rea people keep bringing up? I too thought of Road to Hell for that question, but I was thinking of Bruce Dickinson. Even so, I quickly realized the AC/DC song was much more likely and got the answer.
