I've never heard of the band, until i heard a song from them i liked. I think it was called 'Meant to Live'. (repeated 7 times a day on the radio)

It's on 98.5 or 107.9. Obviously, this channel will not reach where you live, unless you live in Pennsylvania.  ;)

And it's not even a rock station! Sometimes, they even play (mostly rock), and pop, and rap too!

I only know of them because they did a lot of the songs on the "A Walk To Remember" soundtrack, and I like the songs that they did on there.

i dont see how you guys think they're christian rock. for some reasons:

A. i dont see any religious references in their lyrics (although i have not looked into detail, so i may be wrong.)
B. christian rock bands suck. switchfoot does not. if you listen to like real christian rock bands, they suck.

that's pretty much all i have to say. i like "we were meant to live" but i don't think i liked the other single, but i've only heard it once or twice.
three cheers for universal slaughter.

^ yes i do agree with you, i wouldve never have guessed they were a christian rock band, but it turns out they are  :P

so thanks for all your replies, it helped alot =^-^=

but im deciding on which c.d to get, switchfoot or the lost prophets...soo...^^; which one should i get?

(i like both bands, so im just asking everyone which band they think has better music)

Well, let's see.  You're pretty much completely WRONG.  I have listened to every CD they have, and they are a Christian band.  They've crossed over to mainstream currently.

Christian rock bands do not suck (okay, some do, i.e. Stryper).

Meant to Live has Christian lyrics.  They are not overtly Christian which makes them great to a wide audience and they can share their message to a semi-un-Christian audience.

Their best song is Tune for the Paparazzi (sp?).  If you like Switchfoot, try listening to Relient K.

I have never heard a good Christian band.  Not that I have anything against them, they just generally are really really really bad.

Then again, most music is really really really bad.
