CD tracklist
01 Audio Adrenaline - Taste And See 3:35
When I was a kid, I found out about Christian music, but I couldn't find anything very cool. One day, I saw the coolest album cover in my whole life. It was the More Power To Ya album with this wild looking spaceship guitar on it. I bought it right away, and it was the greatest thing I'd ever heard. - Bob Herdman
02 The Walter Eugenes - Judas' Kiss 4:33
Thanks for all the great show, the many, many years and a great song. - The Walter Eugenes
03 Galactic Cowboys - Not Of This World 5:29
If we were Petra, the song Not Of This World might have been a song we would have written. But hey, we're not Petra. We did, however, enjoy twisting it around and putting our own brand on it. - Ben Huggins
04 Sarah Jahn - Yahweh Love 5:12
In my growing up years, hearing Petra songs on the radio had an impact on me. I claimed the words of faith and devotion as my own, and I sang them to myself during times of uncertainty as well as times of thankfulness. - Sarah Jahn
05 MxPx - I Can Be Friends With You 2:43
We wanted to got at it as: "What would Petra sound like if they were our age, in 1995, playing punk rock music in a band with three members called Px, and had lots of tattoos?" - MXPX
06 Jars Of Clay - Rose Colored Stained Glass Windows 4:17
Many members of Jars Of Clay grew up listening to the early Petra records. When the opportunity arose to cover a song from our childhood, we couldn't resist. Besides... PETRA MEANS ROCK!!! - Jars Of Clay
07 Kevin Smith / Passafist - Louie's Solo 5:32
For all the unsung heroes... - Passafist
08 Sixpence None The Richer - Road To Zion 5:42
I am so thrilled with the way the song turned out. Road To Zion is an incredible composition. We've played it live quiet a bit since the recording and the response has been really sweet. With the first few chords, the crowd immediately recognizes it and hands are almost immediately raised. That's really awesome to see. The just love Petra! - Leigh Bingham
09 The Stand - Pied Piper 3:28
A few songs were thrown our way to choose from, but the urgency of Hartman's lyrics in Pied Piper thrown together with a song we wrote a while back was so smooth... in the same artistic vein as The Stand. The mesh is the mess. Enjoy. - The Stand
10 Grammatrain - Wake Up 3:44
In my loneliest years of high school, when the Christian kids were judging me and my old friends were mocking me because I found Christ, I found comfort in the message of Petra's music. They pointed me to Jesus, where I found the desire to keep living, and the love that healed my broken, confused heart. - Paul Roraback
11 Caprill And My Sister's Garden - The Coloring Song 4:01
For all of those "blue hearts" who feel as if God has lost His box of crayons... - Caprill
12 Plank Eye - All The King's Horses 5:47
We are excited to be a part of this project alongside great bands all giving respect to a band like Petra, who played such a great role in the development of Christian music. We respect Petra for their leadership and integrity and for using their music to impact people's lives. - Plank Eye

Petra was one of the first Christian rock bands to achieve serious commercial success at both the radio and sales levels. They defined an era musically, then transcended it with amazing longevity. Hearing their great songs re-interpreted by the most popular, cutting-edge, alternative, rock and pop artists of modern Christian music is an incredible event. - Darrell A. Harris, President Star Song Records
