When you make videos on YouTube, you hope people will watch what you’re posting. But rarely do you think, “I really hope someone samples this in a rap song.”
Chris Beckstrom, however, did a fantastic job with it. “Stand Up!,” an anthem to atheists who come out of the closet, is one of several tracks that appears on an album his group The Fonetiks will be releasing next week.
You got a right to believe whatever you want
If you want to worship a misogynistic bearded dude
Who sends you to hell if you give him attitude
Or eat the wrong food
Or love the wrong person
Well you’re certainly entitled to that, although I disagree
Seems kinda silly, but that’s just me
Believe what you want, we gotta live free
You do you and I’ll do me
I’m talking to the atheists, secular humanists
Gotta get agnostics up in this business
Stand up for what’s right
We’re all fighting the same damn fight
All the lyrics are right here. I’ll let you know when the album is out.
