Christian rock is a form of rock music played by bands where the
musicians are openly Christian. The extent that their lyrics are explicitly
Christian varies between bands.
Larry Norman was a Christian rock musician popular in the 1970s who
challenged a view held by some conservative Christians (predominantly
fundamentalists) that rock music was anti-Christian, with his song "Why
should the Devil have all the good music". Such attitudes towards
popular music have been found in many periods of history.
