There are lots of people who label their music 'Christian rock', or 'Christian metal', or sometimes just 'Christian'. Apparently, Christians play guitars differently than other people. Or maybe...

    No, it's not a genre. But it's useful to find new bands for people that don't want to listen to, from a Christian perspective, 'bad' music.

    I agree that Christian is not a genre. But I still like when people tag bands as such here on last fm because it helps when I'm trying to find new bands that I might like [a lot of my music is not Christian; but if a band has good music AND Christian themes it's a bonus to me.[3]

I hate it when people are like "Oh this is christian, so I'm not going to listen to it." I'd rather listen to Christian themed songs, and not bands who just have a "Jesus party" with other Christians, but extend their faith out to those who aren't. But at the same time it's nice to know that a certain band is composed of christian members.

    A song automatically loses a star in rating when it mentions Jesus.

    Christian isn't a genre its a theme, but people are allowed to tag music with whatever they like. A good example of a stupid tag is the 'Officially Shit' tag. At least if a band with christian themes is tagged 'Christian' you know what the theme of all their music is going to be.

    If you can't see the difference between Christianity and Jones' cult then you're a very blind person.

    You might as well tag every satanic band with 'Satanic Metal'.

    this group makes me lol. christians choose to alienate themselves, and i think that is a good thing because I dont listen to music to be preached at. therefore, if something is labeled christian, i know to avoid it.

    I dont think it is ever possible to completely separate lyrical content from genre. [2]

    .....maybe it's because it sounds different they label it accordingly?
