Motörhead: (Don't Need) Religion

I've never been one to seek out songs with pro-atheist lyrics, but that doesn't mean I don't appreciate it when I find one. And when I find one from one of my favorite bands, that's even better. Here's Motörhead with "(Don't Need) Religion" from 1982's Iron Fist:


Don't need no blind belief
Don't need no comic relief
Don't need to see the scars
Don't need Jesus Christ Superstar
Don't need no Sunday Television
Bet your life you don't need religion
Don't need no time for prayer
Don't save no knee-pads for me up there
If your head's alright, ya don't need binoculars to see the light
Ya don't need no miracle vision
Bet your life you don't need religion

I don't need no Santa Claus
Don't believe in fairies no more
Don't need to go to confession
I'm already trying to fight depression
Don't need no exorcism
Bet your life you don't need religion
