Jesus Hits Like the Atom Bomb is the third studio album released by Tripping Daisy in 1998. The album was 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 and School of Seven Bells. The album expanded the band's sound, ditching most of their "90's Grunge sound" for a more layered "Neo-Psychedelic" sound similar to Clouds Taste Metallic Era Flaming Lips. The album was critically acclaimed, but sold poorly due to lack of support and marketing from the now defunct label Island Records which was going under at the time. The album is now out of print.

"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.
