Agents of Fortune

Redirected from Agents Of Fortune

Agents of Fortune is a 1976 (see 1976 in music) heavy metal album by Blue Öyster Cult. Upon its release, and the success of the song "(Don't Fear) The Reaper", Blue Öyster Cult became the center of a controversy surrounding the supposed pro-suicide lyrics of the song, which is actually a love ballad concerning love that lasts beyond death, and a call to seize the day.

Agents of Fortune peaked at #29 on Billboard's Pop Albums chart, while the single "(Don't Fear) The Reaper" peaked at #12 on the Pop Singles chart.

The song "(Don't Fear) The Reaper" partially inspired writer Stephen King to pen The Stand[?].
