If you haven’t heard of these guys, you are seriously missing out on some great music. I am not sure who to compare Switchfoot to because they have a sounds that I think is very unique. While their songs are never explicitly Christian their music is very inspirational.
Switchfoot has admittedly been hesitant to be labeled a Christian rock band as they feel that limits their audience. I think that has allowed them to make music that is outside the “Christian music” box. Which is probably why they sound so cool. I had such a hard time trying to figure out which song to put on this post, but I landed on “Meant to Live” since it was the first song I ever heard by them. I would love to hear what songs you love if you are a fan. If you aren’t one yet, please check them out further. I think you will be hooked.
