List of Christian hardcore bands

The following is a list of Christian hardcore bands, organized by sub-genre.

Christian hardcore is a sub-genre of hardcore punk primarily distinguished by its lyrical focus on Christian themes and values, although former Burden of a Day guitarist Bryan Honhart has suggested that the genre also possesses sonic distinctions.[1] No Innocent Victim is considered a progenitor of the movement. In recent years, Demon Hunter[2] and The Chariot,[3] among others, have gained considerable popularity among fans of the genre, while metalcore bands such as Underoath, As I Lay Dying, and Norma Jean have served as mainstream representatives of the genre.
