Love Spreads is a song by The Stone Roses.

Lead guitarist John Squire wrote this controversial song that attacked the conventional view of Jesus. In his lyrics, Squire portrayed his image of Jesus as a black woman being crucified.

John Squire was also responsible for the artwork, which featured a photograph of a stone cherub from the Newport Bridge. These cherubs were subsequently stolen from the bridge, presumably by fans of the band as souvenirs. (thanks, Radhika - Gurgaon, India, for above 2)

This was The Stone Roses' biggest hit in the UK and topped the charts in Australia. Its high chart placing was mainly because this was the first release from their much anticipated follow-up album to The Stone Roses. Due to contract difficulties with their record label, there was a five year gap between their first two albums.
