Christian alternative music is a form of alternative rock music lyrically grounded in a Christian worldview. The degree to which the faith appears in the music varies from artist to artist.


Christian alternative rock has its roots in the early 1980s, as the earliest efforts at Christian punk and new wave music were recorded by artists like Daniel Amos, Andy McCarroll and Moral Support, Undercover, The 77s, Adam Again, Quickflight, Youth Choir (later renamed The Choir), Lifesavers Underground, The Altar Boys, Steve Taylor, David Edwards, and Vector. By the 1990s, many of these bands were being carried by independent labels, such as the growing Tooth & Nail Records, because their music tended to be more lyrically complex (and often more controversial) than mainstream Contemporary Christian Music.
