I... love this song, I'ts like it's speakig for me, it says I need a hero, to save me just in time. It's like it's waiting for the arrival of someone who will get to rescue you from your own disbelieves and then it turns that you are the hero, and the hero awakes in your depths. It is so strong that gives me power :')

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!

2 Awake and Alive Awake and Alive Cover Art

Easily their best! It has a strong, deep message, epic music, epic vocals... IT IS SHEER PERFECTION! It really means a lot to me!
Top ten Skillet songs are:
1- Awake and Alive
2- Monster
3- Not Gonna Die
4- Undefeated
5- Rise
6- Sick of it
7- Feel Invincible
8- Rebirthing
9- Savior
10- Never Surrender/Out of Hell/Forgiven (I know, a three way tie, "make up your fricking mind" and all that...)

I don't generally like voting for the no. 1 ranking song, but its true, this is my favourite. 'Lucy' 'Salvation' 'Would it matter' are tied second. I'm not one bit religious or a Christian, but irrespective of that, I will say I like these guys very much and think their songs demonstrate some of the best mixed male-female vocals you can hear in rock music.

I love the female part even more in the song. Gives a awesome feeling to the song.

This is not the best Skillet song. This is the best song in the world. This is the only song that I've played over and over and never got tired of. I also love Jen Ledger's part. Skillet is simply awesome

3 Whispers in the Dark Whispers in the Dark Cover Art

first Skillet song I've ever heard, eventually it was the song that made me check more songs. It's the reason why I liked this band in the first place.

Great beat, lyrics, and overall great sound! truly a masterpiece! It also has their best guitar solo (with not gonna die as a close second)

Best song ever... Vote for it... Just listen best lyrics, best music and best vocals by John cooper... Really deserve 1st position and other songs like rebirthing, comatose, sometime and not gonna die tonight are also deserve high place... All songs of skillet are great... With great backing vocals by Jen ledger... If I have to vote for best album I will vote for comatose...

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

4 Monster Monster Cover Art

Dad let me listen to this song when I was 6. Ever since then I've been in love with skillet and they have been my favorite band since then. That memory of the first time I heard it has burned into my memory and I only have a few memories from age 6 and this one I still remember. Completely amazing! Only thing I wish it had would be Jen Ledger or Korey Cooper vocal for parts, but still my favorite right above Hero and The Last Night.

Why this was not in first place from the beginning I'll never know, but I LOVE this song! How anyone could say that it is overrated right now is a mystery to me too. This should be #1!
1. Monster
2. Comatose
3. Open wounds
4. Whispers in the dark
5. Sick of it
6. Falling in the black
7. The Last Night
And so on down the line. I just love his songs overall! Go Skillet!

It's definitely one of Skillet's heaviest songs. Has good lyrics that depict a struggle within. The guitar riff is very catchy and is really brings power to this song. Similar to Chevelle in that the riff is simple but delivered in a powerful, emotional way. The lyrics sound similar to Animal I have Become by Three Days Grace.

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

5 Comatose Comatose Cover Art

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 such an underrated song I love it way more than all the other songs by skillet. This song not only sounds the best but has the best lyrics by far. I have no idea how whispers in the dark and awake and alive are higher than this song. Please listen to this song at least a few times before you vote!

I was already sold after the first 30 seconds of this beautiful song, and the lyrics only strengthened the fact that this is my favorite. Awake and Alive might be the ultimate theme song for Christianity, but this is the anthem of hope for the inevitable to turn out alright.

I got hooked by Hero and bought this album. Then I heard Better than Drugs, and decided to buy the Comatose album. This song is by far the best one I have heard by them and I absolutly lost my voice after Winter Jam. They're my favorite band of all time.

6 Rebirthing Rebirthing Cover Art

Have you heard of the orchestra? It's just amazing and it makes me wanna rock out. The strings were just awesome and the lyrics did match perfectly with the song. It's the #1 song that makes me feel like I'm in a story. In this, I feel like rebirthing back to life.

This song should easily be #1 along with Comatose. One of the best, most original songs they have. Meaningful lyrics, amazing singing- and mixing orchestra with guitar for the most part?! Amazing song.

All of these songs are great... But this is one that I have and still can, listen to over and over again.
If it had went mainstream like monster, it would easily jump to top of the list.

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!

7 Not Gonna Die Not Gonna Die Cover Art

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!

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.

I've been a panhead since the collide days and own every album, so picking a favorite is tough, but NGD sums up everything I love about Skillet's current lineup: John's great, rough vocals, Korey on the keys, Seth's shedding solos, and Jen's beautiful backup. The intro on the end of Good to Be Alive makes it even better!

