Jesus loves Junkies was Underground-band from Tucson, Arizona. Band was formed late 1994 and their first album was released at the same year. Their last album was released in 1998, titled The Great Escape From Paradise, and in 1999 band parted ways.
The name of the band was based on the Karl Marx quote, where he stated that "…religion was the opiate of the people (masses)…" A familiar backdrop at JLJ shows was a stained glass window depicting a nude Jesus with a syringe 'phallus' and his eight-ball hemorage eyed "junkie"apostles kneeling before him to receive their 'daily bread' . The band was an apocalyptic mixture of electronic, industrial and blasphemous metal. Members included Wambolt, Orcutt and several other revolving door musicians.
