After I'd been at this blog for awhile, I felt the need to familiarize myself with the Rational Response Squad (you can find a review here). They came to my attention first for the blasphemy challenge and then for their slaughter of Ray Comfort on TV. I no longer follow them, but there was a time when one could not read anything on their site without being bombarded with references and ads for someone calling himself Greydon Square. He is a rapper who raps about atheism.
My initial reaction was puzzlement. Why on earth would I want to listen to someone rap about atheism? Since the Rational Response folks talked about him as if he was the greatest MC to hold a mic, I figured I must be missing something. I found his website and listened to a few songs but could still not understand the appeal.
I don't know how many albums he's selling, but he seems to perform at many atheist conferences. Good for him! I am glad that there is an audience for what I perceive as a novelty. If some atheists want to hear atheist rap, it is great that he's around to provide it.
What do you think? Is atheist music something you seek out?
