The music is really catchy... Hats of to them for creating such great music... This song made me a huge fan of skillet

My absolute favourite Skillet song! Every time I listen to it It's like listening to it for the first time. Also love the fireworks in the video.
Keep up the awesome work!

Catchy tune, great lyrics, smacking beats... I love everything about hero... Made me a big fan of skillet

Hero has one of the best intros that a rock song will ever have. The beats are awesome. The song is headband-worthy and the music video rocks - LightningBlade

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!

This is the song that introduced me to Skillet. The song is very energetic and its amazing. The monster voice in the song is terrific. - LightningBlade

4Whispers 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.

Whispers in the Dark has to be the darkest hard rock song by Skillet. Its number one on the best Christian rock song list and I'm surprised to see it at number 4 on this list. - LightningBlade

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!

The song is beautiful and that intro is so distinct. - LightningBlade

One of the most epic songs ever. They have a string orchestra doing half of the music. - moose4life19

Great song only found it recently but loving it all the same!

7Not 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.

Not Gonna Die is probably the best song from Rise. The violin intro is good and Jen's addition to the vocals are sweet - LightningBlade

8The 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

I have loved Whispers in the Dark, Forgiven, One Day Too Late and Awake&Alive for some time now and have a lot of respect for Skillet as a band. The Last Night is a new song of theirs to me and I am already in love with it. An amazing song, incredibly powerful and moving, clearly more people need to hear this or else why is it only number 7 on the list! Say Goodbye is another fab one.

This is in my top 10 list

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!

Absolutely Killer when you see it live. The best song from the best band.

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.

This song, in my opinion, is the best song from Collide. The acoustic intro is amazing. There are no words to describe it and then the hard rock sets in in the most amazing fashion. The song is beautiful. John's slow paced vocals were good too. - LightningBlade

The Contenders

11Falling Inside the Black

Thisis one of the best by them, the singing ^^ lyrics are really great in here.

Sklet,... You are very good. Your lyrics usually have inspired me. Now I just listen your song. You should be at number band

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

This is Skillet's most beautiful song. But that's just an opinion but I found that a lot of people agreed with my opinion. A couple of years ago Falling Inside the Black was at number 7 on this list and now its 11. That's terrible. - LightningBlade

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.

14Those 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

The chorus is what makes the song so fun to listen to. I liked the live performance of this song too. - LightningBlade

16Sick of It

Intense song from beginning to end and has a great beat. It's much better than #29

This is one of the most energetic hard rock songs I've ever listened to. It pumps my blood and Skillet performed it live and they rocked the stage. - LightningBlade

This is amazing live and all together a catchy tune

I know the group for a long time and I say this song is one of best 5 in my humble opinion

17Circus for a Psycho

Crazy guitar solo! An incredibly unique skillet song!

Seth's guitar is insanly awesome! I don't know why this isn't in the top 5...

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!

I love the quick intro and John Cooper screaming "Circus For a Psycho! " Good song. - LightningBlade

18Live 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. - sirbradford

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.

The verses are sung well by Cooper and the guitars are well played. The chorus is good and its definitely one of Skillet's best. - LightningBlade

19Would 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

Being a bonus track, I thought this song would have gone unnoticed but I'm happy to see the attention it gets and its one of Skillet's slower songs as well. - LightningBlade

20Never Surrender

I personally have a lot in common with this song and its amazing performance is no exception

Best song by far.
The lyrics are so fantastic

This song really speaks to you. Never Surrender!

That heart touching meaning and the fiery will. - LightningBlade
