"Jesus Freak" is a song by the American contemporary Christian music group DC Talk. Released on August 1, 1995, it was the lead radio single from (and lends its name to) the group's fourth album. The song was written and produced by Toby McKeehan and Mark Heimermann. Lyrically, the song is about standing up for the belief in Jesus Christ in the midst of persecution.
After three albums of hip-hop oriented sound, the alternative rock sound of "Jesus Freak" was considered unexpected by fans and critics alike. However, the song, and its accompanying music video, received many critical plaudits from secular and Christian sources alike and helped to define DC Talk as serious artists and innovators. The song later earned DC Talk three GMA Dove Awards.
