Have you tried Maylene and the Sons of Disaster?I like pretty much everything from heavy metal to country to most everything in between. The only thing I don't like it that ghetto-rap that doesn't even have singing or instruments. That said, my all time favorite genre is, Southern Rock (Skynyrd, Allman Brothers, Outlaws, Blackfoot, Marshall Tucker Band, Credence Clearwater Revival, etc.). They were all before my time but I've still seen a few of them play (or what's left of them). And as I type this, Christian Contemporary is on Pandora.
I don't like mixing my Christianity with my music. Music is a major part of my life and usually I find when it is mixed with things like religion or politics, both things end up being diluted or compromised. But I don't see this as a problem because a purely instrumental piece of music can bring out strong emotions and often those of a spiritual nature.
You guys should listen to Hillsong/Hillsong United! Amazing Christian band.
Listen to "From the Inside Out", "Mighty to Save", and maybe even "Came to My Rescue". Oh my, they have so many good songs. "Hallelujah" is a good one, too. And don't forget "Salvation is Here"!
Eh. I've just come to really enjoy worship music because I can listen to it and think about Jesus.The thing with Hillsong isn't that they're bad. They're descent. But they just seem like a parody of Arcade Fire or something along those lines. I don't blame anyone for liking them (or anything for that matter), but I can't get into it.

I mean what are you thinking about when listening to other bands, like Smashing Pumpkins? Just curious.
I used to listen to Tool and feel super spiritual/cool and such, but I gave all that up.
