Is there theology in new music?

A friend of mine, Michael Jay, recently posted on Facebook a beautiful tribute to the theology found in hymns. In fact, he said he thought the theology in hymns was richer than the theology in formal statements of faith.

This has created quite a firestorm, because some of his friends objected, citing the lack of depth in some of today’s contemporary songs. So here are my questions (looking for comments): what contemporary songs have great theology? And can you think of traditional hymns that are shallow in the theology department?
