here's my 50 cents.

The Dandy Warhols: I am a scientist

Eurythmics: Missionary Man

The Kinks :Ape Man

The majority of music isn't religious, and is just secular. And I can't think of why I'd want to sit around listening to like, specifically pro-atheism music.

That being said, I think Christ Copyright by Nothing More is a good song.

It's a criticism of self-righteous religious dogmatism rather than religion in general, though.

Meh...I always meant to post a couple of songs on this thread and never got around to it. At the risk of necroing...
There was a comment about more secular and less aggressive songs, which I think this fits.

I am Mine - Pearl Jam (Riot Act)

The selfish, they're all standing in line
Faithing and hoping to buy themselves time
Me, I figure as each breath goes by
I only own my mind

The North is to South what the clock is to time
There's east and there's west and there's everywhere life
I know I was born and I know that I'll die
The in between is mine
I am mine

And the feeling, it gets left behind
All the innocence lost at one time
Significant, behind the eyes
There's no need to hide...
We're safe tonight

The ocean is full 'cause everyone's crying
The full moon is looking for friends at high tide
The sorrow grows bigger when the sorrow's denied
I only know my mind
I am mine

And the meaning, it gets left behind
All the innocents lost at one time
Significant, behind the eyes
There's no need to hide...
We're safe tonight

And the feelings that get left behind
All the innocents broken with lies
Significance, between the lines
(We may need to hide)

And the meanings that get left behind
All the innocents lost at one time
We're all different behind the eyes
There's no need to hide

(I believe this was inspired by the Rocksilde mosh put tragedy...certainly inspired some introspection with regards to mortality in their song writing)

These are all very good, but I've noticed that the majority of them (with "Imagine" and maybe one or two others an exception) take a stance of denial of theism rather than a positive affirmation of atheism/secularism.
There is a song by Bed of Eyes, called "Smart Religion" with the refrain "A smart religion is no religion" but it wasn't famous enough to have a youtube video.

Shelley Segal (Has a whole album called "An Atheist Album")

Emily Davis


Hell, even George Gershwin wrote some atheist tunes...

I read Anarchy Evolution. I didn't know he had any others.
He just released "Population Wars" and I'm maybe 1/3 of the way through it. (I got one of the signed copies cause I'm that guy)
He and some Bible College professor also released their email conversations about human origins and religion as a book, which is interesting to read. And then there's always his dissertation (Which I'll admit is a bit of a snoozer.)
