Although the pop/rock quintet hails from Nashville, Tenn., their
die-hard tour morphs into the wild mission of "being one
of the few Christian bands to take over the globe." All Star
United's earth-trotting concert schedule - reminiscent of megasuperstars
like U2 and the Rolling Stones - should come as no surprise given
the title of the band's sophomore album, "International Anthems
for the Human Race."
The genre mishmash and fun-without-apologies style that characterized
All Star United's debut is back, in even fuller, bursting-at-the-seams
force. Why? Both lyrically and musically, International Anthems
is a reflection of five young men who've seen an incredibly diverse
array of people and places in the last couple of years, and have
incorporated those experiences into all that they do.
Albeit well-traveled, All Star United has found time to build
quite a successful career right here in the United States. In
addition to an exhaustive state-side touring schedule, including
two tours with labelmates Third Day, All Star United's self-titled
debut received a Grammy nomination for Rock/Gospel Album Of The
Year, and garnered the band four #1 radio singles including the
#1 Rock Song Of The Year ("Smash Hit") in 1997. The
band was also honored by CCM Magazine and the readers of Release
Magazine as one of the Best New Artists Of 1997. 7 Ball Magazine
voted All Star United one of the Ten Best Albums of 1997.
All Star United
This band is the best.It puts Christian fun into christian joy.
They are uplifting and keep my spirits up. They keep God near to
me even if I don't want Him to be, I can't just
stop hearing his message in thier music.

As a musician I listen to the music and harmonies first. Allstar
United has a positive message, but the song writing and talent
is what grabbed me. Whether they talk about God and his creations
or deep sea fishing, I belive they are the top of the pops!

Their music is so touching. Not only is their music great but it
teaches about GOD!

I think that All Star United had awesome music and gives a message
in the music to follow GOD and listen to what he wants us to do,

I like Allstar United because they are not afraid to be different,
to stand up for what they believe in. They provide great music with
a powerfl message for teens today. They are a must have. Allstar
gives us a good beat with a great message. Their song "Put
your arms around me" just really spoke to me and made me realize
that other Christians can get lonely and it is okay.
