41 House of Heroes

Awesome. This band has great melodies, and really catchy lyrics. Journey into space and code name raven are some of the best songs out there!

This band provides phenomenal music, challenging listeners to consider their worldview without being too "religious. "

Absolutely amazing, not just one of the best "Christian" rock bands but rock bands period.. The fact that they aren't in the top ten is a disgrace..

Love their song In the valley of the dying sun!

43 Building 429

They are the BEST and I mean BEST christian rock band EVER! I can't believe they aren't on here yet! They're songs are so amazing! Best song by them is "Made for You". Its on the radio 99.7 all the time! "Take me as I am. I've got nothing left to lose. I am lifting empty hands 'cause I was made for You. Take me as I am.

I am Yours to use. I am lifting empty hands 'cause I was made for You". The lyrics kinda say it all.

And if your more of a softer rock person, then listen to "No One Else Knows" by them. Its about how no one knows what your going through or how you feel but the Lord Almighty. "When no one else knows how I feel, Your love for me is proven real. When no one else cares where I've been, You run to me with outstretched hands and You hold me in your arms again". Its the best for anyone and I think even heavy christian rock lovers will love this song!

Sorry guys for making the message so long but I really AM ...more

This is ridiculous that they are not in the top 10! They are definitely one of the best Christian bands. In my opinion, they are number one!

"BUILDING 429"?... They are one of my favourites... And the song " WHERE I BELONG" it broke my heart into pieces, I really love the song and the band... They are incredible..., I'll vote for them forever!

Saw them in concert, and they are BOSS! They should be in the top tens!

44 The Devil Wears Prada The Devil Wears Prada The Devil Wears Prada is an American metalcore band from Dayton, Ohio, formed in 2005. It consists of members Mike Hranica, Jeremy DePoyster, Andy Trick, and Daniel Williams.

The Devil Wears Prada is the best metal band in the business Christian or otherwise, so they should at least be in the top 10. Dear love was great and so was with roots above and branches bellow and dead throne. Although plagues was pretty terrible for The Devil Wears Prada it was still pretty good.

The Devil Wears Prada is one of the best bands of all time. They have a strong focus on sin - in particular lust and materialism in their lyrics. They stand strong on their message and meaning during live performances as well. They have definitely brought me closer to my faith. "Come back to your faith, come back to grace"

I would've voted Flyleaf but The Devil Wears Prada is so criminally low places on this list I absolutely have to vote for them. They are without a doubt my favorite metalcore band and second favorite Christian band (second to flyleaf).
Barring dear love and plagues, every track on every release is enjoyable if not downright amazing. They are also one of the few bands who get better with each album. Each release is different than the last but they all keep that innate devil wears prada quality.

I highly recommend the Zombie EP for anyone who hasn't heard them yet, it's definitely there most solid piece of work out there.

These guys are awesome, at first glance they see a little dark. Give Dem a break, try em' out

45 BarlowGirl

"Never Alone" is an awesome song, my all time favorite...
They resemble Evanescence a lot... But they have their own style of praise singing though...
Plus "Thoughts of You" song is really really amazing!
"I need You to Love me" is yet another brilliant spiritual number...

They are the most rocking' band I have ever heard! The first time I heard "Million Voices" I was in love! Lauren is the drummer and sings lead, Alyssa plays base, piano, and sings lead, and Becca plays guitar and sings! Keep Quiet is also one of my favorites because it explains why we shouldn't e ashamed of Jesus. Their new album "Love and War" also has many different styles but still are fantastic.

They're great! Their song "porcelain heart" is just great and they've got many amazing songs, they should be much higher on this list!

BarlowGirl should be a lot higher on this list. They were an extremely gifted group.

46 DC Talk

DC Talk revolutionized the Christian music genre. They really should be put higher on this list. Their songs are still fantastic and without them Christian music would not have gone as far as it has. They penetrated the secular world more than most others and isn't that the point of the genre?

DC Talk helped shaped the Christian music market into what it is today. They continuous pumped out hit after hit, never compromising in either music or lyrical content. They were also probably one of the most unashamedly Christian artists, there song Jesus Freak being a great example. Not to mention that, as of now, all members are still currently active within Christian music over twenty years later. All three of these guys (Toby, Michael, and Kevin) are truly gifted and may God continue to bless them in all they do.

DC Talk is a classic band, and their song Jesus Freak should be like a Christian Anthem. These three great guys can't be beat! Man these guys are just so awesome!

HOW ARE THEY SO LOW. THEY WERE LEGIT LIKE- ICONIC. THEY STILL ARE. they're DOINg A JESUS ' CRUISE RIGHT NOW. (Not saying that explicitly it's literally "The Jesus Freak Cruise) and all three (mainly Toby) have been successful solo! REALLY. I'm A YOUNG MILLENIAL GIRL, and their songs still ROCK To me.

47 Wolves At the Gate

The best Christian heavy rock band ever. They should be on this list!

