The Top Ten

Whispers In The Dark - Skillet
Yes! I am glad I am not the only one who thinks that. I love skillet. Even though I agree with this list, my list would be a little different.
1. Whispers in the dark.
2. All Around Me - Flyleaf
3. Monster - Skillet
4. Strong Tower - Kutless
5. My Obsession - Skillet
6. Saturn - Skillet
7. I'm So Sick - Flyleaf

Whispers in the dark really is an amazing song. It not only brings out the Christianity in them but it is catchy with amazing lyrics and nice guitar and drum parts. There is no other song like Whispers in the Dark. It deserves to be number one. I can't think of another song to be number 1
This song should be at 1! Not even two! Here's what makes the song so great:

The tune
John's singing
Ben's solo
The meaning

And it's Skillet as well! Skillet should always #1!
With the melody, guitar solos and john's great voice, this song should be at the top of the list. My friend zama even said that it is his greatest song he had ever heard
[Newest]You know you've been successful when you have 4 of the top 5 songs in a genre of music

2Breathe Into Me - Red
I love this song. When they started playing it at their concert, I just about cried for joy and I do not normally cry over anything (unless Skillet is playing "Lucy") but I love the message behind this song. It reminds me that I need God and is the song of my life.
This song is the most awesome song ever.
This is one of the best christian songs period. It is the epitome of our relationship with God, when we've gone off he edge, and everything is falling apart. That is when we realize we need God to "breathe his life" in to us. This deserves to be #1
[Newest]A True Masterpiece, the pinnacle of Christian Rock, maybe even Alternative Rock as a whole. Absolutely amazing song...

3Awake & Alive - Skillet
Amazing Should be second after dead inside on the same album
Awake and Alive is the awesome song ever

4Monster - Skillet
10? No ways! This song deserves a place in the top three for sure! Monster is one of the best Christian Rock Songs I have ever heard! I think this list is really unfair if this song remains at tenth place!


Come on! Absolutely one of the awesomest songs I have ever EVER heard! And probably my favorite Christian Rock song ever! At least it is in the top ten, though!
26! 26! Are you serious? It is not underrated but it is extremely/highly underrated! It should either be first or at least come somewhere in the top 10! Just not fair!
[Newest]This song should be #1, one of the best Christian Rock songs of all time!

5Rebirthing - Skillet
I love this song! Its amazing and every time I listen to it, it gives me the goose bumps and I feel absolutely amazing inside! I hope other people become as sensible about this song as I am! I love you God! I am a true believer and I will never leave your side, AMEN!

6Jesus Freak - DC Talk
Any other band in this list... Claim to be christian but I only enjoyed their music but could never worship God while singing these... I have heard all of these songs and bands all through my teens.. But if its called Christian then maybe It should remind me of God and my spirit should really sing..
My ring tone. Always garners attention. What will people say...
I think Jesus Freak Should be ranked higher on the list it's what got Christian Rock started.

7Already Over - Red
It's Already Over Now!
So many good choices. there's not a song on here I don't like but this has to be my favorite; I I had to pick.

8Higher - P.O.D.
This is the best song ever by the best band ever, Christian or not. And by the way, whoever says P.O. D isn't Christian you have no idea what you are talking about.

9Fully Alive - Flyleaf
Aw man, I sorta-kinda-ish grew up with this song - especially the band - in junior high/high school service at church. awesome song! Love it!

10Move - Thousand Foot Krutch
I listen to this song on loop all the time


The Contenders

11Perfect Life - Red
This is off of Red's new album: Release the Panic. It has a kinda different sound, but it's one of their best efforts to date. Perfect Life is the best song of the album, and will soon be dominating this list. It is only 60 right now because is just came out last week.
Best band ever. :Oh
Just wow should be first...
[Newest]THIS IS MY FAVOURITE BAND. It should be in the number 1 spot

12Feed the Machine - Red
Its only 26 because its new it will go up. this is one of Christian rocks most amazing songs to date. Red is just all around awesome. The rest of their album until we have faces is great too.

