Jesus Was A Democrat
Yep, that’s the title of the new single from Everclear (remember them?) and it’s likely to ruffle a few feathers over at Fox News. The Portland band, whose star has dwindled somewhat since Sparkle and Fade and So Much For The Afterglow, is offering Jesus Was A Democrat as a free download on its website.
Timing the song’s release to coincide with the escalating US Presidential campaign will either prove Everclear’s savviest moment to date or yet another fizzler. The lyrics sure are sassy: “I bet you think of him, as a nice clean long haired republican / Nah, he would be all locked up in Guantanamo Bay, if he were alive today.” And just to hammer the point home: “Jesus Christ didn’t have blue eyes or blond hair / He looked just like all those people that you want to kill.”
Anyway, here it is for your consideration/praise/derision.
