PLAYLIST: Religious-Themed Rock Songs

Rock and roll is the “devil’s music?”  Please!

While many rock bands in history dabbled with dark subject matter, others also embraced a higher power, like the Doobie Brothers with their cover of The Art Reynolds Singers’ “Jesus Is Just Alright.”  Considering today (October 19th) is Patrick Simmons’ birthday, we assembled a playlist of other religious-themed rock songs.  Enjoy!
