They stalked her. They choked her. They stabbed her. And after she was dead, they raped her. The 1995 murder of 15-year-old Elyse Pahler was inspired in part, one of her killers told police, by the heavy-metal music of Slayer--a popular band that specializes in misogynistic songs depicting torture and satanic sacrifice. The teenage murderers confessed to the killing years ago and are serving long prison terms. But for the victim's family, the case is not closed.

IN the new music video for "Work It Out," a song from backpacker rap quintet Jurassic 5 featuring Dave Matthews, a presidential jog through downtown Los Angeles lampoons George W. Bush and sends up a grab bag of social woes to make sly political commentary. The video's Dubya impersonator -- Timothy Bottoms from the short-lived Comedy Central sketch show "That's My Bush!" -- bumbles through various urban scenarios, blissfully unaware he is making matters worse whenever he tries to help.

January 13, 1991 | JONATHAN GOLD, Jonathan Gold writes for The Times about pop music and food.
A concert by the thrash/speed/death-metal band Slayer can be the most compelling spectacle in rock 'n' roll. Or at least the scariest. Take their show at the Hollywood Palladium in 1987. Roadies dragged two huge metal crosses onto the stage--and you finally realized that the crew was not going to tilt them right-side up.
