Christian Albums That Rock
The Supertones - Adventures Of The O.C. Supertones: This is probably the album that started it all for me. Kickin' horns, thrashing guitar, and plenty of enegery. Even secular ska fans love The Supertones. I remember being up late one night and discovering a Christian music video show that didn't play M.W. Smith. They introduced me to a lot of the bands I now like. So far I have seen them twice. Each time I leave a little bruised, very sweaty and tired, but uplifted by the fun-time music they perform.
The Newsboys - Take Me To Your Leader: Would you believe I hung out at a Christian bookstore watching a live telecast to celebrate the release of this album? Sure they are a tad corny and out of date, but let's face it. They are fun! It is a bit poppy, but the music is easy to dance to and sing along with.
Beanbag - Free Signal: I got a lot of heat from my friends for liking this band when they opened up for Newsboys a few years ago. They were hardcore. I mean real hardcore. The announcer joked how they scared children. I don't care. I loved it. I tried to explain to them how bands like Newsboys and Sonicflood were for people like them. Beanbag were for people like me. Though I think they have long been broken up.
The Blamed - 21: I miss this album. Punk music at its best. Not the poppy crap you heard in the 90's. This was the real deal. Edgy, tough, yet with a message.
That is all I can think of for the time being. If I come up with any more I'll let you know. I just noticed that I think most of these albums aren't available anymre.
