Music like rock, but centers on praising jesus or god or whoever the hell compels people to write songsof this nature. Starting out like a Bon Jovi ballad, songs from this genre usually tricks listeners into thinking it is regular rock, but halfway through the song the band breaks into prayer. Most listeners feel betrayed by this sudden change in lyrics and change to a different song of a different genre. The rest saw it coming and enjoy listening to it for some reason. If this depicts you, you are either an old person, or are to sheltered to know what good music sounds like.
what a christian rock song may sound like...

"I woke up in the morning
and I got myself some oatmeal
and I put some raisins on it

1. an oxymoron
2. a diversion genre of music to distract young, restless, and confused Christians from their real religion.

Christian Rock is just as good except without the pointless lyrics

It crushes the skull of satan, and puts satanic music to shame. This is real rock. Some people think it is "pansy music" because of bands like Pillar.
Christian Rock is Living Sacrifice, Zao, Norma Jean, Demon Hunter, Immortal Souls, Crimson Thorn, Becoming The Archetype, Impending Doom, Tortured Conscience, The Chariot, Haste The Day, Vomitorial Corpulence, BURN THE FLESH

A genre of music that is obviously labeled by uninformed people as being listened to only by "pansies." And it's no wonder why you think that if all you've ever heard of it is P.O.D., Kutless, Skillet, 12 Stones, Thousand Foot Krutch, Jeremy Camp and the like! Those bands are nothing but posers and wanna-bes! If you want to hear some REAL Christian rock, look up Underoath, Haste the Day, Norma Jean, Relient K, Switchfoot, Blindside, Dead Poetic, Zao and I could name many more. I'll admitt most Christian artists have done a lot in the way of giving Christian rock a bad name, but don't go labeling it all as a whole until you've actually heard all the genre has to offer!
It's sad that poser bands like Pillar and Thousand Foot Krutch have totally messed up Christian rock's image.

Not for Pansies.
Bad Christian Rock;
P.O.D., Kutless, Skillet, 12 Stones, Thousand Foot Krutch, Jeremy Camp. They're posers.
Awesome Christian Rock= Underoath, Haste the Day, Norma Jean, Relient K, Switchfoot, Blindside, Dead Poetic, Zao, and such.
Most christian artists have given christian rock a bad name, but give it a chance, losers.
