Atheism is unpopular among Latinos and a significant majority of atheists are men (see: Atheism and Latino Americans and Atheism and women).

Unlike various religious traditions, atheism has no tradition of dance (See: Atheism and dance). No atheist song was ever popular within the disco music genre.

In addition, disco music is a genre of dance music that contains of elements of soul, funk, pop, and salsa. Atheism has never been popular within the African-American community nor has it been popular among Latinos (See: Atheism and Latino Americans and Western atheism and race). As far as pop, atheism has never been broadly popular among Americans (see: Views on atheists) and pop music often incorporates elements of music popular among urban, ethnic communities.

Additionally, disco music often deals with relations between men and women and atheism has a significantly majority of men (see: Atheism and women).

Furthermore, disco music is frequently upbeat and atheism is not commonly seen as being upbeat - particularly in theistic countries (See: Hopelessness of atheism and Atheism and depression).

Within gospel music, one of the most popular songs which incorporated a disco music style was Tremaine Hawkins' gospel song Fall Down.[1]

ABBA and criticism of Swedish secular leftists

The most successful Euro disco group was ABBA.

Although the Swedish group ABBA did not incorporate atheistic themes within their music, Björn Ulvaeus is now an outspoken advocate of "godlessness".[2]

In Sweden many leftists are secular leftists. The Wall Street Journal states concerning leftists and ABBA's music: "For leftists in Sweden in the seventies we became the Antichrist,” Ulvaeus recalls. He adds that the group was accused of “being commercial and shallow.”[3]
