The Top TenXW

1Use Somebody

I listen to this song everyday. Makes me want to hold her tight, never let her go. I can't believe that I let her go in the first time. I wish I could dedicate song to her. This one is for you Charlize. Your smile still haunts me.

A truly amazing song, the vocals are simply divine

I start my day wit this song! An absolute treat to listen to! I just can't stop explorin more songs f KOL!

The song makes me want to fall in love again and again! So simple yet so elegant!

2Sex On Fire

The best song as for myself even above Use Somebody

I love everything about this song. I love the music, I love the lyrics, I love the vocals, I love the instruments, I love the followill brothers, it really reaches trough your soul. < 3 the song is fabulous. ;* really, really awesome. I could listen to it all day, all night.

love it... best song I've ever heard *_____* Maybe there are other good songs too, like Use somebody or pyro but this is the most beautiful and emotional song I've ever listend to. I mean I don't totally understand what they're tryin' to say but...

This is a sick song. I don't want that closer song that nobody has heard to take over it.

3Closer

By far the best song, sends shivers down my spine, especially the delayed guitar riff at the start, beautiful song! much prefer this sort of stuff than their newer stuff (which I'm not a massive fan of)

This is a hidden gem from Only By The Night and was the first track on that great album too. Should be in the top 5 at least! Get voting!

the lyrics and this song song riff manage to break my heart! By far I believe this is their best song! more than Use somebody this song have more soul!

In my humble opinion this was their best work ever!

4Pyro

Pyro is really awesome song from K.O.L., and it hurts to see such amazing song below 5.
Just feel it! ''watch her roll, can you feel it'' ;)
Awesome song guys and gals!

SO GOD. Can't believe it is ranked this low. Really LAME. Should DEFINITELY be in the top 3, it never gets old, and its really relaxing and chilling. GREAT song.

One hell of a song! Feel the vibe which comes with it...
They play better and better with time. New song is best of rest xD

Easily one of their most meaningful songs. And holy cow is the music video emotional as heck. Great song all around.

My all time favorite song. The song has a great story, the vocals are great, and the drums are right on beat through the whole song. - Bman23

I can listen to this song on repeat for hours. The guitar riffs are so haunting and moving. Anytime I'm feeling like hell I put this on and instantly feel more at peace. I first heard it during a rough time in my life and it kept me going.

That 3-Note Harmonic Riff Is So Mind-Numbingly Brilliant... And Also... Salty Leaf... Gotta Love Milk As Well - StevenSerrao2580

Always liked the song, even more when I saw them live, so amazing!

6The Bucket

It was really difficult to choose (and this isn't probably my favorite) but I voted this because it is the highest song of the first two albums in this list and I really can't stand the fact that the top ten is formed mostly by "only by the night" songs just because it's the most popular album... please listen to the others which are so much better!

Incredible song from their best album. Really simple but effective guitar and rhythm!

Raw rock, kol at their peak. This album was in my opinion when the band found their signature sound

This will be a classic in years to come

The best! I can listen to it every day, whole day! I'm just sad cause this song doesn't have an official video, it would be awesome

This was the first song I ever heard of them and I've loved it ever since, it is really catchy and has a great beat. You can listen to this song over and over and it will never get old! Definitely deserves to be in the top 10!

Absolutely love this song! The sound, the lyrics, everything is perfect. Classic KOL sound that we all know and love with a catchy beat and mesmorising, awe-striking guitar skills. And not to mention Caleb's beautiful voice, those high notes just turn my legs to jelly and raise the hairs on the back of my neck. Such a powerful and completely brilliant song. Definitely deserves a higher ranking.

Has to be a top 10

8On Call

the bass in this song is amazing, the lyrics are powerfull and to be honest the song is just an anthym, I've never heard another song like if, not mentioned here is slow night, so long my favourate x

I don't quite understand how Radioactive and Fans can be ahead of this song... have you listened to the bass?

amazing song.
gives me chills every time I hear it.
I can hear it all day long and never get tired of it!

All time favorite Kings of Leon song, extremely powerful and relatable.

Hands down the best song Kings of Leon has to offer. Its got a fantastic riff to it that just makes you want to hear it again and again!

this song made me want to listen to kol more..

This song is by far my favourite, so powerful, fifth?! Come on guys!

Why is this song not 1st

10Notion

I totally agree, this is much more powerful than Use Somebody and the riffs Rock too!

A lot of soul, not nearly as winey as their other songs. It's much more powerful.

Musically - none of the others compare to this one.
It is not only memorable - but also has a melody line that can be hummed easily and/or sung.

Best Song by Kings of Leon by far. Not cheesy like Use Somebody. It has a good flow to it that makes you want to just play it on repeat for hours. Only Closer comes close for me. But what do I know.

11Cold Desert

Ahh, this one hurts your insides so bad, it's like a weight in your stomach. I'm talking about aching beauty! And bass.

This song is just great and should at least be top ten; it's from like their best album ever so if not top ten it should at least be 11th maybe 12th.

Cold Desert is a really meaningful song it makes my heart tingle and gives me chills to listen too in my option its probably #3 it rally is a song that caleb says he enjoys listening too and that says a lot

"I'm too young to feel this old"

12Slow Night, So Long

catchy and honestly "Use somebody" has nothing on this song. Only new k. o. l like the new material so much that they claim it's the best. Come on. seriously. - carlacastro

13Manhattan

when it starts I just get chills all over my body, sadly that when I saw them last month they didn't performed it, the lyrics, the melody everything is fantastic, hope there are others that enjoy it as I do.

This is easily KOL's best song. I think it's the greatest song ever written. It's about friends who love one another getting togeter and just enjoying life out in the Oklahoma woods. The "I like to dance all night, and summons the day" lyric says it all: Take on the day, and then live it up at night. When I'm having a stressful day I listen to this song and it puts me in the woods with my best friends, without a care in the world.

I Don't know why is this one at 26 should be at top ten Has a good feel to it

Why is this no hit?

14Charmer

Really dark and ear-catching song (if that's even a real phrase) bass and guitar work really well together

This is what I call Rock! This song makes me scream

Amazing song, that scream is awesome!

Absolutely GREAT! Love the screams!

15Crawl

So underrated! The guitar solo is classic! Can't belive it is at number 23! Suc

there is something about this song which feels divine

There's something haunting about this song... It really makes me think of an old love that didn't work out and how difficult it is to find that.

I love a song that can bring back emotions that you felf when you first heard it... even it is bitterness, cause it reminds you of a girl you loved that broke up with you via text message. - Cuthbertson7467

This song really hits me. It reminds me of my ex because he broke up with me basically because he wanted to go out and party. I see him everyday and I still catch him staring at me, so I know he regrets his decision in some way. This song is so hauntingly beautiful

To be honest they have too many great songs but I live this song, reminds me a little of what vampire weekend does. Nonetheless I put this in a mix for my friends Christmas present

18Be Somebody

AWESOME! Best all round song the boys have ever done! Every part of this song... The pitch harmonics by Matthew, the excellent drum beats by Nathan and the bassline and vocals make an amazing atmosphere.
VOTE NOW for Be Somebody!

This is my get amped for games song. It just absolutely tells a story like the one of a an athlete that needs to prove themselves to get to the next level. On a more musical note, great guitar riffs and drums throughout the song is in my top three with Notion, and Closer. In the Night is a Solid Gold album that I will remember for a long time.

It should be at #7. really amazing song
