Here you can find the lyrics to many popular songs written about Judas Iscariot.

Judas Lyrics by Lady Gaga

When Lady Gaga writes a song, she has one aim in mind… sales. And a magic formula that has worked for decades is to stir up controversy — especially in Christian-themed song lyrics. Here are the Judas lyrics to her song that has caused quite a stir.

The Judas Kiss Lyrics by Metallica

The Judas Kiss is by the heavy metal band Metallica. The song is found on their studio album entitled “Death Magnetic” and is based on the story of Judas Iscariot identifying Jesus to the Roman soldiers by kissing him on the cheek.

Judas Lyrics by The Verve

This trippy, multi-layered track titled Judas was destined to become one of the Verve’s last creations. The British rock band’s lead singer bemoans the things he doesn’t understand; as he fights the status quo.

Judas Lyrics by Ja Rule

As Christians around the world learn about 12 Apostles, so do Jehovah’s Witnesses. The themes and meanings of Judas Lyrics by Ja Rule are underscored by the rapper’s feelings of betrayal by his former faith.

Judas Lyrics by Kelly Clarkson

In the Bible, Judas is Christ’s betrayer. For a small bag of pieces of silver, Judas turned Jesus over to those who planned to arrest and crucify the Son of God. Judas has become synonymous with betrayal and pain.  When Kelly called her song by this notorious name, she let listeners know just how deeply she had been hurt.

Judas Lyrics by Cage the Elephant

When Cage the Elephant’s lead vocalist sings about Judas having his “hands in the devil’s pockets”, he seem to be referencing the biblical Judas, who betrayed Christ for some silver coins. When he tells Judas he has “everything to lose”, he may be talking about his soul.

Judas Lyrics by Depeche Mode

Whether the Judas Lyrics by Depeche Mode are a dark sexual invitation or a true religious experience is unknown.  Judas seems to pose more questions that it answers in these lyrics.
