Bad Religion, Bad Rock & Roll.

Because it expresses everything I have to say on the subject, I cut and paste an entire post from Alan Jacobs over on the American Scene:

“There has been enormous growth in the evangelical Protestant movement in America over the last 25 years, and bands in large, modern, nondenominational churches — some would say megachurches — like this one, 90 miles northeast of Los Angeles, now provide one of the major ways that Americans hear live music.” From the NYT.

Hank Hill’s line is still definitive: “You’re not making Christianity better, you’re making rock and roll worse!”

Having attended some of those giant churches I can tell you that a lot of the music is excerable.
