Skillet is the best of all best.
I mean, seriously?
They could rock this hard and still having real faith in Jesus Christ? I’ve been listening to them for years.
They’re just the best!
A very difficult choice between Skillet and Red for the top spot. Red may have got a great singer but Skillet really has got something extra which makes them the top rock band…
Skillet is a great group that puts thought into every word they use, that’s what makes them the best, it’s not always about the singer its also about the lyrics.
BEST BAND EVER!
Their songs, the majority of them so far, concerns the inner struggles of a Christian, not only Christians, which in reality all of us has. They contain our darkest sides, revealing how we struggle to contain it and in turn is the one that consumes us. Red’s songs(on my opinion) helps realize that there is always that burden, that struggle, that fear, that choice, that we humans were given the capability of. Go RED. (Sorry for the long comment)
I listen to hardrock and post-grunge bands like Three Days Grace,
Breaking Benjamin, Smile Empty Soul, Rev Theory and Story of the Year.
None of these are Christian. To be honest, I didn’t think Christian rock had much to offer for me. I was looking for emotional music, stuff about struggles and feelings and not the conventional hallelujah. When I hear that too often, I get the feeling it’s… Empty. They don’t mean what they’re saying, they just shout it out and say what their audience want to hear. Going through a tough time myself, I preferred darker songs about misery. It was around this time that I came across Red. Starting off with Breathe Into Me and Death Of Me, I noticed their use of classic instruments such as the cello. I missed that in my usual music list, so I put them there.
After a while of increasing admiration (“wow! This siunds really good! “) I began to see their deepness, their honesty. Gradually I started to appreciate them not only for what they
Red gets my numero uno vote! I love how they should that we aren’t just some shiny, happy being who, because we love Jesus, get away with whatever we want. We are horrible people for what we do to him daily and He deserves better. And he still takes us as we are; Praise the King!
As a kid, the only Christian music I thought was out there, was whatever was played at church on Sunday mornings, because that was what played on the christian radio stations at home. My mind was blown in middle school when I was introduced to Christian Rock bands. I had no idea that Christian music could sound so cool and amazing! It started mild with Barlow Girl and Superchick and gradually grew into Skillet, Flyleaf and Fireflight. One day, I came across “Breathe Into Me”, and “Pieces” by Red, and fell in love! The depth of the lyrics and the difference in the sound between these two songs, coming from the same band was incredible! That was ten years ago. Even with bands such as Thousand Foot Krutch, The Protest, Kutless, Skillet, and We Came as Romans all at my disposal, Red is still my all time favorite!
3. Thousand Foot Krutch
They’re amazing musicaly wise and have catchy lyrics! They got me hooked on Christian rock. I love them!
When you think sheer rock with the Christian attitude that we wish to express sometimes, you think Thousand Foot Krutch. Love this band!
They have creative lyrics, making it addictive and you want to hear it everyday
This is overall a great band. They rock but they also give glory to God
All of switchfoot’s songs are very complex musical wise. Their lyrics also make you think about what they are trying to say. These guys should be at the top of this list.
Switchfoots songs are great I’ve listened to them since meant to live album! I don’t understand why they are so down on this chart?
Sorry, but my opinion is that: Switchfoot is the best, they are #1.
They come first, or should, not only for their verses, but for their spirit, for the love they have and who sings it: God. After they give charitable donations facts and are poor.
This band has some of the deepest lyrics in the christian scene. Really made me think about my faith and they have been there during rough times in my life. RESPECT
5. Relient K
The best of all christian bands, especially from “The Anatomy of the Tongue in Cheek” to “Mmhmm” albums. They have been my favorite band since I first heard them. The order on this list should be:
1. Relient K (Nothing can beat “More Than Useless” and “Be My Escape”)
2. Thousand Foot Krutch (The only band that I like almost as much as Relient K. The album “The End is Where we Begin” made me really like this band. )
3. Hawk Nelson (I love there podcasts)
4. FM Static (Another great band from Trevor McNevan)
5. Petra (The band that started it all. )
6. Family Force 5 (Let me see you WOBBLE! )
7. TobyMac (Even after dc Talk he’s still great. Acually better. )
8. Dc Talk (“Jesus Freak” is probably the most known christian rock song ever. )
9. Switchfoot (Everyone likes Switchfoot it seems. )
10. Skillet (A great band, but a little overrated)
Hope you all agree!
