See the video for the band’s acoustic version of The Wallflowers song One Headlight here:

The name Relient K has always been synonymous with melodic songwriting, tongue in cheek humor, and all around good music and after eleven years, five full-length albums (of which three have been certified Gold), six EPs and a Christmas collection, nonstop touring, a string of hit singles, a Grammy nomination and two Dove awards,  Relient K’s uniqueness remains intact, “the exuberant punk-pop ensemble running through a handful of inspired cover songs. Covers have been a staple of the group’s live set since their beginning, and it’s clear, based on the high quality of these versions, that they have an affinity for picking songs they can really deliver” says All Music.

Payable on Death – P.O.D.

A Voice of Life

Almost 27 years after the band's first studio album, P.O.D.'s message is arguably more important than ever. "I believe (our message) is even more relevant now than it was then. If you really listen to 'Youth of the Nation,' we still have these tragedies going on. There’s a lot of searching still going on out there."

Comrades 2020

Becoming Comrades

The trio of Comrades – husband and wife Joe and Laura McElroy alongside drummer John Gaskil – is used to living in a van and touring the country. Now, their new normal has provided them with a moment to "be adults" for once. We recently sat down with the McElroys to talk more about the spiritual reality within life, how soon they'll be able to release new music, and how koalas are their new normal.

Here: A quick look back at the magazine's 35-year history with Van Pelt and new owner, David Stagg.
