Top 20 most favorite Switchfoot Songs from 1997-2011


There are thousands of bands in the world but only few of them produce such enigmatic approach with lyrics about of life, love and faith combined with modern genre of rock and pop. This American rock band from California touches their listeners with their unique Christian Rock. Being highly favored in their genre, they yield beautiful albums with meaningful songs over the years. I have been a fan since college and first heard their music on the movie A Walk to Remember.

The band’s extremely talented members:

Jonathan Mark “Jon” Foreman [lead vocals, guitar]
Timothy “Tim” David Foreman [bass guitar, backing vocals]
Chad Matthew Butler [drums, percussion]
Jerome Earl Fontamillas [guitar, keyboard, backing vocals]
Andrew Philip “Drew” Shirley [guitar, backing vocals]


Their great albums:

The Legend of Chin [ 1997]
New Way to Be Human [1999]
Learning to Breathe [2000]
The Beautiful Letdown [2003]
Nothing Is Sound [ 2005]
Oh! Gravity [2006]
Hello Hurricane [2009]
Vice Verses [2011]
