If Christian institutions could produce this kind of music all the time I would actually consider becoming religious.

Lyrics transcript:

Oh sinner do not stray
From the straight and narrow way
For the Lord is surely watching what you do
If you approach the Devil's den
Turn round don't enter in
Lest the hand of the Almighty fall on you

He'll fuck you up (he'll fuck you up)
Yes God will fuck you up
If you dare to disobey his stern command
He'll fuck you up (he'll fuck you up)
Don't you know he'll fuck you up
So you better do you praying while you can

Long ago a man named Lot
Had a wife he thought was hot
But she could not stop her black and sinful ways
You know it was her own damn fault
When God turned that bitch to salt
That's the way he used to work back in those days

He fucked him up (he fucked him up)
He really fucked him up
When the people went and turned their backs on him
He can fuck you up (he'll fuck you up)
No shit he'll fuck you up
Just like he fucked the people up back then

I used to have a friend named Ray
Who walked that evil way
He cursed and drank and broke his neighbor's fence
You know Ray was full aware
That some sheep were over there
And he knew in the Biblical sense

God fucked him up (he fucked him up)
He went and fucked Ray up
Went and paid him back for all his wicked sins
He fucked him up (he fucked him up)
Fucked that boy completely up
Now he's married to a Presbyterian

The Devil is a Sissy.

Bob Dylan said it first on his Highway 61 album.

Come to think of it, didn’t he turn religious?
MarKoPoLo
Why yes, yes he did.

I'm pretty much an Atheist (don't outright reject the idea of god but think it's pretty unlikely), but I listen to a Christian band called 16 Horsepower and I can't recommend them enough. I think Artemis knows them too.

They're the type of music that makes you think of growing up in a one room dust bowl shack in the middle of Kansas, and after you've drank a bottle of bourbon and are loading up the shotgun to stick in your mouth and be done with it, you get the bright idea to go down to the crossroads and see if the devil has anything he can offer you before you blow your brains out. So you go down there and at your darkest hour, god heads you off at the pass. That's what they're like. Mindblowingly good musicians too complete with banjo, accordian, fiddle, upright bass, etc.

Other than that, the only religious music I like is The Dead Kennedy's "Moral Majority" and Otis Nixon and Jello Biafra's "Prairie Home Invasion".

Who could blame him?

I mean, Yusuf Islam was SO inspirational.

I might add that the artist in question who've written the 'God will fuck you up' song is called Tracy Nelson and it's from the album 'Live From Cell Block D'.

I love 16 Horsepower, they've done a lot of fun stuff.

I think in this chorus, it has to be "He fucked 'em up"
We've just been singing about a Sara and Lot, and in this chorus we're singing about "the people", instead of a single man.
( But thanks for the transcript! )

Damn, here I was hoping this was the slogan for a new malt liquor:

"GOD: It'll fuck you up!"

Close, but no cigar. The Tracy Nelson song of Live from Cell Block D was written by Lyle Lovett and is absolutely NOT the God Will Fuck You Up song.

Instead, it is faux-"old-timey" country singer John R. Butler's "Hand of the Almighty" from The Best of the Red Peters Comedy Music Hour, Vol. 1.

The Kings of Leon are about as Christian as I want my music.

I'll go as far as Dead Can Dance, but that's about it.

Fredie: I see those signs every fucking day. The used car salesmen also like to put scriptures on their signs.
Donnie Darko
16 Horsepower is the best modern Christian music I've ever heard. Some of Johnny Cash's gospel renditions are pretty good too.
Pataphysician
Those reggae guys have some great songs where Jah fucks 'em up. White folks getting rolled over with balls of fire [Israel Vibration], big rock stones dropped on 'em [Prince Allah], "spanked with many strifes" [Burning Spear].

Isn't there a song by Bauhaus called Dead Can Dance?

I really dug Faith+1 at first, but there was something strange about their lyrics…

QUOTE
You know, Jesus? I've been thinking a lot about you lately and, well, that's why I wrote this song.
I love you, Jesus. I want you to walk with me
I'll take good care of you baby. Call you my baby, baby!
You died for my sins, and you know that I would die for you, right?
What's the matter, baby? You tremble at Jesus, baby!
Your love… is my life! You know when I'm without you, there's a black hole in my life! Oo-ohhh!
I wanna believe. It's all right, 'cause I get lonely in the night and it's up to you to
Save me! Jee…sus…bay-by!

According to the Church of the Subgenius, the true message of the bible is: don't fuck with the well-connected.

Or they'll fuck you up.

Well, that seems to be more Old than New Testament (in which even the well-connected get fucked up).

Isn't that somewhat the point of "The Golden Compass" after all? Which, BTW lasted all of three minutes at the box office here.
traineraz
It lasted a while in Oregon. And it was a mighty purty movie!
Donnie Darko
What journalistic outlets in the US will say is that, of a production budget of $180 million, it only made $67 Million in the US, and will declare it a bust. What they won't say is that has made $233 million overseas and is still doing well, for a total of $310 million. I think a sequel will be forthcoming…

Are they going to be doing restoration work on Nicole Kidman even more for the sequel?

The more I see her, the more she starts to look like something from Madame Tussauds. I bet the stuff from MT looks more life-like if it was made some time ago.

Yeah, I know she has too look the part, but it's bloody frightening nonetheless.

Donnie Darko
She looks more human than she behaves in real life.

The plastic alterations are but physical side effects of an ego gone mad. Brooks knows what I'm talking about.

God fucked him up (he fucked him up)
He went and fucked Ray up
He fucked him up (he fucked him up)
Fucked that boy completely up


Huh huh huh, huh huh. You said FUCK. Huh huh, huh huh.

Are we allowed to use this kind of stiff language here? Cool. Huh huh huh.
