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.

best band ever, most popular for album the beautiful letdown. and the song meant to live and dare you to move, gone was popular on christian stations, as mtl and dytm dominated the mainstream. they are sexy fellows on a mission to make u jam/ rock out.

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.
