Re: What's up with all this Christian Rap hype?

That reminds me, Kanye West's recent conversion to Christianity and his new album may help Christian raps popularity, you never know It will definitely get more exposure, but I'm not sure if it will be helpful, or just reinforce to many people that CCM is something to be ridiculed. Maybe some peopl...

Re: What's up with all this Christian Rap hype?

Well they say it's the most popular genre right now. Rock kinda started dying out in the late 80's, although it kept going in different forms for a long time, like grunge, alt, punk revival. But the last decade has seen almost no rock on the charts unfortunately. At least rock still has a large fan...

Re: Favorite singer poll

First album. You'll understand the wink when you hear him. God bless him. First two albums, actually. Greg Hough was the other primary vocalist, and he sounds a lot like John Fogerty. The third album was a tag team of Greg Volz and Rob Fraizer. Next four albums it was Greg Volz, and then John Schli...
