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!

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.

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.

6Faking 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.

7Devastation 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

8Pressing 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!

"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

11Forget and Not Slow Down
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.
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

12Which 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.

I don't know how this song isn't even on the list. Relient K has so many songs all of which are great so it's next to impossible to choose one. But I'm surprised this isn't even in the Top Ten or even Top 20! It isn't even on the list which surprised me the most. Just listen to it, trust me. The best seasonal song by Relient K yet, and one of their best songs of all time.
