Not a bad list. They have Tool on there but they are missing an even better song by A Perfect Circle called Judith (the singer/song writer for Tool and A Perfect Circle are the same). If you like rock, give it a try, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=23eZMdixAuk.Another good song is Domingo by Yello (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AVIM18grmJA). Here's a taste of the lyrics (they are sung in French with English translation provided):Je deteste l'idee de dieu et de son fils[I hate the idea of God and His son]C'est une des idees les plus diaboliques[It's one of the most diabolical ideas]Dans l'histoire entiere de l'homme[In the whole history of man]
A little bit too much heavy metal but it's still a good list. I love that Bad Religion song. Needs some Cursive in there. Their Happy Hollow album talks a lot about atheism.
I think the 'Read More' link should not appear when there is no more to read. Cuz you click it and nothing happens and readers are like "Huhwuh???"
Pfff, nevermind, the 'Read More' link doesn't work at all, as John said in an earlier post. Sorry...
I'd agree with the Rev. Could also use Where the birds always sing by the Cure.The world is neither fair nor unfairThe idea is just a way for us to understandBut the world is neither fair nor unfairSo one survivesThe others dieAnd you always want a reason whyBut the world is neither just nor unjustIt's just us trying to feel that there's some sense in itNo, the world is neither just nor unjustAnd though going youngSo much undoneIs a tragedy for everyone
I would recommend "When the President Talks to God" by Bright Eyes. While this song is not overtly atheist claiming there is no god, it does lay out the dangers of Christianity combined with political power (something I think Sam Harris does as well in The End of Faith). You can get it free at iTunes. Good song.
Rush is good for some rational lyrics: FREEWILLYou can choose a ready guide in some celestial voice.If you choose not to decide, you still have made a choice.You can choose from phantom fears and kindness that can kill;I will choose a path that's clearI will choose freewill. Or TOM SAWYERNo, his mind is not for rentTo any God or government.Always hopeful, yet discontent,He knows changes arent permanent,But change is
I'll add an atheist rap artist for a little change of pace:http://www.myspace.com/greydonsquareGreydon Square was a member (or might still be) of the "Rational Response Squad."If you go over to Greydon Square's Myspace Page you can listen to a few of his songs--I like the song "Cubed" and "2008 AD Atheist Dreadnaught."
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jvCUUFr9jGQ&feature=relatedThe above link, is your #1 atheist song of All Time. Even though, I am not an atheist I would have to say that song more than any really struck a chord with me as a young man.
Soul Searching by Little River Band, from their 1988 album Monsoon, narrates a search for spiritual meaning. Julian Lennon's 1991 hit Saltwater well encapsulates that our technological and scientific progress is not matched by equivalent moral progress.
Try David Bazan's new album. "Hard to Be":You’ve heard the storyYou know how it goesOnce upon a gardenWe were lovers with no clothesFresh from the soilWe were beautiful and trueIn control of our emotions‘Til we ate the poison fruitAnd now it’s hard to beHard to beHard to be a decent human beingWait just a minuteYou expect me to believeThat all this misbehavingGrew from one enchanted tree?And helpless to fight itWe should all be satisfiedWith this magical explanationFor why the living dieChildbirth is painfulWe toil to grow our foodIgnorance made us hungryInformation made us no goodEvery burden misunderstoodSo I swung my tasselTo the left side of my capKnowing after graduationThere would be no going backAnd no congratulationsFrom my faithful familySome of whom are already fastingTo intercede for meBecause it’s hard to beHard to be a decent human being
David Bazan also has a song called "When We Fell". It states the obvious. God created us and in our "fall from grace", He nudged us. FREDDY
