Is a group called the Goads, they are awesome, and their testimony is incredible. A family of kids (who are grown now) but lost both their parents at an early age and stuck together to bring forth an incredible Christian Ministry.
My all-time favorite band is the Minutemen and my favorite album is Double Nickels on the Dime (the vinyl version, of course). Some of my other favorite musical artists include Bob Dylan, the Who, Husker Du, CCR, the Slackers, John Coltrane, the Specials, Television, the Skatalites, the Clash, the Pietasters, and Devo.
jars of clay
dcTalk (old stuff)
12 stones (kind of)
other non-christian bands include jimmy eat world, wilco, death cab for cutie, and modest mouse....when it's not christian i try to avoid any profanity......swearing and junk.......(hense jimmy eat world, since they never cuss on their cd's)
I like a lot of secular music as well as Christian music but I'll only post muh Christian favorites here. There's a lot of artists I like so I won't be able to name them all. So here are my most favorite:
Michael W. Smith
Steven Curtis Chapman
Amy Grant (not sure these days... her older songs were great!)
Point of Grace
Sheesh, I know there's a lot more but my mind is really just blank right now. ... I'm also kinda tired right now as well. Maybe I'll come back and edit this post another time.
Does NO ONE like Casting Crowns? I haven't saw a thread for them on a Christian forum in ages! ugh. I'm saddened..
Obviously I like Casting Crowns.. They are Very forceful in their songs and give very clear, God centered messages.
I also like Superchic[k].. They also do similar things.. Although they focus on more of life improvement than God centered messages. I esp. like the song "Stand in the Rain" by them.. Very good.. very, very good..
I like Casting crowns...anyway my faves are Fred Hammond, Jeremy Camp, Lecrae, Chris Tomlin, building429, Warren Barfield, Anberlin(don't thinktheir music is really christian anymore).........I don't know I like so many different kinds of groups and singers.
I don't know why it was written. I really like it but it is sad. Have you seen the music video? It is so powerfull! I think missionaries are so inspiring, how they are so fearless and have complete confidence in God.
My favorte are thousand foot krutch,thirdday, Anberlin, toby mac i got to meet him. Releint k, Mxpx,Switchfoot,Johan 33 they rock and I just brought fire flight cd. itsreally good. my all time favorite is dc talk.
