Christian rock is a type of rock music that is performed by Christians. It often has lyrics and themes dealing with Christianity.

Christian rock started as "Jesus music" and piano in church but has become a form of modern music that has become more popular. Some Christian rock bands such as Switchfoot and P.O.D. have become popular even with fans who are not Christians. Some Christians do not like the idea of this type of music and think rock in any form is a work of the Devil.

Other bands in this genre include Skillet, Fireflight and Red. There are many more.
