Best Christian Rock Songs


The Top Ten

1 Whispers in the Dark - Skillet Whispers in the Dark - Skillet

Yes! I am glad I am not the only one who thinks that. I love skillet. Even though I agree with this list, my list would be a little different.
1. Whispers in the dark.
2. All Around Me - Flyleaf
3. Monster - Skillet
4. Strong Tower - Kutless
5. My Obsession - Skillet
6. Saturn - Skillet
7. I'm So Sick - Flyleaf

Whispers in the dark really is an amazing song. It not only brings out the Christianity in them but it is catchy with amazing lyrics and nice guitar and drum parts. There is no other song like Whispers in the Dark. It deserves to be number one. I can't think of another song to be number 1

This song should be at 1! Not even two! Here's what makes the song so great:

The tune
John's singing
Ben's solo
The meaning

And it's Skillet as well! Skillet should always #1!

I don't see how all these rock bands call themselves so called Christian band without even once singing about Jesus or singing about positivity instead they only sing about negativity and other times utter meaningless songs

Greatest song ever! Thanks Skillet! Really showcases how we know God is always there for us, we just have to listen to him!

2 Breathe Into Me - Red Breathe Into Me - Red

I love this song. When they started playing it at their concert, I just about cried for joy and I do not normally cry over anything (unless Skillet is playing "Lucy") but I love the message behind this song. It reminds me that I need God and is the song of my life.

This song is the most awesome song ever.

This is one of the best Christian songs period. It is the epitome of our relationship with God, when we've gone off he edge, and everything is falling apart. That is when we realize we need God to "breathe his life" in to us. This deserves to be #1

This Song is really awesome, and Red is one of my favorite band though, this song is just so meaningful.

3 Rebirthing - Skillet Rebirthing - Skillet

I love this song! Its amazing and every time I listen to it, it gives me the goose bumps and I feel absolutely amazing inside! I hope other people become as sensible about this song as I am! I love you God! I am a true believer and I will never leave your side, AMEN!

This one gotta be the perfect rock song, it's so powerful and so meaningful that every time I listen to it I literally have an orgasm of happiness.

I can feel the song! It's so meaningful! - lonewolfe12345

4 Awake & Alive - Skillet Awake & Alive - Skillet

Amazing Should be second after dead inside on the same album

Awake and Alive is the awesome song ever

Not only is the message awesome, so is the solo! Go Ben! - lonewolfe12345

5 Monster - Skillet Monster - Skillet

10? No ways! This song deserves a place in the top three for sure! Monster is one of the best Christian Rock Songs I have ever heard! I think this list is really unfair if this song remains at tenth place! - drishtortion

Come on! Absolutely one of the awesomest songs I have ever EVER heard! And probably my favorite Christian Rock song ever! At least it is in the top ten, though!

26! 26! Are you serious? It is not underrated but it is extremely/highly underrated! It should either be first or at least come somewhere in the top 10! Just not fair!

I think this song was #1 in Christian songs. - lonewolfe12345

6 Jesus Freak - DC Talk Jesus Freak - DC Talk

Any other band in this list... Claim to be Christian but I only enjoyed their music but could never worship God while singing these... I have heard all of these songs and bands all through my teens.. But if its called Christian then maybe It should remind me of God and my spirit should really sing..

I think Jesus Freak Should be ranked higher on the list it's what got Christian Rock started.

My ring tone. Always garners attention. What will people say...

This song brings back so many memories. - RiverClanRocks

7 Already Over - Red Already Over - Red

It's Already Over Now!

So many good choices. there's not a song on here I don't like but this has to be my favorite; I I had to pick.


8 Feed the Machine - Red Feed the Machine - Red

Its only 26 because its new it will go up. this is one of Christian rocks most amazing songs to date. Red is just all around awesome. The rest of their album until we have faces is great too.

Excellent song, my favorite RED song. - LarkwingFlight

9 Move - Thousand Foot Krutch Move - Thousand Foot Krutch

I listen to this song on loop all the time - thebounty

10 Higher - P.O.D. Higher - P.O.D.

This is the best song ever by the best band ever, Christian or not. And by the way, whoever says P.O. D isn't Christian you have no idea what you are talking about.

The Newcomers

? Crash - Decyfer Down Crash - Decyfer Down
? *fin - Anberlin *fin - Anberlin

Great track to cap off a great album by Anberlin one of their best Christian songs.

The Contenders

11 Perfect Life - Red Perfect Life - Red

This is off of Red's new album: Release the Panic. It has a kinda different sound, but it's one of their best efforts to date. Perfect Life is the best song of the album, and will soon be dominating this list. It is only 60 right now because is just came out last week.

It's a great song that shows the reality of persons that say that they have a perfect life and isn't like that... It's the best song I have ever heard...

THIS IS MY FAVOURITE BAND. It should be in the number 1 spot

12 Fully Alive - Flyleaf Fully Alive - Flyleaf

This song is flat out legit, there's just so much emotion in it!

Aw man, I sorta-kinda-ish grew up with this song - especially the band - in junior high/high school service at church. awesome song! Love it!

13 Death of Me - Red Death of Me - Red

This song is musical genius! This should be too 15 if say!

14 Not Gonna Die - Skillet Not Gonna Die - Skillet
15 Take the Bullets Away - We As Human Take the Bullets Away - We As Human

The song has a perfect mix of metal and rock as well as a good underlying Christian meaning to the song which makes it very unique and a good song

This and Zombie are the best songs on this album which is probably the best album since Comatose!

16 Savior - Skillet Savior - Skillet

Jesus Singing a song over you... His desire and love is surpasses all understanding, no matter what you've done or who you are - he loves you

17 Boom - P.O.D. Boom - P.O.D.

I think it's cool they named a movie after this song.

18 Outlaws - Disciple Outlaws - Disciple

This is a super-duper awesome song. This song makes you fly.. I mean its so so good and pacey that you just can't stop listening to it.. Disciple's 'After the world' is good too! And Switchfoot's songs should also be higher! - arpanvinayak

19 Be My Escape - Relient K Be My Escape - Relient K

This should be number 1 because Relient K is the best christian band ever and this is their best song. The Show by Hawk Nelson should be on this list and it should be number 2. Breathe Into Me should definitely NOT be number 4 on this list because Red is an okay band and that's not even their best song. Pressing On by Relient K should be on this list. Friend Like That by Hawk Nelson should be on this list. And Get Back Up by tobyMac should be on this list.

Definitely should be in top 20 at least. great combination of rock and God.

I want to learn how to play this on the piano. Badly. - RiverClanRocks

20 Unbreakable - Fireflight Unbreakable - Fireflight

This has been my favorite song since I was like... 6 years old.
I listen to the radio when I go to sleep and when ever this song came on I would get so excited and in the car when it came on I would ask my dad to turn it up.
This song has always inspired me to never give up.

My favourite song right now, best song I've ever heard ( I am not joking about it)
