Best Christian Rock Bands


The Contenders: Page 7

121 For All Eternity

The one of my favorite band their lyrics is truly god message...

122 Resurrection

None of these other bands could have existed without The Ressurection Band. They began as a vision, and self funded their first recording. There did not exist an 'Contemporary Christian' industry to support them. They only followed, faced constant criticism by Churches, and led thousands though Christ. They never left the inner cities of Chicago, and there music is as real as it gets. They can tear it up better than anyone, and are by far the best songwriters I have heard. Give your soul a treat and check them out. Music to Raise the Dead!

Resurrection Band is not only the Very First true Christian Metal/Rock band ever releasing their first album in 1972 but they consistently registered the greatest spiritually challenging Lyrics of all time! Imaging Jimi Hendrix and Janice Joplin playing with Lynyrd Skynyrd; that's the quality Rock Resurrection band offered with the strongest spiritual mesages; BEST EVER HANDS DOWN!

The first true Christian rock band playing a mix of hard rock /metal/alternative /and blues with challenging and sometimes (mystic) lyrics excellent musicianship one of the best no question also they are the real thing in their lives and in their music no smaltz here check them out you and your soul will be glad you did Ressurection Band Music to Raise the Dead!...

123 For Today For Today For Today is an American Christian metalcore band from Sioux City, Iowa, formed in 2005. They are currently signed to Nuclear Blast Records.

Most of these bands on here are not really Christian bands. When I want a band that has lyrics that give me goosebumps, I go to For Today. A band that is truly not ashamed of the Gospel of Jesus Christ! They preach a message every time they play. The singer Mattie is so filled with the Spirit of God! When I want a band that has lyrics that I can praise God with, I go to For Today! And I am not the biggest fan of growling vocals, but Mattie has vocals in which I can understand. If you can't understand what the singer is saying, why would you listen to a Christian band at all? Besides the lyrics, their music is fantastic! Some of the greatest breakdowns, and crushingly headbangingly heavy beats! True metal and true Christians = true band!

These guys are definitely one of the best Christian heavy metal bands ever. Take a listen to them sometime! And even if you don't like heavy metal they Do have some lighter songs like talmidim

I love this band! They are metal with screams but the music and lyrics capture the fiery passion of god. Songs to check out are "fearless" "foundation" "my confession" "crown of thorns" " open heaven"

For Today is the most genuinely Christ-centered, gospel-saturated band I have come across. They are effectively influenced by the Holy Spirit to produce the most piercing songs. They are hands down my favorite rock band.

124 Guardian

Guardian is my favorite Christian band. What's not to like? Jamie Rowe's vocals, Tony Palacios's stellar guitar work... And a tight rhythm section manned by David Bach and Karl Ney. They were able show the tenderness of God's love with their ballads, and also the greatness of His Majesty with their rock anthems...

Guardian is one of the best Christian bands ever. All of their albums are just amazing!

Again these guys rocked in with Petra and Stryper. Great choice must be on list

125 Daniel Amos

They are easily the most influential Christian rock band to ever exist. Websites like this (while fun) often fail to reach out to music lovers with a deeper understanding of quality music. Skillet may be a good band, but their efforts ultimately fall short of DA. The same can honestly be said about mostly every band above. They're a classic and timeless band. - BKAllmighty

By far the bet band on this list. They should be in any top 10 list of rock music ever. Brilliant, genius song writing. Criminally underrated. Time for you people to get your heads out of your you know what and listen to Daniel Amos aka the.

They're still criminally low, I see. It's a crime that they're 154 on a list when they are, without a doubt, the only worthy choice for #1. These guys are to Christian music what the Beatles were to popular music. - BKAllmighty

The have some pretty catchy tunes.

126 Falling Up

Really underrated band that should have gotten more attention while they were together because their music has lots of meaning to it, not only to Christians but anybody that was influenced by this music. "Maps", "Falling in Love" are a couple songs that speak to people whether you are religious or not, even though they did make it in a religious perspective. One of my favorite bands right next to Decyfer Down. Good Music!

This band should be number 1 or number 2 behind Skillet. They are a truly amazing band that makes incredibly unique music. Can't compare them to any other Christian Rock band. All the other ones sound a lot similar compared to this band. This band does completely their own thing and it's amazing.

These guys are awesome, seriously more people should check these guys out, they write amazing music!

"most underrated bands out there"

131 Three Days Grace Three Days Grace Three Days Grace is a Canadian rock band formed in Norwood, Ontario in 1997 with a line-up consisting of guitarist and lead vocalist Adam Gontier, drummer and backing vocalist Neil Sanderson, and bassist Brad Walst.

Three days grace is not a Christian band but I see the confusion.

134 This Beautiful Republic

I know many people don't know their songs but this band's pretty epic too. They're disbanded now but I never experienced to get used to their songs. Great band

This band is awesome... Come on try a song called Undo or New Day. I was looking for them in the top ten only to realize they are down here. No.

135 Mastedon

John and Dino Elefante, "It's A Jungle Out There" great rock CD but hard to find, they also wrote the Kansas song "Fight Fire With Fire"

136 Axiom

These guys are so good! Wait till they get mainstream, then everyone will be loving them! Shot Heard Round the World was their first song, and I can't wait for more!

137 Slick Shoes

I am Chad Aplin from Iowa and I wrote all the best songs for this band and many others... I recorded them in Iowa

138 December Radio

Awesome band! Awesome lyrics!
