Stellar Kart is a Christian pop punk band from Phoenix, Arizona, USA . The band is signed to INO Records and released its first album in February 2005. Some of the singles from their debut album, ''All Gas. No Brake'' - including "Finish Last" and "Life Is Good" - have been played on Christian radio stations such as Air 1. Their album, ''We Can't Stand Sitting Down'' was released on July 25, 2006. The album's first single "Me and Jesus" hit #1 for 7 weeks on the Hot Christian Songs chart and won the 2007 Dove Award for "Rock/Contemporary Recorded Song".

Stellar Kart derived their band name from working with kids on youth camps. Their name is often abbreviated SK, as seen in the band's music videos to "Activate" and "Life is Good". The band has been interviewed on various television shows, including ''TMW'' and ''The Zone'' (on the Christian IPTV service Sky Angel). Stellar Kart has also appeared on a season finale of ''The Logan Show''.

The band's third album, ''Expect the Impossible'', was released on February 26, 2008. Their new album, titled ''Everything Is Different Now'', was initially made available during November 2009 at concerts/online only—its official release in stores is scheduled for March 9, 2010.

In October 2008, the band performed at the Rock Church in San Diego, California in support of Proposition 8 and the banning of same-sex marriages in California.
