What did the Anglican, the Baptist, and the Orthodox say?

"Lets start a band!"

We (a multiple-denominational group of hydraulics engineers) were lamenting that all the good heavy metal bands have lyrics that we find uncomfortable listening to as Christians.  There are Christian heavy metal bands, but they're just not very good.

So I said it. 

I would do drums, Orthodox would be guitar, and Baptist would do vocals.  But then the rows started.  Orthodox said he should do vocals because Baptist's sweet female voice would be unsuitable to heavy metal.  Baptist wanted to do the head banging, since she has long hair while Orthodox is bald and I am 'follically challenged'.  And also we began to realise that none of us has any musical skill, and none of us has any time or interest to devote to the project.

And so, what might have been an amazing new musical explosion, came to nothing in a puff of apathy.
