This song is PAINFULLY catchy. It's great for dancing or just listening to. I will say again, this son is ridiculously catchy.

I cannot believe this is not 1st, I mean I still like scary monsters and nice spruces but this is just WAY up there, best song made by skrillex!

This song is definitely top 3 no doubt about it
BEST SONG IN THE WORLD. Can't believe someone has put kill everybody second.

You will dance spontaneously.

3 First of the Year (Equinox)

The song begins with a serene tone. As the anticipation builds, the tension rises, and just when you think the cravings for those wicked Skrillex beats may go unsatisfied, an explosive, shrill voice signals the release of the sickest beats you've ever heard. You may even find yourself reaching for your phone ready to dial for help.

Way under rated. Wow this song rocks. Listen to it and you won't stop

Good song! One of my favorites. And the clip is really canon, that clap! I like very much!

This song contains "THE ULTIMATE" screechy beats of the 21st century

4 Kill Everybody

HOW IS THIS NOT #1? This is the best song by skrillex by a long shot. I'm not saying scary monsters is a bad song, but kill everybody is a million times better. Kill everybody just has that dance factor to it. It just makes you wanna get up and move around. Scary monsters in more of just a you listen to it. This is like a pump up song and a song you hear at the club combined in one!

I hated dubestep. But then I heard 'Kill Everybody'.. It is unbelievable. I can't even explain adequately why I like it so much. Anyway... I still dislike 99% of dubestep. But a couple of tracks listed here have certainly changed my old person opinion of its possible merits "when done right! "

Best song by him in my opinion
Perfect in all ways the bass drop is amazing
And when I got my beat for xmas I couldn't wait to
Listen to it... It is amazing. Perfect in all ways

I used to love Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites, but today I heard this song and FAK, instantly this became the best Dubstep song I ever heard.

This song introduced me to Dub Step. The combination of melody, insane bass and all around catchiness proves irresistible to this day.

Fantastic song, my favorite of the Skrillex range. A must buy for everyone! The original of this is not that good although this remix is incredible. Thankyou Skrillex for making this song. In my opinion this song made dubstep the top genre.

This song is amazing. First song I ever heard by skrillex (or any dubstep at all) and now it's got me hooked. I can never get this song out of my head. You can never 'overplay' this song! Perfect!

I love this song my favorite from skrillex

6 Rock 'N' Roll (Will Take You to the Mountain)

Awesome... I believe that this is Skrillex's best song. I'm surprised this song isn't higher rated, it's awesome! It bumps too!

Bloody amazing melody and great combination of sounds best song in my opinion.

This song gives me the chills, I love it. How it seems to have 2 different bass drops is something I have never heard. Great song.

This songs beat and drop are just amazing

7 Kyoto

Ok best skrillex out there. Sirah and the mad bass in this just makes it rock! This should at least be in top three!

A really spin chilling song, its there best in my opinion it has a really sick beat to it! Great very catchy

This is in my opinion the best Skrillex song ever! The drums kick perfectly into my ears with this music. It builds up really nicely from the beginning to the drop with a cool starting melody with the guitar chords. The drop itself is devastating and also very catchy. What I also like in this piece is the melody after the first drop, nice sound effects. Sirah just totally finishes as an explosion with a good ending following it. All these factors make me like this song the most. I recommend listening it to high quality headphones, which make me drown by this bomb!

Absolutely amazing, one of my favorite songs from Skrillex! In my opinion toe to toe with first of the year (Equinox)

8 Reptile's Theme

Heavy beat consistency keeps your foot tapping or your head moving!

I LOVE this song! It should be 1st!

If you have massive speakers in your house than you should put this song on full blast and watch the speakers. You will be blown away. (literally)

Fantastic song, easily some of the best material Skrillex has produced. Definitely deserves the top spot.

F-F-F-Fight!

