"Honk If You Love Fred Durst
" is the name of a single by TISM
. It was the second and last to be released off De RigueurMortis
). The title is a play on the phrase honk if you love Jesus
On a literal level, the song deals with God, and is essentially a monologue
with a short introduction. He observes that Christianity
is in popular decline and seeks to find another star to replace Jesus
, claiming he has no cred
. He looks at other options, such as Moby
and even Limp Bizkit
frontman Fred Durst
. At the end of the song, it is unclear what, if anything, has been decided. Though a recurring line says "Jesus rocks tha' mic" implying that God has not chosen a replacement for Jesus, but has reinterpreted Jesus into a musical idol of some sort. At a figurative level, the song presents a criticism of the "false idols" of popular culture, and the cynical use of proclamations of religious belief to attract larger sales from the Christian section of society.
Some copies of the CD single were issued with a free bumper sticker
depicting a Jesus fish
along with the title of the song, inviting motorists to honk their horn.
