Best Relient K Songs

The top 10 best songs by a Christian Alternative Rock band we all know and love, Relient K!

The Top Ten

1 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.

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! - maddyk13

! 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!

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

2 Deathbed

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.

Not only the best RK song but one of my favorites of all time!

4 Devastation 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

5 Candlelight

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.

6 Which 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.

Helped so much with my angst.

7 Must 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

I love this song! - RiverClanRocks

8 Forget 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! - drishtortion

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.

This is my absolute favorite song by Relient K, and although some other songs are contenders, this one is filled with the musical flow, the //ridiculous// vocal range, and the impactful and pensive lyrics that led me to love every inch of this band.

9 Pressing 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!

"It's not in the budget."

10 When 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...

I think this song sould be on the top 5..

The Newcomers

? I Celebrate the Day
? The Lining is Silver

The Contenders

11 The 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.

12 Faking 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.

This song is a little weird in my opinion. I perfer other songs by them. - RiverClanRocks

16 This is the End

I read an online rumor that this song was written about Katy Perry back when she and Thiessen first knew each other. Anyone able to verify this?

17 Savannah

Why is this so low on the list! One of my favorite songs by them. Love the running upright bass.

How is this not number 1?! This song has everything, great guitar riffs, great lyrics, catchy chorus, and not to mention the whole version of the song is 3 parts, one being a capella.

I love the message, and it also has a really good, get-up-and-dance part as well as a slower but in the song.

20 Curl Up and Die

I can't tell you how many nights this song has helped me through, this is definitely one of my top 5 picks :) the lyrics are just so deep, without being corny... Just like all their songs LOVE RELIENT K

My favorite. With the orchestral build and Matt's beautiful voice, building up into beautiful falsetto. The poetry of the lyrics, and the music are perfect. Still gives me chills

Peeps who really wana know whats top ten of relient k song. Trust me, this belongs up there. Fantastic and unique melody. Its those song where you hope you can listen to when it is raining and you decided to walk down the street with it.

Relient K write better love songs than any of the mainstream pop artists. - RiverClanRocks
