When people ask you to list surprising Christians, U2 are always somewhere near the top of the list. While many of the records flirt with political ideas of war and the world, they also look to God and the Bible for salvation.
The gentlemen responsible for "Sex on Fire," have a purer passion: God!
The Tennessee group work in ideas of salvation into their music. It's more than a metaphor, people!
If you grew up Christian and pop-punk, Relient K were your Blink-182. The squeaky clean boys of this godly group veered away from church-themed content, but when asked in interviews, they're super open about their main man JC. Christ, that is.
This is about as exciting and unexpected as the moment most of us learned this Americana- and folk-obsessed group was British! Mumford & Sons are definitely Christian—frontman Marcus Mumford's folks are members of the evangelical Vineyard Church in England as is young Mumfie.
Attention indie rock nerds! Your beloved pop icons, Belle & Sebastian, are Christian! Frontman Stuart Murdoch & Co. have been pretty vocal about their Jesus love.
Don't believe us? Peep the lyrics to "The Ghost of Rockschool": "I've seen God in the sun / I've seen God in the street / God before bed and the promise of sleep / God in my dreams / And the free ride of grace / I've seen God shining / Out from her reflection."
This indie darling is also a devout Christian. The hunky singer-songwriter is similar to Kings of Leon in that he works ideas of the Lord into his epic tunes. Check out "Ah Holy Jesus" above.
Recently reunited emo legends Thrice are low-key Christians! Frontman Dustin Kensrue has been involved in the community for years now.
