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.

a band that saved me from totally disbelieving in music.
If it weren't for Switchfoot's music, I would be posting negative stuff about other bands by now.

1) An incredibly amazing band.

2) One of the only Christian rock bands today that actually has talent and plays real music (besides Relient K).
I love Switchfoot. People who sit at their computers thinking of negative things to put about Switchfoot on here have wayyy too much time on their hands. It's pretty sad. And Switchfoot loves you.