This is awesome song! It says what the world is like and how a lot of people want to control you,but you won't give up and you will live on your own rules; not anybody else'.
Not Gonna Die helps me dealing with my depression and anxiety and other people's expectations.I'm thankful to Skillet because of this song!

8 The Last Night The Last Night Cover Art

This song is so emotional and realistic to people. Skillet always knows how to connect with their audience and this emotional rock song proves that. This song got me through a lot of hard times when I was younger and I know others feel the exact same way. It's amazing!

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.

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

9 Savior Savior Cover Art

Amazing song, should be #1. The rhythm, the lyrics, the meaning, everything about this song is amazing!

It's a really good song. Good Guitar.. Good Everything

This is the song I will never know how to rock out to because it is too epic.

I love this. It's... Just... It makes me think of what happens to my friends...

10 Collide Collide Cover Art

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!

Epic through and through. I don't even mind that it's a little long simply because of the quality

Live version of Collide from Comatose Comes Alive just kills all the other songs!

collide is by far the best song by skillet even if its a little long it is still the best

The Contenders

11 Falling Inside the Black Falling Inside the Black Cover Art

Skillet is one of my favourite bands though I'm not even christian and Falling Inside the Black is my favourite Skillet song. It should have been number one! Really John Cooper has an inspiring voice and this song always gives me goosebumps..

THIS should be in the top 5 at least. Take Hero and Awake and Alive out (they're great songs and they're catchy, but they're lacking in great lyrics. ) This song is REALLY catchy.

This song really inspires me.. It really touches my soul, I can't really understand why this song isn't on top of this list?

Amazing song, touching lyrics, awesome guitar, this song is one of the best things I have ever heard. Thumbs up Skillet

12 Rise Rise Cover Art

I like Skillet, but how is this above all the others? The lyrics are messed up and don't make any sense (unless someone explained to you what the writer was trying to say) and it sounds sort of stupid, but it's catchy. I mean come on Skillet! Beeping?

This is my third favorite song right next to Whispers In The Dark and Monster. I LOVED the chorus, I loved the second verse, but the first verse was my favorite part. The song is so catchy. But sorry, it can't top my favorite song yet, Monster.

Best song by Skillet. John you are great. Your voice is really great. You changes it with need. Really great! It's my favourite song. I can listen to it every time. I also feel that it gives me physical strength.

This song has the most meaning out pf most of their songs I think. You can feel the emotion in this song, and everyone can relate to it. It has a great, catchy tune that is a lot of fun to sing along to. definitely my favorite song!

13 Salvation Salvation Cover Art

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

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

Rate this song in top 5 man come on jen ledger's voice is so awesome man I love it

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

14 Looking for Angels Looking for Angels Cover Art

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

amazing and unbeliveable :D

and all of us are looking for angels but they never appear
jus love zis song

15 Feel Invincible Feel Invincible Cover Art

How can anyone not rock out to this song?! It is so incredibly uplifting, inspiring, and the best pump up song there is. The beat, lyrics, and bass is so great!

definitely deserves to be higher. I can understand it's only at #15 now because it's much newer than some other top 10 songs. It's gonna get there after few years!

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

This song has to be #1, get voting people, easily their best hands down, no questions asked

16 It's Not Me It's You It's Not Me It's You Cover Art

Very Good Song But all of skillet is AWESOME! But you should check out 21 pilots very good stuff I would like to go to a skillet concert Also it would be cool to meet them

I love this song.

Keep up the hard work guys love you all

This is actually my favourite song by Skillet

Very good song I think needs better rank

17 Those Nights Those Nights Cover Art

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

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

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

18 Circus for a Psycho

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!

This song is just amazing! I don't know why don't a have a better ratting

Crazy guitar solo! An incredibly unique skillet song!

19 Lucy Lucy Cover Art

For them to open up about the meaning of this song and write such an emotional ballad gave me so much respect for this band, even more so than I already did. It's just a beautiful piece of music.

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

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.

20 Sick of It

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

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!

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

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

21 Would It Matter Would It Matter Cover Art

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 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.

Its... Just.. I feel so connected to this song and it describes my life. I'd suggest listening to this song. Its.. PERFECT. C':

22 Never Surrender Never Surrender Cover Art

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

What!? This song isn't in the top 10? Why? So sad and emotional... Great lyrics... Vote for it!

Best song by far.
The lyrics are so fantastic

This song really speaks to you. Never Surrender!

23 Forsaken Forsaken Cover Art

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...

What the hell this song is so low... It's 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!

24 Sometimes Sometimes Cover Art

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!

Awesome song by skillet! Should be at the top of the list and deserves more attention!

There is no song in Skillet that is bad, it is also a great song which has good lyrics. A good rock song. asjdkjf
It really gets moy vote for being a good hard ro

Best song ever. It will get you pumped.
