That and some Christians think all secular music is satanic.

I know Christians who listen to 50 Cent and then tell me that anything with harsh vocals is satanic.

Lozzles. Hard-Fi are MAJOR LABEL in every sense of the word. A fat fockin' contract with Warner Bros themselves.

Arctic Monkeys, however, are as it happens an indie band. Zero, why the hell would you think otherwise???

I believe they're both indie labels with major label distribution.

Although I could be wrong

Meh, I'm Christian, but the only Christian bands I really listen to are Underoath, MxPx, and Slick Shoes, who don't really use that many Christian themes (except for maybe Underoath). Some Christian music is pretty awful though (DC Talk anyone?).

Well I am a Christian and the only good bands that I like that actually claim to be Christian are Trouble, Thrice, Alethenian, and Callisto. Cult of Luna's music has Christian messages, I feel, but they haven't really talked about their religion.

Honestly, I just feel that some secular bands spell out the true Christian message better than the Christian bands, and they aren't even trying to. Though technically everyone is up to their own interpretation, so I shouldn't be saying "true," but I find more of a Christ-attitude in bands like Cult of Luna then I do in Hawk Nelson or whoever the next big Christian band is these days.

Magnus has referred to himself as an "anarcho-spiritualist" if that means anything.

Hmm. Would that make him more of a unitarian or just an atheist? Either way, the fact is that I see more Christian themes in them then I see in any of these other popular Christian bands.

@Rainard. I'm not arguing about the fans. Just Prog's definition.

It might apply to dream theater fanbois or some progressive metal fans, but generally, ppl who listen to say- pink floyd, genesis, gentle giant etcetc. listen to other stuff as well.(or at least the one's i know do!)
We're not talking about casual Prog listeners who throw PF on occasionally.