Everybody that likes skrillex has got to like this song. And the lyrics are clean

9 Make It Bun Dem

One of the best dubstep songs I have EVER heard! And it is even better because it is part reggae so its very slow and heavy dubstep - decorulez97

Awesomest song ever!

Got me hooked. The best reggae dubstep mashup I have ever heard. Gets me shakin my head every time I hear it.

This song is Definitely the best song to listen to either while high or just lighting up so for all my WEED SMOKERS out there this song is the best song to be jammin to with no doubt in my mind >>#1 skrillex fan! <<

WE NEED MORE SONGS LIKE THIS - weatherman419

10 Breakn' a Sweat

How has no-one added this? This is skrillex's best song! I love it how it combines the doors' 60s music such as the epic bass guitar solo and skrillex's sick bass. Definitely should be up in the top 10 at least.

This is definitely one of the best Skrillex songs I've heard. I listen to it an awful lot and it still gives me chills every time I listen to it.

Hands down Skrillex's best song, bass is heavy, melody is perfect, it incorporates rock legends, and it automatically puts me in a great mood.

Ok. I vote this 'cause every time I hear this song, I think of NFS Most Wanted 2012.

The Contenders

11 The Devil's Den

Seriously? Not even 10th place? This song has some pretty extreme beats and definitely deserves at least 10th place. I listened to Reptile's theme and I'm like "Its good, but it really doesn't deserve 7th place. 13th place is more like it.

How is this not in the top 10?
Rock n roll, Kill everybody and scary monsters and nice sprites are good also.
Thanks, everyone vote for this song!
The Devils Den!

Everyone Likes The Wrong Songs! The list Should Be

12 Right In

Come on guys! Right in is one of the best dubstep song ever. The bass its awesome so the song its amazing!

This definitely belongs in AT LEAST the top twenty. It has such a great beat to it, and the drop is perfect.

Why the #@#@ is right in not in the top ten? It is the best song by skrillex PERIOD.

THIS SONG MAKES ME SHAKE MY HEAD SO MUCH TILL IT STARTS HURTING! the jumpiest skrillex song ever!

13 In for the Kill

This is the first song that made me completely fall in love with Skrillex! After that I was definitely hooked. 'In for the Kill' is a song you should definitely listen to!

Great song, love to hear some full lyrics in a skrillex song, strong beat. Should be around number 5 though..

The vocals send me to another place inside myself. It's so tranquil and mesmerizing. All time favorite!

This and kill everybody r bye far the best!

14 Scatta

WHY IS SCATTA AT TWELVE! SCATTA SHOULD BE AT 1st OR 2nd! (man, the people here are crazy... )

Scatta should absolutely be in the top 5. The bass is too heavy and it's too great. My ovaries just can't handle it. Great song to workout to as well. Definitely top notch work.

The heavy base drop just wins it. May not be the catchiest, but it's just brilliant.

The rhythm is amazing...

15 Weekends!!!

Why is Weekends only number twenty? I love this song. All of my dubstep butties love this song to hell, too. This seriously deserves better than twenty. This song is so awesome that it will knock your socks off.

Oh jesus was this song amazing! If you liked bangarang you will love this skrillex song too.

My Favorite Skrillex song, no doubt, but I absouletely love the bassdrop on kyoto, that's what keeps me coming back to it every time I go on the computer to listen to dubstep.

I think you and your friends should make this in the top 10

16 Summit

Its an amazing song. I don't know why it's so lower on the list. It is so relaxing and always reminds you of the good times you had with your friends. The bass is great and Elie Goulding's voice is simply treat to listen.

This song is the very essence of nostalgia. Every single bit of it reminds me of 8th grade, which personally was the greatest year for me and my friends. After having left that middle school I moved and didn't see most of them ever again, so this song brings me so much comfort every time I think about the crazy shenanigans we would do, and all the fun we had. Great song, to put it ever so lightly.

I'm surprised this hasn't even been included yet. No drop, but very relaxing and makes Skrillex's material more diverse.

