The Top Ten

Rock 'n Roll All Nite
rock & roll all nite is the best ever
everyone knows this song, Kiss doesn't suck, best show ever they can still rock!


Rock and roll all night is the best song ever made better then beth kiss rocks
[Newest]Am I the only person in the 9th grade who thinks kiss are the greatest rock band of all time?

2I Was Made for Lovin' You
it includes what a perfect rock song must have:
lyrics about love
a refrain you can sing out loud
excellent guitar work
a voice you like listening to
and the perfect mix of instruments and vocals (y)
The lyrics, the guitaring, the music, the stage perfomance, everything is just awesome! Der is no margin for error in this song! This must be the song of the century!
Very underrated band of all time. They have memorable songs that stand the test of time.
To thrive and to still be hugely relevant in the music business for almost 40 years is pretty much unheard of. Yet Rolling Stone has barely acknowledged their existence, and they are still not in the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame after a decade of being eligible. As far as my favorite song concerned its a tie between I was made for loving u and detroit city.


[Newest]Holly for the win

3Detroit Rock City
Best KISS song by far, no debate.

I can't understand why it isn't first on the list. Good tunes, good lyrics, overall best song of their career.
Best kiss song, I listen to this at least three times a day still great chorus, beat and some brilliant drumming
AwesoME SoNg!
Wow.. ! Stunned by what is done in the son!
Oh my goodness!
[Newest]Has to be one of my favorites!

4Love Gun
Find out what it means, lolz


Great song! Gene Simons is taking it out on his guitar, and Paul Stanley has a great voice. The Love Gun shot me when I heard this song!
Gene doesn't play the guitar on love gun he doesn't even play the bass it's Paul and of course it's Ace playing lead
you can't forget this baby... don't try to lie!


[Newest]This song is amazing - has the best riff ever. Also - Paul Stanley has said that this is his favourite KISS song of all time!

Even though this is a great hit it shouldn't be in the top ten. The top ten should be something like

I was made for loving you
Detroit rock city
I love it loud
Rock and roll all nite
Love gun
Shout it out loud
Sure know something
Black diamond
Lick it up
When I was young we would party to kiss music and this always quieted the room

Also we would all laugh that every guy in the room would be singing along with the song

Try it after the guys have had a few beers play this song and see who sings along with it
Nice melodies.. With a little humor at the end..
Simply love it.. Lolz
[Newest]I just love this song Beth


This song deserves to be number one. It is my personal favorite and its just so badass! The people that made this are full of it because if hotter than hell isn't one of the ten best kiss songs then I'm not a kiss fan!
Good song but their are so many songs that should be higher where's she's so European what happened to sure no something and wear on earth is shandi
I think Strutter must be number 1
[Newest]Always loved this one

I really love this song. Wish there would be more of this kind.
Luv Gun and this are the #1!... but Forever is the #1 Romantic


its has probably the best solo in the world :)
[Newest]Though it's a love song, it is by far the best rock and roll love song ever and is the best song written by KISS.

8Crazy Crazy Nights
My favourite song! I can't belive it isn't higher, but it a Kiss song anyway so it alright. We all love Kiss! If you love Kiss you shouldn't fight about what song is the best!
My favourite KISS song, and the most popular here in the UK, Paul's vocals are great in it, and the tune is amazing as well!
This song may be repetitive, but is nice anyway!


[Newest]Best song in the world

9God of Thunder
I love everything about this song, the lyrics really got me hooked. Gene's vocals just add something special to this one.
Simply their best heavy metal
My favorite kiss song so far.


[Newest]LOVE THIS SONG! Best sing on Destroyer.

10God Gave Rock 'n Roll to You
How is this song not rated higher in the list? This is the kind of song I'd love to listen to when I finished myself a long journey feeling victorious and all. I love how the band shows how much they love what they accomplished by saying that God gave it to them, and that is grand! The guitar riffs are just awesome and easy to sing along that it gives you a state of peace! This is one of the best songs I've ever heard and believe I will never get tired of it. Always reminds me of how much I've gotten from God.
This song is amazing and the melody and vocals are just perfect. I have no idea how this is only ninth on the list. The key change just finishes of this song the best way possible.
I would give all my money to be able to see this song performed live. I think this is getting it pretty tough being only in ninth place...
Everybody should vote this song up. Best vocals of any Kiss song.
[Newest]This has to be my favorite because it's just an anthem. I feel moved after hearing it every time.

The Contenders

11Black Diamond
Great Song! It starts off slow and builds to maximum intensity eventually bringing it around to a stop. You think the song is over and then it tricks you and starts rocking your face off again. Love it Love it
This song is so amazing... The best way to listen to it is LIVE! But overall a fantastic song. 1,2,3... HIT IT!

