What’s the Best Christian Alternative Group of All Time?

From the mosh pits of alternative rock to the soothing rhythms of indie melodies, there are countless contenders for Christian music’s best alternative group. Bands known for their thought-provoking lyrics, innovative sounds and unwavering dedication to their faith are all competing for the title — but only one can be crowned as the ultimate winner.

We asked you to figure it out among yourselves, and we have to say, there were a lot of tough contenders out there.

Who do you think got it right?

The Crucified

Could the band that “pioneered Christian hardcore” music be No.1?

Relient K

There’s a strong case for Relient K to be the kings, considering they’re one of the few to still be around.

Five Iron Frenzy

Is it safe to say Five Iron Frenzy put Christian ska music on the map?

Pedro the Lion / mewithoutYou

Pedro the Lion feels too deep cut to be the G.O.A.T., but let’s hear him about about mewithoutYou…

Barlow Girl

Finally, some female representation!

Jars of Clay

Now we’re getting to some serious competition.

The Choir

Honestly, kudos to The Choir for still rocking out.

Sufjan Stevens

This is 100% a stretch, but we will accept this as an answer.


We all knew the answer to this question before we even asked it.
