Dear God

An unflinching, no-holds-barred assault on the absurdities and contradictions contained within organised religion, XTC's provocative "Dear God" remains one of the most controversial numbers of all time. Containing supposedly blasphemous lyrics (the most telling line being "Did you make mankind after we made you?") and possessing a defiantly atheistic standpoint, the inherent, fundamental message of "Dear God" still resonates powerfully, even more than two decades after its initial release. Check out the surreal but thought-provoking video clip here.
