Ash - Jesus Says

Music video from the 1998 Ash album "Nu-Clear Sounds". 


-

"Jesus Says" is a song by Ash, released as the first single from their album Nu-Clear Sounds on September 21, 1998, reaching number 15 in the UK singles chart. It was released as a single CD, a 7" vinyl, and as a cassette. "Jesus Says", despite its considerably low chart placing was Ash's highest ever selling single until "Shining Light" in 2001. The 7" version came with a picture sleeve and the UK promo version came in a custom rice paper picture wallet.

"Jesus Says" introduced the world to Ash's second full-length album, and left some fans baffled by its more raw sound. Nevertheless, it was a hit for the band and is considered somewhat of a fan favourite. Tim said of the song: 'This was written at the height of our touring madness. It's about being hung over and homesick in New York City - 'a million lightyears from home'. The song may have also originally been called "Ditto". Tim Wheeler has stated the song has no religious meaning, although that did not stop some controversy being built over it. A promo poster showing a cartoon Jesus saying "Ash" was heavily criticised.

The video for "Jesus Says" was directed by Howard Greenhalgh. The majority of the video takes place in an abandoned warehouse where a party is taking place with the band playing. The video constantly rotates which led to MTV receiving complaints about the video due to its apparent 'nauseousness', which led to a second video to be released, with toned-down spinning effects.
