Chosen Ones is the second live album & 14th album overall by Christian parody band ApologetiX. It was their last album to feature long-time lead guitarist & producer Karl Messner, who left in September 2007 to focus on his family.[1]


In July 2007, ApologetiX fans were given a list of unreleased parodies & asked them to choose 10 favorites. ApologetiX then performed the chosen songs in front of a live audience in Lisbon, Ohio on 3 August 2007. ApologetiX also chose to rerecord two previously released tracks, as they thought the current live versions were superior to the originals.[2]

Track listing[edit]

All parodies were re-written by lead singer J. Jackson, with the exception of "Born-Again Child," which was based off a parody bassist Keith Haynie had written. "Born-Again Child" is the only parody that J. did not write solo.
