Anyone listen to music that expresses their views on religion?

I've been listening to some music that expresses some of the atheistic views that I have, and I was wondering if anyone else would like to share any songs or artists that they like?

A couple of my personal favorites are R Way by Rebelution and Best God in Show by NOFX.

I'm a Rock Classic kind o' guy.

Dear 'God',

Did you make the plagues and bleeding pox?

Did you conceive the weapons of hell?

Did you think it cool to make the human soul to bleed?

Dear 'God' where you been?

Tell us how not to bleed!

Dear 'God',

The human soul looks out upon the creation,

The human soul does not find thee!

But wonders fill our eyes, 

The human mind reels in wonderous complexity,

Still no signature of divinity,

Dear 'God' WHY?

I can't believe in 'you',

I can't find 'you',

Dear 'God' WHY?

The human soul moves on,

Seeking meaning in the little and great of things.

Dear 'God',

We can not find you in the little and the great,

The human mind kinds a grin of fleeting sacredness,

But the honest persuit of wisdom denigns us the sacred at every turn,

Dear 'God' WHY?   

That is a lovely cover.

Every time I read this thread title, John Lennon's God plays in my head:-

God is a concept
By which we measure
Our pain
I'll say it again
God is a concept
By which we measure
Our pain

I don't believe in magic
I don't believe in I-Ching
I don't believe in Bible
I don't believe in tarot
I don't believe in Hitler
I don't believe in Jesus
I don't believe in Kennedy
I don't believe in Buddha
I don't believe in mantra
I don't believe in Gita
I don't believe in yoga
I don't believe in kings
I don't believe in Elvis
I don't believe in Zimmerman
I don't believe in Beatles
I just believe in me
Yoko and me
And that's reality

The dream is over
What can I say?
The dream is over
I was the dreamer
But now I'm reborn
I was the Walrus
But now I'm John
And so dear friends
You just have to carry on
The dream is over.

I actually listen to some highly religious tunes because I like the music. Gregorian chanting for example. Anti religious tunes, I can't think of many bands that make it a habit of kicking against religion. I will sometimes ask for Lacuna Coil - Heaven is a lie to drive my point of view.

I'm surprised no one mentioned George Hrab. Here's the cartoon version of his song "God is Not Great":

Music is my religion so yes all the time, 30 seconds is an amazing band but there are so many other great bands, Green Day, Rush, Tool, Godsmack, Mudvayne, then if you really want anti religious you've got black metal foreign and domestic as well as death metal. Lots of non religious music options out there everyone, so go out and find it and enjoy it.

So many new leads to explore !!! I recall when I first heard REM's "losing my religion". It was immediately explained to me that that is an old southern expression, for when you lose your temper....Now I am not so sure.

Being more of a "Classical" piano music lover, I find myself about as tolerant of Metal as I am of Religion itself.

I can't stand listening to anything that I perceive to be just plain angry, or mostly just an annoying noise to my ears.

I have listened to an artist for many, many years since being introduced to his music during my time in London,UK. Self proclaimed "Despises ALL Forms Of Religion". His music is of a "folk" genre and he has done a lifetime of work,  also with some of the big names in music like Pink Floyd and Led Zeppelin etc. His name is Roy Harper. What a guitarist and what a songwriter. For anyone interested in giving it a listen, here's his wiki..LINK.

I have several songs of his I'd like to recommend...

"Black Cloud Of Islam", "If", "Hangman", "Hallucinating Light", "Waiting For Godot", "How Does It Feel?", I could go on because I love his music. His son is pretty brilliant too. That'd be "Nick Harper". Check him out too. It's good stuff.

Happy Holidays to ALL....

"Deemed evil by those housed in church steeples.
False prophets read backwards from broken tablets to the feeble..."
