The Top Ten

Be My Escape
Great song. I'm a Christian but I usually am not fond of Christian songs, so, as you can imagine, I was hesitant to try out this new band A friend had recommended to me. But I was pleasantly surprised. I love this band and this is my favorite song they have. I love how the lyrics in their songs can be seen as talking about God or just a normal situation in life. Great music, lyrics, beat, ideas and stories, everything. I'll never get tired of this band or this song.
! What a song I mean you can go on listening I never get bored! The best!
I love this song listen to it... The video is very nice!
Possibly the most famous Relient K song. The first I heard from an album other than Anatomy. It got me completely hooked on Relient K!


[Newest]Amazing song! This was the song that lead me to relient k and I'm so grateful!

This may not be one of their most upbeat songs, but I will argue that it is without question their most powerful piece. I still remember crying after listening to this song for the first time and it still makes me tear up a bit. But even as sad as the story of the character presented is, it still leaves a message of hope and a better future.

In short, this is a truly uplifting yet tragically beautiful piece that certainly deserves a lot more recognition.
Really?! It's this far down? This is one of the best pieces of writing of all time! Theissen sat down and wrote a completely original and beautiful piece of art in which he describes the life of a man that never happened. I defy even the best of song writers to come up with such an in depth story of victory. Not only is it a creative masterpiece, but it is one of the best stories of finding victory despite a lifetime of failure, which is the true beauty of the grace of Jesus Christ.
Oh my goodness... This song is a massive, 11-minute masterpiece by THE BEST band ever. The music is amazing, and the lyrics, while they tell a tragic story, gives the listener the truth that regardless of who you are or what you've done, God will ALWAYS love you and take you in.
[Newest]I really wish this was better known. If it was it would be on top for sure.

3Who I Am Hates Who I've Been
Great message yet great music. It's energetic and fun.
I love this song. It's great for when you are sad, and very famous also. It has an awesome music video!


How can this not be the best RK song?
[Newest]One of my favorite songs.

Candlelight is basically a guys song dedicated to a girl who he finds to be truly magnificent. To me this is one of Relient K's top ten songs. It also makes a great Valentines day song
This is their best song. It's so catchy.

5Must Have Done Something Right
"We should get jerseys, 'cause we make a good team. " Cheesy, but incredibly catchy and adorable!

This is literally the most adorable song I have ever heard. It makes me sad that it's this far down on the list!
This song are one of those songs that make you say, " oh my gosh this sounds familiar! ' even if youve never heard it this is one of my most favorite songs from them, I love it
[Newest]I love this song!


6Devastation and Reform
It surely deserves something better than no. 12! It has amazing guitars and superb words to it! I would, if I could, put it in the top 6 for sure!
A place in the top 5 is what this song truly deserves! Come on people! VOTE for this amazing song! I just can't get it out of my head! That's how great it is!
This song just has a great beat that gets you moving
[Newest]I listen to this song every single day! So catchy!


7Pressing On
So there are those songs that run in your head all day and you hate them after two days. This song has been in my head for nearly two years and I cannot get enough of it. I just can't press past this song
Man, this must be the most popular song. This song has been on a couple of shows. Plus the acoustic version is killer.
definitely the BEST relient k song, whenever I feel down this song makes my day!

8When I Go Down
I could fall asleep to this song. Matt has an amazing voice and this song really shows it off. Definitely there best chill song.
It's very good song that gonna make you feel realize that you are sad but then your gonna feel better at the last...
This song made me cry..

9Forget and Not Slow Down
I'd rather forget and not slow down, than gather regret for the things I can't change now! This song is amazing, wonderful and stunning! It deserves a place in the top 5!


Easily one of their best choruses! Makes me sing out loud every time I here it... And come on that post bridge build with the harmonies... Epic
Lyrically and musically, their best song. It's one of the most original songs ever written, and the "i could spend my life just trying to sift through, what I could have done better but what good do what ifs do? " is maybe the most wisdom ever put into 2 lines. Cheers, RK.

10Which to Bury; Us or the Hatchet
An energizing song. Full of emotion. The chorus was amazing. The way the he sang it was just so right. One of their best, no doubt. It should be at least higher on the list.
I love this song! The way he wants his message to go across is just so amazing! Definitely one of my favorite songs by relient K.
Look up the acoustic version of this song. I believe that it is by far their best song. Also curl up and die should be in the top ten. The song is so deep.
[Newest]A masterful portrayal of being frustrated with someone you love. Very relatable to many situations and its quite catchy

The Contenders

11Faking My Own Suicide
Underrated song. It's about a guy who wants to fake his own suicide to make his girlfriend realise how much she really loved him. Unique, fresh, and pleasing to hear!
I'm not sure if it is talking about a girl or not, but the first time I hear this I thought it was talking about Jesus. Either way it's an amazing song!
This song has a touching story and is much more than the average love song. It should be top five at least.
[Newest]It's just so awesome

12Jefferson Aero Plane

13Let It All Out
This is a beautiful song Its like a prayer. I used to listen to it instead of sleeping..i loved this song that much. Must be higher in this list. "I celebrate the day" is another beautiful song that should be higher.

14The One I'm Waiting For
Energy and passion shine on this song more than any other Relient K song. It's an amazing upbeat song, perfect to kick off MMHMM.

15This Is the End

16Give Until There's Nothing Left

It's my, my trademark move
To turn my back on you
It's my, my trademark move
To realize I should improve

Enough said. Awesome song.

18Sadie Hawkins Dance
So classic, an amazing. One of my favourite songs in the world (Other Relient k songs running up)
Great song. Upbeat and has a pretty entertaining story that's told through out the song.
Great song. Should be no 2 not no 24

19(If You Want It)
I have to say, this song is beautiful, one of best lyrical songs Matt Thiessen has ever written.
Best lyrical work of relient k hands down.

20The Best Thing
Finishing the list off on a light mood... "This is the best thing, the best thing that could be happening, and I think you would agree the best thing is that it's happening to you and me! "

This song is the Best Thing that ever happened to Relient K! Definitely should be in the top ten instead of Devestation and Reform.
The piano is awesome on this song
