Atheist Song of the Week #4 – Ten Commandments by New Model Army

by Michael Nugent on November 8, 2015

This is my fourth Atheist Song of the Week. It’s a rejection of the imaginary revelations of man-made gods by English alternative rock band New Model Army. It was the B-side of their 1986 single 51st State, and also appeared on their 1994 compilation album B-Sides and Abandoned Tracks.

“I will bow to the earth, bow to the sea,
Bow to the love between you and me,
I will bow to the sun, bow to the land,
But never to a god made in the image of man.”

See also my regularly updated list of video links to 200 Atheist Songs from an eclectic range of artists and genres. They don’t all promote atheism, but they should all make you think or laugh or both. More suggestions welcome.
