"King James Version", originally released by Sire Records on September 12, 2000, is the second full-length album by alternative rock band Harvey Danger. Although it garnered critical acclaim, it failed to produce a hit song, unlike the earlier "Where Have All The Merrymakers Gone?". After the release of "King James Version", the band took a three-year hiatus.

The album is characterized by a polished and energetic indie rock style and lyrics laden with historical, literary, and pop cultural allusions.
