Top 10 Best Relient K Songs

The top 10 best songs by the Christian Alternative Rock band we all know and love, Relient K!
The Top Ten
1 Be My Escape

Great song. I'm a Christian but I usually am not fond of Christian songs, so, as you can imagine, I was hesitant to try out this new band A friend had recommended to me. But I was pleasantly surprised. I love this band and this is my favorite song they have. I love how the lyrics in their songs can be seen as talking about God or just a normal situation in life. Great music, lyrics, beat, ideas and stories, everything. I'll never get tired of this band or this song.

I love this song, but I wish that they had added Sadie Hawkins Dance! I love both songs, but I probably like SHD more than this one. Well, really, I like all of the Relient K songs on this list.

2 Deathbed

This may not be one of their most upbeat songs, but I will argue that it is without question their most powerful piece. I still remember crying after listening to this song for the first time and it still makes me tear up a bit. But even as sad as the story of the character presented is, it still leaves a message of hope and a better future.

In short, this is a truly uplifting yet tragically beautiful piece that certainly deserves a lot more recognition.

Really?! It's this far down? This is one of the best pieces of writing of all time! Theissen sat down and wrote a completely original and beautiful piece of art in which he describes the life of a man that never happened. I defy even the best of song writers to come up with such an in depth story of victory. Not only is it a creative masterpiece, but it is one of the best stories of finding victory despite a lifetime of failure, which is the true beauty of the grace of Jesus Christ.

3 Who I Am Hates Who I've Been

I love this song. It's great for when you are sad, and very famous also. It has an awesome music video!

Great message yet great music. It's energetic and fun.

4 Devastation and Reform

Another great song by Relient K. The drums + guitar solo intro sets the tone perfectly for the song, and I love the kind of muffled tone Thiessen sings in towards the beginning. The transition from that to normal singing, the note range, and all the different parts of the song just make this a really great listen. I love the part when it slows down "thank you God, for giving me the insight, so I might make these wrongs right," and then it picks back up and gets faster and crazier than it was even in the beginning of the song. Just a great song. Glad it's this high on the list.

5 Candlelight

This is their overall BEST song in my opinion. I have to disagree with the placement on the list for this one, even though it has a high position, this song is better than Be My Escape and Who I Am Hates Who I've Been for sure, and the other songs as well. Really great song, the lyrics are just so catchy and fun to sing along with. It's a great, great song.

Candlelight is basically a guys song dedicated to a girl who he finds to be truly magnificent. To me this is one of Relient K's top ten songs. It also makes a great Valentines day song

6 Must Have Done Something Right

This song are one of those songs that make you say, " oh my gosh this sounds familiar! ' even if youve never heard it this is one of my most favorite songs from them, I love it

This is literally the most adorable song I have ever heard. It makes me sad that it's this far down on the list!

"We should get jerseys, 'cause we make a good team. " Cheesy, but incredibly catchy and adorable!

7 Jefferson Aero Plane

This is such an underrated song, yet a catchy song. I know this doesn't deserve to be in top 10, but it deserves to be in one of the best Relient K songs. This song gives out a unique vibe of calmness and joy. The lyrics also has meaning, which is now what Relient K does to their music compared to their albums before Two Lefts Don't Make A Right...But Three Do. Overall, this song is relaxing to listen to when travelling or at home in the morning.

8 This is the End

I read an online rumor that this song was written about Katy Perry back when she and Thiessen first knew each other. Anyone able to verify this?

Love this song so much. This and "(If You Want It)" are a great pair together, and the lyrics + the melody gives me goosebumps every time. Such a great song, should be higher up on the list.

9 Which to Bury; Us or the Hatchet

An energizing song. Full of emotion. The chorus was amazing. The way the he sang it was just so right. One of their best, no doubt. It should be at least higher on the list.

Look up the acoustic version of this song. I believe that it is by far their best song. Also curl up and die should be in the top ten. The song is so deep.

