Top 10 Best Kings of Leon Songs

The Top Ten
1 Use Somebody Use Somebody Cover Art

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.

These lists are horrid. You can tell the majority only know Use Somebody and Sex On Fire, despite the former being one of their most boring songs. No, the number one spot goes to Ragoo, The End, Closer, Talihina Sky, Trani, Pickup Truck, Knocked Up, Four Kicks or Rememo...

2 Sex on Fire Sex on Fire Cover Art

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.

Awesome song from start to finish. This is the song that made me buy a KOL album and I now have all their albums, personally I think their older stuff is better but I like a lot of their new songs.

Outstanding song, it has got everything, the lyrics, the sound, it gets everybody rocking and singing along, they are an outstanding band brilliant live.

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.

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.

I really feel it ignites a fire inside U. Specially if you feel like you have an anger inside you. The build up with that unconventional howl in the guitar. It does set you up for the first verse 'stranded in a spooky town.. '

Recommendation : Listen to this song 3 am in the morning while driving your car... *gosebumps*

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...

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

The song just speaks to me. Reminds me of a special time when I was younger and exploring new music. Coupled with such lyrical genius it's no wonder a good song.

This song is beautiful, it's so amazing. I never hear better song. Evokes so many incredible and indescribable emotion. When I hear it I'm in another world.

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!

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

Why is this song not 1st

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.

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

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.

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.

Great soulful song. Voting for this as it deserves to be right up there in the top 3 with Use Somebody and Sex Fire.

9 Charmer Charmer Cover Art

Incredible song. What a vocal performance.

Amazing song, that scream is awesome!

10 On Call On Call Cover Art

This song is so amazing! I thought Kings of Leon was okay, until they overplayed songs like Use Somebody or Sex On Fire. After a couple of years I heard them and they are amazing again!

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

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

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

The Contenders
11 Crawl Crawl Cover Art

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

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!

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.

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

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.

How is this song not their best song?

Simple yet effective.

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

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!

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

It should be at #7. really amazing 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.

Been listening to this song for years, it's never gotten old.

16 Red Morning Light Red Morning Light Cover Art

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

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

19 Black Thumbnail Black Thumbnail Cover Art

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

20 Slow Night, So Long Slow Night, So Long Cover Art
21 Molly's Chambers Molly's Chambers Cover Art

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

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

It's a disgrace that this song is so low.

Come on it can't be 28th! Really epic!

22 Trani Trani Cover Art

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.

Absolultely, Bonnaroo 1004, is my all time favourite KOL performance, truly outstanding performance. YOU TUBE it all you Sex on Fire fans!

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

23 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

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.

I just loved this one. Best music I have ever heard. Just made me fall in love with these guys.

24 Supersoaker Supersoaker Cover Art

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

Extremely catchy and on repeat already 100 times, never gets boring.

Best chorus out of all their songs, impossible not to sing along!

Listen to this amazing song once and you will be hooked!

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
