* "Tomorrow Wendy" by Andy Prieboy (and covered by Music/ConcreteBlonde) is about a woman who's dying of AIDS, and is a furious rant against God's inability to do anything to help (sample lyrics: "I told the priest / Don't count on any second coming / God got his ass kicked / The first time he came down here slumming"). One of the saddest, angriest songs ever written.

* Music/BringMeTheHorizon's ''The House of Wolves'' is this, with lines like "I'll bow to your king when he shows himself", but it '''really''' shows in their song ''Crooked Young'':
---> [[SarcasmMode HALLELUJAH, I'm saved!]]
---> Just a dozen steps and twenty-eight days!
---> It's a miracle, I'll be born again
---> With the lord as my shepard, I will find a way!
---> '''FUCK YOUR FAITH!!!''' No ones gonna save you!

2. The AuthorFilibuster ReligionIsWrong[=/=]OutgrownSuchSillySuperstitions rant song is about calling out religion as a pernicious influence, or based on false beliefs, or both. Like the first, this one need not imply atheism, though it often does, and is compatible with JesusWasWayCool type sentiments towards particular deities/religious figures, while attacking KnightsTemplar, the ChurchMilitant, the PathOfInspiration, what [[ValuesDissonance its singers perceive]] as a ReligionOfEvil, or similar things. This one may also come in calmer versions. Parodies that are a TakeThat at a religion as a whole or at its followers usually land here.

Added DiffLines:

* Probably Music/{{Aiden}}'s favorite subject. "Hysteria" is probably the most direct of them.

Added DiffLines:

* Music/BillyTalent's "Kingdom of Zod" is a particularly brutal variant.


Added DiffLines:

* Music/{{Bayside}}'s "Have Fun Storming the Castle", although the title is a ShoutOut to ''ThePrincessBride''.

to:

* CannibalCorpse's ''When Death Replaces Life'' is an interesting example, purely because their lyrics are mostly just over-the-top violence and gore and then you have this song, criticising religion.

* SJ Tucker wrote such a song when a friend of hers was harassed by an allegedly delusional Facebook stalker. She was quick to point out at her performances that 'Go Away, God-boy' wasn't an 'anti-religious' song, it was an 'anti-creepy-Facebook-stalker-who-thinks-they're-Jesus' song.

* Music/TheOcean has two albums filled with this, Heliocentric and Anthropocentric. Mostly attacking the Catholic leaders, the treatment of heretics, and apologetics.
