Alphabet Super: ApX from AZ (Again and Again)
Fri., May. 15. 2020 7:39pm EDT

J. Jackson, lead singer and lyricist for ApologetiX here again.

In December 2017, we achieved a longtime secret goal — an album title for every letter of the alphabet — from Adam Up to Zebraic. The final letter we needed was X, and Xit Ego Lopa did the trick. Of course, we have 58 CDs, so there are many letters for which we have multiple albums. For example, the letters A and S have four albums each.

Last year, we checked two other alphabetical ambitions off our bucket list, and I'm surprised none of our fans noticed. If they did, they didn't tell me. We waited six months to see if anybody would say anything, but since they didn't, we'll tell you now:

In November 2019, we realized our dream of having a parody title for every letter of the alphabet — from "Aaronic" to "Zekie's Start-Up." The final letter we needed for that was Z, so it should be obvious what song completed the collection. In the previous few months, we had also gotten Q ("Quite a God") and X ("Xerxes' Song").

In December 2019, we reached our objective of spoofing an artist for every letter of the alphabet — from ABBA to ZZ Top. Once again, X was the elusive letter, but we got it by spoofing XTC with the song "The Ballad of Peter Plungin' Ahead."

Do we have any other unstated alphabetical inentions? Sure! We'll tell you about them after they happen. One thing you can be sure of, though: We always follow our plans to the letter.
