NOFX - Best God In Show Lyrics




I’ve no consideration,
zero mutual respect
For billions who suffer from
rational thought neglect
I don’t wanna waste a sentence,
I don’t want a convert-sation
That’s gonna end in disdain,
disbelief and aggravation

And I find it’s getting harder to hang out
With grown adults who actually believe
In Santa Claus and Noah’s Ark
and that their god is the best
My distaste has turned into detest

Who would read a 2000
year old medical journal
Techniques for bloodletting,
advice on Trichinosis
Would you navigate the globe
with a map of a flat earth
Without DNA testing,
would you believe virgin birth

And I find it’s getting painful to put up
With grown adults who actually believe
In Unicorns and Creation,
and God always takes their side
That’s when my innocent jabbing turns snide

Thank God for the Grammy,
thank God for the touchdown
Thank God for blowing up
the enemy’s sacred ground

So how am I supposed to take
anything you say seriously?
When you’ve swapped free will for faith,
hope and pre-destiny

And it’s getting agonizing to hang out
With grown adults who actually believe
Mythology and history
trump physics and science
My aversion has turned to abhorrence

  1. GoEvolveYourself

    Ah yes, Fat Mike does his Graffin impression. Love it!

  2. Michael Rains

    It would be nice if he encompassed all religion, rather tha. Focus on American religion specifically. I mean, they're all fake....

  3. Alejandro Gimenez

    Like jesus probably is a clone of her mother?

  4. giovana314

    Listening to this on Christmas

    Eric Bomberger

    I am..... Santa and Jesus came by 🤘

  5. Lorena Rios Sierra

    Hairy Hand

  6. Bartimus Trashwalker

    There are actually people who believe in flat earth now.. again?.. still?...

  7. Nerds united brian frumps

    Evolution sure dont have any holes in it...i guess u believe the suns 93 million miles away...a guy in the 1500s without going to space said the earth is round...makes sense

  8. Mixtape-Ninja音楽忍者

    62 people can't stand originality.

  9. Charmaine Jones

    Think this is my all time no fx fave

  10. monkey balls

    fuck you devin i h8 u

  11. chuckb

    this background looks like the cover of my school binder ~1997

  12. Evil Jamie13

    HAHA this song is all about me.

  13. Adam Bomb

    Rich people, "god made me rich for a reason". Poor people "fuck, I guess god hates me". Both dumb

  14. Mel Bermudez

    I-
    Yes.
    Just. Yes.



    Sorry religious family of mine, I'm not dumb.

  15. Eric Sutherland

    All the people being like "I'm a Christian and I agree with this, let people believe what they want": you don't get it. It's not about morals and shit. Some people are just annoyed at what Christians are so willing to accept as true. Even if you're not shoving it in people's faces, you need to grow up if you think the shit in the Bible actually happened.

  16. Schwarzes Eis

    Somehow this sounds a lot like Element Of Crime (only they are German, and normally just go straight existentialist).

  17. Heel Teabagtitan

    My pretty face is definitely going to Hell for enjoying this song! Ah fuck it, Heaven sounds boring anyway! Hell is just one big eternal party, while Heaven is just getting on your knees and sucking Jesus' dick for eternity!

  18. RuThLeSs KiLLa

    a comma after history and trump is fitting

  19. ThreeShitsToTheWind

    Hail Satan motherfuckers!

  20. paul clarke

    this sounds like a clash track from the late 70s/early 80s.

    Brandon Gleason

    paul clarke no no no it does not lmao

  21. Ben Bowman

    I’m a Christian, and a pretty big fan of NOFX’s music. This does kinda hurt to hear not gonna lie. I wish more people would know that we’re really just called to show love and respect to everyone. It’s sad that so many “Christians” have totally missed this and are going around hating people such as the lgbt community and angrily arguing with people who disagree with the theology. The whole point is to be good to people. Past that, does it really matter where we think the universe came from and such?

    Eric Sutherland

    Dude doesn't want Christian fans.

    Formalbug571

    The problem is that he understands your religion better than you do. It's definitely not about love and doing good. That notion came about after enlightenment era secularism tamed your religion like a dog. That's why you're not burning people at the stake and stoning them to death. Not because your religion is inherently peaceful.

    DEATH EX

    Stoning people who work on the Sabbath and raping the daughters and killing the sons of non believers. Doesn't that sound nice and lovely. True Christian values.

  22. Christopher

    Best band. NOFX = NO FEAR

  23. Andrei Dullius

    Fora Bolsonaro fascista

  24. Bryan Roschetzky

    and most important FUCK RELIGION!!!!!!!

  25. Bryan Roschetzky

    Fuck Brainwashed idiots americans! WAKE THE FUCK UP AND LISTEN TO WHAT NOFX HAS BEEN SAYING FOR YEARS!

  26. Bryan Roschetzky

    FUCK TRUMP!!!!!!!