13Dare You to Move - Switchfoot
DYTM is one of the best songs ever. It's the song for which switchfoot is known for. This song changed my soul, gave me energy when I gave up, and soothes me when I am tired. My all time favourite song.
I fell in love with this song from the first notes. It's simply epic! Touches your soul...
This song should be way higher than this. No ther song will touch your soul like this song. This and Your Love Is A Song are 2 epic songs

14Comatose - Skillet
Not my favorite believe it or not but a very close second. How is Fight Inside by Red not on here because that song crushes any of these songs well except comatose, its just a little better than comatose.
This has got to be the baddest christian rock song of all times. I'd put it among the top 5. Skillet should just be number 1.
Come on guyx! If you all listen to this beautiful song... automatically this will go no. 1

15Be My Escape - Relient K
This should be number 1 because Relient K is the best christian band ever and this is their best song. The Show by Hawk Nelson should be on this list and it should be number 2. Breathe Into Me should definitely NOT be number 4 on this list because Red is an okay band and that's not even their best song. Pressing On by Relient K should be on this list. Friend Like That by Hawk Nelson should be on this list. And Get Back Up by tobyMac should be on this list.
Definitely should be in top 20 at least. great combination of rock and God.

16Outlaws - Disciple
This is a super-duper awesome song. This song makes you fly.. I mean its so so good and pacey that you just can't stop listening to it.. Disciple's 'After the world' is good too! And Switchfoot's songs should also be higher!


17Not Gonna Die - Skillet

18Savior - Skillet
Jesus Singing a song over you... His desire and love is surpasses all understanding, no matter what you've done or who you are - he loves you
Rocks my face off!

19Holy - Lightswitch

20Rise - Skillet
Of the new album, third lead single. I would say it's in the top five for Skillet, for sure. The lyrics found here are more profound than anything found on Awake. There are also some electronic flourishes which really add life to the song, reminding me of the older albums like Invincible and Alien Youth.
Why is this down here. Its the best rock song I ever heard. Its very catchy with the melody and all. I know its not their best song but its supposed to be higher.
The album is great.rise is my favourite, should be at the top.
[Newest]Rise album is awesome

21Boom - P.O.D.
I think it's cool they named a movie after this song.

22Unbreakable - Fireflight
My favourite song right now, best song I've ever heard ( I am not joking about it)

23The Last Night - Skillet
If the last night is 44th, then the top 46 shouldn't exist...

24*fin - Anberlin
Great track to cap off a great album by Anberlin one of their best Christian songs.

25Bring 'em Out - Hawk Nelson
Definitely the greatest Christian punk rock song of all time from the greatest christian punk rock album of all time!

26Godspeed - Anberlin
Nice song. Really a blast of music... Try it to know it. Sure A worth of try. Even listen to anberlin, s Paper thin hymn. Simply Superb
It blends in beautifully with the debut at the beginning of their album Cities.

27Set It Off - P.O.D.

28Your Love Is a Song - Switchfoot
A beautiful mixture of rock and slow rock that will glide you and literally will make you feel God's love. This song can change your life.

29Never Alone - BarlowGirl
Should be a lot higher. So much passion and beauty in this song. Will never forget the first time that I heard it. The sing makes me so emotional and I just love listening to it!
I think the song is Barlow Girl's best song. Most of their other music is boring. Never Alone ends right when your getting into it.
This song beautiful and has so much feeling behind it

30Phenomenon - Thousand Foot Krutch

31War of Change - Thousand Foot Krutch
One of the best songs ever. Just listen and you will like it

32Sorry About Your Parents - Icon for Hire
This song is strong and beautiful, and although Icon doesn't like to consider themselves a Christian band, all of the members are Christian and they include many Christian ideals in their songs. "Sorry About Your Parents" has good morals and gives a good message to struggling teens.
This is one of the greatest Christian rock songs of all time. This is what Christian rock should be about. Icon is a thousand times better than overrated bands like Skilket, whose lyrics are less than interesting.
This is what Christian music should be about.

