The Top Ten

1 Hero

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

Favorite song by far I love the beat

Amazing and beautiful

3 Whispers 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.

The music after the chorus is very nostalgic. The lyrics, the rhyme, the music are all perfect.
I will be the one that's gonna find you.
I will be the one that's gonna guide you.
Those lyrics give me strength.

4 Monster

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!

When I listen this song I feel like I killed all persons I hate.

5 Comatose

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!

This is the best song ever

6 Rebirthing

Just my favorite song ever

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

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

7 Not 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.

Love the song played it at my birth day

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!

If you turned the climax of Brandon Sanderson's Hero of Ages into a song... great

8 The 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 song just really touches me inside, and it's actually about a realistic topic. This is why I love Skillet so much. You know about those singers who always sing about cheesy love and such? Sure, they may still be nice to listen to, but then awesome bands and meaningful music such as these are forgotten.

9 Savior

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 is the song that made me a life long fan of the band it's my favorite, should be number 1 because Awake And Alive is SUPREMELY overrated

10 Collide

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!

The most epic song skillet has ever done.

The Contenders

11 Falling Inside the Black

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

Great song

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

13 Looking 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.

Most underrated song ever. Love this masterpiece so much <3 I just feel like I could do sg

14 Feel Invincible

I am constantly restarting and cranking this song. It is all energy and power, and when Jen Ledger starts banging the drums on this, one can't help but be energized. Great, great song...as are 90% of Skillet's songs though

I love skillet band as same as this song

nice

Amazing

15 Salvation

Two words: Jen's Voice

Jen's first lead singer song! This song is filled with so much love to God!

Rise may not be the best Skillet album but this track is just plain beautiful. I love Jens vocals! - Metalmaniakkk

Korey Cooper's Voice just makes this song truly amazing. This Should Definitely be up there in Top 15.

Its Jen ledger that sings alongside john cooper in this particular song

16 Those Nights

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.

A very special song to me, my best friend Zac and I got thro all those nites with each other!

This song is extremely personal to me. Gets me very emotional, should be way higher. Such a beautiful song

This song should be higher! I love this song. It's amazing and the lyrics are so relatable

17 Circus 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!

First: Epic guitar solo! Nice! This song always makes me a Little bit crazy, love that!

Great song...needs even better spot

Very good song I think needs better rank

19 Lucy

Albeit not my favorite Skillet song, it is so beautiful and sad, I could listen to it all day and all night.

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

Lucy is absolutely beautiful. It has so much emotion, and just like every other Skillet song, it is fantastic, but I think it just goes beyond the majority of their songs, and I think it should be much higher than 12. In the top 5 at least, I believe

20 Sick of It

WAY better than Lucy! Lucy is lame and sick of it ought to be #1 on any heavy metal list! How is lucy better? IT'S NOT!

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

One of the better songs from Skillet. Definite Top Choice for first song to listen to when you first get into Skillet

This is amazing live and all together a catchy tune

21 Would 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

This song is way too far down on the list. Just because it is a little less known than their famous songs, Would it Matter definitely deserves the top ten.

22 Never Surrender

This song should be in the top 10. I love the feel of this song, it is my motiviation! His voice fits perfectly for the theme of this song, and I love the background music as well. My second favourite song for sure!

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!

This song is brilliant, Never Surrender change my life

The most underrated Skillet song. Very powerful, especially if listened to after Fingernails (another very underrated song).

41? Really? It's their BEST song

Definitely one of the best songs by skillet. rili cool song

24 Forsaken

What the hell this song is so low... Its my favourite song... This song is always in my mouth.. When I'm free I automatically start to sing this song... Its best from skillet just listen to it... John cooper is best vocalist his voice is very energetic...

Hardcore song, one of the best off the album Collide. Seriously people, where's your taste in music?!

I love this song! I listen to it every day! - LarkwingFlight

Ok the big questions is
what happened to John Cooper and skillet?
They used to be sooo heavy and good in Collide and Comatose but they became wag worse after Awake.
It's unbelievable
I love this song from collide along with self titled,savior and fingernails...but I think I should check out more :P
This is way heavier than everything they fan do today.
And believe me I always listen to post hardcore and stuff like that... - Idiot244

25 Undefeated Undefeated

Military back ground never surrender under any cost

26 Burn It Down

This song ranks #9 on my list of greatest songs ever, and boy, every time that opening guitar solo comes in it just slaps you in the face with adrenaline, much like Monster, my second place, which I can't believe is currently behind their soso song Hero, and the Whispers in the Dark song I resent so much. a lot of Skillet songs tend to follow the same pattern, and I find it very hard to distinguish one song from another, but this latest album has truly taken giant risks and strayed very far from Skillet's usual. Some of them, like Famous (metal version of Glad You Came) failed, but this, along with Back From the Dead and the Resistance (although that one is a bit classic Skillet), and the chorus only of Stars and Feel Invincible, which are otherwise quite overrated, hit the mark right on its head, and I finally have a song that is better than Monster in Nu-Metal in general. Every second of the song builds up more tension until it's finally released expertly in the chorus, which sounds ...more

27 The Resistance

This is the greatest song evah

Great song, remeinds me of xcom

Best sog ever

My favourite song in unleashed!

28 Fire and Fury

Gorgous music and vocals, the combination of John Cooper's and Jen Ledger's voices is amazing. Fantastic lyrics too.

