Thousand Foot Krutch would be more accurate . Yeah,so when I listen to music,the majority of times I try and not let a specific type of genre hinder my ability to enjoy music,regardless of religious beliefs tied to a band. I mean,good music is good. I try not to discriminate really.

I have a lot of artists in my ITunes library that I had no idea were Christian rock until I looked them up. With this bit of new recently discovered,it hasn't at all changed my opinion on the bands. I may not share their beliefs but I do share their love of music.
Click for Spoiler:



Thousand Foot Krutch-Puppet

On of their older tunes but still a fine one. Upon first listen,I'm sure most wouldn't have the slightest clue this was Christian rock. Krutch gonna get this party started!

Click for Spoiler:


Day of Fire-Regret

Good song,my favorite from them. These guys aren't together anymore,which makes me sad because I've always enjoyed their music even if it has a heavy Christian influence to it. If I recall correctly too but WWE used one of their songs for a PPV a number of years back. Don't recall which song or PPV but yeah,it's how I found out about them.

Click for Spoiler:


Red- Die For You

Again,another Christian hard rock group. These guys just released a new album and this one is probably my favorite off that album. Very solid group and if you are into hard rock then you should be listening to these guys regardless if you are Christian or not! Catchy tune.

I know of a few more groups such as Switchfoot,Creed,Skillet and Flyleaf(they are Christian right? lol) but these are the groups I'd recommend for sure. Along with the others sure.

allow my to post some thoughts, I am a radio/tv guy who had his own Christian Rock show on the college radio station back in the day. There are several problems with Christian Rock.

Ya see here is the problem most Christian music is it emulates whatever the trend is in nonChristian Rock. I.E. early 90's grunge was king, and then we had a influx of Christian bands who sounded like. It was in this time you could walk into any Christian book store, and see posters with Christian bands and recomended if you like x nonChristian band. Problem with this was these sound alikes were way off base.

The other problem is lyrical content, its rare to find a Christian Artist singing about real struggles, and when I do it's a real treat.

Having at one time a massive collection of Christian Rock there are some real disappointments but there are also some real gems in a saturated market.

Albums that are special to me in no particular order:

Circle Of Dust-self titled, sure Clay Scott, Scott Albert or whatever he is calling himself this month has walked away from Christian Rock, but this album is so well done, it's a brilliant techno, infused, alternative, industrial metal mismash that sounds amazing, it's out of print but if you can find it, you'll love it.

Steve Taylor--Now The Truth Can Be Told--A greatest hit of one of the most influential Christian musicians of our time, he writes thought provoking lyrics that are more lampooning the Christian than the secular, any Christian artist that can write a song called "I Blew Up The Clinic Real Good," (a song about how anyone who calls themselves pro-life can justify murdering abortion doctors), gets major marks in my book.

Neal Morse--a prog rock legend (see Spock's Beard), Neal Morse has written some amazing music and writes some of the most thought provoking lyrics ever--see Flying Colors, and Sola Scriptura, and Snow by Spock's Beard.

I do enjoy the happy feel good stuff of Chris Tomlin and the like Michael W. Smith was the first real artist I listened to a lot, and there is no denying the lyrical impact of people like Rich Mullins (RIP), but I prefer Christian Music that not only talks about Chiristianity but also talks about the fact that when one is a Christian there are still struggles.

I'm a Christian and I listen to some Christian music but haven't really found anything else besides Skillet, Red, As I Lay Dying, Thousand Foot Krutch, and Demon Hunter. I also listen to non Christian music such as Slipknot, Killswitch Engage ect ect. And always wondered If I'm sinning everyday because I listen to Metal and like it?

Just noticed the guy above me point it out in the most under-rated manner I've ever seen. But Neal Morse is one of the greatest guys you can come across for religious music. The dude is a prog genius. Spock's Beard are the finest prog band of the last 20 years. Shame that he left to go solo, but his reasoning was sincere. Having found God and finding the need to express his faith, he deemed it illogical to subject his original fan base to his beliefs and so took of on his own. I'll only post one song off the album "?" but it is well worth going through his entire back-catalog.

I as well grew up in a Christian home, and Christian music was predominantly all we were allowed to listen to until I was 15 or so. Most of it is stuff I look back upon now and groan over, but not because they're Christian. Simply, it's because they're not very good. However, there's music today by bands in the mainstream that are very much Christian that I enjoy.

RED, who are a Christian band but don't come across as 'preachy' or 'repetitive' in their themes or sound, is one of my favorite bands, and easily one of the best I've seen live. Their new album, Release The Panic, is very good, and I've reviewed it on here prior. Glass House is my favorite song off the CD.


Bill Lawrence used to frequently use Christian music on 'Scrubs', which I watched now and again. One of the bands he used more then once was Kutlass, with the song 'All The Words' being from the baptismal scene from Dr. Cox/Jordan's son.


Flyleaf, along with having an incredibly attractive lead singer in Lacey Mosley, has put out some decent music from time to time. From Momento Mori, I've always been partial to the song 'Arise', simply for Mosley's vocals if nothing else.


And finally for my contributions, there's Blindside, another band that's refreshing in that it doesn't shove its message down one's throat, rather, done smartly. I saw them live once when the opened for Cold and Evanescence, and they were excellent. All Of Us is my personally favorite song by them.

I've actually found Christian Metal music now and really love it Living Sacrifice is a really good Christian Metal band I love the song In Christ. Its a really moving song and the heavyness of it is really good too.

Wow, I am old. I was expecting to read at least ONE of my old standby christian bands being mentioned by now, lol

As a kid, we weren't allowed to listen to most secular music, other than Weird Al Yankovic, who was deemed "safe" by mom. Nope. Christian music it was. Fortunately, we weren't required to listen to Amy Grant, Michael W. Smith, Sandy Patti or other music my mom might have been into, we got to listen to the golden age of christian rock/christian hair band metal.

Here are some of my favorites:



Whitecross. Christian metal, sounds exactly like Ratt. Seriously. This song is from their "In the Kingdom" album, which is by far my favorite of theirs.



Stryper. I thought about posting the video for "Honestly", but that was my 8th grade class song, and I am still kinda sick of it, even though that was like 1988. I still haven't heard many falsettos quite like Michael Sweet's.



But, considering when I grew up, and the music that we were allowed to listen to, there can only be one king of the christian bands for me. They were the biggest, they were the best, they are the reason christian rock is even a thing. I am of course, talking about the one and only Petra. Now, Petra's music varied a lot depending on which album, whether it was a praise album or straight up christian rock album, and who was singing. For me, I always favored John Schlitt over Greg X. Volz.

Since we're talking Christian music, I'll update some expletives.

Fugg, no! The pickings are shibb, if you're not into metal or alt rock. I'm under the impression that Underoath, AILD, Demonhunter and Switchfoot all have (at least semi-)religious themes and inspirations.

A South-African band that also falls into this "semi-religious" pidgeon hole is The Narrow. Some nice bass and vocals (for an altrock band). It's not what I normally listen to, but "Lonely Lonely" and "The Banded" are classics over here.

I've just recently found out about August Burns Red and that they're a Christian Metal band and they are really good reminds me of All That Remains a lil. I've only bought there recent album but in the future I hope to buy there early work.

We surely can’t be the only ones who suppressed a shudder when we saw the title of My Morning Jacket songwriter Jim James’ new solo album: Regions of Light and Sound of God. As it turns out, the title doesn’t necessarily mean that James has gone born-again on our hellbound asses, but either way...
