Negativland's 1987 song "Christianity is Stupid" was influential for me in high school. The overt anti-Jesus message wasn't really the point, but rather the ridiculing and reuse of the blatant propaganda chant "Christianity is stupid / Communism is good".
Now the song has a music video of sorts, The Mashin of the Christ. Just like Negativland made their mark doing sound collage, the Mashin is a video collage of Christ and Communist footage from a variety of movies. It's quite clever and well done, and more than a bit disturbing. Polemic image reuse.
