* Indie band ThePixies had various Bible related songs which really stacked up to nothing in the wake of their usual incest-themed fun.

* Similarly, OingoBoingo's "Just Another Day" also hints a bit at the End Times, describing a mass extinction of humanity following a nuclear war and then describing "a place in the stars...for when you get old." (History's very earliest idea about the afterlife, posited by the ancient Egyptians, is that virtuous souls became stars and lived with the sun god Ra.)

* Despite some of their songs (and the fact that Ace and Peter are Christians), {{KISS}} is not religious rock. They are all religious (for instance, Gene Simmons is a fairly serious Jew), but that isn't the focus of their music. "God Gave Rock & Roll To You" was a cover of an Argent song. It's a song about rock and roll, not God.

* Both the music and lyrics of DireStraits' "Solid Rock" sound incredibly churchy, but it doesn't have any specific Biblical or God-related references.

* Surprisingly, fans of the RedHotChiliPeppers try to interpret most of their lyrics as Christian, when it's quite obvious that the music has few remote references to Christianity, with the occasional [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BGNvD7980hw notable exception]].

* FranzFerdinand drops a fairly large number of references to Jesus, and one song, "The Fallen" is actually addressed to him. It figures, though; lead singer Alex Kapranos was a theology student for a time at the University of Glasgow.

* The NewRomantic band Ultravox might be confused for a Christian band, especially because of "Dear God", and "Hymn" to a lesser extent. "Dear God" is decidedly spiritual (ala {{U2}}), but the band itself is not explicitly Christian. In fact, "Answers to Nothing" openly questions religion.

* An example of this applying to a specific song is Labi Siffre's "(Something Inside) So Strong", which is often [[MisplacedFandom covered by gospel groups]]. Siffre is an outspoken atheist and indeed anti-theist, and the song is in part a subtle ReligionRantSong inspired by Siffre growing up gay at a time when religiously-inspired homophobia was still rife in Britain.
