CREED SUCKS AND IS NOT A CHRISTIAN ROCK BAND!

LISTEN TO SKILLET

Other good Christian Rock Bands
Thousand Foot Krutch
Falling Up
Pillar
Superchic(k)
Seven Day Slumber
Chevelle

To be a christian rock band you have to actually acknowledge that you are a Christian Rock band. Bands like Creed, Alterbridge and Alter Bridge, George Harrison, and a bunch of other bands you have mentioned are not Christian rock bands. Neither is Evanescence, MORONS! I don't care if their lyrics sounds like they might be Christian.

Hey I have two questions about this subject.

First, are there any Christian Bands that have a "Dance Rock" sound to them? For example, The Moving Units, The Rapture... well "Indie" bands to be more general.

Second, anyone know any Christian Electronic groups or artists? Coincidentially some kids mentioned Christian music cant have electronica as a genre, I highly doubt this for I dont think it matters.

Those are the generic modern rock type Christian bands if anyone is wondering. Don't judge all Christian bands based on those.

^great way to post a constructive argument ... POD, while nothing special, don't sound to me like RATM... it's like saying that Alice In Chains sounds exactly like Nirvana... similar sort of genres, except RATM is not nu-metal and never was. As for the rest of Christian bands like CHevelle or whatever, I just think they lack attitude. I always get the feel from them that they are just trying to prove to everyone that "god has good music too" - in that sort of tone of voice, instantly on the defensive. Maybe not down to the particular bands, but that's the general feel of the scene. And there is just something that I can't quite put my finger on, but I never liked about that sort of music. Maybe because it goes against my belifes (life morals and beliefs in general, not religious necessarily). Maybe it's because I like to make up my own mind on the issues and I don't like the preaching attitude that Christian bands have adopted. By Christian bands I assume we all mean the bands that have an agenda and that spread the message through lifestyle and lyrics, as opposed to just band members being christian but not using music as a tool to spread their message.

There isnt really any Christian Indie rock in the contemporary christian scene at least not yet. And the only Christian electronica/techno I can think of is a group called Raze (or something like that) they do have Christian Dj like Dj Light is one that I know of. but you have to really search deep online if you want to hear some good ol christian techno music they are very deep down under ground.
#132
Here's a few really AWESOME Christian bands/artists:

Casting Crowns
Chris Tomlin
Third Day
Tod Agnew
MercyMe
Grand Prize (they're kinda new still)
Avalon
FFH
Selah
Bebo Norman
Toby Mac
DC-Talk
PlusOne has gotten even BETTER since they're first album.

Haha, oh man Raze. The black guy in that group got in trouble for having sex with a thirteen year old girl. I had forgotten about them intil now. They are crappy dance/pop anyway.

Actually they were, originally. Now they still get play on Christians stations and all that but they have made an effort to get away from that somewhat.

my personal favourite christian bands have to be Underoath, Stryper, mewithoutYou, Relient K, Skillet, and Delirious.


I just saw Delirious at a 2-day concert. Oh man they were so awesome. I was in the very front, right in the mosh pit. it was great.

Anberlin is about the best Christian band out there right now.
Stryper is awesome.
Jars of Clay, incredibly good. I love them.
Norma Jean is good if you like harder stuff.
Haste the Day for hardcore, very good.
Zao, good hardcore, again.

Most of the stuff I like has already been listed, but Killswitch Engage is by far my favorite these days, if you say they're not christian, thats fine,but look up lyrics to any song from any album and tell me what you would consider them because they are like freakin worship music.

I think its dumb for christian to be a genre, all it does is make people not even want to try it out. A genre should be chosen for the type of music, not what the lyrics are about, they dont have a political rock section at the music store. Im in a band with some guys from my church and if people ask what kind of band we are, I tell them alternative or hard rock. But if they ask me what the musics about, I'll tell them that it is mostly about God because thats my passion and what I look to for inspiration just like bob marley and pot (half kidding).

If christian bands really want to use their music to touch peoples lives, the first step is to get them to listen to it, but if you label yourself with a big I LOVE JESUS sticker, no one wants to give you a shot, and understandably so, theres alot of christian music out there that is cheesy and talentless, but that doesn't mean they all have to be, not to brag, but I think a non christian could enjoy my bands music even though they dont have the same beliefs as me.

Avenged seven fold IS NOT christian


which is funny, considering their name, stage names, and lyrics are full of Biblical references.
#156
Creed "dumb****s" or now as we call it the " the sucky bunch," (Alterbridge) are ****ing terrible. I wonder if they pray to their God in bed at night and ask for talent.
#157
ive said it once already, but Blindside. If you are musicly inclined at all you need to listen to these guys. If you think they arent heavy or whatever then youre an idiot. Try a Swedish Hardcore band lol. Listen to songs from their self titled album, A Thought Crushed My Mind and Silence. Those CDs will throw you on your back!

also, Chris Rice has the most amazing voince Ive ever heard. And his songwriting makes me idk..melt i guess. Smell the Color 9 is one of my favs.

Yeah thats true but they aren't. They were just raised around it, in Catholic school and stuff.

The only other one I can think of off the top of my head is Creed...And Alter Bridge, if they count.

creed is not a christian band! if you're looking for a christian band that sounds like creed, try kutless, 12 stones, seventh day slumber, and lifehouse.
