Keep up the awesome work!

3Whispers In the Dark
I can hear this song a hundred times and not get tired. Is my best rock song.
No you'll never be alone
When darkness comes I'll light the night with stars
Hear the whispers in the dark.
And dude the guitarist is amazing
I've listened to Skillet since they started. The song that they show most talent and skill is this one. The guitars, vocals, drums, and everything else is perfectly executed. Its inspiring and beautiful. There's no way this is not number one.
It's the best alter rock song I've ever heard. Surely it's a better song than HERO. Also, Skillet is the best alter rock band ever.
[Newest]Have you heard Seth Morrison's guitar solos in this song? It is Amazing!

AWESOME song. My top 5 are:
1. Monster
2. Hero
3. Awake And Alive
4. Comatose
5. Whispers In The Dark
One day Too Late is by far the best by this one is just close behind! Too bad my favorite is not on this list... This song is amazing however! My first Skillet song and will always be my favorite rockish one by them
I love this song! I think this should be #1! I like the monster voice 2 it is epic! Please vote for this song! It is awesomeness!
[Newest]#1 it's the best
More comments about Monster

this song is such a beautiful song! bet those who didn't vote for this haven't heard this one!
This is definitely no. 1, the only missing in this song is jen ledger, why is she not singing in this perfect music?
Why the heck would anyone vote for awake and alive over comatose! Comatose has by far the best lyrics out of all the songs by skillet and is just such an amazing song! Please at least listen to this song before you vote for garbage like Awake and Alive. Comatose is so underrated!
[Newest]Beautiful song! No. 1, perfect music and the best lyrics

One of the most epic songs ever. They have a string orchestra doing half of the music.


An amazing s=song just pumps you up when ever you listen to it. It can make you happy or sad but good song never the less!
because its like coming back to god and let him know your their
[Newest]I feel the effort put into this song was greater than the others. Plus I love the Woman's voice in it. Plus it gets me pumped up.

7The Last Night
This song has gotten me through so much. My friend showed it to me and said it reminds him of me. Admittedly I cried my eyes out when I saw the similarities between the lyrics and my life. But the song is pure truth. Skillet is amazing
Just awesome and it speaks the truth. It made me weep and its lyrics are the mirror image of some peoples love life. Best song of the century
This song is just amazing, I cry when I hear it! <3 it is really personal to me and I just can't wait to listen to it! Everything it's good about this song especially the lyrics!
[Newest]This is my favorite song, because this song saved me!

8Not Gonna Die
Tremendous strings, a great guitar solo, rocking drums, powerful emotion, and strong lyrics makes this one of the best, if not the best, Skillet songs of all time. I'm an avid Skillet fan with favorites such as Collide, Savior, Rebirthing, Whispers in the Dark; trust me, I'm inclined to make this song in the top 2 easy.
The only reason this isn't at the top is because it was added late off their new album. This song has everything I like in a song, all mashed into one. I can listen forever and not once get sick of it. I think it's about a guy in the middle of war, and all his comrades around him are dying, and he's about to be with them. Them he remembers his wife and swears he won't die for her. Amazing song!
My favorite song from the Rise album! I like listening to it with the outro of Good to be Alive, too.
[Newest]A really cool song I like it it's starting is tremendous everything is fine I love it

Live version of Collide from Comatose Comes Alive just kills all the other songs!
Epic through and through. I don't even mind that it's a little long simply because of the quality
Literally the only reason I voted for this song is the music video. Watch it, (it's the one with the heroes) I very rarely tear up, but its truly inspirational!
[Newest]Perfect to listen to in the rain^^

This song inspired me to start playing guitar... how can it not be at least in the top 5 and whispers in the dark should be no 1.. not no 3
It's a really good song. Good Guitar.. Good Everything
My second favorite skillet song. The guitar is the best!
:) The drums are also rely cool. I think savior should be in third.
[Newest]Reminds me of my stalking obsession

