Openings: Sometimes can make or break your desire to hear the entire Skillet has plenty of fantastic openings but we've managed to narrow them down to just Ten, so if your favorite one isn't on here then SORRY. So here we go
10.Alien Youth-Kinda unusual but there's no denying that it's one of the most recognizable openings in Skillet's library. Complete with a rocking guitar riff and a phrase that has been solidified with Skillet's legacy.
9.Awake and Alive- A kick butt violin, cello and guitar solo help make Awake and Alive one of the greatest Skillet songs of all time. But the thing that keeps it from being higher on the list is the fact that it had to be shortened to make it sound more rockish in order to be played on rock radio
8.Dead Inside- It's a shame that this song hasn't been played live because it would've sounded great. The guitar is phenomenal it really is a great example of Ben Kasica's talent.
7.Monster- A heavy rock riff that instantly recognized among both Skillet fans and rock n roll fans even if you don't know who Skillet is you know this song.
6.Sometimes- A slightly better riff than Monster Sometimes would be as popular as Monster if not more if had been released as a single I call Sometimes the twin sister of Monster since they both have the same message.
5.Better Than Drugs-Christian Rock at it's finest. At concerts last year John used this song's opening to get fans pumped up by telling them to JUMP!,JUMP!, JUMP!
4..Comatose-An opening that sends chills down your spine, Comatose can be described as Skillet's signature sound. As I said before there's a reason Skillet's most successful album was called Comatose and not Rebirthing
3. Falling Inside the Black- An opening that sends chills down your spine and pumps you up from the inside and out. Skillet I think I speak for everyone at Skillet.com when I said please play this song live!!!!
2.Hero-Much like Monster an opening than EVERYONE recognizes instantly and gets every person out of their seat at concerts complete with one of the best guitar riffs in the history of music and with great pyro at concerts Hero was a no brainer for this list and without a doubt deserves a spot this high
1.Whispers in the Dark-Think about it when you go out to concerts and you hear the violin version of Whisper's opening your heart starts pumping and you get excited knowing the extravaganza is about to start.
