Religion is a deeply personal thing, which is why it can be a shock to learn just how religious a celebrity is. Perhaps the most shocking, though, is finding out that your favorite rockstar is a lot more religious than you would've ever imagined. There are a lot of devoutly religious musicians, and they include some of rock's darkest and most intense personas. You'd be stunned to learn just how important the Christian faith is to someone like Alice Cooper, or how much Gene Simmons feels connected to his Jewish heritage. Some of the heaviest rockers in history are also musicians devoted to religion, and there are even some surprising religious bands out there who have managed to cross over and have hits on the mainstream charts.
From the best singers in rock music to outlandish artists you know and love, let's take a look at some of the most surprisingly religious musicians of all time.
