have you heard of reliant k?
yea they’re awesome
It’s NOT an oxymoron.
Here are some bands you should check out (try looking for their myspace page or on youtube to listen to some of their songs):
Thousand Foot Krutch
Check out this link: http://www.last.fm/music/Fireflight/+…
They are artists similar to Fireflight. If you want to search for artists similar to another band, say Skillet, just search for the band’s main page and then click the “Similar” tab - 4th from the right.
Yes, there is.
Just because YOU don’t consider it GOOD music doesn’t mean that EVERYONE agrees with you, nor does it make it the truth. There IS GOOD christian music, and just because it isn’t played as much or isn’t as popular as those bands you mentioned doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist.
You are right. And you have to listen to christian radio stations to hear the greats in christian music….there’s 2 different types of music, christian and secular, and within those you have all the different genres. In the secular music of course there isn’t going to be christian bands…at least not in the past…lots of christian bands are being played on secular music stations and becoming very popular nowadays though, and someday this will be the past. You have to look into the christain music history to find those greats. And they are there.
It’s much more then a genre b/w secular and christian music.
Have you ever listend to christian music stations?
The lyrics are amazing, the music is played very well in most bands (but just like in secular music, of course not everyone is perfect), overall the quality of songs is greater then in the secular world (probably 90% of the music played is good vs. 50% on other stations). There are many amazing singers with voices that no one can match in the secular music world (just ask me to name a few), and the message is positive, encouraging, and uplifting.
And again, it’s much more just then a genre b/w secular and christian music.
Actually, I prefer the older bands/musicians. But there are a lot of good new bands, too.
And I’ve tried explaining to you why.
Yes, if a band is good it will become popular.
It’s because of the differences in the message b/w christian and secular music. It’s because of the religious aspect of it. You will never find a SONG priasing Jesus in secular music, even if it’s the best song in the world. Because of the message, that IS the ONLY reason!
Take Rebecca St. James. She is one of the most popular christian female artists in christian music. And yet her songs will never be played on secular radio stations. Why? Because of her message. Because she sings about Jesus and God. That is why. It has nothing to do with the quality of her music, the quality of her voice, it has to do with her message.
And there are a couple who are popular in certain areas of music. Skillet and Amy Grant to name 2.
What do you think of this song? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XJov4M…
Or this one? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2FKajS…
ok.. wow i’ve missed a lot.. but i have to say Xeno, ur being a bit bias. I’m just asking for someone who knows some good christian bands, if you don’t particularly like christian music then you really don’t have to answer.
plus christian music isn’t popular just because the “public” and the “media” follow the stereotype that christian music is boring and slow with organs..even when people hear about christianity they think of boring and judgmental people who only respect their christian friends. but if you really got to research the religion, you’ll see that its not what you thought at all, christians should be known as loving.
Toby mac is way cool ithink, made to love you and burn 4 u you .
there’s a difference between christian music and secular music, sure, but the difference isn’t in what notes are used and how those notes relate to each other.
i mean, music theory doesn’t suddenly and completely change, just because a song is “christian” instead of “secular.” musically there’s no reason to categorize them separately.
the only reason i said “good christian rock” is an oxymoron is because, muscially speaking, every single christian rock song i’ve ever heard has had the same cliched chords and modulations and whatnot.
i’m not exactly a christian rock connoisseur, tho. i like my religious music on giganto-enormous organs and big huge choirs, thank you very much.
Hey, Jet, have you ever heard of Plumb? You might like her.
Thank you for explaining, Trent. And I agree, there are a lot of songs that do sound very, very similar…espicially if you’re looking at a lot of songs from just one artist. But they’re not all the same, and I think that there are some good songs out there.
Yeah, Toby Mac is really good :D
christian woman by type o negative! awesome song
I think christian musik dont make the mainstream because the industry is minipulated by dark individuals who dont want gods name praised.
hey jet have you heard within temptation or nightwish great metal
Thank you Akithma.
And those bands you mentioned are 2 of my absolute favorites!
although its a completly different genre [the last trumpet]by LYRICS BORN is an awsome song
I’ll check that song out, thanks :)
cool shout back if you agree HOPE
I listened to it…not usually the type of music I listen to, but by the end of the song, I liked it, didn’t want it to end, lol. I think if I listened to it a few times I could really end up enjoying it even more. It’s the kind of song that grows on you the more you listen to it. I’ll also try listening to their other songs. Thanks!
And for anyone else who wants to hear it, here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-XbDBA…
It does indeed although im not a fan of the band i love the song ps have you heard lacuna coil its a bit like nightwish
Yes, I’ve heard of Lacuna Coil. They are a good band, but I don’t like all their songs. I think they have 2 that are some of my favorites, though :D
I loved their cover of Enjoy the Silence (one of my favorite songs ever). And, surprising (lol), Heaven’s A Lie.
yeh cool try listening to NYMPHETAMINE BY CRADLE OF FILTH its dark but you may like it. on the nemo level of things
are you down under
Wow…you’re seriously mentioning all of my favorite songs, lol…
No. I’m in the U.S.
cool .. see ya Hope maybe we shall become friends..PS an ancient family crest of mine says:I BREATHE THERFORE I HOPE:
yeah, it would be great to talk to you again :)
and that’s awesome! I’ve heard the quote before, but didn’t know that it was ever on a family crest :D

xeno — why do you argue? yes, the answer is: because you can. (a side note about that would be to encourage all to thank their lucky stars … or God, if that’s what they wish to call it … that we live in a country that permits you to make your statements so freely and openly.)
you don’t like the music. that’s fine. why pick nits? it serves no purpose. it neither teaches anyone else anything nor spreads substantive information. so why do it? (those are figurative questions, not literal ones, so they don’t need to be answered here. frankly, i suspect a lot of us don’t care and would appreciate your not taking up bandwidth replying.)
it is a well worn but accurate truism that perception is reality. you have documented your perceptions and reality about the music sufficiently. now, unless you have an ill-meaning motive for being here, let the rest of us who enjoy much of the music discussed here have a pleasant conversation.
negativity is a painful, heavy burden but one makes a choice to carry it. do you?
It is apparent to me that you don’t have an open mind. You see you may like secular music and think that there are no good Christian songs. But thats where you are wrong.
It is based on your opinion, but hey its what you decide none of us can change your mind.
Christian songs are to worship God, and thats it, sure we may enjoy them, but I believe we have gone astray from the real reason we sing them.