Out on the street for a livin...
My favourite song aside from she... People really need to give peter criss the credit he deserved, drum wise and vocal wise
[Newest]It's my first to hear this and love it on the spot! Damn nice!

12Heaven's On Fire
The Best song ever And yes I could feel the heat taking me burn with me and Heavens on fire


This song is purely what personifies kiss. Not only because they are the only one's who can get away with singing this song but it also shows their character when up on stage partying and having a great time.
Heaven's on fire should be in the top 5
[Newest]Our third favorite kiss song. Should be in top 5.

13Lick It Up
It should be higher seriously it has a very catchy chorus and is a great song, rocknroll all night is just the same stuff all over again, doesn't have solos or nothin.
Can't believe this isn't in the top ten! This is one of the best rock songs ever, just gets you up and dancing! What a pumping song!
Definitely a song that should be higher in this list. Very well composed, lots of guitar within the verses, which also have rhyming words, with a catchy chorus, & rock n roll throughout the entire song. It's pure genius... from who else but... KISS. It's not a crime to be good to yourself!
[Newest]Definitely their best song. Vinnie Vincent does very well on guitar on this song, even though he's not as good as Ace. Still, though, great pump-up song.


14Shout It Out Loud
Wow, really guys? This HAS to be top 5. Come on, vote it up. Lick it up needs to move up also.
Both Paul and Gene sing lead on this get-up-and-rock song. How is it not in the top FIVE!
Great anthem and very

Catchy riff
[Newest]Get this at a least six!

15I Love It Loud
Eric Carr's Drums Alone Make This Song Brilliant
Loud! I wanna hear it loud!
Very Heavy...
One of the greatest gene simmons Solos
Ever one of best eric carr's drum solo

Hello! How is this song not in the top 3. Calling real KISS fans everywhere, get this song to number 1!
A very hard yet classic rock song do to its simple but catchy riffs solo and fast beat. Though it is one of the bands oldest songs it still remains one of the best.
Easily the second best KISS song ever. Ridiculous that it's listed this low.
[Newest]Great song to start the kiss concert!

17Cold Gin
Why didn't anyone vote for this song it rocks. Rock and Roll All Nite is the most overplayed overrated song of all time. Cold gin is just so awesome
Great song - written by Ace - my favorite song that Gene sings lead on. Ace's riff has been copied a few times (Buckcherry- Lit Up)
Cold Gin should be top 5 for sure. I am amazed at all of the songs after Dynasty. Some good songs for sure but not classic Kiss.

18Calling Dr. Love
Best kiss tone, along with detroit rock city, god of thunder, love guns, war machine, creatures of the night, I love it loud
I don't think this song gets the love it deserves. 17 is just too low.
Another fave of mine!

19I've Had Enough (Into The Fire)
This song has it all, including a guitarist who only appeared on one album. Despite the chaos at the time, could be their finest effort... Ever.

20We Are One
An amazing song! Very special

21War Machine
Learned how to play bass on this song!
Beat me if you can, Survive if I let you.

22Creatures of The Night
I love this song! The beat is awesome! Gene simmons was loud and raw vocals and KISS was true metal on this one better than god of thunder and detroit rock city.
Pauls sings not gene... Great dark paul song

This is a song that only Gene Simmons could sing. And it is perfect when sang live. This is a dark creepy and sinful song that Gene personifies.
This song reflects the best unmasked generation

24Say Yeah
Anthemic tune that trumps Rock and Roll All Nite. Really catchy tune.

Parasite is the hardest hard rock KISS song. The song is back boned by a heavy fast riff. ACE does a great job with the solo. It is an old KISS classic.
One of my fave Ace songs! Ace shoulda sang it!
Great beat, graet guitar, way to go Ace.

26Shock Me
Ace is the best singer Kiss ever had, he maybe can't take those higest tones but there is something whith his voice that just make it amazing.


My personal favourite Kiss song, but admittedly not number 1. I say Rock and roll all nite has to win this-no question. Also, bring do: I was made for lovin' you- not even in the top 50 Kiss songs!
Just love Ace and his voice is so unique, so cool.
[Newest]This should be at least in top 20!

27Sure Know Something
Talk about an underrated song? I think that Sure Know Something should easily be top 10, if not top 5, Gene's bass in this is elite, and Paul Stanley's voice is just amazing. I think that this song and Shandi definitely deserves to be in the top 10 because they are underrated and legendary!
This is one of the best songs that I listened ever.. It has all
This is really a top 10 quality song and needs to go higher
[Newest]I love this song

28Seduction of the Innocent
Such a rough yet plaintive song, with a hard dirty baseline. Definitely (one of) the best songs. Bit more complex than their other more popular ones that have simple-yet-catchy appeal, this one's darker. Incredibly stirring song.

