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 could 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. These are names that everyone in the Christian punk scene will know, but there are plenty of other great Christian punk rockers on this poll as well. 

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 Christian punk should be. No matter what, these bands, which generally emerged in the mid-1980s and with their decidedly punk rock attitude of not caring what outsiders think, are among the best punk rock bands.
