2 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.

This song is so inspirational

3 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

I really love this one because this song it's dedicated to our heroes that are always ready to help us in any way, and this song it's perfect for them.

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!

It is better than the rest

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 one of the best Skillet songs I've ever heared, but still not my top 1 skillet song. It would go like this
1. What I Believe
2. Not Gonna Die

6 Rebirthing

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

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. - MissRWBY202

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.

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!

My favorite song from the Rise album! I like listening to it with the outro of Good to be Alive, too.

Definitely my favorite song from them - patoezequiel

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 is in my top 10 list

9 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!

Perfect to listen to in the rain^^

10 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.

ONLY 10?!

The Contenders

11 Falling Inside the Black

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

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

Honestly this song should be in the top five listen to it. It sounds so good.

13 Sick of It

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

One of the best Skillet songs. "Sick of It" is so underrated. - deandinosaur5

Great song...needs even better spot

Very good song I think needs better rank

Such an amazing song! saddening that it's only 15 on the list.

15 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 is the best by far

16 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

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!

AMAZING! number five AT LEAST

18 Live Free or Let Me Die

18! this song is so underrated but 18! it needs to be in the top 10 if not the first place. maybe it's because this song is not famous as monster and hero but not 18!

This is perhaps one of the best hard rock songs ever. His voice plays in perfectly with the screaming instrumentals. Definitely gets my vote. - sirbradford

Everything is perfect in the song! Vocals, instruments, everything! It really deserves to be in the top 10. I think it should pass "rebirthing" in my opinion... Surely got my vote.

This song should be at top 10

19 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

20 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.

21 Lucy

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

Not a top 5 for me, but definitely deserves top 10! - MattCozadd

22 Salvation

Two words: Jen's Voice

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

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

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

23 Feel Invincible

I've been listening to skillet since they came out with Rise in 2013 and they are my favorite band, and my favorite song has been savior since then but when they came out with this song as soon as I heard the guitar licks at the beginning I knew just how awesome it was so now it is definitely my favorite song overall

Good new song hopefully the rest of unleashed is as good

Great song. Definitely their best.

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

25 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

True message true melody true lyrics

26 Sometimes

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

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!

It's not that great
I didn't like it
It's sort of noisy

27 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.

I love this song, the lyrics really stand out to me. definitely should be rated higher.

28 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!

Don't Wake Me is my favorite Skillet song, never before have the emotions from a song hit me as hard as this one

29 Eating Me Away
30 Imperfection

31 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.

32 Alien Youth

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

Love this one!

33 Battle Cry

Love this because it has the theme of war like Hero but also the way its sung makes it great to listen to.

The chorus is wonderful! Very emotional I think... Absolutely underrated!

Maybe not #1 but it deserves to be in the top ten.

#32? seriously? deserves to be pretty much higher up!

35 One Day Too Late

This is my favorite song by skillet, and I agree with quite a few other people that are commenting on this that I don't understand why this isn't int the top ten, or at least the top fifteen. I was scrolling around, looking for my favorite songs and I couldn't spot this one. I was confused for a while until I kept scrolling down and saw it way down here at number 21! Was this put on later or something? I really don't think that it should be this far down on the list...

It's a beautiful song that make us realize that live isn't for always and that on one day everyone must thing to do something good and listen to people, friend or enemy. So don't do stupid and life your live now it can.

Oh come on... This has to be at least in the top 15, seriously? This is a song I listen to every morning, it makes me want to try alittle bit harder every day and make every minute last longer. Excellent song.

36 Energy

I mean this song rocks. I can't believe that it is out 'here'. This song has enough energy to move on up!

This song is heavy best sonng of skillet

37 Famous
38 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!

39 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.

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 Dead Inside

Seriously people come on this song is awesome. It should at the very least be in the top 20. If you haven't heard it I highly suggest you go listen to it now.

Umm excuse me! This song must have been added late. This should be in comatoses spot! :(

Best song I have ever know

This deserves to be much higher

43 What I Believe

I love Jens voice in this song!

44 Saturn

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 The Resistance

My favourite song in unleashed!

This is the best Song of Unleashed, and it's the best album of theirs

This song is awesome. My favorite off the new Skillet Album. It is fast paced and has a really awesome guitar solo to end the songalbum. Favorite Skillet song.

Amazing! Can’t stop listening to it

46 Good to Be Alive

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

47 Burn It Down
48 My Religion

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 Stronger
50 Stars

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

Good song once you listen to it a few times.

It's just beautiful

How the heck is this sensationally beautiful and bottom of the heart touching song so far down the list... something must be terribly wrong with people's sense of music... everything about this song is sheer perfection from the vocals to the background beautiful! the feeling is indescribable..I felt madly in love with it the first time I heard it...
