That is my very favorite Led Zeppelin song.

TFA left out "Spirit in the Sky".  Just heard that song today - first time in a long time.

Nice call.
I was 8 years old when I heard that song playing on the jukebox at the Moose Lodge where my grandfather would "babysit" me in the late 60s.

Nabb1: "Gethsemane" is a great song.


Honestly, that whole double album is really good bombastic 70's arena rock. Great bass lines, good guitar work, and Gillan kills it as Jeebus.

CSB incoming: I used that song, and the liner notes from Aqualung, as the basis for a paper in theology class in undergrad.

The Flaming Lips have a bunch of Jesus songs: Jesus Shooting Heroin, Jesus Is Floatin', Shine On Sweet Jesus

I'd think the Butthole Surfer's "The Lord Is a Monkey" might qualify too.

George Harrison, My Sweet Lord

Minutemen, Jesus & Tequila

Jesus Christ, Big Star

Jesus Christ Pose, Soundgarden

Jesus Walking on the Water, Violent Femmes

Sweet 'n Sour Jesus, Supersuckers

Too Much Sex (Too Little Jesus), Drive-By Truckers

And "Statue of Jesus" by the Geardaddies, of course.

You could add that Janis Joplin song about the Mercedes Benz if you can stand her. I'm not a big fan.

George Harrison wrote My Sweet Lord about the Hindu god Krishna.

And by wrote, I mean of course he famously ripped off Ronnie Mack's He's So Fine.

No, that's the best Pontius Pilate song ever. One of the best scenes in the movie, too.

Sigh, I was referring to your original post, not the one with the link to the Herod song.

I think I might have known that at one point but somehow along the way got it conflated with the early-70s Jesus movement, maybe because my dad was a hippy who turned into a Jehovah's Witless around then, never to recover. Though I suppose he was probably annoying and full of shiat when he was a hippy, too, and I just don't remember because I was too young.
