About Skillet

One of the best-selling rock bands of the 21st century, two-time Grammy Award-nominated, Pandora Billionaires Club recipients, multi-Platinum Wisconsin quartet Skillet (John Cooper, lead vocals/bass; Korey Cooper, guitar/keys; Jen Ledger, drums/vocals; and Seth Morrison, lead guitar) writes the soundtrack to triumph.

An undying spirit humbly asserted and affirmed the band as one of this generation’s most successful rock acts. However, as all classic underdog stories do, it happened quietly under the radar. By 2019, the band not only garnered a pair of Grammy nods and sold over 12 million albums worldwide, but it also took home a Billboard Music Award for the double-Platinum “Awake.”

Skillet’s breakout single “Monster” remains one of the most-streamed rock songs of all-time with 285 million global audio streams. 2016’s “Unleashed” bowed at No. 3 on the Billboard Top 200. Going No. 1 on rock radio, the lead single “Feel Invincible” cracked 150 million global audio streams and went Platinum. Meanwhile, the Gold-certified “Unleashed” became their fourth consecutive album to receive either a Gold, Platinum or double-Platinum status.
