The Best Christian Punk Bands

Get ready to praise and rock at the same time! Here's our ranked list of the best Christian punk bands of all time, as voted on by punk rockers like you. For outsiders, hearing about Christian punk bands can sound a bit strange. However, Christian punk is easily one of the fastest growing subgenres in both Christian music and punk rock. So, what are the top Christian punk bands? Any Christian punk band list has to include the likes of Reliant K, MxPx, Flatfoot 56, and FM Static, but there are also many other top artists from the Christian punk scene, both newer and old school (before the 2000s), including emo and hard core Christian punk rockers.

Taking the musical elements of traditional punk rock along with the spiritual nature of Christian music, the greatest Christian punk bands have some of the most loyal fans: even if Christian punk subjects itself to criticism from both Christians and from secular fans for not adhering to their preconceived notions of what good Christian punk should be. No matter what, these bands (which generally emerged in the mid-1980s and early 90s with their decidedly punk rock attitude of not caring what outsiders think) are amongst the best Christian punk rock bands ever, and even some of the best punk rock bands too.

That said, it's up to you to determine what are the best Christian punk bands. It's no surprise that Christian punk has become popular over the years, but if you're an expert on this music, then chime in with your vote.
