The only significant difference between alternative Christian music and secular alternative music is the former's lyrics of religious inspiration and devotion. Many alternative Christian groups like Jars of Clay and Sixpence None the Richer have enjoyed considerable crossover success without alienating their religious fans. From the hard rock sounds of King's X to the pop-punk of MxPx to the aggressive post-grunge of Sonicflood, alternative Christian offers a more energetic and tougher sound than traditional Christian pop music. Other artists featured here include Audio Adrenaline, Delirious and Newsboys.
