This list of top Christian alternative rock groups let’s you see who  fans think are the best in Christian alternative. As alternative rock rose to prominence during the late 1980s and 1990s, an offshoot of that with religious overtones began to become popular. Thus alternative Christian music was born. Over the years, Christian alternative rock has grown and Christian alternative rock bands have captured the hearts and minds of fans of Christian music fans. Though Christian alternative rock bands may not get as much press as other genres of Christian music, that doesn't mean they're any less popular or important.
