Really?  Are you sure they weren't derived from something else -- perhaps
a source in common for the "traditional" depictions of the devil?  There
may be a common source for both, rather than one being the source of the
other.  Correlation does not imply causation.  Did you ask the original
Beastie artist for confirmation that he was consciously emulating images
of the Christian devil, or did you just jump to a conclusion like the OP?