Relient K is my favorite band and has been for about 6 years now. Their songs are meaningful, witty, and musically interesting. No matter how many times I listen to them, I always enjoy it.
There The Best Ever… Been Listening to Them For About 4 years now… Haven’t heard anything better!.
Best band of all time
Brilliant band, got all but one of their albums
Really inspiring, meaningful lyrics, tend to be what I need to hear when I put on my ipod
Recommended to anyone
Kutless has helped grow my faith they are so much better then 6 their lyrics are so much better then just the music because its the lyrics that touch you
Kutless’ promise of a lifetime meaning,… was very touching.. sea of faces, smile, and the others also do… they are given awesome talent and it’s good to see them enhanced with GOD~@@!
One of the best bands out there regardless of genre! Much higher than 6th. That’s a travesty!
Greatest Christian band heck any band of all time. Their new album horseshoes and Hand grenades is one of the greatest pieces of work. Are they lacking in their live performances? No not even close they are BETTER live than they are on the CD. All of their live performances on YouTube were given a 100. Lead by Kevin Young at the mic they truly seem like a genuine group of guys that are worshiping god through their music. You would be foolish to not put them in your top Christian bands and even more foolish to not give their music a chance. Go out and buy Horseshoes and Hand Grenades today.
“When the lights go up and the game is on are you ready for me cause I’m ready for you”
Should be #1, no question. They have an impressive body of work and it all rocks! That’s right, all of it rocks. I thought they were awesome before seeing them in concert. Then I saw them live. Incredible is about the best word to describe it. You never have to wonder where they stand with the Lord either. They are blatantly Christian and not ashamed of the Gospel. Rock on, Disciple!
Wow, I can’t believe that Disciple not in the top five. They are one of the best bands ever. A great mix between songs that actually rock and some of the best worship songs out there. I have been listening to Disciple for 5 years now and I haven’t found a band other than Skillet that I like as much.
They are awesome in my book. BEST BAND EVER!
One of the most underrated bands. Simply one of the best. They are in touch with their fans from some of the footage I have seen on youtube. Powerful and driving their music artistry delivers clear positive messages to all ages. If you haven’t heard Anberlin’s music. Make a point to hear them today. You won’t be disappointed!
They’ve got good instrumentals in every song, whether it’s a solo or not. You can tell they know their instruments very well. The songs were deeply written, inspiring and rocking. The vocalist’s voice is unlike any other and can easily be identified as an Anberlin song. They are in my Top 4, Skillet, Red, Thousand Foot Krutch, and then Anberlin. For me, their best work is Feel Good Drag. Just listen to this song then you be the judge.
My favorite band now, just love their music! Best thing to study to and to get my day to start looking up.
Clean, hard rocking sound that is reminiscent of some of the high pitched 80’s metal bands
9. Disciple Thirteen
The songs ‘One Day at a time’, “Lord Find me’ and The Face of God really have great messages in the music and lyrics, Most of their music is influenced by Celebrate Recovery and Twelve steps programs. They found a way to make it Rock and show Victory.
This band mixes classic rock with Christian rock. Really a fun band live.
They have a cd coming out in october. It was recorded at Big Fish Studios in Southern California. The same studio that switchfoot and P.O.D. records at.
Disciple Thirteen Christian Rock Group really touched a lot of people with their music at Spirit Celebration Fest. I hope to see them on a Rock and Worship Tour someday. They have a great Live show, or any Christian Rock tour that comes to our area I would like to hear them next to bands like Switchfoot or Mercy Me they would fit with any modern chritan Rock genre.
Great band good songs, really enjoyed them in concert
10. Family Force 5
Why isn’t TobyMac on this list, he is better than anyone on this list but family force five is pretty good
TobyMac isn’t a band, so he can’t be on this list. (then again, half of the top ten aren’t ROCK, so…)
Hillsong, Casting Crowns, and MercyMe are not rock. Creed is not Christian. This should be at the top, even though not all their stuff is completely rock, they rock every style they do so they win.
I don’t understand why my favorite band ever is not on the list. These guys are all about having a party for Jesus. They make listening to Christian music actually fun. How can you possibly not resist the power of Love Addict?
Not rock. Techno. Wrong genre bro
