"Jesus or a Gun" is Fuel's fourth single (and fourth track) from the album Sunburn. It was released on April 20, 1999, coincidentally the same day as the Columbine High School massacre. The track stands out among other Fuel singles due to its fast tempo and heaviness. When played on MTV or radio stations, the title is censored to read "Jesus or a ..." and the chorus lyric mutes the word "Gun".
