#200 Ovation guitars

posted by Stephanie Drury

The worship leader wants to strum. To do this he needs an acoustic guitar, but they’re hard to mic without getting a lot of god-awful feedback.

#87 Getting rid of their secular music

posted by Stephanie Drury

There comes a time in every young evangelical’s life when he must roll up his sleeves, raise the black flag, and commence destroying his secular music.

#136 Pogo dancing

posted by Stephanie Drury

People become tired of getting bruised in mosh pit, thus reversion to a newer gentler pogo, which is now suitable for CCM.

#98 “People Need The Lord”

posted by Stephanie Drury

If you went to church during the ’80s then you’ve probably heard this tender treat. This is often sung by the congregation during the altar call. The rest of the time it’s performed as a solo by your friend’s mom […]

#96 Playing Guitar Praise in lieu of Guitar Hero

posted by Stephanie Drury

Christian culture’s idea of “rockin'” is as questionable as their definition of the word “best.” Rather than violate your soul with secular music, violate your senses with this! Is God glorified by the Christian-ifying of video games? Christian culture seems to think so.

#81 Bono

posted by Stephanie Drury

Men in Christian culture often have giant man-crushes on Bono. Pastors who wish to be emergent/relevant sometimes quote him in sermons and work in a U2 lyric mention when they can.

#57 Singing “I Will Be Here” at weddings

posted by Stephanie Drury

If you have been involved in Christian culture for any amount of time, there is a very good chance you have been to a wedding where Steven Curtis Chapman’s “I Will Be Here” was sung.

#26 Innocuous Music

posted by Stephanie Drury

Christians also enjoy country music, especially “new” country, and they all like Johnny Cash since he was a Christian, however gritty. They don’t like rap. Same goes for R&B and hip hop.

#20 The Djembe

posted by Stephanie Drury

Christians took to this drum as starved dogs to a meat wagon. With this, set-up volunteers who do not have a musical bone in their body are given a chance to contribute to the band because, come on, how hard can it be to hit a drum?

#14 Worship Teams

posted by Stephanie Drury

A worship team leads the congregation in singing worship songs while standing on a stage that has carpeted steps. They never sing traditional hymns, only songs that have been introduced into Christian culture in the last twenty or thirty years. These songs are considered by the worship team to be inspiring and appealing to Young People. The lyrics are always projected onto a big screen via projector, often in Papyrus font.

#3 Coldplay

posted by Stephanie Drury

For the record I don’t think Coldplay is outright shitty, I just think it is sort of uninspired yet highly listen-able. A bit like Christian culture.
