List of Christian Rock Bands

In the 1980s Christian rock started to become a staple in the music industry,[] fueled by bands such as Stryper. Billboard magazine started to post the top 10 Christian rock songs, and some radio stations[which?] started to play Christian rock. Bands such as DC Talk, Newsboys, Jars of Clay, Audio Adrenaline and many others achieved commercial success. This list excludes bands that are primarily heavy metal or hardcore punk; those bands appear in the list of Christian metal artists and list of Christian hardcore bands, respectively.

The Encyclopedia of Contemporary Christian Music defines contemporary Christian music (CCM) as "music that appeals to self-identified fans of contemporary Christian music on account of a perceived connection to what they regard as Christianity".[1] Based on that definition, this list includes artists and bands who work in the Christian music industry as well as artists in the general market whose lyrics reflect their Christian faith or where either the artists themselves or outside sources identify members as performing Christian music. (Some artists resist the "Christian rock" label, but nonetheless are still identified under the label by outside sources.)

What I propose is that we define contemporary Christian music exactly the same way we define all other genres. Such labels are always audience-driven and are based unapologetically on perception, not content or intent. If I were writing a book on punk rock, I would find out what people who call themselves fans of punk rock like to listen to.
