Where's God?

Album: The Mighty Death Pop! (2012)

Songfacts®:

  • Who says white men can't rap? As with most of the genre, there is a fair amount of profanity in this surprisingly infectious ditty. The relevant line actually reads "Where's God when s--t goes down?"

    Lemmy asked the same thing in "God Was Never On Your Side," and philosophers have been asking the very same question since time immemorial, albeit in more moderate language. Unsurprisingly, "Where's God?" found its way onto the soundtrack of the 1997 low-budget horror film Mimesis: A Symphony Of Horror for which it could have been written. >>
