Greatest Christian Hard Rock Bands


The Contenders: Page 2XW

21The Birdsongs

Not on the top ten? Petra is the greatest Christian rock band ever. They started it all.

Best Christian rock band ever they paved the way for many!

Petra is pathetic. I don't know how anyone could consider them rock, unless maybe you have never heard an electric guitar before. - Joe-Fenceton

My favourite Rock Band! They are legends!

25Rez Band

Great band from Chicago that is blues rock, great evangelistic lyrics

Real rock n roll with the right kind of passion. All these years later and they still sound fresh and relevant. Can't believe these pioneers are not at the top!

26Project 86

This band is great! They have been around for a long time and are one of the sickest Christian rock bands out there

Saw these guys at Joshua Fest and they were so awesome! Great band and lots of energy!

THESE GUYS KILL IT. Schwab has some deep lyrics that are complex but when they are dissected you can see the meanings.

27We As Human

I absolutely love this band. Their song Zombie featuring John Cooper of Skillet is awesome with a powerful message. If you like rock/hard rock or metal give this band a listen. I think you will really like them!

In my opinion, We As Human is THE BEST BAND IN THE HISTORY OF EXISTENCE. Despite there only being one album of there's out at the time I love it!

These guys are a fantastic Christian rock band! Give them a listen.

28King James
29Seventh Day Slumber

Seventh Day Slumber is beyond the shadow of a doubt my all time favorite band! Got the chance to see them live last year. Even got the pleasure to serve at their table selling their merchandise. Awesome musicians and great people!

Fantastic group just found them a few days ago and can't stop listening

The real deal! Gotta see them live!

31Relentless Flood

Little known, but these guys are bloody awesome! Definitely worth a listen.

Local band from NC but don't let that fool you aobut these guys. They rock hard, with great riffs, and a punding drummer that's also their vocalist. They don't water down their lyrics when it comes to Christ. Trust me you know the name of Jesus in their songs.

32Family Force 5

FF5 Rocked when they had Soul Glow...(Solomon Olds), their newer stuff is ok, better lyrics, but Solomon was the heart and soul of the band...

33Jeremy Camp

Not hard rock but still an amazing artist. - Joe-Fenceton


The song Resist Him is the highlight. Love it!

36AnberlinAnberlin was an American rock band formed in Winter Haven, Florida in 1998. Since the beginning of 2007, the band consisted of lead vocalist Stephen Christian, guitarists Joseph Milligan and Christian McAlhaney, bassist Deon Rexroat, and drummer Nathan Young.

Impossible and bring the ruckus, enough said. (even though they both feature Trevor McNevan of TFK)

38Oh, SleeperOh, Sleeper is an American Christian metalcore band from Fort Worth, Texas. Previously signed to Solid State Records they are currently operating independently.

One of the greatest bands I ever seen or heard, power full lyrics. If you haven't heard of them listen to them now. The song Reveries of flight have me goose bumps, the song The finisher talks about in the end God will put satan in his place "your whispers may sway the weak, but when I speak it roars the seas... The angels will sing to a world reborn they will sing as I cut off your horns, Ill cut off your horns. " They're amazing


This is one of the oldest band and loved their song scarecrow that narrates the salvation story in a profound way..

40Relient K

Amazing! My favourite band. They do just about everything. Some songs are pop punky, others have a bit of an emo edge, some sound indie, and there are lots of humourous songs such as Moodrings or Sadiehawkins dance.