  27. Captain Rupertikjakmos

    Watching these dumbfuck liberal atheists pretend to know anything about science is hilarious. NOFX has always made incredible sounding songs, including this one, but they are a bunch of clueless dumbfucks and nowadays totally anti-punk rock despite them bragging about being it constantly.

  28. 12345 Abcd

    God's real, it says so in the Bible :)

    Formalbug571

    Then boy do I have some news for you about spider man.

  29. Riley Noland

    Love the anarchy symbol that's my favorite symbol the anarchy symbol

  30. matt foley

    Jamaica's alright

  31. Lama Jigme Gyatso: Meditate Like a Jedi

    love the lyrics, buddhist fundamentalists can also be quite exhausting

  32. Franklin Sukmynutz

    FUCK this song is fucking amazing!

    YOUR WELCOME

    ardvarkill

    Go fuck a disease ridden rodent

    Eric Sutherland

    Welcome for what? The lyrics are already in the video.

  34. James Price

    And here we have the anthem of atheism

    DevyMarcusW

    @Captain Rupertikjakmos at least smart enough for not believing in god...

    Captain Rupertikjakmos

    @DevyMarcusW You know fuck all about God or religion, so get a life.

    Heel Teabagtitan

    Heil Satan! 666

    Herpy

    @Captain Rupertikjakmos I know more about Christianity than the majority of Christians, but that doesn't really say a lot when you think about it

    Captain Rupertikjakmos

    @Herpy Yeah, no.

  35. Adelaide Dupont

    Very good! Where do you stand on the #lochnessmonster as #dots in the #balticsea? #ifunicornsdontexisttherestfallsdownquickly #arentunicornsasymbolofvirginityinanothermythology #grecochristianinteraction

  36. ISO Oblivion

    NOFX sound AMAZING. Especially when HIGH AS FUCK!!! Fat Mike and Nofx are my heroes

  37. peter mcallister

    As far as Christianity goes its horrific. Its also weird, im gay and its worrying to think that billions of folk around the world hate me because of a old work of fiction!God is about as real as darth vader, a bit more evil and a way worse dresser though lol!

    James Price

    peter mcallister to me religion in general is the world's greatest bullshit lie churches teach kids about the easter bunny and santa clause but all of a sudden you want to say that a virgin gave birth one guy made all of humanity and that our planet just magically appeared and they say he loves everyone which is why some churches frown apon homosexuality like you pointed out and actually ban music generas made by the same people who "where made in gods image" and they ban people who use drugs but serve alcohol to whoever the hell wants it and that is why i firmly believe that religion not god but religion is compleate bullshit i believe there is a god i also believe that god is a element on the periodic table called carbon because if im not wrong (which i might be) carbon is found in everything and they say god created all so to me maybe not to you but to me god is the element carbon it makes up everything in this great planet and the best part is it dosent give a shit what you do with your life

    peter mcallister

    Im not sure what your saying. You know im an atheist right, cos you seem to be rambling about periodic tables....its bizzare

    James Price

    peter mcallister my point was that everyone seems to be worshiping a figment of their imagination and then outcasting and shunning people who dont agree with their thinking

    Justin Barnard

    Eh most of them were going to hate you for other reasons too

  38. Mary Morissette

    Nofx fan from a land lost. This song is magic.

  39. Maxie Pattie

    Hairy Mountain Troll? A Turd? Do you live in a valley? Cause you might be a little shit.

  40. Dam Bro

    LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL Hours of entertainment on this one video once your done listening to it you can go down bellow and read all the religion based arguments for days.

  41. Zane 1400

    So refreshing. If people could just drop the religious mystical stuff maybe we could actually take responsibility for our actions and do what is right because it make sense and helps people.

  42. James Doyle

    Good song, beautiful use of reason, but my lord the fans sound like delusional teenagers.

    X Y

    No they're actually more like smart teenagers.. and i should know i've been one of them some longer time ago (note: irony) :p

  43. Ramp Shark

    This song is all about making fun of conservative Christian ideology

    jay mcroy

    really religious traditionalism... since they all have their own assumptions

  44. Zach

    mikes lyrics are so fucking good

  45. Paul Hayhurst

    its all good

  46. SuperbowlJoel

    Many NOFX listeners like to argue that the band was better pre-war on errorism. I disagree. Their new stuff is better.

    DFM Bass

    SuperbowlJoel I think its all great

    BigPoppaPunk

    It's hard to choose an "era" of NOFX. Every album has a message that speaks true for any given time, so I say: It's all fucking great!

    NamesMud

    So you're not into punk

    Ellie A

    I like it all!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  47. Kay Bee

    I fucking love this band

  48. Robin Hood

    (•̀ᴗ•́)و ̑̑

  49. MissingUTAH

    Here's one for you, Christians: Explain how a mistranslation of the Bible is still as holy as the original work.

