Top 10 Best Dokken SongsGreat band, great songs, and excellent musicians too led by the awesome George Lynch on Guitar!
Jeff Pilson and Wild Mick Brown were a great rhythm section also.
The Top Ten
The best song from the best album. Insane riffs and vocals.
Kiss of Death is a very good song, probably their most metal song as well. I wish this band wasn't so unknown though; they really are pretty good and worth listening to. I think you'll find that at least some of their songs are worth listening to again. - Element119
Killer Guitar Part, amazing vocals. Gets the blood flowing!
How is this #1 and Prisoner nit even on the list? Hello... McFly?
This is Dokken's #1 song. The melodic singing and harmonies, killer guitar riffs, hooks, it has it all. The song got a lot of airplay on MTV back in '86-'87. The video is quite memorable even if you weren't a metal fan.
This song should be number 1 I mean the guitar solo alone really is the best solo in any dokken song!
Dokken at their best!
Starts off with a instant classic harmony chorus and then it breaks into the great George Lynch's crunching guitar.4 Comments
Probably their best song and definitely their most popular. I'm surprised that breaking the chains is at number four
By FAR the best track of Dokken! :D7 Comments
Its just so heavy and agressive! Awakens the destroyer in yourself. Awesome song!
Fast and has an accelerating feel to it. - Element119
I absolutely love this song. One of my very favorite songs from one of my very favorite bands.
That extended intro is fantastic. If there is one thing Dokken do well, it's opening an album.
Hard rocking song that really shows off George Lynch's talent on guitar.
Super song, I love it, super guitar solos, and the voice is excellent.
Great tune and chord progression, atmosphere...love it from first listening
I love dokken so much when I heard this song I fell in love with this song its very catchy and I love the music video and I fell in love with the band to so go dokken - rocknrollhorselover

The chorus is so good it gives me chills
Best song for this group
Reminds me of my mistress
Into the Fire, I'm falling!
Really great song!
Dokkens most KICKIN' song. Love the high vocal notes and Don Dokkens signature sound! My personal favorite Guitar solos!
Most of this song is good. The only issue I have with it is that the ending gets a little boring. - Element119
Best dokken song ever. The riff kicks ass
One of George Lynch's guitar riffs EVER!2 Comments
Sang to my girlfriend now my Wife of 30+ years! Best Dokken Song of all time.
One of the best classic metal ballads wrote. I still remember singing the lyrics to my ex-girlfriend 2 years ago.
I've heard all of the songs above, this song is better than 90 percent of them.5 Comments
This song is so underrated! Great riff, great solo; this song shows exactly what Dokken is all about!
Should be top 5.
Great song, great vocals, very catchy, and memorable hook.
Great rhythm guitar in this one - Shake_n_Bake13
This is one of those songs that is good on record, but 10 times better live!
Excellent hook to this song, one of their best!
A smokin rocker. Excellent vocals, great guitar by Lynch as always!
SHOULD BE #1
I honestly think this song holds George Lynch's best solo and I also feel its one of the best solos in metal!
Classic guitar intro, strong vocals, just a killer tune!
Hands down number 11 Comment
Adding this because it is a very good song, this is probably the Dokken song I most often listen to. - Element119
I've always liked Til' the Livin' End. It reminds me of Tooth and Nail a lot, but I honestly find this song slightly better. - Element119
This whole album was underrated
Very underrated song. Criminally low at 26
They came BACK FOR THE ATTACK ALRIGHT!
Dons voice and Georges guitar! damn forget about it!
Still sounds awesome nearly 30 yrs later
Probably the best mix of everything that dokken was good at. Back for the attack was their peak.
Criminal that it's not ranked way higher, top 5 at least
Truly melodic song, includes acoustic and electric guitar tone, light speeding solo amazing vocal harmony, this track off of under lock and key is definitely one for the books
How is this song not on the list? Kiss of Death number one?!?!?! I always skip that track.
Another catchy song with a great hook. Tight musicianship and it rocks!
Such an overlooked classic, buy such an underrated band
I agree with the comment about this being a very catchy song. The chorus will get stuck in your head quite easily:
"Baby, I'm a prisoner
Chained by love
It's so easy to see I can never be free
I'm a prisoner chained by love"
The lyrics aren't that impressive, but the music is pretty good. - Element119
I feel you inside while I'm standing on the outside!
Better than the original
