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

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
I Just don't get it! Why the hell is many skillet song in first place are you people dumb or something. Do you do not have good taste in music.
I mean this song has everything emotion, best vocals everything. I think rebirthing is better than whispers in the dark

3Rebirthing - 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!

4Awake & Alive - Skillet
Amazing Should be second after dead inside on the same album
Awake and Alive is the awesome song ever
Listen to sample

5Jesus 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..
Best CCM Song of all time... Seriously #6. SMH!
My ring tone. Always garners attention. What will people say...

6Already 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.
Listen to sample

7Higher - 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.
Listen to sample

8Monster - 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!
This song should be #1, one of the best Christian Rock songs of all time!

9Perfect Life - Red
Best band ever. :Oh
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.
Just wow should be first...

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

The Contenders

11Fully 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!
Listen to sample

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.
Listen to sample

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.
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
I fell in love with this song from the first notes. It's simply epic! Touches your soul...

14Outlaws - 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!


Listen to sample

15Comatose - 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
Listen to sample

16Boom - P.O.D. Listen to sample

17Be 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.

19Savior - Skillet

20Unbreakable - Fireflight Listen to sample

22Set It Off - P.O.D. Listen to sample

23Your Love Is a Song - Switchfoot
Listen to sample

24Rise - 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.

Listen to sample

36Take the Bullets Away - We As Human
Such a deep and meaningful song! Amazing!
Listen to sample

37Everything - 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.

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.
Listen to sample

73What Faith Can Do - Kutless Listen to sample

74Paperthin 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.
Listen to sample

75Save Me - Magdalene Ft. Boomerang
I think this song deserve a mention and in top 10 too. Give it a listen
They are the best

76If We Only - Red Listen to sample

77Fading - Decyfer Down
If you like Christian Rock you must listen to it, I'm damn sure you r gonna play again again this song.. It should me among top 10
Listen to sample

78Not Gonna Die - Skillet Listen to sample

79Sorry 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.

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.
