Best Christian Rock Songs


The Top Ten

1 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

great solo

2 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

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

I just love

4 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

This song is so energizing,so motivating it should be number 1.SKILLET IS THE BEST BAND EVER!

5 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!

6 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.

7 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...

great song

8 Move - Thousand Foot Krutch

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

9 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.

Best band ever. :Oh

Just wow should be first...

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

10 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.


The Contenders

11 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!

12 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


13 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

14 Rise - Skillet

Of the new album, third lead single. I would say it's in the top five for Skillet, for sure. The lyrics found here are more profound than anything found on Awake. There are also some electronic flourishes which really add life to the song, reminding me of the older albums like Invincible and Alien Youth.

Why is this down here. Its the best rock song I ever heard. Its very catchy with the melody and all. I know its not their best song but its supposed to be higher.

The album is great.rise is my favourite, should be at the top.

Rise album is awesome

15 Boom - P.O.D.

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

16 Death of Me - Red

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

17 Not Gonna Die - Skillet
18 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.

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

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

Best band ever and great song!

19 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!

Such a deep and meaningful song! Amazing!

20 Comatose - Skillet

Not my favorite believe it or not but a very close second. How is Fight Inside by Red not on here because that song crushes any of these songs well except comatose, its just a little better than comatose.

This has got to be the baddest Christian rock song of all times. I'd put it among the top 5. Skillet should just be number 1.

Come on guyx! If you all listen to this beautiful song... automatically this will go no. 1

21 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)

22 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

Rocks my face off!

23 The Last Night - Skillet

If the last night is 44th, then the top 46 shouldn't exist...

24 Holy - Lightswitch
25 Bring Em Out - Hawk Nelson

Definitely the greatest Christian punk rock song of all time from the greatest christian punk rock album of all time!

26 Dare You to Move - Switchfoot

DYTM is one of the best songs ever. It's the song for which switchfoot is known for. This song changed my soul, gave me energy when I gave up, and soothes me when I am tired. My all time favourite song.

This song should be way higher than this. No ther song will touch your soul like this song. This and Your Love Is A Song are 2 epic songs

This is such a good song. Unfortunately, it's the reason most people don't know that Switchfoot is a Christian band. - LarkwingFlight

Obviously should be in the top 10 over 8 million plays on spotify. Inspired a lot of Christian youth to not be shy about their faith.

27 Set It Off - P.O.D.
28 War of Change - Thousand Foot Krutch

One of the best songs ever. Just listen and you will like it

This song is really amazing.

29 Never Alone - Barlowgirl

Should be a lot higher. So much passion and beauty in this song. Will never forget the first time that I heard it. The sing makes me so emotional and I just love listening to it!

I think the song is Barlow Girl's best song. Most of their other music is boring. Never Alone ends right when your getting into it.

This song beautiful and has so much feeling behind it

I've always loved this song. - LarkwingFlight

30 Buried Beneath - Red
31 Not Alone - Red
32 Phenomenon - Thousand Foot Krutch
33 Sorry About Your Parents - Icon for Hire

This song is strong and beautiful, and although Icon doesn't like to consider themselves a Christian band, all of the members are Christian and they include many Christian ideals in their songs. "Sorry About Your Parents" has good morals and gives a good message to struggling teens.

This is one of the greatest Christian rock songs of all time. This is what Christian rock should be about. Icon is a thousand times better than overrated bands like Skilket, whose lyrics are less than interesting.

This is what Christian music should be about.

34 High Above It All - For All Seasons
35 Dear X, You Don't Own Me - Disciple

Should be higher.

The String insturments make a wonderful build to the hard drums and electric guitars.

very good

Yas, I love it

36 Psycho - 12 Stones
37 Rawkfist - Thousand Foot Krutch

Reminds me of a friend of mine. Great song. - RiverClanRocks

This should be number one! There is NO better band then TFK! Incredible rap-rock song!

38 Frontline - Pillar

If you think skillets song whispers in the dark is good compared to this song then you aren't a rock fan.

39 Falling Inside the Black - Skillet

Greatest song. Epic. Please vote for this. Listen and you will know why I am requesting you to do this.

This song is the best of all time

40 Empty - Love and Death

Love and death is a great band check out washed by blood best song ever

41 No Plan B - Manafest

More of a rap song then a rock song but still a very good song. Manafest has a pretty good voice.

42 Fire and Fury - Skillet
43 I'm Not Alright - Sanctus Real
44 The Older I Get - Skillet
45 *fin - Anberlin

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

46 All Around Me - Flyleaf

Oh my gosh this is also a song that I grew up on

Love it. First time hearing.

47 Come Home - Relentless Flood

This is a top 5 Christian Rock song. No doubt!

Hear this song it is amazing. - paasadani

48 Dark Horses - Switchfoot

This is one of Switchfoots best rock songs! It NEEDS to be top 10!

49 Godspeed - Anberlin

Nice song. Really a blast of music... Try it to know it. Sure A worth of try. Even listen to anberlin, s Paper thin hymn. Simply Superb

It blends in beautifully with the debut at the beginning of their album Cities.

50 By God - Disciple