To me their music is pretty amazing. It's not my number one favorite, but they are incredible ^^

My all time favorite. Powerful, straigforward and lyrically profound and technically powerful.
Herald, Dead man, walk on waters to name of few of the songs that play in loops here.

48 PlanetShakers

There one of my favorite bands, nice songs, great lyrics, and rocking Christian songs there worship songs are great to, especially even greater and like fire

Planetshakers are awesome. One of the best worship band. Should be in top ten.

Planet shakers are the best because, I think they really rock for God, and their worship songs are in full length just enough time to praise God... Thnk you and God bless

The Planetshakers Band has touched a lot of hearts here in the Philippines even Young People.

49 Fit for a King

Great metal core band - saw them live just last week in Ottawa Canada part of The Frozen Flame Tour headlining August Burns Red (they should be on this list! ) Strong lyrics with positive message, uplifting and shouting out The Lord in a voice the new generation will hear and like.

50 Sent by Ravens

It always seems to me that people are unaware of some amazing bands out there. Sent By Ravens has completely changed my life with their compelling lyrics and great sound. They are a rock band that definitely need to be recognized.

One of my favorite bands! Love the songs "Listen" and "Best in me". They share great messages in their songs.

If you say Sent by Ravens sucks, then somebody is a liar! (Sent by Ravens- we're all liars)

Fantastic band! Looking forward for more songs.

51 Superchick

Superchick is awesome! They not only have rocking tunes like "Rock What You Got" and "Hey, Hey", but they have softer songs that can appeal to everybody like "Stand in The Rain" and "We Live". (Although I prefer the rocking out songs myself. ) Skillet is still the best, but Superchick should be in the top ten at least!

Sixty-four? Sixty-four? Superchick is not the band to make only sixty-four. They are my favorite band in the world and have been since they played at my church in about 2008.

I would rank them a lot higher than #238. They split up a few years back after the death of their drummer. Good band.

I love all of their songs!

52 Icon for Hire

This band is beast! Everyone should have their music on their IPod.. No joke bro. They rock. Icon for hire should definitely be top 5.

Icon for Hire is awesome! Its a shame its so low on the list it deserves much more! To me its the second best christian band after skillet! Shame they don't have that much songs... I want to listen to more!

Icon for hire is christian and its rock! I can't believe they weren't on the list! My 3rd favorite band is icon for hire

GREAT live band! I watched their set standing right in front of the stage, and could feel the bass and bass drum vibrating up through the floor. Really interactive with the crowd. Nice people too. They always take time to meet with their fans afterwards.

53 Oh, Sleeper Oh, Sleeper Oh, Sleeper is an American Christian metalcore band from Fort Worth, Texas. Previously signed to Solid State Records they are currently operating independently.

Check out "son of the Morning" one of the best albums of the last several years!

I saw these guys in concert and they were they most energetic, talented, and humble band I have ever seen!

Awesome band! These guys have an excellent message, and rocking voices. All of their songs have the kind of quality that makes you want to continue listening over and over again.

54 The Afters

Listen to all their songs... No seriously... Listen to everyone because their all good
Good +great+awesome+amazing+music= the afters

This band really inspires me to keep moving forward. I love their song "Lift me up" because it shows that whatever we have to go through, God is with us all the way.

Passionate love driven group, awesome band to listen to to make you see just how beautiful life really is

With great songs from albums like "Light up the Sky" and "Life is Beautiful" I'm surprised they're not on the top 10.

55 Rend Collective Experiment

They are NOT rock. Sorry to burst your bubble...

The best live show ever! They are full of energy and passion to celebrate our Savior!
Many great songs that surely screams worship.

56 Tourniquet

Amazing progressive thrash madness! This band ranks up there with the other great thrash bands on the market like Metallica, Megadeth, Exodus, Annihilator, Slayer, Anthrax, etc. Also on the first album, the vocalist sounds just like King Diamond with his shrieking high vocals. Excellent stuff here!

Tourniquet is not a rock band, they are a progressive thrash band, though they have one album that could be labelled hard rock "Crawl To China" that said Tourniquet is the best musical act in Christendom followed by Rez Band

57 The Almost

Aaron Gillespie in all his projects shows how a real worshipper is

58 Sidewalk Prophets

The lead singer has an amazing voice. Inspirational lyrics. Solid band.

I love their songs a lot... Simple though but with intense meaning..

AmaZing band and from what I've heard they actually do all Christian songs instead of saying they are a Christian band and then doing terrible songs that have nothing to do with Jesus so they can make a little more money

All their songs have a meaning to them and if you listen to the words you will be inspired!

59 Leeland

Best rock band ever! Why isn't in top 10 at least?

Check out the song "Enter this temple"... Its bound to change the rank of Leeland... Good vocal work and great songs which touches the heaven...

They have the deepest lyrics ever; Opposite way, I Wonder, While we Sing, and Chains hit the Ground are absolutely incredible.

Leeland has great worship songs and I just love it!
