Is Three Days Grace a Christian band?
Many people assume because of the name of the band that they may be a Christian band. This is not the case as the lead singer Adam Gontier explains in an interview.
"The name came from when we had day jobs. Brad (the band's bassist) was going to be an accountant, and he'd heard the term "three days grace period" to pay off a debt or something like that. He brought it to us and it sounded pretty cool. A lot of people think we're a Christian rock band because we have the word grace in our name. We are so far from being a Christian rock band."
That seem fairly clear to me, if you listen to the lyrics of Three Days Grace you can tell fairly easily that they are not a Christian band. Yes they may have some songs that sound spiritual but spiritual is a far cry from being Christian usually. They also use profanity in their music, yes I understand that Christians are not perfect and they make the mistake of swearing sometimes but if you have enough time to ponder it between writing it, recording it and releasing it and it's still included, then odds are Christianity is not in your life enough to get you classified as a Christian band, for the most part at least.
