Best Kings of Leon Songs

The Top Ten

1 Use Somebody Use Somebody Cover Art

Such an amazing song I just love this song I just can't stop singing along with the band when this song is playing anywhere those who haven't listened to this please do because your missing some very clever and beautiful piece of song PLEASE VOTE FOR IT GUYS AND KEEP IT AT THE TOP!

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.

Of course the most popular but definitely not the best! Go listen to the albums before and, why not, after this! So much better! I'm starting to hate this song because people base on it to decide if they like KOL or not or to define KOL stile which was, and actually is, really different!

This is the song for my alarm. So practically I start my day with this song. This is the song that I listen to when I am sad. This is the song that I listen to when I am feeling alone and find courage. Appreciate it very much.

2 Sex on Fire Sex on Fire Cover Art

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...

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.

Simply superb! Takes me back to "Could You Be Loved" of the great Jamaican legend --- Bob Marley. While Marley was inimitable, "Sex on Fire" also underpins KOL charisma.

'sex on fire' should be number 1. I personally think that this is the greatest song of kings of leon. I know people who love them for this song only and people, who started listening to them because of this song. it is truly amazing.

3 Closer Closer Cover Art

The Guitar riff, the lyrics, the steady drum beat, and the soul and emotion expressed in the unique and raspy vocals make this song my personal favorite. The perfect blend of all these factors plus the building intensity throughout the whole song should boost this song to the top two at least. I'm honestly disappointed to see this classic at # 4

Closer deserves to be number 1, the lyrics are the best ever. Use Somebody and Sex On Fire is very good. But Closer is better. Listen to it if you haven't, you'll know.

You shimmy-shook my boat,
Leavin' me stranded all in love on my own
Do you think of me?
Where am I now, baby where do I sleep?
Feels so good but I'm old
2000 years of chasing takin' its toll

Their albums are way deeper than the tracks that get played on the radio, and Closer is a perfect example of this. It's relatively unknown compared to "Use Somebody" or "Radioactive, " but it's just as good, if not better, than any song they have, and it hardly gets recognition. Amazing song.

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)

4 Knocked Up Knocked Up Cover Art

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.

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.

This song is excellent it should be on the top 3 it so deserves to be its sad to see iot in 5 shouild be ahead of pyro and closer believe me it should so sad to see it here it is.

Song is what the real people who like good music, need to listen 2...fell in love with this song when I saw them for 1st time...an honor to hear live

5 Pyro Pyro Cover Art

I think this song is one of the best songs of all time because it is original and you can listen to it over and over again without getting bored. The only reason this song isn't number 1) is because it isn't MAINSTREAM compared to some of the others...

Can't believe this particular song is ranked 4 sincerely I believe it should be among the top 3 because the vibe which floats around with this song make you say this I don't wanna be a cornerstone...god common show some improvements..

I know this song so much! It's am amazing song. I has such a great beat to it and the lyrics are so amazing. Kings of Leon is just a great band in gerneal. But this song is definitely a favorite and should be a top song! I'd give it a 9 out of 10 it's awesome man

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!

6 Radioactive Radioactive Cover Art

This song is so powerful and has so much soul, 8th place does not give it credit, 1st or 2nd the least, most people (HC fans)just don't like the fact that is from the new album and that is the one that has catapulted them to world stardom, but hey you don't achieve world stradom with just any tune, right?

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!

Uplifting, Fresh, Clean, Awesome Song
Stands out from so many of today's songs
I hope Kings of Leon work out their problems and keep making music! THEY KEEP GETTING BETTER!

Me and my dad listen to this song in the car an we know nearly all the words I LOVE KINGS OF LEONX

7 The Bucket The Bucket Cover Art

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!

The first badass KOL song, from their early work that's criminally under represented on this (honestly, pretty lame) list. This one made me want to listen to more kol... As it probably did for most "OG" fans.

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

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

8 Notion Notion Cover Art

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.

Easily the best KOL song that I've heard. This is the song that helped me get in to Kings of Leon. The bass line and the drums and the key board melody in the back is so grooby all together. Not to mention the vocals are so raw.

I discover this song after watching a "Musical Autopsy: Kings of Leon" on youtube, adoseofbuckley criticize KOL but I think the goodness of the song is on the listener

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.

9 Charmer Charmer Cover Art

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

Incredible song. What a vocal performance.

