Speaking to Billboard John Cooper of Skillet the Christian Rock band which has seen success in both Christian and mainstream rock genres shares the struggle of being true to who they are and their faith in the mids of appealing to more secular mainstream audiences.
“Cooper says they’ve gotten a lot of warnings over the years and advice as to how to handle their dual career as both a Christian band and mainstream rock act. “They go, ‘You’ve got to stop talking about your faith. It’s going to kill you at radio,’ and we say ‘No, we’re not going to do that.’ To me that’s what this song is about. I kind of drew on that,” he says. “There’s a line in the chorus that says, ‘Still the one who is standing now,’ and that’s how I feel about Skillet. You all said it couldn’t happen and we’re all still standing. That’s what ‘Legendary’ means.”
