An alternative rock band from San Diego, California. The name comes from a surfing term meaning
to switch the position
of your feet on the board. This also alludes to taking on a different perspective on life. Contrary to popular belief, they
are not a Christian band; although the members individually are Christians. Songs are usually written in Socratic
dialogue containing socially
aware lyricism. Many consider them a sell-out, poser, one-hit-wonder band, while in fact their music hasn't strayed at all from their roots.
I find it interesting that
pro-Switchfoot comments here are positive and polite, (with the exeption of one, I think
, sarcastic comment) while anti-Switchfoot comments are extremely derogatory and misinformed in nature. I think
alot about the band itself.
