I am not against the idea of a Christian band, but every band that I heard that openly proclaimed themselves as Christian, has always been inferior against their equivalents that weren't with a religious label. It's like they're always there with a statement "hey look we can rock just as hard as Satan". I don't care whether you can or not. If your music sucks, then I won't listen to you whether you are a satanic or christian or bum**** or what. It just bores me, christian music. But feel more than welcome to prove me wrong and to show me a christian band that plays good music. Christian in a sense that their lyrics and general band direction are intended to state their beliefs and spread their word of God to their audience.

i dont see what the point of christian bands are all they do is playing chords and sing about god. i wouldnt have a problem if there music was a little better. maybe like a christian version of children of bodom or the mars volta lol


Dude, that's just ignorant. While there are a lot of bands like that, the same could be pretty much said about mainstream music. All they do is play chords and sing about love. But the fact is that there is a lot of great music outside of the Christian mainstream, just like secular music.

I can't really add anything to the lists that have already been said. Blindside, Underoath, and As I Lay Dying are all pretty sweet tho. And whoever said Thrice, I don't think so, the frontman is a christian but I don't think the rest of the band is, and only a few songs could really be classed as remotely close to Christian.

that may be all good, but there's still not a name that appeals to me. I've heard quite a few of the ones you said and the ones I've heard I didn't like, especially DC Talk. Are Decoder Ring christian? if so there's one that I sort of don't mind

We can argue all day over whether or not Creed were christian, but in the end it doesn't matter because they sucked, and this thread is about good christian bands.

The best christian band thus far is U2, with Evanescence in 2nd place. This is not because those bands are particularly good, its because christian bands tend to be so mediocre. I'm sorry, but most christian bands just rip off other styles of rock, but write lyrics praising God instead of the typical drugs, sex & rebellion (but maybe that's the point).

^^ they have faith in Jesus, but hate the traditional Church, and probably won't call themselves a christain band ever. But i do believe they are Christains. To answer this question it depends what music you like. I'm a Christian myself, and i hate alot of mainstream christain bands, but there are some smaller, underground bands that are amazing. If your into hardcore or metalcore and you want christain bands check out facedown records.

^aw okay,.. just for me a CHristian band is the one that uses their music to deliver God's message, rather than just being Christians themselves. Christian bands have a more specific agenda, and their lyrics tend to be specifically about God and their experiences with their faith - not necessarily aimed to convert, but rather to share and spread the message. Because I don't really get into Christian scene, I've heard quite a few bands but mostly mainstream. I don't know if Jars Of Clay or DC Talk can be considered mainstream christian bands but I've heard a lot of their music (I have friends that I borrowed stuff off just out of curiosity) and for some reason the music never really appealed to me. The closest thing to a christian band that I actually liked was Creed, but even then they didn't have a specific religious agenda, but Stapp's lyrics were more about his own personal struggles with faith and other issues in his life.

I don't know why, but I haven't yet come across a Christian band or solo artist that really grabbed my attention, but i'm still open to any new discoveries
