B’s enjoyment of Christian alternative music is not new. And he comes by it honestly. AND, some of it, is actually quite good. If you’re into punk, MxPx is pretty alright. Dogwood is decent hard rock. B could quote dozens more. But I would understand, if you were not familiar with it, the images and sounds that might come to mind…

As much as the music itself is decent, if you’re decidedly not Christian, like me, you have to get past some of the inherent preachiness, so approach with caution. Any way you slice it though, Christianity-based puns are great, aren’t they?


Here’s a few bands if you’re interested:
Plankeye, Underoath, Overcome, Living Sacrifice, MxPx, Slick Shoes, Project 86, Relient K, Five Iron Frenzy.
All of them are worth checking out, ranging from regular alternative rock, metal, punk and ska. Yes, some of them do get “preachy”, but the music is, in my opinion, excellent.

    I’d part that sea.

    What? No Stryper?

    • boliver

      I listened to a bit of Stryper, but more Whitecross.

  3. Adam

    For the alternative just check out youtube for the song “Christian Side-Hug.” It’s a big pile of garbage. But the people who mock it are worth watching.

    • boliver

      Lol, this I gotta see.


    I’m going to have a listen.

    • boliver

      It’s worth checking some of it out :)

    Wow…Christian rap…? Unimaginable!

  11. Sareen

    PURE awesomeness! I love the play on words here “Rap sure” :D

  12. Justin

    For some reason, I suspect “Nail me baby” is another song on this cd.

  13. Chewbacca

    As a non-Christian, the one i like is ‘Petra’ – from the time Christian rock was deemed ‘satanic’ by Christian leaders :)

    • boliver

      Oddly enough, that’s one of the few I never got into. But man, Overcome, Living Sacrifice, Blindside…all awesome.

      He he, it’s true, it’s all heathen and evil ;)
