1. Bland and generic music that seems to have a formal/harmonic/rhythmic template which all music wanting to be classified in the genre must use.
If you are synesthetic and christian rock is played, you will probably touch/taste/see/smell ass

A genre fueled by various degrees of rock music-loving Christians. Often criticized for bland or mushy lyrics, mostly on the grounds that profanity is not present. It is found in one of the most misunderstood CD aisles at your local Wal-mart. The critics usually have no idea what they are talking about, since the only music that they've heard is the kind played on the "Contemporary Christian" radio station. The real rock music is never played on the Contemporary Christian stations, hence its followers are either broke from buying CDs or are sadly breaking the commandment "Thou shall not steal."

Topics addressed in Christian Rock include all those found in regular rock music, but with a biblical twist. Many songs cannot be identified as part of Christian music, except for the challenge that they propose to society.
Person 1: I love Christian Rock, especially Switchfoot!
Person 2: Switchfoot is Christian Rock? I didn't know that. Well, I'm never listening to them again. I'll stick to polluting my mind with worldly ideals, thank you very much.

A cheap form of music where people try their hardest to sound like the rock band Creed using lyrics that reference the Christian religion and fail epically!
Dude: I like Creed.

Fag: Aren't they christian rock.

Dude: Go to hell!

Although some believe otherwise, rock is a sound and not a lyrical theme. Therefore, Christian rock is made possible. Most good Christian rock addresses real issues like suicide, partying, backstabbing "friends," death, broken families, sex, murder, etc.--but all from a Christian view. It doesn't ignore the world and the themes of secular rock. It just has them with a twist that often points the listener to Jesus. Some say that only secular rock is "real". I say secular rock goes around in circles, while Christian rock points you in the right direction. Do you want to go around in circles, or would you prefer to find meaning in life and accomplish something?
Some Christian rock sounds as good as secular rock or better. And if you think the words "Christian" and "rock" don't belong together, how about the words "Christian punk"?

The people above me obviously have assumed that because this type of music is Christian, it's stupid and for "pansies". They couldn't be more deaf. If they had ever heard P.O.D,Kutless, Skillet, Twelve Stones (did duet w/ Evenescence for Daredevil and went on tour w/ them), Thousand Foot Crutch, or even Jeremy Camp which is softer rock, they would know they were completely wrong. Just because Christian Rock isn't full of hate and slander, doesn't mean it's lower quality or even that it delivers a straight message of "don't fight back" either. Some of this music's lyrics is just as full of angst that fills secular rock. Only the angst is delivered against those who blindly attack Christians, and cries in compassion for their loss. The rest of the music justly praises our awesome God, and deals with the struggles of being a Christian...because being a Christian doesn't take a pansy.
Look up the mentioned bands and see for yourself before you label blindly.
