The Contenders: Page 6

101 Embodyment

Listen to "The Narrow Scope of Things" album. The whole thing is awesome

102 .rod laver

Along the same lines as Kid Rock or Korn,. Rod laver found some success in the Christian music scene around the turn of the century.. Rod laver was a staple at Christian music festivals and was known for wearing a cowboy hat.

103 Poor Old Lu

Incredible punk/grungish sound. One of my favorites - and a nice shout out to C. S. Lewis in their name.

105 White Heart

Great Band...Right there with Petra...Don't Wait for the Movie, Highlands, and Freedom are all excellent albums. Once and For All, Montana Sky, Maybe Today, Powerhouse, Desert Rose, and Fly Eagle Fly are some of my favorite songs of theirs.

Are you telling me that White Heart isn't one of the bands that lead the way in the late '80s and 1990's? Freedom is go to be one of the top albums of all time.

I don't know why no one has mentioned them. "Freedom" from 1989 is definitely my favorite Christian rock album of all time.

They still haven't broken up! (lol)

This Band Should be at the top. they are more original and creative by miles when compared with the majority of the bands above them on this list.

You should hear their cover of NIN's Head Like a Hole.

107 Relentless Flood

Relentless flood is one of the best hard rock bands that don't have the annoying screaming. The have really great awesome sounding guitar along with great vocals. They should be at the #1 since I am very picky with the Christian bands I like there is no band like them.

They have so many great songs that can attract first-time listeners. They deserve a lot more attention for a relatively new band. The Time is Now is a well-crafted album. - NuMetalManiak

They are new hard rock band check there song 'Come Home' very meaningful. - paasadani

108 Silversyde

Great up-and-coming band. Kind of similar to Fireflight.

109 Norma Jean

They are the best

110 Sixpence None the Richer
111 Becoming the Archetype
112 The Better Way Band

Great local Christian Rock band. The have a wide variety of music styles and a wonderful message. They started back in the 80's. Seattle should get to know them.

113 Lost Dogs

I'm surprised The Lost Dogs is not on this list they put a lot feeling in their music such as "Breath Deep" and "Pray Where You Are" I really enjoy their music a joy to listen to as they preach the word of God in song.

They are so great! Lead by some great singers, Derri Daugherty, Mike Roe, Terry Taylor, and the late, great, Gene Eugene!

Lost Dogs should be in the to p ten as should each of their individual bands.

114 Axios

Axios (please don't confuse them with Axiom) are an awesome band from Joplin, Missouri who are nowhere near as well known as they should be. Their album Come Alive is great and I wish more people could know about them and how moving their music is. They are wonderful musicians as well who truly love to praise God while rocking the house at the same time.

115 311 311 311 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.
116 Lightswitch

I've seen them a few times and each time their show has astonished me more than the last time! The songs they play are more inspirational than what I generally hear on Christian radio these days. The most impressive thing is how the band interacts with the crowds of people after the show, taking the time to show every fan that they care about them.

Lightswitch is such a great Christian band, all love the Lord and just so happen to a band of brothers! Not only are their music great, but you are in for a treat with Christmas music all year round ;) Close to their music and their AMAZING lights! I guess when you are called Lightswitch that is important!

Awesome friendly guys who are amazing musicians! Especially the bassist, I mean not to give him a big head or anything but he is basically the gold standard of what other bassists should be compared to.

I think it's cool they're brothers. Their lighting of the stage is impressive. The fact that they perform in Spanish and English is also a big plus. They are very passionate about the message and their lyrics are meaningful.

While I was waiting in line to meet stephan (steven? ) baldwin at creation fest in PA, these guys took the stage of the lesser knowns just trying to get a start... Myself and my best friend were so blown away by these guys. Every song has meaning every song filled with compassion and comfort, and yes I have to admit they sound sort of like queen in a sense. They should definitely be higher on the list if not the top ten... If you can find the song they never record but end every show with you will know what I am talking hilarious guys and very personable... Coming second only to family force five those guys are so down to earth its scary

Marc Martel has an amazing voice. Better than Freddie Mercury's in my opinion. His and Jason's voice compliment each other perfectly (Marc's in the higher end and Jason in the deeper end). Lyrics are also a big part of it. They're not usually poetic, but when they're not, they're honest and thoughtful. They can also come up with some great and catchy melodies.

I Love Marc Martel and Jason Germain singing together. You need to hear them. There songs are always having a meaning. Protest to Praise, How Many Kings, The More, Here I Am, Let Me Rediscover You, You're Not Alone, and Living the Dream are their best.

Too bad they didn't last longer. I hope Martel comes back to the band... Wide Eyed and Mystified and Ending is Beginning are two great albums.

I like these guys a lot. My favorite song that they do is called undone. It is a really meaningful song and has a great tune. Why in the world isn't disciple even on this list though. Anyways this band should be ranked higher than this.

119 For 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!
