What a Joke is a 1991 album by the Christian speed/thrash metal band Deliverance. It features many short "joke" songs, hence the title of the album. The album speaks out against those who think the idea of combining Christianity and heavy metal is evil, especially in the song "It's the Beat". "Silent Night" is a cover of the traditional Christmas carol and "After Forever" is a Black Sabbath cover. After being out of print for many years, the album was reissued in 2011 with new cover art on Intense Records.
