I haven't done this in a long time, so here goes nothing. Going to do things a little differently. Going to put the link in the album name and send you to my MixPod Music Playlist. And guess what? It's lyrics(for most of them)!!! So you can sing along if you want.

Skillet

Skillet is an American Christian rock band originally formed in Memphis, Tennessee. The band consists of John Cooper (lead vocalist, bassist), his wife Korey Cooper (rhythm guitarist, keyboardist, vocalist), Ben Kasica (lead guitarist), and Jen Ledger (drummer, vocalist). Skillet has released eight albums, two receiving Grammy nominations: Collide and Comatose. Over the past 15 years, Skillet has spanned many different genres, including hard rock, industrial rock, and symphonic rock. As of March 2010 they have sold 1.6 million albums worldwide.

The project follows Skillet’s 2004 Lava/Atlantic debut, Collide, which launched the group into the public eye with the single “Savior” (the #2 most added at CMJ’s “Loud Rock and Crucial Spins” panel the first week out), and garnered the quartet a prestigious Grammy Award nomination. Collide went on to become their third best-selling project to date, with over 200,000 units sold, while the band played some 200 dates a year - including tours with the likes of Saliva, Shinedown, Finger Eleven, Three Days Grace and Breaking Benjamin - in the process becoming one of the most recognized bands in modern secular rock.

Skillet’s musical style is hard rock, symphonic rock and occasional power ballads. The band formed in Memphis Tennessee in 1996 with three worship band members. The name ‘Skillet’ was chosen, as lead singer John Cooper said, because it was ‘a mix of different styles of rock music coming together.’ Cooper said the name originally was a joke, and to this day he still isn’t fond of it. Cooper formed the band with Trey McClurkin (drums), and Ken Steorts (guitar).
