My friends and I have been having fun lately emailing a list back and forth of what are the best of the worst Christian songs we grew up listening to. You know, those songs that are enjoyable, with lyrics you can’t get out of your head, but at the same time you’d be slightly embarrassed if anyone came across them on your iPod.
So I condensed our lists and decided to share the final version of our list of songs we hate to love. It’s not meant to be a mean-spirited list, just a fun way to look back at how much Christian music has–thankfully–changed.
I remember hearing “Big House” by Audio Adrenaline ad nauseam when I was a freshman in college and rolling my eyes every time someone tried to jazz up the song by replacing the “Where we can play football” line with “Where we can play frisbee” or something else that was more gender neutral.
