After gaining a foothold in the contemporary Christian music scene, alternative rockers Switchfoot went mainstream with 2003's The Beautiful Letdown. This double-platinum album straddled the line between sacred and secular rock music.
Emerging in the late '90s with a pair of indie LPs marketed to CCM radio, the band began adding elements of synth rock, post-grunge, and power pop to its oeuvre in the 2000s, resulting in chart-topping major-label successes like Nothing Is Sound (2005) and Hello Hurricane (2009), the latter of which brought home a Grammy Award for Best Rock Gospel Album. Describing themselves as "Christian by faith, not by genre," Switchfoot continued to beat the modern rock drum into the 2010s and beyond, releasing a string of well-received efforts like Where the Light Shines Through, Native Tongue, and Interrobang.
