Most Underrated Christian Rock Bands

The Top Ten

1 Thousand Foot Krutch Thousand Foot Krutch

Not underrated at all, it is a top 5 band! Try Nine Lashes.

Underrated? They're, like, the third biggest Christian Rock band, as far as popularity goes. - LarkwingFlight

They only play two of their songs on the radio, they should play more, like all of them are good for the radio.

Little to no Airplay. Listen to Last Amen and Last Night's Daydream.

Maybe not what you'd consider "rock," more like alternative rock. But still more underrated than TFK and Red. - LarkwingFlight

First of all that sound they have is awesome with the bass and power cords and then you add dawns vocals and your like can it get better and it does when you hear the lyrics. WOW.. When I received christ I kinda though my music was gonna be organs and blue hair but that's so not true. If your needing something new try fireflight and turn it up loud. Thanks kyle

Their songs talk about everyday struggles and how to deal with them with God's help. Very uplifting and encouraging!

9 Decyfer Down Decyfer Down Decyfer Down is a Christian rock band formed in 1999 and based in Morehead City, North Carolina. Until 2002 – the year that Christopher Clonts joined the band – they went by the moniker Allysonhymn (pronounced All-eyes-on-Him). Decyfer Down is well known in Christian music, but the band is also more.

I would vote Red but they aren't really underrated but Decyfer Down is fairly underrated and they are pretty stinkin good

Anthem Of The Lonely is their best song.

Anthem of the Lonely should convince anyone.

What this lead singer does with the Pre-Chorus/Chorus parts blows my mind. He merges them seamlessly.

12 Owl City Owl City Owl City is an American Synthpop/Electronica project created in 2007 in Owatonna, Minnesota; it is the most successful of several projects by singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Adam Young.

He is actually a Christian singer, not just a Christian who is a singer.

I wish more people knew that Adam is a Christian and a lot of his songs are Christian to like Shooting Star, Galaxies, and even Tidal Wave.
Vote him up.

He may not be underrated per se, but his Christian songs definitely are. You're Not Alone is a pretty good example. - LarkwingFlight

13 Anberlin Anberlin Anberlin 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.

Extremely underrated, they are simply amazing!

14 Disciple 13
15 Royal Tailor

Do this musician have a Facebook page?

Ready set go is the est song ever

16 Red Red Red is an American rock band from Nashville, Tennessee, formed in 2002. The band's lineup consists of singer Michael Barnes, guitarist Anthony Armstrong, and bassist Randy Armstrong.

Calling Red underrated is like calling Eminem underrated. In other words, not underrated at all. They are one of the biggest Christian rock groups there are! - LarkwingFlight
