Happy Easter, you degenerate rock 'n' roll fans. Most of you listeners of the devil's music probably only know Easter as the one major holiday that does nothing to shorten the workweek.

But, there actually is reason for the holy day. In case you didn't know, Easter commemorates the day when a man who may or may not have been dark-skinned rose from the dead a mere three days after dying at the hands of a power structure that eventually helped give rise to one of the world's largest and most powerful religions.

If you listen to popular music, you're halfway to Hell already, but if you want to hasten the trip, perhaps try putting on one of these songs while Dad is carving the Easter ham on Sunday.

John Lennon: "God"

The ex-Beatle famously loved taunting believers, and he's arguably history's only rocker who could get away with the shit he said and still be popular music's most revered figure. Sample lyric: "God is a concept . . . I don't believe in Jesus." Also check out his most famous post-Beatles composition "Imagine" ("... And no religion, too / Imagine all the people / Living life in peace").

XTC: "Dear God"

Andy Partridge's neo-psychedelic pop band caused nary a ruffle until this 1986 semi-hit. Not surprisingly, his native England wasn't too happy about the tune, as some stores wouldn't stock the single. Sample lyric: "You're always letting us humans down . . . Father, Son, and Holy Ghost is just somebody's unholy hoax."

Tom Waits: "God's Away on Business"

The iconoclastic singer-songwriter and all-around badass also wrote "Chocolate Jesus," among several other tunes that could be potentially objectionable tunes to church-goin' folk. Sample lyric: "If you're looking for someone to pull you out of that ditch / You're out of luck / God's away on business."

Really ? These were the WORST offenders you could come up with ?

I'm a volunteer DJ at an independent station in the wilds of Central Illinois, and for Easter I always play some combination of "Banging In The Nails" by the Tiger Lillies, "Jesus: The Missing Years" by John Prine, "Time Jesum Transeuntum Et Non Reverentum (Dread The Passing Of Jesus, For He Will Not Return)", by Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds, "Kiss Me, Son Of God" by They Might Be Giants, "Blinded By Rainbows" by the Rolling Stones, "Do You Believe In Rapture" or "Catholic Block" by Sonic Youth, "JC Auto" by Sugar and "Hard-On For Jesus" by the Dandy Warhols - Along with another 30-odd potentially FCC-license-threatening ditties -

But, ALWAYS, EVERY YEAR: "The Ascension", by Glenn Branca, "Gloria In Excelsis Deo", by Patti Smith and "Monkey Gone To Heaven", by the Pixies.


Whoever wrote this article needs some SERIOUS blasphemy lessons.

WTF! Where is Gary Numans 'The Angel Wars'? That is seriously, the most antireligious song ever written! Infact the whole 'Exile' album from 1997, is all based around the lie of religion and its disease!
