Switchfoot is a popular rock band that claims to be “Christian by faith, not by genre”.

Frontman Jon Foreman said: "We've always been very open and honest about where the songs are coming from. For us, these songs are for everyone. Calling us 'Christian rock' tends to be a box that closes some people out and excludes them. And that's not what we're trying to do. Music has always opened my mind — and that's what we want."
