Rock That Doesn't Roll: The Story of Christian Music

Andrew Gill and Leah Payne
MusicMusic History

Christian rock has long been the target of jokes, but the effect it had on evangelical kids in the 80s, 90s and early 2000s is worth serious consideration. We’re looking at personal stories from people who grew up listening to CCM. Expect hilarious moments and heartfelt yearning in equal measure. If you’ve had any experience with Christian music, we hope your own story makes more sense to you after listening. If you’ve never given Christian music any thought beyond a punchline, we hope you’ll gain a deeper understanding of a subculture that’s shaping the world around us now.

  • Great podcast

    Growing up in an Evangelical household, I find myself relating to so many of these stories. The production and storytelling are top notch, and the guests are insightful and honest about their experiences living in the Christian music bubble. And where else can you find a podcast that features Michael English and Scaterd Few in the same episode?

  • My life in a podcast

    Growing up in a Midwest youth group, listening to everything from Twila Paris to Barren Cross, then becoming a youth pastor on the West Coast, booking bands for our youth rallies, such as Common Children, Altar Boys, and Liaison. This is my life in a podcast!

  • This is my life age 17-21

    I can’t believe I found a podcast that pretty much described my life from age 17-21. This is especially true of episode two. This podcast is wonderfully nostalgic and put words to my reflections of my late teens and early 20s. I can’t wait to hear more.
