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

Went to one of their concerts in fresno and really really enjoyed everything! So glad I was able to enjoy music without worrying if this band was a part of the illuminati. I think its great that they actually do worship God and that they don't follow the rest of the cult.

Although not officially a Christian band, the original members were Christians. Great band. They should be ranked at least in the top 50.

Paramore Rock! Can't believe they are so low down! Decode is one of the bet songs

164 Desperation Band

They are really worshipers of God not just performers. It's all about the heart. God is looking in our hearts. It's not about how cool the music is. It's about worshiping God in spirit and in truth. I believe that music is created to worship God, It is our instrument to express how much we love and adore HIM. Christian Band must used their skills to glorify GOD. --jcw

Worship and rock how cool is that?

165 Audio Adrenaline

Hmm I didn't see it but its as classic a DC talk and petra

Seriously people most of these bands wouldn't be here without the likes of Audio A, Newsboys, and Petra paving the way for them. Truly Audio Adrenaline is a band that broke the mold of what a christian band was supposed to be. I'm not knocking bands like Skillet, Red, or TFK they obviously rock but there has to be room at the top for a band that made this list possible

I cannot believe people forget all about these pioneers of Christian rock! This band... What can I say about this band that expresses my love for them? Nothing, absolutely nothing. AudioA changed my life the very instant I heard Ocean Floor. Like Skillet, their genre evolved over the years, but every single album was a real treat. Unforgettable songs, impressive legacy that spans back to the mid-80's as A-180. Not just another worship band and far from it, these guys founded an orphanage in Haiti called The Hands and Feet Project to truly showcase their love for missions and God's work. These days, they are more widely known for their songs with Kevin Max of dc Talk and most recently, Adam Agee of Stellar Kart. For me however, it doesn't get any better than Mark, Will, Ben and Tyler. Until My Heart Caves In, AudioA will always be #1.

A lot of people say that music changed their lives, and if there is such an album among the Christian rock juggernauts of the 1990s, I'd say that album is bloom.

169 Protest for Pluto

I love protest for Pluto! I know them personally & they're not just a great band, they're great people too!

Up and coming Christian Rock Metal Band, amazing stage show, hard hitting original songs and a unique sound. - ljhillmanphotography

170 Children 18:3

They're my favorite band of all time! I listen to them all of the time. They're also the only band I know of that doesn't have a good song. Their style is quite unique in my opinion. They love to rock the house down, and their lyrics are really inspiring. I think the only reason they're not rated high is because they're not well-known.

173 Citipointe Live Band

I love Citipointe Live and their songs. Very inspiring

Should be totally one of the at least 20th.. Love that band!

174 Bloodgood

While most Christian hard rock/metal bands of that era while quite good, were just clones of popular secular bands. These guys were original with their own distinct sound.

Who is Chad aplin... Mike lee sang for this band I find no Chad aplin.

One of the best Christian Rock bands with an uncomprimising message, the truth of the gospel and that only Jesus Christ is the way, the truth, the life.

A very very good band

175 Stavesacre

A post grunge, hard punk band that often spoke of the very real struggles in the Christian walk - especially in a time where music in the Christian sphere was generally upbeat and happy. Stavesacre was thoughtful and at the same time in your face about the hardships of being in constant conflict with a world that does not want to hear the message of Christ along with the internal struggles of each our walks - waiting on the Lord, finding joy in the darkest times, fighting the demons of our past, coming to the realization that we are not meant for this world as it is, and dealing with our own complacency. The well versed bible scholar will even recognize verses strewn about the lyrics which give us a glance at the song writer heart when he wrote this music.

177 Confide
178 Mikeschair

They are amazing the lyrics of their song they touch your heart they are an amazing Christian band and I can't believe they are down here

179 Broken Heart
