- Are the band members Christian? If the answer is no, you can just stop reading now.
- Do they market to Christians? There are several bands that don't want to be labelled "Christian", but don't have a problem marketing their music to that demographic. If they don't do this at all, then there's a good reason for the lack of a label.
- Do they sing about God? This can get confusing when so many songs just say "you" without specifying who "you" is. Go and find out who "you" is. And don't get this information from YouTube comments; see what the songwriter actually said.
- Do they talk about God outside their music? Do they mention their faith in interviews? Websites? In the part of the liner notes when they're thanking people? Concerts? If not, give it up.
