Drums frontman Jonathan Pierce grew up in a religious household but has since lost his faith. This one of several tracks on their second album Portamento in which he attacks Christianity.
The song was inspired by Sam Harris' book Letter To A Christian Nation. Pierce told NME: "I actually only read it this year, and it leaked into a lot of the lyrics on the album. Sam Harris is an outspoken atheist. Growing up in a very religious, almost cultish place, reading this book really sorted things out for me. The first song on the album 'Book of Revelation,' speaks of the revelation I had after reading the book."
Arizona DJ Guy Zapoleon played UB40's "Red Red Wine" four years after it was released as part of a feature on songs that should have been hits. Listeners started requesting the tune and within weeks it was topping the Hot 100.
Pete Townshend never had a #1 UK hit with The Who or as a solo artist, but he did produce and play on a song that hit the top spot there: "Something In The Air" by Thunderclap Newman, a group he assembled.
