Greatest Christian Hard Rock Bands


The Contenders: Page 2

21 The Birdsongs
22 Petra

Not on the top ten? Petra is the greatest Christian rock band ever. They started it all.

Best Christian rock band ever they paved the way for many!

Petra is pathetic. I don't know how anyone could consider them rock, unless maybe you have never heard an electric guitar before. - Joe-Fenceton

Petra was a great rock band for their time! I saw them in concert twice and they were all about God and bring the truth! I was more a fan when Greg Volz was lead singer and was amazed with his range!

24 Love and Death

Brian head welch..

Such an amazing band w/ a great back ground story

25 We As Human

I absolutely love this band. Their song Zombie featuring John Cooper of Skillet is awesome with a powerful message. If you like rock/hard rock or metal give this band a listen. I think you will really like them!

In my opinion, We As Human is THE BEST BAND IN THE HISTORY OF EXISTENCE. Despite there only being one album of there's out at the time I love it!

These guys are a fantastic Christian rock band! Give them a listen.

26 Project 86

This band is great! They have been around for a long time and are one of the sickest Christian rock bands out there

Saw these guys at Joshua Fest and they were so awesome! Great band and lots of energy!

Best band on this list but they're so much more

Hands down the deepest, most complex, true to the music Cristian Hardrock band... I have been listening to them since the early 2000s! Every album is different and will always leave you pleasantly surprised.

27 Rez Band

Great band from Chicago that is blues rock, great evangelistic lyrics

The Pioneers of the Christian Rock, their lyrics is awesome.

Real rock n roll with the right kind of passion. All these years later and they still sound fresh and relevant. Can't believe these pioneers are not at the top!

28 Family Force 5

FF5 Rocked when they had Soul Glow...(Solomon Olds), their newer stuff is ok, better lyrics, but Solomon was the heart and soul of the band...

29 Jerusalem
30 King James
31 Seventh Day Slumber

Seventh Day Slumber is beyond the shadow of a doubt my all time favorite band! Got the chance to see them live last year. Even got the pleasure to serve at their table selling their merchandise. Awesome musicians and great people!

Fantastic group just found them a few days ago and can't stop listening

The real deal! Gotta see them live!

32 Relentless Flood

Little known, but these guys are bloody awesome! Definitely worth a listen.

Local band from NC but don't let that fool you aobut these guys. They rock hard, with great riffs, and a punding drummer that's also their vocalist. They don't water down their lyrics when it comes to Christ. Trust me you know the name of Jesus in their songs.

33 Jeremy Camp

Not hard rock but still an amazing artist. - Joe-Fenceton

34 Manafest

Impossible and bring the ruckus, enough said. (even though they both feature Trevor McNevan of TFK)

35 Whitecross

The song Resist Him is the highlight. Love it!

Underrated Band!

36 Bride

This is one of the oldest band and loved their song scarecrow that narrates the salvation story in a profound way..

This was the first Christian hard rock band I fell in love with! Loved Snakes in the Playground!

37 Relient K

Amazing! My favourite band. They do just about everything. Some songs are pop punky, others have a bit of an emo edge, some sound indie, and there are lots of humourous songs such as Moodrings or Sadiehawkins dance.

38 Living Sacrifice

Voted best new heavy metal band when they first came out by heavy metal magazine

40 Oh, Sleeper Oh, Sleeper Oh, Sleeper is an American Christian metalcore band from Fort Worth, Texas. Previously signed to Solid State Records they are currently operating independently.

One of the greatest bands I ever seen or heard, power full lyrics. If you haven't heard of them listen to them now. The song Reveries of flight have me goose bumps, the song The finisher talks about in the end God will put satan in his place "your whispers may sway the weak, but when I speak it roars the seas... The angels will sing to a world reborn they will sing as I cut off your horns, Ill cut off your horns. " They're amazing