    Honestly, I think people need to stop shoving their religion (or lack of it) in other people's faces. The way I see it, believe what you want to believe, but remember that other people can believe what they want to believe too.

    terry bartsoff

    @Maxie Pattie we want you to drink bleach its yummy make sure you use Tide pods as a chaser lol

    Tyler Bates

    @terry bartsoff my deal is if you the fairytales up i don't destory them.

    Eric Sutherland

    I can't just "believe what I want." People need to fuck off with that bullshit. I would love to believe in an all-loving god, but no one has ever given me a compelling reason to. I could try worshipping your imaginary friend alongside you but I'd just be lying to myself. Belief isn't a choice. Religion = delusion.

    Seán O'Nilbud

    @Alijahc038[Ali] Everyone is in fact an atheist, some just like to pretend they have a magic invisible friend.

    Its Loki!

    @Noise Redemption Its basicly the same thing.

  50. Prapti Buragohain

    omg i love this :'D

  51. Conker McHale

    first comment, thanks for the upload and good job ^-^

    Keaton Laver

    you're not even close to first

  52. Dt0x75

    Well, this song pretty much explains the last 20 years of my life. Now you know why I refuse to leave the house...lol

  53. Saint Babylon

    I just played this at the breakfast table after my parents came from church, really loud.

    Daniel Coggins

    hero cookie?

    JJAX GAMING

    What a mad lad

    john doe

    Nobody thinks you’re cool for this dipshit lol

    whysosyria1

    I take shit that never happened for 600 alex

    Mixtape-Ninja音楽忍者

    @john doe 16 year old me would've thought he was.

  54. TSB steam

    slow ska. if you dont like it, you dont like much

    Elliot

    not slow ska, slow ska is reggae

  55. Molly Hayward

    I've never connected to a song more in my entire life. It makes so much sense.. yeah.. I was raised a catholic but now I think about it... because so many other theories we had on the world have been proved to be outdated so why are we still believing what some guy wrote down 2000 years ago?? I'm really confused about what I believe, you know, whether I believe in Christianity or whatever, but I'm glad I heard this song tbqh

    Hambone

    If you don't stand for something, you'll fall for anything. I made up my own religion. It's mostly just a philosophy. I praise human potential, reason, questioning, and I enjoy the sun.

    If you ever have kids, the greatest gift you can give them is the ability to think critically about EVERYTHING.

    Here's a place for you to start though. Everything, including humans, is composed of subatomic particles. Those in turn make up all the elements. Where did all these elements come from? Figure that out, using science (with a little help from Google) and you'll figure out the closest thing to a fact based religion that we have.

    John C

    +DARTH VIRAL That's called humanism my friend.

    Dennis Woycheshen

    DARTH VIRAL thanks man. this is the rare comment....

    Filipino Fury

    Yeah I mean, I knew it was obvious when I saw that the bible didn't have a single selfie of jesus like wtf.

    vaping Otter

    Sooooo...give us an update. It's been 5 years! Any progress on the theological dilemma?

  56. Walter Stevenson

    Well, I for one believe in Unicorns...so there...

    Heel Teabagtitan

    WWE isn't cool, WWF during the Attitude Era was cool, ECW was cool, and even WCW was cool. WCW in 2000 under Vince Russo is cooler than today's WWE product! And I hate Vince Russo! Everything Jim Cornette said about Vince Russo is 100% dead on accurate!

    terry bartsoff

    They Rino's dumb fuck

    Jan Kompos

    go fuck yourself

    Irish Mick

    There in the bible, so they must be real.

    Ellie A

    I was gonna say the same!!! lololol!!! Nice :)

  57. Zacharis

    why are there no videos of them playing this live :(

    Zacharis

    @***** You don't fucking say

    Reb Short

    Maybe because no one has put it onto YouTube.  I'm sure they play this live.  Our band does.

    Reb Short

    @*****
    I'll go along and figure that you actually do know that they've never played it live and just add that I find it surprising.  It's kind of a signature song.and as mik0430 said in another thread "I pretty much agree with every word in this song". It's a simple song that says it all - you would think that it would be requested and that they would play it live.  But I may not have studied all of this like you have. And I mean that with respect if it is true.

    Jay hernan

    +John Mller you never added the video. Hence they never played it live. Liar.

  58. brickwalker

    Good effects, clean font, good text/background contrast, this is so rare to find on a lyrics video.

    Ido Keren

    The timing on the lyrics is really good, too. It's pretty easy to sing along.

    Zander Ghoul Two.

    But... Aren't there supposed to be NOFX?

    Sorry I'll drink some cyanide for saying that

    Brian Anthony

    see... if you just follow the Style Guide, you can't go wrong.

    Fink

    who give a fuck shut up

  59. mik0430

    I've loved this band for 15 years.. but this song elevated them so much higher for me... I 100000000000% agree with pretty much every word in this song

  60. Mezmerizer 9

    In what program do you make these videos?

  61. reixmolon2

    NICE QUALITY!
