These days Creed is more of a punchline than a serious band, but there was a time when the Christian backdrop of their lyrics spurred serious discussions amongst rock lovers. “My Own Prison” contains some very blatant nods to lead singer Scott Stapp’s Christian upbringing, including the delightful drop D melodrama of being judged by God in a make believe courtroom. While Creed is still putting out albums with spiritual lyrics, these days they are usually undercut by events like Stapp changes the lyrics to glorify the Florida Marlins. Praise baseball!
