I’ve never heard of most of these albums and I haven’t heard the songs on them, but it seemed like an interesting theme for a list 🙂
Steve Owen: …Like An Atheist in Nashville
The title implies Owen is an “outsider.”
Hundreds of actual atheists in Nashville would like to disagree.
Believa: Aint No Atheist in Hell
I’m going to go out on a limb and say I agree with the Christian rapper on this one.
Disown: Angels and Atheists
Are these supposed to be opposites?! I’m offended. Everyone knows Christopher Hitchens is an angel in disguise.
Stanley Huang: Atheist Like Me
This is a single off the album of the same name. This one is actually about atheism. Check out some of the lyrics to the song:
i wanna believe in all the miracles too
i wanna believe in all the the fairy tales with you
i want the happy ever after really i do
but how can that be when i don’t know if heavens true
but theses no eternity for an atheist like me
Whip: Atheist Lovesongs To God
The title refers to a time when singer Jason Merritt couldn’t find God despite his “desiring the solace such belief would impart.” Maybe someone could have informed him that similar solace can be found with a tight knit group of friends…
Oneida & Liars: Atheists, Reconsider
An album with songs written by two different bands (Oneida and Liars) — including covers of each other’s songs.
According to the reviews, the album poses no threat to atheists whatsoever.
D.O.A.: Festival of Atheists
I don’t know what it has to do with atheism. But it wins the prize for coolest album cover ever.
Sachem Orenda: Ethical Atheism
The album title essentially reflects Orenda’s personal beliefs:
Ethical Atheism was a title I came up with after strongly evaluating the purpose of my music. All of my songs are heavily based on philosophy. As an atheist I have been frustrated with questions of morality outside of a religious basis.
Hmm… this one may be worth listening to.
Why wasn’t I made aware of this album when it came out?!
