Jesus Freak - Music - 20th Century

20th Century

The Elton John song "Tiny Dancer" (1971) refers to Jesus freaks, as does Felt's 1986 single "Ballad of the Band". There is an entire line about Jesus Freaks in Frank Zappa's 1978 song "The Meek Shall Inherit Nothing". The term also appeared in song "Nothing to Fear" by Oingo Boingo in 1982. The term has recently been used frequently by Ted Turner and Howard Stern, referring mainly to fundamentalists. Another use of the phrase was in Kevin Michael's song "We All Want the Same Thing". Black Sabbath in "Under the Sun" also used the phrase.

In 1995, a Christian rock group, DC Talk, released an album titled Jesus Freak. The song Jesus Freak from that album has since been covered by other Christian bands such as Chasing Victory and Newsboys, which features the former member of DC Talk Michael Tait.

In 1996, John DiBiase created a Christian record label website titled Jesus Freak Hideout.

In the lyrics of the 1978 version of Convoy, recorded for the film of the same name, "Jesus Freaks on grass" are mentioned.
