3 Disciple 13

This band really speaks to he broken in a rock genre that is familiar. Good to listen to in your car.

This bands sound really speaks to a lot of us who struggle with bad decisions we have made and would like to change our lives. The messages are real world stuff.

Isn't Disciple 13 and Disciple Thirteen the same band well I will vote for them twice. If your struggling with something Disciple 13 has a couple of songs that will touch you, It did me - CFJgmail

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

4 We As Human

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

5 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.

6 Manafest Christopher Scott Greenwood, better known by his stage name Manafest, is a Canadian Christian rapper and rock artist from Pickering, Ontario.

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

Technically a singer. - LarkwingFlight

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

7 Red Red is an American rock band from Nashville, Tennessee, formed in 2002 by brothers guitarist Anthony Armstrong and bassist Randy Armstrong, with lead vocalist Michael Barnes.

Maybe not super underrated in the Christian world, but really underrated in the real world.

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.



They have such a beautiful tone and voice, they deserve more spotlight!

9 Anberlin Anberlin was an American rock band formed in Winter Haven, Florida in 1998. Since the beginning of 2007, the band consisted of lead vocalist Stephen Christian, guitarists Joseph Milligan and Christian McAlhaney, bassist Deon Rexroat, and drummer Nathan Young.

Extremely underrated, they are simply amazing!

10 Icon for Hire

Best band ever!

The Contenders

11 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.


12 X-Sinner

AMAZING style AC/DC..I love - noelrose80

13 Sanctus Real

These guys ARE AMAZING! Enough said!

Why the heck are these guys so underfround

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

14 Underoath Underoath is an American rock band from Tampa, Florida. Founded by Dallas Taylor and Luke Morton on November 30, 1997, in Ocala, Florida; subsequently its additional members were from Tampa.
15 Nine Lashes

Anthem Of The Lonely is their best song.

Anthem of the Lonely should convince anyone.

Should be higher. - LarkwingFlight

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

16 The Classic Crime
17 The Protest

I Bet No One have Heard Of This Band Check them Out they Have A New Album Called Legacy Coming Out On July 13

19 The Wrecking
20 Samestate
21 Owl City Owl City is an American Synthpop/Electronica project created in 2007 in Owatonna, Minnesota; it is the most successful of several projects by singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Adam Young.

He is actually a Christian singer, not just a Christian who is a singer.

I wish more people knew that Adam is a Christian and a lot of his songs are Christian to like Shooting Star, Galaxies, and even Tidal Wave.
Vote him up.

He may not be underrated per se, but his Christian songs definitely are. You're Not Alone is a pretty good example. - LarkwingFlight

24 Downhere

"Here I Am" is a great song, their songs always give me goosebumps! Such a good bang with no airplay or popularity/exposure! Definitely underrated.

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

25 Relient K

Good STUFF. Off the beaten path, original and clever.

26 Royal Tailor

Do this musician have a Facebook page?

Ready set go is the est song ever

27 Third Day
28 Jars of Clay Jars of Clay is a Christian rock band from Nashville, Tennessee. They met at Greenville College in Greenville, Illinois.

This was a great Christian metal band

They should be topten, they had a great impact on people

In a time when most Christian bands wanted to sound like others repent didn't. They had their own sound

33 Demon Hunter Demon Hunter is an American Christian metal band from Seattle, Washington, started in 2000 by brothers Don Clark and Ryan Clark. Although the brothers created the band together, only Ryan remains, since Don left the band to take care of his family.

Demon Hunter is a metal band, not a rock band. However, they are one of the best Christian bands out there. Alongside Manafest they are definitely underrated. - BillyBobJoe

36 Mastedon

Created and spearheaded by brothers John and Dino Elefante (Producers for Petra) in 1989, this Christian Hard Rock Band though not very influential were by and large one of the best Christian Rock bands ever despite only having three albums to their name.

37 Cloverton
