    ApologetiX (That Christian Parody Band), located in Pittsburgh, PA, was founded in 1992 and consists of J. Jackson on vocals, Tom Tincha and Wayne Bartley on guitars, Keith Haynie on bass, and Jimmy "Vegas" Tanner on the drums. In the song "We're in a Parody Band", ApologetiX refers to itself as a cross between "Weird Al" Yankovic and Billy Graham.

    ApologetiX rewrites secular songs with often comical Christian lyrics. Some of their more popula parodies include "Corinthians" (parody of "In the End" by Linkin Park), "Look Yourself" ("Lose Yourself" by Eminem), "Smooth Grandmama" ("Smooth Criminal" by Michael Jackson), "Smells Like Thirtysomething Spirit" ("Smells Like Teen Spirit" by Nirvana), "Sounds of Silas" ("Sounds of Silence" by Simon & Garfunkel), "Bethlehemian Rhapsody" ("Bohemian Rhapsody" by Queen), and "Bought By The Egyptians ("Walk Like An Egyptian" by the Bangles).

    ApologetiX gets their unusual name from the word "apologetics", which means "the defense of the Christian faith." It is based on the Greek word for defense, "apologia". The word is used in 1 Peter 3:15, "But in your hearts set apart Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer (defense or "apologia") to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect..." (NIV). Their logo, a triquetra, is an ancient symbol of the Holy Trinity.

    Since 2014, ApologetiX has been releasing bi-weekly singles and four albums a year. In addition, they have been expanding their sound by adding female vocals and brass instruments.

    This year (2017) is their 25th anniversary! No special plans have been announced yet.

    ApologetiX Rocks! | Posted June 30, 2016
    ApologetiX is not just That Christian Parody Band; theyre my favorite band (since, like mid-2014)! They take secular hits and change the lyrics to become songs that honor God! I think they are masters in their craft. They know how to perform the music, they know how to sing and write, and they even do the production! They have been lifting the bar higher and higher lately and they sound like awesome! The styles vary, though they focus on classic rock. Even the lyrics arent the same type every song; they range from funny to story-telling to informational. I highly recommend them and I really hope you will go and support them! They are an independent group and they have been financially struggling (bus problems, medical issues, and debt). I would recommend you to support these soldiers that are fighting hard. Honestly, how many bands crank out 50 songs per year? Theyve been doing that since 2014 and show no sign of stopping! My favorite albums: Recovery (2009) Play Nice (2015.3) Music Is As Music Does (2015.2) Hot Potato Soup (2013.1) Grace Period (2002) My favorite songs: Wherever You May Sow (New And Used Hits; Wherever You Will Go by The Calling) Patience (Play Nice; Patience by Guns N Roses) Downer Of A Sister (Adam Up; Chop Suey by System of a Down) Dont Bring Me Cows (Recovery; Dont Bring Me Down by Electric Light Orchestra) Come On, Heal The Boy (Music Is As Music Does; Cum On Feel the Noize by Quiet Riot) Narrow Way To Heaven (Chosen Ones; Stairway to Heaven by Led Zeppelin) Drop Your Knife And Hurry, Man (Play Nice; Rock You Like a Hurricane by The Scorpions) Weep Jeremiah (Hot Potato Soup; Sweet Child O Mine by Guns N Roses) Lightning Flashes (Ticked; Lightning Crashes by Live) Come, Whale, Away (Recovery; Come Sail Away by Styx) One Of Us Indeed (Apoplectic; One of Us by Joan Osbourne) Lock (Hot Potato Soup; Walk by The Foo Fighters) *favs accurate as of 2016/06/30

    We had the privilege of hosting these guys a couple years ago. They're so much fun to be around, and it shows in their music! Covering the Beatles, Eminem, AC/DC, and basically any other band you can think of, they have something for everyone.
