Other than John Lennon's "Imagine," is there another atheist/agnostic song.
The only one I can think of is "Dear God" by XTC.
Bad Religion, “Atheist Peace”
Bad Religion, “God's Love”
Bad Religion, “Let Them Eat War”
Jim Carroll, “Catholic Boy”
“It Ain't Necessarily So” (oh wow, turns out I have this by Bronski Beat, Brother Jack Mcduff, Ella & Louis, Miles Davis, AND Oscar Peterson)
Mylo, “Destroy Rock ‘n’ Roll” (a mix w/ the sermon “Invocation for Judgement against and Destruction of Rock” from the Church Universal Triumphant)
Randy Newman, “That's Why I Love Mankind”
Nine Inch Nails, “Heresy”
“Pie in the Sky Is a Lie” (acoustic guitar + slightly snarly vocals, anyone know by whom?)
Roger Waters, “What God Wants”
Frank Zappa, “Catholic Girls”
Frank Zappa, “Dumb All Over”
Frank Zappa, “Jewish Princess”
Also, Roger Waters from Pink Floyd: "God wants escudos God wants pesetas Don't send lira God don't want small potatoes God wants small towns God wants pain God wants clean up rock campaigns God wants widows God wants solution God wants TV God wants contributions."
Ok. Don't get me going here. I'll just pick the first 3 that come to mind.
In our number 3 spot , we have the original "Everybody Knows" by Leonard Cohen. It's an upbeat little ditty- great for parties. Leonard was a hoot and a holler.
On our number 2 spot, we have Trent Reznor raging on about how "God is Dead" again. Why anyone would think that Johnny Cash covered his songs better than the originals boggles the mind and staggers the imagination. Maybe God really is dead.
And the winner our existentialism angst meltdown contest goes to Robert Smith of the Cure. The man admitted to getting shit-faced and writing whole albums about raw nihilism. The Head on the Door possibly being his greatest tribute to the matter.
There are lots of them by Roy Harper " If ". "The same old rock " " The Game " are just a few that spring to mind. Also check out the start of Randy Newman's " Faust " if you can get past James Taylor as god then you have Randy as the devil singing " We`re a figment of their imagination ". A rare treat
