An alternative rock band from San Diego, California. The name comes from a surfing term meaning to switch the position of your feet on the board. This also alludes to taking on a different perspective on life. Contrary to popular belief, they are not a Christian band; although the members individually are Christians. Songs are usually written in Socratic dialogue containing socially aware lyricism. Many consider them a sell-out, poser, one-hit-wonder band, while in fact their music hasn't strayed at all from their roots.
I find it interesting that pro-Switchfoot comments here are positive and polite, (with the exeption of one, I think, sarcastic comment) while anti-Switchfoot comments are extremely derogatory and misinformed in nature. I think this says alot about the band itself.
