Ok, The rules and set up are simple. We are making a chart to compare secular bands to a Christian counterpart. We are looking for the most accurate style comparisons between artists, not just one rap group with another, or one rock group with another, but very similar styles and music. When ever you post any suggestions, include which genre they are in, i might not recognize every band or artist, so its helpful for placing them. also if at all possible, give me a link to the thread they are posted in so that people can go straight to the bands thread and not have to search all over. If you find a comparison you don't believe is a good one, please let me know, and explain why using examples whenever possible.

The Format Is Also Simple:
Secular Band - Christian Band

ok guys its back up, its not where we left it at, its about 3/4th's or more


major change ... we can use links from now on, however all of the old links will NOT work, as such they will all be removed, and i will be directing all people to the illustrious Orng tracker

in the future, i will still add post links to bands i think but i will probably keep it to "discography" posts etc. unless i can find a way (with umd's help) to make a link that will "auto search" that name of the band that the link is for in Orng.

yeah we had that 38th paralell and linkin comparison before i will get that back up

and about the f.o.b. that whole line was fix last time around you gotta remember i didnt save the most updated version of the list before it died, and so i am working on gettting things fixed

what we did was we took 2 of the secular artists and 2 of the christian artists and made that a comparison, and put the others in a second line of comparison ... billybo do you remember how we did that? which ones?

and to dreamwish yes orng is everything now, it saves us all time

these comparisons aren't that great, to tell the truth.  like the hawthorne heights, mewithoutYou comparison.  sorry, but it looks like it could use some editing.

oh, and the Fray is Christian, they just don't sing "Christian" songs.

    • It's myspace.
I'm not too sure about providing a Alternative to Blink 182; They really had a style all their own, and Relient K (Let alone any band) doesnt really match that style of theirs. Just a thought.
I live the Gig Life.

March 5th - Project 86 w/ Flatfoot 56, Wavorly
March 12th - New Found Glory w/ Saves The Day, Hellogoodbye and Fireworks
March 27th - Every Time I Die w/ Four Year Strong, Polar Bear Club and Trapped Under Ice
April 3rd - Jonny Craig w/ Eye Alaska, MODSUN
April 27th - A Day To Remember w/ August Burns Red, Silverstein, Enter Shikari
