There are many many bands out there that not only have the aggressive sound like POD but also have very thought provoking lyrics that glorify God....and not junior high-ish. I'd be more than willing to suggest some.Lakesider said:I'd love to see more bands like POD that have today's aggressive sound.
But a lot of the current Christian rock/worship bands have lyrics little more challenging and thought-provoking spiritually than the songs we learned in Sunday School as a kid.
If you think of Rush or Yes being 'cerebral bands' that make you think a little or paint vivid, artsy thoughts with their lyrics but with pinpoint musicianship of the prog genre, would be neat to see a Christian band do songs about the finer points of our faith or describing some of the famous events of the Bible or whatever. Third Day has a great southern rock sound and an awesome guitarist but the lyrics are sorta junior-high level in their words and lyrics. Does that make any sense?
Yes, but Vincent Furnier, the man who uses the stage name Alice Cooper, is a born-again Christian. Has been for several years now. Which is why he now tries to perform with bands like POD instead of the ones he used tour with.Scofield said:I'm all eyes...DkC said:
Isn't Alice Cooper the name of a witch?
A couple of hymns were once bar tunes, as you probably know.I personally don't like it, however, when a Christian group takes a secular song and changes the words - I think it is rather dumb myself.
