[quote][i]Originally posted by TownOfDalem[/i] Eve 6 is awesome. I could listen to their first two albums at anytime and enjoy it. Inside Out is also a really fun song to karaoke. As the rest of this post proves I also clearly enjoy bands that never really made it. 2Hot, I'm curious as to if it was the Emo or the Christian part that scares you off. When I was younger I had a fairly active dislike for anything that couldn't fall under Rock music but as years have gone on I've come to realize there are no bad genres only bad bands. While rock will always be my favorite genre I've come to appreciate that there is some good Rap and Country and Hip Hop and Pop and all these other genres I used to hate. Despite only having been in a church about 4 times in the last decade I have found myself listening to a lot of bands with mostly Christian members. In that theme and for no particular reason I present my top 5 "Christian" rock bands. For most of these bands you could listen to them and not even realize they are Christian but I'll throw in a song by them that does demonstrate the band's faith. 1. Emery. They just might be my favorite band of all time. I fell in love with them 3 seconds into the first song of their debut album The Weak's End. The scream of "Are You Listening?" certainly got my attention and that albums blend of 3 vocalists ranging from guttural screaming to haunting beauty across complex songs filled with tempo and time signature changes remains awe inspiring to listen to. A change to a more traditional verse-chorus style in The Question showed a new sign that still captured my attention. The more pop based sound of their third album I'm Only a Man, showed Emery wasn't going to be satisfied with one type of sound. Finally their fourth album ...In Shallow Seas We Sail seems like it could be the pinnacle of their work as it combines the pop and verse-chorus of recent albums with the raw energy of their debut to form what I consider to be the most intense record I have ever heard. Also, the song that most shows their Christian roots would have to be [url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F61B_O3R9SE]Listening To Freddy Mercury[/url] off of The Question. ”Here is my hand, not words said desperately. It's not our job to make anyone believe” 2. Anberlin. I’ve seen Anberlin in concert more times then any other band at a total of 6 times. After 3 albums they were signed by Universal and have become decently successful. For their first major label album they re-recorded [url= http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R4sqFmSqrSc] Feel Good Drag[/url]from their 2nd album. [url= http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R4sqFmSqrSc] Feel Good Drag)[/url]eventually became the Billboard’s #1 alternative rock song and actually set a record by taking 29 weeks to reach #1 after first entering the chart. I find it rather ironic that the song eventually reached #1 since it was originally released 4 years prior. [url= http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R4sqFmSqrSc] Feel Good Drag[/url]was also just released as DLC for Rock Band. The song that show off their Christian roots would be [url= http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=izbvBeQiw6Q] Miserabile Visu (Ex Malo Bonum)[/url]. ”We're not questioning God Just those he chose to carry on His cross We're no better, you'll see Just all of us, the lost causes” 3. Letter Kills. The second concert I ever went to actually had Letter Kills and Anberlin opening for Story of the Year. It was a great show that had the lead singer performing the most impressive mic whips I have ever seen. Unfortunately, Letter Kills broke up while recording their 2nd album. Best thing I can say about them is their guitarist could write some catchy guitar riffs. I challenge anyone to not get the guitar on [url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7-EkESreZ8Y]Whatever It Takes[/url] stuck in their head. The bands name apparently comes from Second Corinthians so that pretty much covers it but go with [url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AHAPQ8ts6z4]Lights Out[/url] to hear their Christian influence in a song. ”As long as we can sing we’ll sing for you” 4. Dead Poetic. Another great rock band who broke up. In this case the lead singer got married and wanted to start a family instead of nonstop touring. While I miss the band I respect and admire that. Their song The Corporate Enthusiast became my anthem when I soled out and ended up in business school. The song [url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=otcpzJY_-ZA]New Medicines[/url] was actually in the Wrestlemania 21 game for Xbox. [url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f4RFqbFtPvs]Cannibal vs Cunning[/url] is an all-time great rock song. Song that most clearly shows their Christian roots would have to be [url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HSDIN0jaTuM]Vices[/url]. ”Oh, but Jesus. I’ve got Vices like any other man. Vices that you’re so used to. Vices that won’t make you think less of me” 5. April Sixth. I think I pretty much covered them already. I would say of these 5 bands this is the only one where you would definitely realize they are Christians. For the other bands it is one of many influences but for April Sixth it is the influence. Lets go with [url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QFgROY8FqnU]You Come Around[/url] for clear Christian influence. ”Love me, guide me, teach me your way. To feel the compassion you give every day. I know if I try it, just for a while, Well I just might like it and come for more” Wow I think I may have put way to much effort into something only like three people might read. At least I've finally mastered putting links into text by linking to about 10 you tube videos for the songs I reference. [/quote]
