What are your favorite songs, albums, or musicians in general with anti-religious messages?
Some of my favorites include "Glory Hallelujah" by Frank Turner and the entire new Quiet Company album "We Are All Where We Belong."
If you disagree with me or if you have a contribution/suggestion, post below!
I'm really looking for some new music powered by freethought! Thanks!
Judith, A Perfect Circle
Personal Jesus, Depeche Mode
Hand that Feeds, NIN
There's many more, but those come to mind.
Tool - 10,000 Days
"Imagine" - by John Lennon
"I'll Be Mellow When I'm Dead" by "Weird Al" Yankovic
I'd have to go with "Judith" by A Perfect Circle. It's such a great song, and there is no subtlety to it;s anti-religious message.
Lennon's "Imagine," comes to mind immediately. Sorry it's not new, but it's still great. Cee-Lo, not so much.
"Dear God" by XTC and "No Heaven" by DJ Champion are also great songs.
love a couple mentioned already, Imagine and Dear God.
Not my favorite but a good song if you like bluesy guitar is No Faith Required by Snowy White and the White Flames.
Here are my recommendations, and just a song of each of them, though they have many more with anti-religious message, especially the first band:
Punk - Bad Religion (God Song)
Indusrial - Nine Inch Nails (Heresy)
Progressive Metal - Tool (Opiate), Karnivool (Set Fire To The Hive)
Progressive Rock - Dredg (I Don't Know), Porcupine Tree(Last Chance To Evacuate Planet Earth Before It Is Recycled)
Electric Six also occasionally has atheistic themes in their songs, I've noticed. ("All your rituals and superstitions -- don't you find them kind of odd? Might as well kneel before Zod!" in "Rip It!" for example)
The Humanist has a great interview with Taylor Muse about the new Quiet Company album and humanism, by the way!
No problem! Same here -- it's definitely one of my all time favorite albums. (And I've got PZ Meyers to thank for my being a QC fan, haha)
Dear God-XTC hands down favorite. It started me on my path to mental freedom.
