Saturate track listing
"Natural Life"

"Skin" is a song by the American post-grunge/alternative metal band Breaking Benjamin. It was released as the second single from the band's 2002 debut album Saturate.


Although this song was not as successful as the previous single, "Polyamorous", "Skin" still managed to chart on both Billboard's Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks and Alternative Songs, peaking at #24 and #37, respectively.

On an interview with Rock Star Tribune, Ben stated:

Benjamin Burnley, the band's lead singer, admitted during the No Place Like Home Tour, that he disliked playing "Skin". This is because the band had planned to release "Medicate" as a single, but Hollywood Records insisted on releasing "Skin" first.

The song has been performed twice on live television. The first performance was aired March 14, 2003 on Last Call with Carson Daly[1] and the second was aired April 7, 2003 on The Late Late Show with Craig Kilborn.[2]
