I may be wrong but I recall the band or singer or whatever only claimed to be Christian for fans


Yeah, definitely their songs and lyrics are just incredible, and really point to God. I love these guys

Disciple is awesome man... There is so much message in every song... I love kevin's vocals and that drumming... Wooh is epic...
Chek demm out, they rock HIS name above!... :D

7ParamoreParamore is an American rock band from Franklin, Tennessee, formed in 2004. The band currently consists of lead vocalist Hayley Williams and guitarist Taylor York.

If Paramore weren't already amazing enough, the fact that ALL the members of Paramore (Hayley, Jeremy, Taylor) are Christians, makes them even more amazing! In a few of their songs you can here little hints of their faith, without cramming Christianity down your throat, which I really appreciate. Paramore has helped me through a lot and still does, and even saved my life. This band is truly amazing and a strong inspiration to me!

Many people say that the changes they've made are a result of them leaving their faith, but that's not true! The member of Paramore are still devout Christians! Hayley Williams has a cross tattooed on her inner thigh for crying out loud! LOVE. THIS. BAND.

Paramore is my 3rd favorite band, the fact that they are Christians and they are influenced by their Christianity makes me relate to them even more, which makes me love them even more!

Best. Band. In the world!

9August Burns RedAugust 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 are my favorite band and have been since Sophomore year of high school (I'm a Sophomore in college now) and they've gotten me through so much before I knew Christ and after I came to Christ. Not only can I bang my head, but worship while I do it too!

They are the best of the best with really cool lyrics. Number one in my opinion. Back burner, Empire and so many more
