104 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.

Saw live in concert during Don't Wait For The Movie tour. Some of the greatest artists of all time! My number1!

105 Spoken

Surprised these guys are listed they rock!
But pretty hard and a lot of these bands are pretty easy listening... Or not even rock... I like mercy me and casting crowns, but I wouldn't rate those on a rack list, maybe country and Hillsong great worship music (not rock). Hey have not even seen blindside mentioned yet. Fig a figout, danerins

I loved the album "what remains", it had such a powerful message... You better make a choice in the God you will follow

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 Sixpence None the Richer
108 Becoming the Archetype
109 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

110 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.

111 Norma Jean

They are the best

112 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.

113 Downhere

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.

114 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 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.

116 Theocracy Theocracy Theocracy is a Christian progressive power metal band founded in 2002 by Matt Smith of Athens, Georgia.

Best Christian Metal band I've heard so far, it's like Metallica + Dream Theater + Bunch of other metal bands with very very very strong straightforward Christian Lyrics. They deserve to be in the top 10 along with Flyleaf. They also posses one of the greatest instrumentals in the Christian genre.

Theocracy has no equal in the power/melodic metal genre, Christian or secular. They are absolutely second to none.

Listening to them right now :) I actually just found them today and I already know they are great! Their lyrics are so profound and poetic. They have a classic rock type sound which is not really my thing but I'm growing to like these guys. Theocracy fans, don't shoot me for not knowing the members. After all, I just found them today. That being said, whoever the lead singer is has some serious vocal ability! Mad props! They definitely deserve to be higher up on the list, top 50 at least!

Theocracy is so talented and unique, there lyrics are rock solid best Christian metal band out, way better then demon hunter

117 Golden Resurrection

Great neoclassical metal that praises Jesus

118 38th Parallel 38th Parallel 38th Parallel was a Christian rock band formed in Ames, Iowa. Before being signed they received extensive airplay in Iowa markets alongside other CCM Artists.

This is the best metal band to beat Linkin Park

119 A Hill to Die Upon
120 Deas Vail

Great music, great harmonies, beautiful male falsetto with female harmony. Good band with good lyrics. Check them out

Chad Aplin wrote and recorded the songs for this band, well all the good songs they had. he worked in a studio in Iowa, Chad Aplin is very likely the greatest guitar player ever to live.
