Mad At The World was formed in
1987 in Southern California by brothers Roger and Randy Rose.
Few Christian bands have enjoyed
the longevity and underground critical acclaim as Mad at the World.
From the day mailman and lead singer Roger Rose stuck a tape in a
record company executive's mailbox until current times, Mad at the
World has turned heads with their provocative music.
The first two albums featured a
synth/pop style of music. Then, in order to have a sound more amiable
for live performances, the band's musical style shifted to hard rock
for the next three albums. The last two albums brought some member
changes and a more retro sounding style of music.
Lyrically, the band delves into
the many struggles we face in life and reminds us of our hope in our
Saviour, Jesus Christ. Issues dealt with in the songs include drugs,
anger, hopelessness, and lost loves -- as well as hope, love, peace,
forgiveness, blessed relationships, and eternal life.
