I'm currently listening to Army of Hardcore by Neophyte. I'm surprised I'm listening to Dutch gabber music but just for a change of pace.

Good new band. And Christian. ;-D


Is that just trivia or does it matter that your musicians are Christian?
Just curious.

I've been rocking a lot of older punk lately, Agent Orange, Dead Kennedys, Fugazi.

Old age has softened me I think. ;-D

Would it matter if I liked Nickelback and mentioned that they were Canadian? The band and their message is Christian. I like that. One of the reasons I like this band.

Oh, but Nickelback sucks. Really. :-P

Nickelback is the worst thing to come out of Canada since Martin Short. I'd rather listen to Anne Murray.

As for Red - I checked out Breathe Into Me. How do you know that their message is Christian? I couldn't understand a word the guy said. 8-o Nice enough sound I guess but he could have been saying Rock Me Asmodeus for all I knew :-S

I've got nothing against Christian Rock it's just that I've never understood it. Sex, drugs and .... um salvation? They don't seem genuine to me. They come off as more of a marketing idea than anything else. Remember Stryper? "Salvation Through Redemption, Yielding Peace, Encouragement, and Righteousness." That is the definition of a marketing idea that reached too far. no offence to any Stryper fans out there.

I'm not overly familiar with Red, but they have a review here, a Christian website. I have a problem with music that doesn't say anything and a band with a message regarding my faith is generally going to get a thumbs up from me, especially if they sound pretty good. I remember the band name Stryper, but don't recall anything they did. I can't say I really listened to "Christian Rock" persay. I suppose you could lump them all under that label, but I believe there may be a stereotype that may not apply to all bands with a Christian message. There was a thread a while ago, here, regarding Christian music. A lot more fans than you might think. Flyleaf is another fairly new band with a Christian message that's a good listen on occasion. And for the record, I can't stand Creed and POD. ;-)
