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

It is har to find a song that can touch you this way when you look back to watch you at 18 from the long distance

Listening to it right now

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.

2 Youth Gone Wild

Awesome song. One of my favourite riffs of all time.

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

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

The guitar at the start and the lyrics are so memorable. Definitely the best.

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!

4 Wasted Time

The best ballad, simply lyrical.

I agree. The top 3 songs are definitely overrated. The arrangement and musicianship in this song are way more credible than the first 3.

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.

5 In a Darkened Room

Perfect song from the stellar second album. The vocals and guitar work are in perfect synchronicity

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.

6 Slave to the Grind

Sounds like it's on Ride The Lightning

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

7 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?

Nice intro build up like Dire Straits MTV

8 Quicksand Jesus

Some of their songs are a little hokey but this one is by far the best. Best lyrics.

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.

19 Sweet Little Sister

Very good

20 Get the F*** Out

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

21 Jingle Bells - Monster Ballads X-Mas
22 Psycho Therapy
23 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

24 Here I Am
25 Born a Beggar
26 What You're Doing
27 Iron Will

Quite a underrated skid row song, addicting chorus. - AmINumberOneYet

28 Ghost

Don't know how this song is not on this list. Definitely deserves to be in the top three. Guitars and solo are amazing

In my opinion...Top 5 Skid Row song! "Born a Beggar" is also a great song!

29 Forever

This song is really underrated... Should be in at least top 5... This song is what skid row all about

Too Young To Fall In Love sounds similar to this one

I mean, those lyrics are perfect...

My Enemy, The threat, and Big Guns are definitely the best skid row songs.

You can be my enemy and I don't care...this is one of best skid row

31 Piece of Me

Always liked this one.

32 Psycho Love

insane song... Should be in top 5

This one drives me crazy whenever I listen to it. Top 10 at least...

33 The Threat
34 Into Another

Strange strange tune and song in general, but is a good song. - AmINumberOneYet

35 Beat Yourself Blind

The gigs.. The vocal style.. the music style.. Still fresh till now..
