God's my King of Rock 'n' roll, 47 songs

See below, 47 contemporary Christian rock or pop songs. 

You can also go to Pandora and choose "Christian rock" or "Contemporary Christian" or even a particular artist.

I'm a sucker for Christian rock music. I have to admit it. I've always loved rock, ever since I can remember, better than any other type of music. Some people prefer hymns or gospel, and I like them too. But give me a solid beat, drums, guitar, keyboard, a rising crescendo. Rock sings to my soul; rock I feel deep inside, like a conduit to my heart; rock is my Joyful Noise.

The music is in no way a substitute for prayer, church or the Word of God, of course, but it sure helps me remember in a tangible way who I am and who I want to be. It lifts my spirit, helps me focus my day, gives me motivation and peace, helps me feel connected. Maybe music in general just does that for me and that combined with the messages within those songs is just fantastic.

And it's music that's about something, something that means a lot to me. 

The church I went to in Florida had an awesome Christian rock band. Some of the members have formed this band, Life After Eden. My church now has fantastic singers and they mix in various instruments and we all sing hymns. I love that too. But I also now listen a lot to K-love. I know not everyone agrees with Christian rock, but it sure speaks to me. And so many touch on things I struggle with daily. They make me want to close my eyes, raise my hands and praise God.

Some of the songs below are not necessarily rock (some are pop, I guess), but they are at the least contemporary Christian. And this is from a girl who refused to listen to "God music channels" prior to age 38 :O)
