Bad Christian Music: Redux

So, the title of this video on YouTube promises so much, and delivers so little. It ends up being a guy using a Poker motiff and standing in a bar, singing about Jesus while wearing an awful shirt and doing bad Country Music style dancing.

Though, the country style dancing is not as bad as this country style dancing…

And I know what you’re thinking – these videos have been stripped from their original context, where it was probably ok to be dancing like a cowboy and singing about Jesus.

Well, I ask you, were these eyebrows ever ok, in context? The words are ok – but this is a Television commercial for Christianity, and that sort of facial expression has always been synonymous with “crazy”…

At the very least, he didn’t forget the words.

But what you guys really need to inspire you is a Christian boy band (as in kids – as in something like Hanson, but not)…

This is what happens when they grow up. They become a “Christian Crunk Rock Band”… called Family Force Five.

Maybe they didn’t get enough Psalty the Psinging Psalmbook, and his rhythmic dog Blooper.

Maybe we all need some Kerney Thomas, whose seemlessly redubbed televangelist programs are something to rival the Wine Barrel Church in heresy that makes you unsure whether to laugh or cry.

Ah, Ah, Ah, Ah, Paying your tithe

This has simply gone too far. Christian parody songs almost always come off badly on YouTube.

Stop it. Ok.

New Third Eagle single out now

William Tapley aka the Third Eagle of the Apocalypse has a new song on YouTube.

I am going to make a Third Eagle Mix Tape. Anybody want one?

‘Don’t be dumb. Rapture comes. Trim your wick or face the gun.’

Reflections on bad Christian music week

I think I’ve just realised, with profound clarity, why I find Christian cultural expression so horrid.

As Christians we’re called to be in the world, but not of it. Christian music, Christian television, and Christian fiction, indeed most Christian cultural expression tends to invert this notion – it ends up being of the world, but not in it.

Bad Christian Music Week: Day 5

This one was on the Gruen Transfer, but I’ve been saving it for a rainy day.

Bad Christian Music Week: Day 4

Production values. That’s what Christian music is all about.

Bad Christian Music Week: Day 3

Nothing says “I love Jesus” like some young boys in colourful t-shirts rapping.

Bad Christian Music Week: Day 2

I’m not related to monkeys. Really. I’m not.

Bad Christian Music: Day 1

Now with Tamborine.

Bad Christian Music Week

While my blog is on autopilot for a little while I thought I’d post this string of horrible pieces of Christian Cultural expression.

I trust you’ll enjoy it. Comment here with any suggestions I may have missed.

Bad Christian Music Week: Day 6

Who let the dogs out?

A Christian George Michael?

Why? Why? Why?

These two are “Bieberievers”

Like many Australian males over the age of 15, the first time I heard of Justin Bieber was when he caused a riot in Sydney. I haven’t heard his actual song. The one that apparently goes “baby, baby, baby, oh” – but I read the lyrics online somewhere. They didn’t sound very intelligent. Which is why I can’t see how these two adolescents (or adults) thought it was a good idea to dub “Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, oh” over the top of the lyrics, while dancing badly. And I certainly can’t see how they thought it was a good idea to then put their handiwork on YouTube.

Father Abraham had many sons (enough for a dance troupe)

This just should not have happened. Really. This is one of those songs not improved by choreographed dancing.

Two new contenders for world’s worst Christian music

Long time readers will remember the world’s worst “worship”… purely assessed from an aesthetic standpoint – I don’t know if this is acceptable to God. That’s up to him.

Here are two contenders to knock it off its throne (I have included the original as the third video in this post). In the Hokey Pokey one it’s worth persevering until 3.48. Apparently short term memory is not biblical… nor is Alzheimer’s.
