Just found about the first mainstream Christian metal band Stryper. In the midst of the 80’s, when sex, drugs, and rock n roll was the big deal a band changed their name and music to reflect their love of Jesus.
Not only did they achieve popularity, they actually broke into the mainstream. They were the very first overtly Christian metal band, and I think Christian bands today could learn a few things. Don’t hide Jesus’ name behind your lyrics to get popularity, walk in faith and proclaim Him and God will bless you with all the fame and prosperity you need.
New favorite band, God bless you Stryper, you are heroes of the faith!!!
