The Justin Beibers of really bad Christian rock

It's Final Placement, a group of earnest Christian teens from Midland, Texas. Judging from this video, Midland, Texas is one ugly-looking town. Anyway, despite their best efforts, Final Placement have become a new internet meme. There was even a Facebook petition to get them to play South by Southwest. Their first (and thus far, only) release, "Shine," has been covered on piano and ukelele. And the guitar solo...well, it just has to be heard to be believed.
