Jesus Hits Like the Atom Bomb is a Tripping Daisy 1998 album released under the now defunct Island Records, produced by Eric Drew Feldman and Tripping Daisy. Songs on this album included radio hit "Sonic Bloom". Artwork was created by Tim DeLaughter. This is the first of two albums (the second being the band's swan-song, Tripping Daisy 2000) to feature Ben Curtis on drums; he would later go on to form The Secret Machines.
"Indian Poker Pt. 2 & 3" (a combined cover of the Brainiac songs from the album Hissing Prigs in Static Couture, 1996) was "dedicated to the late Timmy Taylor and his band, Brainiac" in the album's liner notes. The album is now out of print.
