I really love Mozart's Requiem. Although I don't know whether that counts as religious or morbid :)

Here's a cringe moment. Me playing The Battle Hymn of the Republic on harmonica.
Mind your ears, it's quite high pitched.

CCL released its favorite top 10 rock albums. A real lets get down with the kids attitude.

Bach's 'O Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring' great on the pipes and you can play it as a slip jig - almost.

My favourite song with the word 'God' in the title: "If I should Fall From Grace of God" by The Pogues.

That's a copy and paste of a Billboard chart :lol:

I don't suppose you could count music from the side of religion's 'bad guys?' (Read: Satan)

If you can, then there's a whole lot of religion in my Winamp library, even with Megadeth alone.

I also discovered a really good band called The Seventy-Sevens a few years ago.

Turns out they're actually Christian rock, though I'd have never guessed even given their band name.

I find it harder to listen to songs like 'Do it for Love' when I now know that they meant 'for the love of Christ'. It's kind of depressing.

I know this is an old thread.

Quick question:

Does Justice's album † count as religious?

I love it.

Hmm, isn't Megadeth mainman Dave Mustaine a born-again Christian? Even if he wasn't, there is still far more Christian sentiment in his lyrics than in most music - and I mean this in the good sense of respecting others, not blowing them up and, er, not abducting visiting aliens.
