The Best Christian Hardcore Bands

Unlike other hardcore bands, Christian hardcore bands focus on the spreading the message of - you guessed it - Christianity through hardcore punk. Christian hardcore has grown in popularity since it first emerged in the late 1980s and 1990s. The beauty of the Christian hardcore movement is that the message - while focused on religion - also focuses on an uplifting lyrical matter, and use Christian imagery as well. These bands have rabid fanbases who aren't afraid to go nuts at their live shows, just like at non-religious hardcore punk shows. Unlike other Christian rock bands, Christian hardcore bands don't wear their religion on their sleeve since they don't want to abandon fans primarily due to their religious beliefs.

So, what are the best Christian hardcore bands. A subgenre of Christian punk, the best Christian hardcore bands may not be household names, but the power of their songs speaks to many in the hardcore community. That's why you'll see the likes of Underoath, The Devil Wears Prada, Extol, Zao, As I Lay Dying and Dead Poetic on the list of Christian hardcore bands. 

That said, it's up to you to determine what are the best Christian hardcore bands. If you notice a band isn't on this list and should be, feel free to add them. This list answers the questions "who are the best Christian hardcore bands of all time?" and "who is the greatest Christian hardcore musician ever?" If you know enough about the genre, please vote based on the quality of the band's music instead of just voting for the most popular christian hardcore bands that you might've heard of.
