The Top Ten

1 18 and Life

The Guitar solo, the tune, the lyrics, all this packed into one, making it one of skid row's best remembered songs. - AmINumberOneYet

The message brought out from this song is just plain genius. Not to mention with the finishing touches... the solo and the tune with it.

Love that song, and I have a son who sat eighteen I had worries so I made him listen to that song. Now he's 25 has a good job and is engaged and he has a five year old. I think that song really make him think. We sing it together every know and again.

By far their best song. Simply put, it just rips & hits the high notes that make your neck hair stand!

2 Youth Gone Wild

I have to say, 18 and Life is a serious competitor for Skid Row's best song. However, as much as I love it, I would truthfully choose Youth Gone Wild over it -- it simply seems to have a POWER to it, that 18 and Life also has, but seems to be a bit lacking in.. I would choose both if I could, but I can't, so I'd have to say Youth Gone Wild takes the cake. Rock on!

This one's the anthem of an entire generation growing up in the 80s. Not only is it Skid Row's best song, it's one of the best of rock anthems ever.

Only just got into skid row, and this stands out, sebastian is insane. Heavy riff, screaming lyrics, badass drums, perfect rock song

Awesome song

3 I Remember You

the video n the song itself is the reason...

Excellent song on there very first album:skid row. Brilliant song that reminds me of the time that I'd listen to this on my walkman. And out of all the songs that I remember, I remember you is the song I remember the most. - AmINumberOneYet

This is the song, that is the best ever made by skid row.
But I don't understand why isn't it at the TOP!

Voters-vote!

Close competition with 18 and life but that is the best one

4 Slave to the Grind

Such a heavy song, the guitar alone will blow the roof off! Crank it up and you'll see what I mean. m/ - UpTheIronz1980

I won't be the one left behind, I'm gonna vote for Slave to the Grind!

Excellent opening riff, amazing lyrics and brilliant life song

Amazing, heavy Snake riffage and Sebastian's brutal vocals on this song are unmatched.

5 In a Darkened Room

Slow and abit boring, but good nevertheless. - AmINumberOneYet

Sebastian shows off his full range in this song-the mid section scream that goes into the chorus in one breath is awesome! Who ever calls this song boring has no appreciation for great tuneage. And that opening lead guitar, beautiful! Sets the tone whats about to follow.

The guitar is a rare pleasure. Definitely my favorite sound of Skid Row.

Darkened is spelled wrong

6 Wasted Time

There's one thing that there isn't on other Skid's song, that's touching vocals, Sebastian really did a great job with this song, along with the simple but great solo, and the great 12-stringed Guitar chords. This song was played and singed with a great energy and Sebastian and Dave put their best on this song. Somehow, this song itself isn't what makes it the best, what makes it the best is the band energy and emotion playing' this song

Although I think Psycho Love and Youth Gone Wild are absolutly amazing songs I have to go with Wasted Time it's unbelievably powerful, it's that damn good that there's Metallica and Iron Maiden songs that can't keep up with it, SKID ROW ROCK'S! Oh and by the way I don't see Creepshow, Mudkicker, or Riot Act anywhere on this list they're unbelievable songs as well.

This my favorite Skid Row song.. I mean I love 18 And Life but this song just makes me cry sometimes.. The feel of the music is extraordinary... The guitar work is awesome... And Sebastian really did his best in this song! All together it is a complete masterpiece! Really touching...

The top 3 songs are overrated.

7 Livin' on a Chain Gang

Awesome song really underrated and excellent singing by Seb bach
My Fave Skid row song by far.

8 Rattlesnake Shake
9 Midnight / Tornado

The guitar solo is sweet!

10 Quicksand Jesus

I believe this song is Skid Row's best song, it's one of the most epic songs I've ever heard, everything about this song is just PERFECT.. The lyrics.. The vocals.. The solo, and I think that Sebastian vocals are amazing in this song and maybe even better that his vocals in other songs, this song is so Underrated, and diffidently one of my favorite five songs of all time

One of the most epic songs to come out of the 90's. The power of the guitars combined with Sebastian's howling vocals make this a rare gem. I almost feel like I'm in a trance when I listen to this one. It's just got so much raw power to it. Sebastian also holds one of the most unbelievable high note for what feels like eternity. Skid Row forever!

A very special song that manages to be a ballad while at the same time sounding heavy and with excellent lyrics that demand you to pay attention. Skid row at their best, really.

I f you don't have chills by the end of this song you are dead, unbelievable power and passion.

The Contenders

11 Sweet Little Sister

Very good

Awesome - EddieVanHalen2001

12 Riot Act
13 Get the F*** Out

Best song off of Slave to the Grind. Heavy and aggressive, and really catchy.

14 Monkey Business

One of my fav Skid Row songs. Great vocals and a blast to play! - UpTheIronz1980

Food Choices. Wasted Time/Quicksand Jesus must be some of Bachs best vocal performances of his career.

Paradise City, anyone?

Love this song. This got me into Skid Row after I heard it played on SNL.

19 Breakin' Down

Criminally overlooked song of the mid-90's. A more mature sounding Skid Row; Sebastian sill roaring, just more restrained. Best song off a terribly under rated album

A song that made the subhuman race album brilliant(although the rest were still great too) - AmINumberOneYet

Maybe the peak of Skid Row. Great vocal & the part with the 'solo' is genuinely touching