The Contenders

11Falling Inside the Black
Thisis one of the best by them, the singing ^^ lyrics are really great in here.
Should have been the best song, at least should have been in top 2! Skillet for the win!
My list also would not include whispers in the top 3!
One of the bes

Sklet,... You are very good. Your lyrics usually have inspired me. Now I just listen your song. You should be at number band
[Newest]I love this song I can't get enough of it I jam to it in my car

12Looking for Angels
amazing and unbeliveable :D

and all of us are looking for angels but they never appear
jus love zis song
I LOVE THIS SONG SO MUCH, everywhere I turn people are looking for angels I can totally relate to this song and the lyrics are so beautiful by FAR better than Hero up there why would ANYONE in their right minds pick hero over this!?
Another great song! Really fun to listen to and the meaning behind it combined with the lyrics makes this song unbreakable.

13Those Nights
A very special song to me, my best friend Zac and I got thro all those nites with each other!
This song has a very special meaning to me. Why isn't it higher? I think this is the best song Skillet has done. I love the other ones don't get me wrong: Hero, Monster, Awake and Alive, etc. But this one is the stuff of legend.
This song is extremely personal to me. Gets me very emotional, should be way higher. Such a beautiful song

14It's Not Me It's You
Very Good Song But all of skillet is AWESOME! But you should check out 21 pilots very good stuff I would like to go to a skillet concert Also it would be cool to meet them
Great song...needs even better spot
Very good song I think needs better rank

Probably added late
Come on guys, vote this now
I know y'all love this song
Great job, Skillet! Keep it up!
Next-generation Awake and Alive! Simply one of the best song of all time.
Frekkin amazing song, there are two types of people: those who love the song and those who haven't heard it yet.
[Newest]Rise is such an amazing song!

16Sick of It
Intense song from beginning to end and has a great beat. It's much better than #29
This is amazing live and all together a catchy tune
The screaming was amazing
[Newest]I love the ending part! & that music just moves me away! Superb

17Circus for a Psycho
Crazy guitar solo! An incredibly unique skillet song!
Seth gets my respect for every single guitar solo and the rest of the song too. Jen Ledger gets respect too for the drums. Korey Cooper for the rest of the guitar parts and then John Cooper for the vocals. ABSOLUTELY AMAZING. I like it better every time I listen to it!
Seth's guitar is insanly awesome! I don't know why this isn't in the top 5...
[Newest]The video is superb... Lovely

18Would It Matter
I think everyone can relate to this song at one point in their life. We all know how hard life can be and sometimes you just don't want to go on and you wonder "why am I still here? Its not like I'm important. " this song has lyrics that describe that beautifully.
This song is just wonderful, it describes just how I feel right now... This song is beautiful and I love it. It is so my favorite song from skillet, and after that his hero, but yeah, this song can make me cry sometimes, I love it!
This song is awesome! It describes your feelings when you feel unwanted and useless
[Newest]This song should definitely not be #21. It is the most meaningful song they have!

19Live Free or Let Me Die
18! this song is so underrated but 18! it needs to be in the top 10 if not the first place. maybe it's because this song is not famous as monster and hero but not 18!
This is perhaps one of the best hard rock songs ever. His voice plays in perfectly with the screaming instrumentals. Definitely gets my vote.


Everything is perfect in the song! Vocals, instruments, everything! It really deserves to be in the top 10. I think it should pass "rebirthing" in my opinion... Surely got my vote.
[Newest]Come on people vote

This is a beautiful, emotional song. I loved the story behind it and loved how they used rock to enhance the story. It was beautiful, heart-wrenching and brought me to the brink of tears. Listen to it if you haven't, you'll be moved, a lot.
This song is amazing and deserves a higher ranking. This song is sad and beautiful, and can apply to many situations besides what the song was for. It's about the pain of missing somebody, it hurts to think about it. One of there Best. I love Skillet
The most beautiful and moving of all the songs; written about friends who had an abortion when they were younger and afterwards their couselor told them to hold a real funeral to help them get over it- so when you know the back story its even more amazing.
[Newest]I love this song.