Amazing song, that scream is awesome!

10 On Call On Call Cover Art

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

This song is certainly one of a kind. The music is very haunting and soulful. Certainly a kings of leon special, I am surprised it dint make to the top five

This is a great song, Has a good bass to it and the lyrics are great. Makes you want to sing along and certainly get a guitar and play along

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

The Contenders

11 Crawl Crawl Cover Art

Mann this is at 17! Top 5 catchiest songs of all times.. For me..

Deserves to be much higher- my first kings of leon song

Classic guitar solo and so underrated should be at #6.

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

12 Fans Fans Cover Art

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.

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!

Along with Arizona & King of the Rodeo, best song they have. It's a pity people mostly listen/vote to/for Only by the Night songs as they are much more than that

Kings of Leon's best by some distance. It is quite remarkable how a rock song of such simplicity can encompass such beauty and quality in its melodies.

13 Four Kicks Four Kicks Cover Art

This song should be in the top 10 its awesome and very good vote for it because I've go bored of sex on fire and use somebody.

Wow can't believe that all the classics are this far down four kicks is amazing

How is this song not their best song?

Simple yet effective.

14 Be Somebody Be Somebody Cover Art

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.

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!

Cool intro, I like actually some of the other songs of KOL but, this one is not so simple as others, so yes I like it

Amazing song and think its underrated considering how amazing it is. honestly love this song!

15 King of the Rodeo King of the Rodeo Cover Art

Best chorus I think I have ever heard. I play this song all the time and I just don't get bored of it. Please for this song because it is an amazing piece of songwriting and it's incredibly catchy. Good work guys!

Song's got a sizzle about it. More of a country rock song. The first time I listened to this song I was like man I should have it. The song's a must have for all kol fans.

Great track love the sound not a country fan but think this is great.

Its something entirely different and new

16 Red Morning Light Red Morning Light Cover Art

First song I heard from them and still my favorite... back in 2004 when it was the intro for fifa 04 lol...

Great guitar and lyrics. Should be top 20. So should Genius.

This is KOL at their rugged best before they sold out to the pop world

Very funny song, rackabily, you can't be on bad mood whit this tune.

17 Holy Roller Novocaine Holy Roller Novocaine Cover Art

This list is just travesty.

18 Ragoo Ragoo Cover Art

The fact that this song is barely top 30 is mind blowing. Easily one of their best songs and better than their mainstream hits that shouldn't be in the top 10

Their best song, hands down

So much insight from a young KOL.

Unknown best KoL song

19 Black Thumbnail Black Thumbnail Cover Art

WHOA HOLD ON PEOPLE. This is an awesome. The lyrics are notoriously genius and the song deserves much more than no 15.

Underrated B-side, in my top 10 KOL songs.

20 Slow Night, So Long Slow Night, So Long Cover Art

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.

One of my favorite songs by KOL

21 Molly's Chambers Molly's Chambers Cover Art

How is Molly's Chamber's now number 1? It's also the first song I learned to play on the bass

This list is a joke. There older stuff was better. This is an absolute classic!

EPIC SONG! Definitely top 10. Nice guitar and awesome vocals

Its a disgrace that this song is so low.

22 Revelry Revelry Cover Art

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

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.

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.

Love this song because I believe it deals with guilt, love, reminiscing, and pain, but still it has the touch of a love song.

23 Trani Trani Cover Art

Trani at Bonnaroo 2004, was KOL's best ever performance, and this song truly is unbelievable, way way way better than sex on fire and use somebody. If you want Kings of Leon this is the song and Where Nobody Knows

She don't get off unless somebody is standing near hear... Oscillating on the ground throwing white noise sound.

If you do not think this song deserves to be in KOL's Top 3 songs- Then you clearly do not know KOL. At all. Also, Bob Dylan likes this song. BOB DYLAN.

Definitely one of the greqtest Kings of leon song I've heard. So raw and so passionate

24 Supersoaker Supersoaker Cover Art

This song is just incredible..the fun drums and guitar riff...it deserves to be in the top ten!

It's fun, somehow motivating and fast song, I think it should be in the first ten best here

Needs to be way higher. Easily one of their best songs. Best chorus by far

Best from last album and probably their best song, deserves more votes!

25 Soft Soft Cover Art

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
