DC Talk is listed in the Encyclopedia of Contemporary Christian Music as “the most popular overtly Christian act of all time.” TobyMac, Michael Tait, and Kevin Max brought together one of the most incredible triple threat bands of all time. They were not defined by single genre. They encompassed rap, R&B, hard rock, pop, and even hip hop. Their music defined the nineties for a whole generation of Christians. Though they are on hiatus, their music continues to inspire. Here is my list of Top 10 Favorite Classic DC Talk Songs.