29New York Groove
This is NOT a KISS song! It's a Russ Ballard song that Ace covered on the solo lp. Really catchy & should be on the radio today!

30Psycho Circus
This song was among the last to feature Ace and Peter, which makes it even more awesome. This song has great guitar and the instruments are all amazing in this song. Kiss is among the great's of rock and this song really shows that Kiss are Rock Gods!


I LOVE this song with a passion. It is a high energetic song with an amazing guitar solo and spooky yet lively feeling to it that can't be beat.
Probably their most energetic song!
[Newest]Probably their best song post-reunion.

31Journey of 1,000 Years
Really underrated song! This song feels so different then the rest of their songs, it makes you feel really alive

32Hotter Than Hell
Perfect in every way! In my top 5!

33Talk to Me
Ace isn't the best singer, but he is pretty good in this song. Same with "Shock Me".

34Do You Love Me
Damn Good Song One of there Bests and one of my Favourites!

Do You Love Me KISS ARMY


Really good--one of my fave "Paul" songs

35Hard Luck Woman
Well I must be stupid but this is a great song. Best song written by a Kiss member. It shows that Peter Criss did, indeed, have talent.
You're not stupid. But apparently everybody else who voted on this list is.

What?! No ways! This is one of their best songs ever!
Love it! Great drumming!

37God Gave Rock 'n' Roll to You II
a great dedication song to Eric Carr
This song is off the hook
Why does Paul hafta sing like a teenage girl!

38Great Expectations
This song is way better then hate go down to see hate and lisen to it you will not like it
More I listen to it- more I like it!
Way ahead of it's time!

39King of the Mountain

40Take It Off
I love this tune. Classic Kiss.

41Hide Your Heart
Ace did it even better on his "trouble walkin'" lp even though he goofed a couple of lyrics laugh out loud
"underrated but still awesome, one of my favorite songs of theirs from an often overlooked album".


43Christine Sixteen
This HAS to be higher up on the list! The chorus sticks in your head all day!

44I Stole Your Love
This opens one of the greatest KISS albums of all time and does it with balls! This is one of the best songs and should be in the top 5 even. This is by far one of the best songs ever done by KISS.
This should be in the to 20 case closed one of their best tunes
Awesome song all together

45Goin' Blind

46Magic Touch
Always thought this was a good song. Sounds cheesy now! Laugh out loud

47Comin' Home
I like this song! Cool!

48The Oath
Off an underrated album, this song shines like no other on the album. From The Elder, it gets no better than The Oath. "I" is also solid from the album, and so is "Only You". Other favorites from KISS include Magic Touch, X-Ray eyes and Naked City.

49100,000 Years
Listen to the Drum Solo on Alive


I love all these songs. However my most favorite song ever is 100,000 years. I LOVE KISS!


This song is from beginning to end great, you can't sit with this song

50Tears are Falling
I been religiously listening to Kiss since 1988 when Smashes, Thrashes and Hits came out and let me tell ya although I'm a die hard metal fan nothing hits me like this one, quite honestly maybe my favorite song of all time right now and deserves the respect of being #1 on this list. Listen people don't vote for popularity, vote for quality and substance.
This song is better than any other song prior to it. Listen just because it's on the radio doesn't always necessarily mean that a song is good, people should pay attention to lesser known songs instead of the same dribble you hear over and over again on the radio.
This song is sad but it's also a classic and I love it. This is by far my favorite song by kiss. It deserves a lot more credit. The music video isn't bad either.

51Modern Day Delilah
This song shows that KISS can still write at top ten song. They may be old. They may not be the original band. But doing what was best and replacing two members of the band makes the new KISS just as dominant as the old KISS minus Paul's withered voice. But listening to this song shows that Paul can still sing good minus the younger flavor that he used to have.
I love modern day delilah it's my all time favorite how the hell can you put it in number 46 are you mad your a complete idiot with no brain get a life you little idiot you need to listen mre in rock school! How can you put beth in top 10 and modern day delilah in number 46 jeasus me and 1 other guy woted for modern day delilah and that other guy is awesome better than you mate.
This is such a great song, it deserves to be in the top 10 in my opinion

Probably the best song on that album!

53Thrills In the Night

Their best song w/o a doubt! My all time fave!
Then Hard Luck Woman... Gotta see the video where Paul & Ace play each other's guitar, while strumming @ the same time!

