I'm not usually much of a fan of contemporary Christian music, but right now I'm listening to a CD called "Karaoke Superstars" by a group called Superchic[k] and it's a lot of fun (their official website is still under construction). The CD came recommended by my pre-teen nieces and nephews.

Superchic[k] has an edgy pop sound with bits of disco-funk, hip-hop, etc. thrown in for good measure. Moreover, their lyrics can have great moments of cleverness and humor. Most address issues that face teens and pre-teens (friends, peer pressure, appearances, self-image, pop culture, etc.), but do so more with values that are informed by faith than with explicit, knock-you-over-the-head Christian jargon.

And if I'm remembering correctly, their song "Get Up" was used among the theme music during the X Games.
