In today's Christian music news, we'll see some of today's top Christian acts joining forces for a good cause.

Rock The DBP

New Orleans- Christian music acts have teamed up to save one of the most important and majestic animals on the planet- the duck-billed platypus. Several bands including Flyleaf, Third Day, and Switchfoot have teamed up to lend their talents to the "Rock the DBP" concert.

"The duck-billed platypus is one of the most intelligent and important creatures on our planet," says Lacey Mosley, lead singer of the band Flyleaf. "With 'Rock the DBP' we can help provide...bread or whatever it is those things eat."

Drummer for Switchfoot Chad Butler says, "We felt this was a great opportunity for our band to do something special for the environment. Everyone does 'Save the Whales', but where's the love for the DBP? If we don't take care of them, who's going to? Is a world without duck-billed platypus's a world that you want to live in? Didn't think so."

The musical acts seemed intent on supporting the duck-billed platypus's and whatever it is that they do.

"This is about making the duck-billed platypus's feel safe. They need to know that it's ok to live in Canada and the northern United States without fear," says Mosley.

When reminded that the duck-billed platypus is native to Australia and Tasmania Mosley responded, "Well whatever. That's even more important then. Have you seen some of the crazy animals that live in Australia? There are so many venomous, and weird looking animals down there, I'm surprised the DBP made it this long."

When reminded that the duck-billed platypus is actually a venomous and weird looking animal Mosley responded, "For real? I had no idea. They look so cute and furry in cartoons. Is it too late to get out of this benefit?"

Organizers of "Rock the DBP" are still planning on holding the benefit, but are toying with the idea of changing the name to "Rock the Whales."