Powerful song, very nice intro. This should be higher, seriously. Listen to it.

This was my favourite song for weeks, should not be so low

Destiny got a hold on me...

29 Famous
30 Good to Be Alive

Seriously? Why is this so low on the list? Great song!

31 Eating Me Away
32 Don't Wake Me

This is, personally, the song by Skillet that I can relate to the most; a lost love, which haunts through the power of dreams; driving a person mad with regret, rendering them powerless to the comfort that their dreams give them...

Obviously the best ballad they have great singing and lyrics - RockRetard

This is a cool balled. Maybe Hero, Monster, and Awake and Alive kinda overshadow this song on Awake but still think its Awesome!

This Is the best skillet ballad ever. Just Amazing.
This should be the top ten skillet songs
1. Awake And Alive.
2. Rebirthing.
3. Don't Wake Me.
4. The Last Night.
5. Savior.
6. Lucy.
7. Never Surrender.
8. The Older I Get.
9. Those Nights.
10. Comatose.
For some reason I just hate Monster, Hero, and Especially Its not me Its you. They are just so annoying.

33 Sometimes

Sometimes is the best song of Skillet, my list is:

1 Sometimes
2 Monster
3 Hero
4 Awake and Alive
5 Forsaken

This is my favorite skillet song and contains my favorite line in all of music: "I'm sometimes in- and sometimes -sane! " Literally the best!

Best song ever. It will get you pumped. - EmptyShadow

34 Open Wounds

The awesomest song of skillet. The song contains a very catchy lyrics and awesome electronic music. This song should be in the top ten. I don't know why this is in 18th position. Please rate for it and make it to the top ten.

It was written about his dad but it can relate to relationship problems to

Very good song, fast pace with catchy lyrics.

The greatest song ever I love this

35 American Noise

My 2nd favorite. Hero is best, but this one deserves to be higher. I can't wait until Rise comes out! - Alpha101

Even though it's different from most of their songs, it's beautiful, and has a way of making you feel better about life after listening to it.

One of my favorite songs and John Coopers himself. Why does no one else like it that much? :/

Way to good for 26.

36 What I Believe

39 Stars

This song is the best song from them. Totally should be the number one best song from these guys.

Good song once you listen to it a few times.

Best Song of Unleashed! Should definitely be in the Top 3!

It's just beautiful

40 The Thirst Is Taking Over

One of their most underrated songs on one of their underrated albums. It's way better than any song from Unleashed and Rise. It at least deserves top 20 if not top 5. Listen to it. It's heavy, melodic, has some synthetic sound to it, and is one of their most gut wrenching, tear jerking pieces. Listen to it and see.

41 Back from the Dead

This song is a full blast of energy that never lets you down it's just fantastic!

This is definitely my 2nd fave behind "feel invincible"

"One word. WHOOO! "

42 Out of Hell Out of Hell

This song I sent awesome!

Out of Hell is my favorite song from the bands new album Unleashed. It has this heavy feel to it unlike every other track. I hope this track gets more recognition in the near future. - Metalmaniakkk

Yes one of the only golden skillet songs on their new album. Besides I want to live and this song none of the other songs really impress me a lot.

Should be in the Top 3!

43 Forgiven

Please listen this song guys, what a nice melody...

You know what? People who don't like this song or like this more than Monster is not a true Skillet fan. - TristGamer

This song should be within top 3 songs by skillet. So addictive tune.

Are you kidding me? THIS SHOULD BE THE FIRSTTT! People have no taste of music. AT ALL!

44 Saturn

This song is beautiful
Peace be upon you brothers and sisters - Idiot244

Skillet is an amazing band. Been a fan of them for 5 years and I get to see them live at YC 2013 Edmonton, Alberta Canada

45 Better Than Drugs

So was this added late?
Must be the only explanation why it isn't in the top 10 at least!

One of the best songs by skillet so far!

This song is amazing. The comatose album is the best album by skillet followed by awake, collide, and rise. This song is very powerful and sounds good.

The song talks about how god is better than all the other addiction the lyrics are amazing true about this life how Christ helps us get out of our addiction and it is possible only through jesuschrist to break free from such strong hold, the song's got a fantastic guitar solo one if the best of skillet

This song and the truth in it is correct.

46 Alien Youth

Um all these people must be new fans because theyve never heard of this song. Its the best!

Love this one!

47 My Obsession

Come on... This songs is REALLY good I love it

This song's only number 33? I expect it'd be at least in the top 25. Seriously, it's one of Skillet's most awesome underrated songs.

48 My Religion

This song has one of the best back-beats in hard rock. It may be hiding towards the end of the album, but it's hard, bluesy feel makes it easily my favorite skillet song.

Song has a great beat to it and the lyrics are pretty good. Should be higher than what it is just because the song is OBVIOUSLY Christian from other song counterparts that let you choose the meaning.

Good religious song john talks about his faith in jesuschrist

49 Freakshow

I'm not sure why this is so low on the list...
It's a really important song to me, and the lyrics are incredibly relatable. I love it

This is my favorite song by Skillet, you guys should listen to it!

What the hell! This is is so awesome! Please vote :'(

This song is perfect for hellsing

50 A Little More

This is my absolute favorite Skillet song! It has such strong emotions about love between people, but also ties in the love of God. Plus his voice in this song! He sings so well, I wish they would do more songs like this one. (Although I love everything they do)
