Jesse James is a punk band from London, England. They formed in 2000 and have since toured the UK, Europe and Canada. Their first release, the Shoes EP was a hit on the UK, due to repeated TV play of the video for the song 'Shoes'. Later releases include the Hotwired EP, Punk Soul Brothers LP, and the Mission LP, recorded in San Francisco with the infamous NOFX producer Ryan Greene. The video for the song Dear Jesus, released in 2005, was banned from UK TV. They released their latest album, titled The Assassination of..., in May 2006.





(Hi this is Jesus

I can't get to the phone right now

But if you leave a message after the tone

I'll get right back to you)




Dear Jesus

I don't believe in you no more

Dear Jesus

I think you should know the score

I never met you

Cos you lived a long long time ago

Not to upset you

But there's not a lot to know


Born in a stable

Is the story we were told

He had a beard

And you wore a lot of shitty clothes


He walked on water then you held a kickin' party on the beach

And the people gathered round to watch you talk and hail and preach

But the bunch of pretty fishers turnin' water into wine

Sure I'd be a true believer if I'd been there at the time


Dear Jesus

I aint buyin' all this shit

Dear Jesus

I dont want no part of it

Don't know what you had in mind, but I'm sure it wasn't this

I met a couple of cool Christians, but the Rev's just take the piss

They it's awful to be gay, cos there aint no family

And they made you give them money when you see them on TV


Ohhhhhhhhhhhh Jesus!

Looks like we're gona hafta throw things down the old school way!

What my mum said, Bring it on!


Dear Jesus, el Presidente

Declared war on them today

He read the Bible, evidently

And your Dad says it's ok


Like this guy lives on my block

He's such an asshole to my mom

And he flips off all the Muslims

Like their doin' somethin' wrong

I know plenty other dicks like that

But this just makes it worse

He thinks he is so much better

Just because he goes to church


Dear Jesus

Dear Jesus


If you come back just like you said you would

I know that we could chill

But these days we need some evidence

To show that your for real


Dear Jesus

Dear Jesus

Dear Jesus


I hope you got my message when your back if you can

If you even leave tonight, it's means I'm your number one fan

Sounds like an update/ratcheting up of the title song from JC Superstar. If that opened now it would probably be banned in Britain as well. But they got it in under the wire, 40 years ago.
