Songs about the loss of faith or challenging old gods

Recommended Posts

I remember hearing this and bein absolutely shocked that you could not only directly challenge God but you could do it via song. This was one of many songs around that time which provided a kind of secret soundtrack to my teen years. Heresy I could listen to in private.

 

Seems incredibly tame now.

Not sure it's really about 'God', but more Life and Death, which are the only true Gods if your think about it (I have not), but I the first thing I thought of was Stay with Me  by Shakespeare's Sister for some reason. At the very least it's quite a challenging video if you're on the more conservative Christian side.

Losing My Religion. Bit on the nose for the thread maybe?

Not actually about religion though, it's a southern phrase meaning at your wit's end

Hole hearted is definitely about God.

 

God Isn't Dead?

 

Seven Sundays?

I think it was all of them... but especially Pat Badger. Both of them are in Tribe of Judah, well them and Paul Geary's replacement.
