Jeremy Lin's Favorite Bands!!

Knicks point guard, current media sensation and gloriously triumphant underdog Jeremy Lin is a pretty religious dude, so don’t pile on him for his choices too much cuz, yeah, both Lecrae and Hillsong are Christian acts that I’m not aware of. caught up with hoops’ (and the Internet’s) hottest dude to ask the Harvard man about his music recommendations. It should be noted that, Lin has been doing very little press in this hot streak, which a friend best described as an insane NCAA Tournament run embedded into an NBA regular season, so getting him to sound off on anything lately is a pretty tough task, despite the fact that he’s unnervingly charming. Hope he’ll hook up a top-notch sound system in his new pad, which is no longer his brother’s couch. Check it out after the jump.

As long as he keeps doing this, he can listen to whatever the hell he wants. Also, Lecrae, I sure hope flossin’ isn’t a sin because according to your picture, you’d have a lot to atone for.

  1. Wesley Snipes – Jesus = Lecrae

  2. “Jeremy Lin is a good player but all the Stereogum hype is because he’s Asian. Black players listen to the same music he does every night and don’t get the same praise.” – Floyd Mayweather

  3. “…he just raps a lot about the Gospel…so if you’re a big lyrics guy, I think that would be a good fit for you.”

    I usually go the Lecrae route just by opening up my Bible and pretending Drizzy is narrating the Book of Revelations.

  4. This makes me think…Are there any Indie-Christian bands?

  5. But will he break his silence on Lana @ SNL?

  6. Mark Hollis of the always-venerable Talk Talk was a very devout Christian. David Tibet (Current 93) seems to have taken up the mantle of Christianity but his is a very esoteric version of that religion.

  7. Let’s see… This list seems lincomplete, these bands are very linsperational, music is linstumental to his preparation, his music taste isn’t very linteresting, I wonder if he listens to music while he plays lintendo…

  8. I’m gonna have to listen to a lot of Slayer and Morbid Angel to purge myself of this clip and allow me to respect this guy again.

  9. Does he like Odd Future? I heard he was a big fan of GobLin

  10. Coming from a life-long Christian who’s also a musician and indie rock dude (and who has played Hillsong tunes at churches countless times throughout my life), I can confidently say there’s practically no good Christian indie other than Sufjan and pre-agnostic David Bazan/Pedro the Lion. There is a surprisingly rich Christian hardcore and metal scene: Zao, Underoath, Living Sacrifice, Extol, Norma Jean, and probably like 1,000 other bands since I stopped listening to that stuff in 10th grade. I’m still trying to figure out why Christian content and good music seem to be mutually exclusive.

  11. I actually saw Lecrae at a Christian music festival three years ago. Dude put on a good show. I’m neither proud nor ashamed to say this.