55Raise Your Glasses
I'm a old school Kiss purist, but this song is awesome!


No--it's pure crap! Gimme a break

It sounds just like "I'm Eighteen" which is why Alice Cooper sued them!

57King of the Night Time World
Heard this song on The Paul Lynde Halloween Special, which made me go out & buy the album!

Best KISS song ever. Never got the radio airtime that it deserved. Beats out Detroit Rock City and Rock and Roll all night... Hands downs!
The best KISS song from the mid 90s.. Deserves more radio play. This is THE unappreciated KISS song of all time.
another classic from the 80s

59Turn On the Night

60Nowhere to Run
This song was the gateway to creatures...
Another GREAT song by Kiss! Love it!

61I Still Love You
Awesome slow song that still has a powerful feel to it.
Pretty good song that's about his breakup w/ Donna Dixon! & then she married Dan Ackroyd!

One of the Kiss songs ever. BRUCE is at his best. Love this song. One of my top ten

63Nothin' to Lose
Great party song. Best song about anal sex! Haha

64Reason to Live
Underrated it is a great tune

65Trial by Fire

66Yes I Know (Nobody's Perfect)

67No No No
A very very underrated song. Maybe the fastest, heaviest and most powerful song kiss ever made. It also has the best guitar lines, specially that amazing intro that can be considered as the best solo Bruce ever composed. Eric on the drums is just so great as well. The band should have include this piece in more tours and ought to play it nowdays
This song is amazing! It should be at least in the top 30. I just don't understand why is so low specially when you realize that it contains the best guitar solo
Yeah! I had forgotten this one... Exellent solo, one of the bests

68Under the Rose

69C'mon and Love Me
Why isn't this one higher?

70Rock Bottom
Are you serious I know it's not there creates but, come,
On at least top 20 not down here
The version on Dressed to Kill is killer!
One of my faves!

71Let Me Go, Rock & Roll
Awesome. At first I didn't like it but came to be one of my faves

72I Want You
The best hard rocking' Kiss song by far. Great guitar riff and great solo! Catchy vocals that are fantastic every time played live. One of the best songs on Alive 2
This song reminds me the most beautiful moments of my life. So it's just my opinion but, this should be in top ten!
One of the heaviest Kiss riffs ever. Great hard rock song, even better live plus an amazing guitar solo.
[Newest]Is the great song,

I never understood why The Elder is considered to be their weakest album. ItÂ's full of great songs and this is one of it. If The Elder wouldnÂ't have been recorded by KISS but by some other band instead, I think it would be treasured the way it deserves. Just a boy, Under the Rose, Only you. Great.
Dark Light is the best one on The Elder!

74Master & Slave

one of their more uncredited songs
Yeh, I think this is a cool song

Was I missing shandi on the list? It could've happened but I think it should be higher on the list. I am a HUGE KISS fan and don't have a favorite song but a lot of songs should be higher like talk to me, reason to live, firehouse, heavens on fire, forever, gad gave rock n roll to you, hide your heart, take me, I just wanna, hate, I want you, and where is all hells breakin loose? Maybe I missed that too. The songs to me are WAY out of order.
I reckon shandi should be number one love it roland
It's a decent song... Better than today's crap!

77Uh! All Night
Definitely their most underrated song!

78Who Wants to Be Lonely

79Almost Human

80I'll Fight Hell to Hold You

81Mr. Blackwell

82All Hell's Breakin' Loose

83Rocket Ride
Come on grab a hold of my rocket!
Killer solo---reminds me of my roller skating days back in the day.

84Love Her All I Can

85Strange Ways
heavy with street cred lyrics by ace and aces awesome I think best solo

86Plaster Caster
Really good song, give yourself the chance to hear it


88Just a Boy

89Mr. Speed
Another classic hit from the "Rock and Roll All Over" album! The guitar intro of this song is rocking'! True Kiss fans sure missed the boat by not putting this one on the list. A sure top 25 Kiss hit, why don't you listen to some Kiss albums!
I Really like this song, its very catchy...
One of my faves! Rock and Roll Over is their 2nd best Lp, KISS (1st lp) is hands down #1!

90All for the Love of Rock & Roll
Great song off the nex album. Eric singer has a great voice


92Sweet Pain

93(You Make Me) Rock Hard

94Hell or Hallelujah
The lead single from their newest album and its amazing!

952000 Man
Awesome cover of the Rolling Stones song. Ace rocks on this one. Ace definitely had his best songs on Dynasty"

96Tough Love


98Rock and Roll Hell
I love this song. "Get me out of the rock and roll hell"

99Lets Put the X In Sex

100You Love Me to Hate You