I love this song! The way he wants his message to go across is just so amazing! Definitely one of my favorite songs by relient K.

10 Pressing On

So there are those songs that run in your head all day and you hate them after two days. This song has been in my head for nearly two years and I cannot get enough of it. I just can't press past this song

Man, this must be the most popular song. This song has been on a couple of shows. Plus the acoustic version is killer.

"Can I get some water? "
"It's not in the budget."
Story of my life.

The Contenders
11 Faking My Own Suicide

Underrated song. It's about a guy who wants to fake his own suicide to make his girlfriend realise how much she really loved him. Unique, fresh, and pleasing to hear!

I'm not sure if it is talking about a girl or not, but the first time I hear this I thought it was talking about Jesus. Either way it's an amazing song!

This song has a touching story and is much more than the average love song. It should be top five at least.

12 Forget and Not Slow Down

Lyrically and musically, their best song. It's one of the most original songs ever written, and the "I could spend my life just trying to sift through, what I could have done better but what good do what ifs do? " is maybe the most wisdom ever put into 2 lines. Cheers, RK.

This is my absolute favorite song by Relient K, and although some other songs are contenders, this one is filled with the musical flow, the ridiculous vocal range, and the impactful and pensive lyrics that led me to love every inch of this band.

13 Trademark

It's my, my trademark move
To turn my back on you
It's my, my trademark move
To realize I should improve

Enough said. Awesome song.

14 Give Until There's Nothing Left
15 When I Go Down

I could fall asleep to this song. Matt has an amazing voice and this song really shows it off. Definitely there best chill song.

It's very good song that gonna make you feel realize that you are sad but then your gonna feel better at the last...

16 Let It All Out

This is a beautiful song Its like a prayer. I used to listen to it instead of sleeping..I loved this song that much. Must be higher in this list. "I celebrate the day" is another beautiful song that should be higher.

17 Sadie Hawkins Dance

Great song. Upbeat and has a pretty entertaining story that's told through out the song.

Surprised this is #18. Really? This is one of their classic/signature songs. Top 10 definitely.

So classic, an amazing. One of my favourite songs in the world (Other Relient k songs running up)

18 Savannah

How is this not number 1?! This song has everything, great guitar riffs, great lyrics, catchy chorus, and not to mention the whole version of the song is 3 parts, one being a capella.

The only reason this isn't in the top ten is people just don't know about it. It's so beautiful, one of my all time favorite songs.

Other than Deathbed, this is my favourite song of all time. Combined with Oasis and Baby, it creates a sad, but lovely dream.

19 The Best Thing

Finishing the list off on a light mood... "This is the best thing, the best thing that could be happening, and I think you would agree the best thing is that it's happening to you and me! "

This song is the Best Thing that ever happened to Relient K! Definitely should be in the top ten instead of Devestation and Reform.

20 Forgiven

This is the first song I remember hearing. It is beautiful, rhythmic, and I just love it. I'm surprised it's not higher. It's upbeat, fast at times, and one of my favorites.

I cannot believe this song was ranked 17!?

21 My Girl's Ex-Boyfriend
22 Bite My Tongue

This song portrays a great message about letting God take control and just learning to shut your mouth, stop messing things up even more, and listen and follow his word. It's also super catchy and I find myself humming it in the hallways everyday!

Such a good song! This and Deathbed.

This song is amazing!
Love it 2 bits

23 More Than Useless

This was the first relient k song I heard and got me into the band. I really just like relient k a lot because I tend to get really sad sometimes. Thanks relient k

The first song I've ever heard from them, and it will forever be my favorite of favorites. it makes me happy.

24 In Love with the 80's (Pink Tux to the Prom)
25 I So Hate Consequences

I love the message, and it also has a really good, get-up-and-dance part as well as a slower but in the song.

This is a really good song, and I think it should at least get in the top ten.

This is is what got me hooked on Relient K, I love this song and band so much, it is so relatable and if you have not heard this I highly suggest you listen to this song I personally guarantee that you will at a bare minimun like this song
