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.


It Sounds Like The Wiggles Movie

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!
Best KISS song... Period!

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!
you can't forget this baby... don't try to lie!


More comments about Love GunListen to sample

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
Nice melodies.. With a little humor at the end..
Simply love it.. Lolz
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

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
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 :)

8God 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.


LOVE THIS SONG! Best sing on Destroyer.

9Black 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

10Crazy 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!

The Contenders

11God 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.
One of the Worst KISS songs! Paul & Gene worship $$ not God! Cheesy & Paul sings like a girl! Sucks big time!

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

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!

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.
Great anthem and very

Catchy riff
Definitely a top 10 Kiss tune. epic!

15I Love It Loud
Eric Carr's Drums Alone Make This Song Brilliant
Amazing Song
One Of The Heaviest Kiss Songs To Date With The Greatest Drummer Eric Carr On (Lukejordan21)
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.
Great song to start the kiss concert!
More comments about DeuceListen to sample

17Calling 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!
Listen to sample

18Cold 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
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.
Ace's best as a songwriter! Man this song rocks!

19We Are One
An amazing song! Very special

20War Machine
Learned how to play bass on this song!
Beat me if you can, Survive if I let you.

21Creatures 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
Listen to sample

22Say 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.
Listen to sample

24Shock 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.

25I'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.
Listen to sample

26Psycho 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!
Very good song and cool music video
More comments about Psycho CircusListen to sample

27Seduction 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.
Listen to sample

28New 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!
Listen to sample

29Hotter Than Hell
Perfect in every way! In my top 5!
Listen to sample

30Journey of 1,000 Years
Really underrated song! This song feels so different then the rest of their songs, it makes you feel really alive
Listen to sample

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
Listen to sample

32Sure 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

Love it! Great drumming!

38Hard 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.
My #2 Fave! Written by Paul & sung by Peter!
Listen to sample

39Rain Listen to sample

40I 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

44The 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.

45100,000 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

46Modern 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

47Raise Your Glasses
I'm a old school Kiss purist, but this song is awesome!


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

Probably the best song on that album!

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

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.
I feel this track demonstrates Stanley's versatile vocals being sultry and seductive with guitar vigor that coats lyrics theme.

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!

The version on Dressed to Kill is killer!
One of my faves!
Listen to sample

59No 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

60Let Me Go, Rock & Roll
Awesome. At first I didn't like it but came to be one of my faves
Listen to sample

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!

64I 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.

Definitely their most underrated song!
Listen to sample

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

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!

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!

92Take Me
So many KISS songs are way down here. I don't have a favorite KISS song but most of my favorites aren't in the top ten. Only seven of them. A lot of good ones aren't even on the list. Its sad. Beth was the first actual non nursery rhyme song she sang. Mine was voodoo.
How is this not in the top 25 songs list? There are so many songs on this list I have to seriously question! This is truly not a die hard Kiss fan's list of top songs for sure!
Great song to make out to! ;-)
The whole album reeks of sex!

93Ladies Room
The Alive II version kicks ass. Sums up Kiss at their peak. Gene pulls off tracks like this at least twice an album. Too many great Kiss songs...
Really awesome song... You have 2 hear it at least once to really appreciate the band... One of the best...
