ApologetiX (That Christian Parody Band)

ApologetiX (That Christian Parody Band)

ApologetiX (That Christian Parody Band) specializes in Biblical parodies of rock hits from yesterday and today. It's kind of like "Weird Al" Yankovic meets Billy Graham. In fact, Weird Al's drummer, Jon "Bermuda" Schwartz, plays on one of the band’s CDs.

The band may be the only artist ever featured on the radio shows of both Billy Graham and Howard Stern, and similarly on both The 700 Club and the Dr. Demento Show.

In September 2004, ApologetiX received the American Christian Music awards for Alternative Artist of the Year and Alternative Song of the Year. In February 2005, ApologetiX was named Favorite Indie Artist in the CCM Magazine Readers' Choice Awards. In December 2005, ApologetiX won the Best Album award in Christianity Today's 2005 Readers' Choice Christian Music Awards.

ApologetiX tours extensively and has played concerts in all 50 U.S. states plus Canada. The band generally plays over 100 concerts a year and played its 1000th concert in September 2007.

Liner Notes: In ApologetiX, we try to be all things to all men so that by all means we might save some (1 Cor. 9:22). Consequently, we play many styles of music, but that doesn't mean we all have the same tastes. One style we all agree on is late-1970s classic rock. We grew up with it, and thanks to Guitar Hero and Rock Band a whole new generation is growing up with it as well. So that's our focus this time -- playing music that mattered to us then, while singing about what matters to us now. When naming this project, we considered the albums the original songs came from, and decided to spoof ELO's Discovery as Recovery. We all loved our parody of "Don't Bring Me Down," and now we could close our album with it as ELO did. One of Merriam-Webster's definitions for "recover" is "to save from loss and restore to usefulness." That's what Christ did for us and what we try to do with our parodies. The Bible says we were once dead in our sins but are now alive in Christ (Eph. 2:4-5). That's quite a recovery! Although in some senses ApologetiX does cover versions of other people's music, we cover them in a new way, so re-covery seemed appropriate in that sense, too. Best of all, now ApologetiX can officially be called a Recovery group. Again I ask: Did they stumble so as to fall beyond recovery? Not at all! (Romans 11:11a)

  • The Boys Aren't Backin' down - Standard Edition
Liner Notes: Our 17th CD in 17 years, "The Boys Aren't Backin' Down" comes less than three months after our 16th. That might make you think the title pertains to ApologetiX, but the "boys" in question are actually another group whose name starts with the same three letters, the Apostles. It may seem amazing that ApologetiX could come up with a new CD so quickly, but it's absolutely miraculous that the Apostles could come up with the courage to preach the Gospel to an unfriendly world less than two months after they all ran and hid while their Master was crucified. But that's what a personal encounter with the resurrected Christ will do for you. This CD celebrates the spirit of courage those Apostles displayed and the Spirit of God, who gave them that courage. "The Boys Aren't Backin' Down" also celebrates a year in which we played almost 100 dates in 40 states, and our first full year with the TNT line-up featuring guitarists Tom Milnes and Tom Tincha. The songs on this CD were recorded live in concert at Chippewa Evangelical Free Church in Beaver Falls PA on October 11, 2009. Unlike traditional live albums, though, the majority of the songs here have never before appeared on an ApologetiX CD. The few that have made previous appearances are from our earliest CDs and have been given new, improved lyrics. But we are not of those who shrink back and are destroyed, but of those who believe and are saved. (Hebrews 10:39)

Liner Notes: Why would any self-respecting rock band title their CD "Soundproof"? Doesn’t "soundproof" seem to suggest that other people won’t be able to hear you? Well, yes … and no. ApologetiX is all about giving scripturally (and logically) sound proof for why we believe what we believe. As 1 Peter 3:15 says: "But in your hearts set apart Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect …" Of course, no matter how gentle and respectful our answers are, or how scripturally and logically sound our proof is, there are many people who still won’t hear any of it. Why? In Jeremiah 6:10, God says: "To whom can I speak and give warning? Who will listen to me? Their ears are closed so they cannot hear. The word of the LORD is offensive to them; they find no pleasure in it." Those people choose to put God—and Christians who try to share His Word —in a soundproof box. Since they’d prefer that we keep quiet, we recorded this CD with acoustic guitars and a grand piano (along with bass and drums) to make it a little quieter. But our sentiments toward them are summed up in the title and lyrics to one of the tracks on this CD, "Wish You Could Hear."

Liner Notes: We loved the 80's. We lived the 80's. So we thought we'd revisit them with a biblical perspective -- something most of us lacked in the 80s. As you may have guessed, Wise Up and Rock is a play on words referencing Luke 5:23, where Jesus said, "Whether is easier, to say, Thy sins be forgiven thee; or to say, Rise up and walk?" In fact, we were so used to saying "Rise up and walk," that when we first named this CD, the quote from Jesus was much easier for us to say than the CD title. Incidentally, when our lead singer, J. Jackson, joined his first Christian group in 1986, his solo was a song called "Wise Up." He spent the rest of the '80's in secular rock bands, so his singing career for that decade could be summarized as "Wise Up" and rock. It also summarizes what we try to get people to do -- learn (wise up) while they're rocking and rolling. Like the guy on the cover of this CD, the Bible is behind everything we do. As our bassist, Keith Haynie, says: "Wise up and rock. I have been telling people that for years."