One of the more melodic Skrillex tracks. I put it number 1 as it makes you feel a lot more emotional than his other songs, plus I always get a sense of nostalgia when listening to it, sort of like I'm missing something I never had. - MouldyWalrus

Love ya Sonny

I totally love this song, its got very strong and fast beats

Should be top 5!

Promises is amaing!
Skrillex + Nero = one of my favorite songs

22 Levels - Avicii

Come on, the name says it all. It's the great house hit levels from avicii remixed by the best dubstep artist in the game

It's obvious that people voting here have only heard Skrillex's most popular songs and don't even know about all the other good songs he has like this one

This Should Be Damn number 1, Yes 'Scary Monsters And Nice Spirits' Is a good song, But Come on guys! Vote For Levels-Avicii!

Should have been in top 10. Sad to see it at 21

23 With You, Friends

People here need to listen to all the tracks before they vote. This song is great because Skrillex proved that a great song doesn't need a heavy bass drop to make a great song.

I don't know how this isn't in the top 3. It might not be dubstep, but it is just so beautiful! I love the emotion behind it, and if you really listen to the lyrics carefully, you will find that it's actually a song dedicated to his mother (he was adopted). A really underestimated Skrillex song, absolutely wonderful.

So beautiful especially the long drive version. It is my favorite song ever. If you listen to this you will hear what I'm talking about. Just beautiful. I LOVE IT. listen to it and I definitely suggest buying it.

Not number one but definitely top 10

26 Hey Sexy Lady

Sick song. Skrillex has done it again. I don't know where he gets all of these song ideas from but he manages to keep on making these amazing songs. Vote for this song.

The best bass drop ever. It's not very well known, but I still can't believe that it's not in the top ten!
Honestly, you won't regret listening to this one!

Just the perfect balance. I wanna hear it over and over again. I personally like this one more than others. You should all get a listen to it.

THIS is the song that got me into dubstep. The drop takes a while to come but it is awesome

28 I'mma Try It Out

This is amazing. The drop is amazing. The beat is amazing. The imma try it out voice is amazing. In fact this song ROCKS.

Song From Call of Duty Black Ops 2

How is it not even in the top ten?! It's by far the best song from Recess, and it's my second favorite Skrillex song after Bangarang. It has a great drop, followed by a long build up to the best drop ever, and then it repeats the first drop again. I can't believe it's only no. 29! And by the way it's called Try It Out not I'mma Try It Out.

Was the perfect song for Black Ops 2. It fit it so well. It is a great song that you can listen to when you are playing Call of Duty or if you are just outside playing basketball.

Catchy, and this piece is one hell of a dirty vibe. I mean -- just wow. It makes me feeling sudden urge to move ma body to the rhythm. And not many songs make me feel this way. Sure I'll listen to more of Skrillex's songs! (I've heard about Skrillex a lot back then but this is ma first time listening to his work)

Amazing, with skrillex and his Korean friends

How has no-one added this? This is skrillex's best
Song. This should at least be in
Top three!

33 Syndicate

Amazing song one of the best by skrillex in my opinion, should definitely be at the top of the list in my opinion.

Really? Only #42? This song is absolutely amazing! It should totally be in the top ten, heck, top five. The tempo and beat are both incredible!

Very Catchy and fast. A lot of detail in the music notes compared to some of his songs. I prefer it over many of his repetitive songs.

Best skrillex song ever! I have no idea what a syndicate is, but who cares, this song is a hit!

Best Skrillex Song By Far. 10/10. Should be higher in the list. This is a great remix of one of his greatest solo song. It may not sound as good as the others such as Scary Monsters or Kill Everybody. But it should still be in the top ten.

In the movie "Spring Breakers! " I loved his music in the film it was totally awesome! It made a dumb movie into a FANTASTIC one!

It's amazing mix of trapstep that blends perfectly into Skrillex's style and his flow and has to be one of the best remixes by Skrillex of all-time!
