Best Christian Rock Bands

61 Stellar Kart

This band was just introduced to me by my brother, and know they were under my skin.. I wish I could get to see them in person.. With their punk rock Christian genre, this band surely is a must hear band of all time! Stellar kart rocks!

Not only are these guys awesome on their albums, but they are killer live too! I agree, they're a top 5 in my book as well!

62 Delirious

Michael smith has lead this band for Glorifying the GOD Almighty, JESUS CHRIST. Smith never took pride in him but pointed towards the Living GOD JESUS. As I saw some one quoting that jimmy is "god" this is quite ignorance and foolishness, none in this world is eligible to be called god Except JESUS who Conquered the death, risen and still alive.

If you still disagree go and find HIS Tomb Empty where as you find jimmy tomb with rotten bones, definitely jimmy might be weeping and gnashing his teeth in hell

This is my 2nd most favourite band ever. I know they have split up but they will be one of the best Christian bands that ever praised God with all they had. So sad to see them this low but they are the real inspiration.

Even though they've split up, they've left us with a great selection of rock/worship anthems.

Rain Down...Did you feel the mountains tremble?

63 The Birdsongs

Awesome band! The Birdsongs are one family group that plays all genres, but I prefer their Christian Rock. They give all the praise to God. See for yourself - "Will You Save Me"

FtA great band to see live, they are also very good friends of mine and a wonderful family

64 Seventh Angel
65 Halo

Most of you will never have heard of HALO. Go to YouTube and look up "Lord Of All" by HALO. If you like bands like KISS, check these guys out.

66 Ascend the Hill

Very inspiring music and with good lyrics

67 August Burns Red August Burns Red August Burns Red is an American metalcore band from Manheim, Pennsylvania. Formed in 2003, the group began their first performances while a majority of the members were attending their senior year of high school, and soon began playing shows around Lancaster, before being signed to CI Records. Afterwards, more.

These guys not only play with more talent and soul than any band I've ever heard, they're also humble and give praise and glory to the Lord. They are my standard on what a good band is and unfortunately there is very few bands that come close to their level

One of the hardest, and best quality musical bands ever. Drums are insane, and so are the guitars. I'm not even the greatest fan of screamo voices, but they are simply amazing, I don't know why they could possibly be so low! Listen to them!

67th?!?!? These guys are the real deal. Jake is one of the humblest people you could hope to meet...Matt on the drums, no comment needed. If you haven't heard them STOP WHAT YOU ARE DOING AND GO LISTEN TO THEM!

Best Metal Band period.

68 Crosses

I know these aren't super well known, but Chino Moreno's voice is simply majestic and the music is very calm and thoughtful.

Different from other Christian rock bands in that their sound has an electronic and soothing influence to it. Beautiful music, though.

I'm taking a listen now and done a bit of digging online. no indication that this is a Christian band. unless I missed something?

69 The Letter Black

My favorite "newer" Christian band. Great live act. I got to meet them a while back--really nice people with a heart for Christ. Mark and Sarah are the best! Scream Sarah, SCREAM! Big vocals for such a petite gal (she's about 5' tall).

The Letter black should be #1, the main singer has amazing vocals and amazing screams!

Great band, love them, great rock sound! Should be up way higher on the list!

70 Anthem Lights

Anthem Lights is probably one of the best bands out there. And Their new Covers album is number 2 on itunes right now.

Anthem lights wins! Best vocals, best melodies, best covers, great songs messages, good looking and great hearts

71 The Prayer Chain

One of the early pioneers in Christian alternative rock. Very creative and sounded like nothing out there. Shawl was the best album and then Mercury was the craziest thing I had ever heard in Christian music. If you like quirky and creative with a lot of rock, Prayer Chain is the band.

The Prayer Chain's unrefined, melodic sound struck a chord in the Christian music scene during the 90s. The band has released two albums in this millenium, however, in 2003 and 2011. Members of the band are in other prominent Christian band including Starflyer 59.

72 Holy Soldier

I hated the 90's for music, but thank God for Christian rock during that time that still sounded like the great rock bands of the 80's. Bands like Holy Soldier, Petra, Bride, Guardian and White Cross made it seem like the 80's all over again. Great times.

Holy Soldier has been a long time favorite of mine! I hope that they will make a comeback!

73 Where the Ocean Meets the Sky
74 Jesus Culture

Hey guys Jesus Culture is not a rock band it's more on the worship side but still I love this band and I think it deserves more votes. This group really made me love Christian songs and I think the the singers really know how to give this touch of God to everyone. Moreover the lyrics are really powerful specially "Where You Go I GO" and "You Won't Relent". I just love their music. ATTENTION TO EVERYONE YOU REALLY SHOULD LISTEN to them they've got great messages about God and his love

My very favorite band of all time. They are the reason I listen to Christian music, and gave up on secular. I've seen them in concert, and they have led me into a very amazing place of worship on more then one occasion.

If the music was created to worship our Lord, they really know how to do it.

Jesus Culture has a great message put in their song and young generations really learned a lot.

77 Samestate

Great band with deeper lyrics and fresh sound for sure. I know they are a great blend for people who want a bit of rock with their mid-range rock music. Like Sanctus Real, 10th Avenue North, Switchfoot and a bit 3rd Day

This band is very fresh and new.
Buy and listen There first album The Alinment To see what I mean.
Here are my top 10 christian bands,

4. Third Day.
5. Fireflight.
6. Jars of Clay.
7. Switchfoot.
8. Skillet.
9. Casting Crowns.
10. NeedToBreathe.

They need to re-name their song "Hurricane" for 2 reasons
1. The name is already taken
2. The word "Hurricane" doesn't appear that often

78 Jerusalem

One of the most important of the old Christian bands, and they are still active.

I loved this band they rock. And do not back down on the mesage thy send.

79 Confide
80 Manic Drive