33Buried Beneath - Red

34Death of Me - Red

35Dear X, You Don't Own Me - Disciple
The String insturments make a wonderful build to the hard drums and electric guitars.

36Everything - Lifehouse
Everything by Lifehouse should definitely be number one. It is the absoulute best Christian song I've heard. I'm actually trying right now to learn it on the piano its so good. Just the tune and the beautiful lyrics. And the skit is so amazing, we actually did it for my schools FCA movement.
I just listened to this song for the first time and I'm about to listen to it over and over again... Its inspirational and the skits make the song even much more stronger than ever... Lifehouse is awesome
I love this song, and after seeing the skit that goes along with it, I can't get enough. So powerful.

37No Plan B - Manafest
More of a rap song then a rock song but still a very good song. Manafest has a pretty good voice.

38High Above It All - For All Seasons

39Not Alone - Red

40Dark Horses - Switchfoot

41The Last - Underoath

42Falling Inside The Black - Skillet
Greatest song. Epic. Please vote for this. Listen and you will know why I am requesting you to do this.
This song is the best of all time

43Empty - Love and Death
Love and death is a great band check out washed by blood best song ever

44I'm Not Alright - Sanctus Real

45Frontline - Pillar
If you think skillets song whispers in the dark is good compared to this song then you aren't a rock fan.

46Take the Bullets Away - We As Human
Such a deep and meaningful song! Amazing!

47The Older I Get - Skillet

48When I Go Down - Relient K

49Fire and Fury - Skillet

50In Christ Alone - Newsboys

69I'm So Sick - Flyleaf

70More Than Useless - Relient K

71Shadows - Samestate

72Paperthin Hymn - Anberlin
While its really hard for me to vote on this list because I like most of the bands but haven't listened to all of them enough to make a judgement call, this is song is the best Anberlin song besides maybe The Feel Good Drag, but I would give this song the nod because for me it introduced me to Anberlin. Love this song.

73Please Don't Let Me Go - Group 1 Crew

74Born Again - Newsboys

75Beautiful, Beautiful - Francesca Battistelli
This is the only Christian song I know. that already makes my credibility really bad, but the cool thing about this song is that you can't even tell it's a Christian song, and that's what I love about it.

76What Faith Can Do - Kutless

77Save Me - Magdalene Ft. Boomerang
I think this song deserve a mention and in top 10 too. Give it a listen

78If We Only - Red

79Fading - Decyfer Down

83Who We Are - Red

84Scarlet - Disciple

85Boomin' - Tobymac

86Devastating Winds - Tourniquet

87Christmas Song - Flyleaf

88My Sacrifice - Creed
Yes, it's more mainstream, but it is by far one of the most beautiful songs about the love of Christ ever written; better than anything on the list so far. And Scott Stapp has an amazing voice.
This song is a great way to get people who like classic rock listening to Christian music. Some other songs that should be on the list are new lease on life and gotta let it go by MercyMe.

89Be Somebody - Thousand Foot Krutch

90Bring the Ruckus - Manafest

91Sick of It - Skillet

92Glass House - Red
This and Die for you are the tow most amazing songs ever.

The best worship song I have ever heard!

94Free Like an Eagle - Divinefire

95Trapped In This Age - Narnia

96Voice of Truth - Casting Crowns
This song is just too good y'all.

97Off With Her Head - Icon for Hire
"Don't let go, Savior."

98Fight Inside - Red
Flat out best Christian rock song I don't know why this song wasn't already on this list. This song has such a great meaning and is even a better song than many of the secular rock songs. If you haven't heard this song check it out.
Yeah, this should be at least in the top 15.
This is around what my top 5 would be:

1. Fight Inside by Red
2. Comatose by Skillet
3. Collide by Skillet
4. Empty by Love and Death
5. Youth of the Nation by POD

99Come Home - Relentless Flood
Hear this song it is amazing.
