Christian rock band Skillet was founded in 1996. Its line-up has constantly changed, and to date, the only one from the original band has remained vocalist and bass guitarist John Cooper. He is currently joined by his wife Corey (backing vocals, rhythm guitar, keyboards), Seth Morrison (lead guitar), and Jen Ledger (vocals, drums).
The band's musical style has also changed. Skillet's early songs were post — grunge, then there was a trend towards industrial metal, and the last four albums are a cool collection of alternative rock. The popularity of the band began to grow rapidly after 2000: numerous tours, music awards, and an increasing army of fans. The musicians have found their niche in rock music and have already released 10 albums.
