Mark Salomon from The Crucified famously sang “I'm not a Christian punk. That's exactly what I'm running from.” His point was that you can’t mix the Light of Christ with the darkness of worldly matters. We whole heartedly agree. But, as a purely descriptive term for the genre, there is no phrase that better describes the style and the purpose. Saying “a punk band that is made up of Christians for the purpose of Ministry” is a snoozer. So, with all due respect, Christian punk.
