* ChristianRock: They're more subtle than most bands in the genre, though. You can still enjoy the band, regardless of your faith. This is probably the reason why they are one of the more successful examples; see GettingCrapPastTheRadar below.

* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: Of a sort. Since the label "ChristianRock" is essentially a kiss of death for any band looking for mainstream fame, the band writes lyrics in such a way as to avoid making direct references to their faith, while making it clear that they're believers. It worked well enough that subsequent Christian rock bands (such as Music/{{Flyleaf}}, Skillet and Music/{{Creed}}) have done the same thing.
** They get crap past their ChristianRock fan base on several occasions as well. "Lights Out" contains the line "we tore the roof off this mother". "On the Grind", featuring members of "secular" hip hop groups Psycho Realm and Boo-Yaa T.R.I.B.E., is PG-rated GangstaRap replete with references to violent thuggery and "pimpin'". The same song unambiguously mentions the female genitalia in its first verse. On several songs the band refer to themselves as "[=OGs=]" (original gangsters). The mild profanities "hell yeah" and "damn" show up on "If It Wasn't for You" and "Kaliforn-Eye-A", respectively. Their early song "Live and Die" samples a line from "Gangsta Gangsta" by [[Music/{{NWA}} N.W.A.]], "And here's the plot: takin' niggaz out with a flurry of buckshots."
** An aversion happened with "I Am" from ''Murdered Love''. It was heavily edited and/or taken off some releases because of a PrecisionFStrike that occurs in the chorus. Also, the word "faggot" is used.
