Well, I tried to scan and send you the page from Campus Life that reviews Apologetix, but it ended up taking 4MB!!!! IT WOULDN'T LEAVE MY OUTBOX! So, just picture a column 2 inches wide, full-length with your cornfield picture halfway down. This article is on the same page as Jaci V. The review says:
It's Just Mock 'n' Roll!
You've probably heard of Christian "apologetics" - the practice of defending our faith. Well, take that, add current and classic rock'n'roll, and you've got Apologetix. Calling them- selves a "Christian parody band," Apologetix remakes songs like Fastball's "The Way," Smashmouth's "Walking on the Sun" and "Enter Sandman" by Metallica on its latest effort, Biblical Graffiti. (Think Weird Al with a Christian twist.) While you might know most of the tunes, the words are all new. The Beatles "Twist and Shout" becomes
"Twins Came Out," a ditty about Jacob and Esau, and The Hollies' "Long Cool Woman in a Black Dress" ends up as "Lawful Woman in a Bad Place," the story of Rahab. A little goofy? Yeah, but you won't get and apol- ogy from these guys.
