Best Christian Rock Bands


The Contenders: Page 5XW


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.

Probably too heavy for most, but in their genre they are as good as any other. Tight, well structured songs. Criminally overlooked. Best album is "Extraction from Mortality"


Deliverance shreds and along with tourniquet deserves to be in different category, really on the same list as superchick

Really all three deliverance, repent... Or bloodgood should be top 20 all time.

Best bands ever in Christian metal deliverance... Repent... bloodgood

85Smalltown Poets

The Smalltown Poets formed in 1996 and performed until 2004, took a six year haitus, and have reformed since 2010. They release a number of successful single mostly in the late 90s, such as "There Is Only You" but also had some success in the early 2000s.

86King James

When their debut record came out in 1994, they were the literal Christian Super-group. With the rhythm section of Stryper, Jimi Bennett's soaring vocals and Rex Carroll's mind blowing fret work, King James were the best of the best. Look for a NEW album SOON!

87Aunt Betty

Is a anther one should be look at

This guy was found by Trevor McNevan of Thousand Foot Krutch and FM Static. He is Godly and still admits his flaws. To be honest he needs to be much higher on this list. Check out "Renegade", "Love Wide Open", and "Edge of my Life"

Their song avalanche is great!

90311311 is an American rock band from Omaha, Nebraska. The band was formed in 1988 by vocalist and guitarist Nick Hexum, lead guitarist Jim Watson, bassist Aaron "P-Nut" Wills.
91For King and Country

I started out just liking them. I was like, "okay, they're cool! " But then my Sister became obsessed with them and started listening to their music so much, and I got to like them a lot more. Honestly, I'd probably count them as one of my favorites of all time.

I can't believe they are not on the list. One of my favorite song is proof of your love.

They're one of my favorites! I've seen them live twice and they are still the best concerts that I've been to

Love this band!

A Christian band with a unique sound. Their music borrowed elements of hip hop, electronica, and experimental music. While the band only found commercial success with one album with the single "One Time, " members of Earthsuit continue to work together on a couple of projects most notably MuteMath.

How can this band be so low on this list? This band was MuteMath before they were MuteMath! Seriously, "One Time" was a revolutionary sound and it gave birth to songs like "Chaos" and "Typical" that were so popular on the radio. A truly great band!


All if there mysic is really cool and they have a wide selection of music and genres. Look up songs like " Eye of the Storm", " About a Burning Fire", or " There Must be Something in the Water". They're all really good songs. Blindside should have originally been on this list, Flyleaf and We As Human should have been higher on the list, and Tenth Avenue North and Manic Drive shouldn't be on the list at all.

Blideside was an awesome band back in the day with songs such as teddybear, Silence, and pitiful

These guys rock, but maybe not quite top ten because they are too hard for pansy sissie listning

A metalcore band, Zao originally had a strong commitment to Christ-centered music. The composition of the band changed over time as did it's emphasis on Christian themes in its songs. While the band still exists and their Wikipedia entry indicates there have been changes to their website, there hasn't been an album release in many years.

96The Diverse City Band

I loved tobyMac a lot, and then I realized the background music was just as good! Diverse City is a band that makes a bunch of different types of music. They do Hip Hop, Rock, and everything else needed! The band needs to be farther up on the list, and tobyMac needs to be higher on the CCM list.

So Diverse City is the band that does the background music for TobyMac? Cool! - RiverClanRocks

99Living Sacrifice

Gotta go with the legends, Got hooked on "Reject" from the Reborn album, then the "Hamming Process" dropped and WOW. Thank you.. The best concert I went to had to be when they toured with Demon Hunter

I remember seeing them live at cornerstone fest and they where sick. Vote for Living Sacrifice because they are on of the patriarchs of Christian hard rock

Great music. They put on an incredible show. Had the pleasure to meet these guys at one of there shows and they took the time to go eat with us before the show. Really down to earth guy's.

Present yourselves as a living sacrifice.
