"Skin" is a song by the American post-grunge/alternative metal band Breaking Benjamin. It was released in February 2003 as the second single from the band's debut album, Saturate. The song charted on both Billboard's Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks and Alternative Songs, peaking at No. 24 and No. 37, respectively.


In an interview with Rock Star Tribune, Ben stated:

Skin is a radio thing and it doesn't go over that great live. I mean, we play it good, but it's just the crowd, especially on a tour like this; we have to play our heaviest shit. So, it really doesn't fit in to that mix but it does well on the radio. It shows another side of what we can do.[1]

The song has been performed twice on live television. The first performance was aired March 14, 2003 on Last Call with Carson Daly[2] and the second was aired April 7, 2003 on The Late Late Show with Craig Kilborn.[3]
