3 We As Human

Prodigy Band of the legendary John Cooper. Twisted sound and good feeling behind the lyrics, give em a listen!

4 Fireflight

First of all that sound they have is awesome with the bass and power cords and then you add dawns vocals and your like can it get better and it does when you hear the lyrics. WOW.. When I received christ I kinda though my music was gonna be organs and blue hair but that's so not true. If your needing something new try fireflight and turn it up loud. Thanks kyle

What can I say? They're on my playlist I pump while driving transit bus, and I have people who have taken their headphones off to listen to them, and several people ask who they are. That says a lot. Great lyrics, great vocals, great music that is well above the same old 'pop' radio.

5 Manafest Manafest

Best three songs from Manafest are- Impossible, Bring The Ruckus, and Avalanche

Agree he's underrated and amazing check out the fighter album it amazing

Manafest is one of my favorite rock artists. It surprises me that he isn't as popular as he should be. No Plan B, Human, and Renegade are my 3 favorites from him, but he has a lot of awesome songs. - BillyBobJoe

Technically a singer. - LarkwingFlight

6 Disciple 13

This Bands music speaks to the broken looking for a path the change their life for the better. The live concert is awesome! Keep it up Disciple 13 - forthemusic

This band is Definitely under rated, I like them better live than recorded but either way they are very uplifting with their music. - CFJgmail

Good music great lyrics, they have a heart for recovery through Jesus Christ I hope they get more exposure soon - forthemusic

They are Rockers for Jesus for sure hope they get more exposure with their music

7 Red Red Red is an American rock band from Nashville, Tennessee, formed in 2002. The band's lineup consists of singer Michael Barnes, guitarist Anthony Armstrong, and bassist Randy Armstrong.

Calling Red underrated is like calling Eminem underrated. In other words, not underrated at all. They are one of the biggest Christian rock groups there are! - LarkwingFlight

Between Red and Nine Lashes.


8 Downhere

They only play two of their songs on the radio, they should play more, like all of them are good for the radio.

Little to no Airplay. Listen to Last Amen and Last Night's Daydream.

Maybe not what you'd consider "rock," more like alternative rock. But still more underrated than TFK and Red. - LarkwingFlight

9 Nine Lashes

Anthem Of The Lonely is their best song.

Anthem of the Lonely should convince anyone.

What this lead singer does with the Pre-Chorus/Chorus parts blows my mind. He merges them seamlessly.

The Contenders

12 Decyfer Down Decyfer Down Decyfer Down is a Christian rock band formed in 1999 and based in Morehead City, North Carolina. Until 2002 – the year that Christopher Clonts joined the band – they went by the moniker Allysonhymn (pronounced All-eyes-on-Him). Decyfer Down is well known in Christian music, but the band is also more.

I would vote Red but they aren't really underrated but Decyfer Down is fairly underrated and they are pretty stinkin good

They are so underrated. They have released four albums and I must admit all of their songs are great. Their post grunge style is great. And I gotta hand it to TJ Harris.

Their live show is awesome, their music speaks of recovery from whatever you struggle with through God. the musicians are top notch.I heard them at a Celebrate Recovery concert a few years ago. - gailmdls

Their songs talk about everyday struggles and how to deal with them with God's help. Very uplifting and encouraging!
