J is for Jesus

 Had a fight with the missus. I claim that Lady Gaga is a derivative, unoriginal hack without a shred of credibility or musical worth. And that she exists only due to the short memory spans of the populace and an innate ability to rip off Madonna. And how, despite her new "hey being gay and different is cool" song is a nice sentiment, the very fact that she is allowed to pollute the status quo with her face, voice and assorted "fashionista" trends makes the "hoi polloi" that much lamer.

The wife disagrees.

Enough of the pop crap, it's Good Friday, so I am going to take a non-secular approach for a change and offer up some cool toonage that actually has got some of that spritual stuff in it.

Or something like that.

So, have at it.


Iggy Pop - Jesus Love's The Stooges
Dillinger Four - Mosh For Jesus
NOFX - Leaving Jesusland
The Birthday Party - Big Jesus Trashcan

Agree on Lady Gaga, my man. Thank GOD (or, Jesus) that my daughters have my record collection.

The Flaming Lips' "Thank You, Jack White (For That Fiber Optic Jesus That You Gave Me)" is a good spiritual song as well. Funny, too.

Gaga IS a hack, no doubt about it.

Your Good Friday playlist is missing a Slayer tune or two or three!

Love that Iggy Pop gospel number (although I can't understand a thing he's saying I'm sure his heart is in the right place).

The problem with Lady Gag is that she's really boring - like all industry construct artists are. Who knows, maybe she'll up her game and put more real personality into her music in the future.
