What if I told you there are Christian artists out there that aren’t as soft spoken. Artists that praise God just in a different way, a way that is a little more heavy and head banging it out with a guitar in hand. With that being said there is a stereotype out there that Christians listen to one certain type of music, while this may be true to some who solely listen to that, there are many other genres that are christian and faith based. I, myself , gravitate more toward the heavier stuff, however I do listen to a very diverse area of music. From Alternative to Rock and from Soft Christian to 80’s, 70’s, and 60’s! I grew up with listen to rock like AC-DC, Elvis, Ben King, Guns and Roses, Metallica, Beach Boys and more.
There is no deny that the songs Christians can listen to are often powerful and bring worship. Artists like and songs sung in churches now a days across country
- You Say- Lauren Daigle
- 10000 reasons- Matt Redmen
- Reckless Love- Cory Asbury
- God Only Knows– Kings and Country
- How Great Our God/Good Good Father- Chris Tomlin
- We Believe- Newsboys
The examples above are some of the greatest worship songs that I adore listening to both in church and during bible time. These are great songs to just have on period. However while the list of well known worship songs could go on, there are christian artists that aren’t as soft spoken as these mentioned above. Which is covered in my Top Ten below, the bands that I have picked aren’t even the half of it but the ones I listen to most often. I feel that they keep very well with meaningful and very relatable faith messages.
I know there are many out there that will disagree with me that the only acceptable things that Christians should listen to is the soft stuff. Those out there who don’t appreciate this kind of music. While I can agree with you that there are many metal/rock bands out there that aren’t the best for you. I feel that you should limit how you can praise to just one type of music. I know there are christian rappers that rap about praise, worship, god and faith over drugs, cars, money and sex. Over all its a matter of opinion……
