Best Kiss Songs

The Top Ten
Detroit Rock City Detroit Rock City Cover Art

I believe that if you polled the rock musicians in prominent bands that 'Detroit Rock City' would be voted as the number one song from KISS. My opinion is that this is the perfect rock N roll jam. It has it all from a great lyrical story, an awesome rhythm guitar riff, a rocking bass riff and a killer guitar solo culminating in an awesome guitar harmony and outro. My favorite all time rock N roll song.

# 1, R&R all night 2, Domino 3, Shout it out loud 4, Creatures of the night 5, Love Gun 6, Crazy nights 7, Shock me 8, Black Diamond 9, Calling Dr. Love 10. But this is the ultimate song for the hard core KISS Fan. May the Demon be with you... Always. It's just really to bad that the original four could not have worked together it just shows how much drugs, alcohol and greed can screw up everything. Its all proven KISSTORY..

Kiss is the loudest band around. When the guitars start kicking in on this song it's like nothing else out there. Just hold on and enjoy the ride. Now we're rocking'. Should be at the top of the list.

Rock 'n Roll All Nite was ok, and this one I Was Made for Lovin' You should be in the lower 10 songs by KISS.
When you look at the over all picture this Detroit Rock City was the best song they every did...

Rock and Roll All Nite Rock and Roll All Nite Cover Art

This definitely is not their best song. For what ever reason, it seems to get most of the airplay on todays radio. Groups like Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Motley Crue and D Leppard have all of their old hits played evenly on a regular basis. There are at least 20 KISS songs that should get that kind of attention but don't.

I don't think there is any debate when it comes to the most popular, head banging worthy, feel good, adrenaline pumping rock roll anthem EVER! This is a staple not only for KISS but for ROCK and ROLL in general, adored and loved by the KISS Army and many other rock fans. Rock on!

Never been a kiss fan, but this song is pretty good.
The original kiss song.
Okay, I don't like kiss, but this song is at least real rock.
It is okay.
The one kiss song I like.
But again not a kiss fan.
And by the way, you spelled night wrong.

The Alive One version is the best. In fact, all of the versions from Alive one are better than the studio versions... If you haven't heard Alive One (I know Kiss freaks have), you have to hear it. The energy and lengthy solos are great!

I Was Made for Lovin' You I Was Made for Lovin' You Cover Art

For those that are still thinking that Detroit Rock City is the best song by Kiss, Damn NO This one is much a better song with a nicer guitar behind the stuff, and clearly the drummer did a longer and much clear performance.

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 it's a tie between I was made for loving u and detroit city.

The energy of this song is unbelievable! Excellent music following the simplicity of the lyrics but with a so true meaning, the words you wanna say to the person you love with all the strength of your voice! And there aren't enough words for the guitar work...

Na mate Na, this is obviously their best song, it got most publicity a d was superior in popularity around the KISS era, by the way Ace frehley needs to be back in kiss and Peter Crisis it's a shame that Eric Car is dead he was also a great drummer!

Strutter Strutter Cover Art

When I first came across KISS this was my favourite track. Heavy, melodic early KISS is the best. However, this top ten is missing some top songs like: 'Calling Doctor Love', 'Deuce', 'Hotter than Hell', 'Killer' and perhaps 'Shout it out Loud'. Yet I suppose there are too many good ones... From 1973-2012 KISS have not failed in producing something of quality.

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!

It's a song of radio-x in Grand Theft Auto San Andreas! Hell yeah!.

"Life is too short to have anything but delusional notions about yourself. "
Gene Simmons

It's probably the best song of their's. It's really catchy and everything so I don't understand why this isn't higher up in the list.

Love Gun Love Gun Cover Art

Love Gun is my favourite by Kiss. The guitar riff, the drumming, the vocals and THAT GUITAR SOLO are simply excellent in my opinion. Great song, great album.

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

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

Lyrics are ok. Vocals are amazing. One of the best live songs that KISS does. Nasty solo by the Space Man.

God of Thunder God of Thunder Cover Art

God of Thunder and Rock & Roll! I love this song, of course along with "Love Gun" & "Detroit Rock City."
You wanted the best. You got the best. The hottest band in the world: KISS!

Hard to believe that Paul wrote this. This song used to scare the crap outta me w/ the little kid talking in the song, on Destroyer laugh out loud

I love everything about this song, the lyrics really got me hooked. Gene's vocals just add something special to this one.

When listening to the song you can't help but get into the dark and gritty feel of Gene's persona.

Forever Forever Cover Art

I'm a head banger for life, KISS is my favourite band ever, Forever is the best KISS song because it's romantic, charismatic and memorable.

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.

I really love this song. Wish there would be more of this kind.

My song to play when I walk down the aisle on my wedding day

Beth Beth Cover Art

Listen to Beth and you will fall in love with this band. Yes, it's a slow song. It's a bit out of the rock and roll flavor. But man does everyone LOVE this song. It is also Peter Crisis's best song by far.

Best song when it came out and just like sweet home Alabama, it never dies and they're still playing it a lot today!

Love it. Hear it all the time on the Oldies radio channel. Can sing along to it. It's slow so doesn't sound like Kiss.

It was so unlike what Kiss is known for that it showed their versatility.

Crazy Crazy Nights Crazy Crazy Nights Cover Art

This song is just so fun and takes the repetition and makes it great. The vocals are amazing, the guitar is killer, the bass and drums back perfectly, and the keyboards accompany the song amazingly instead of taking it over. Really great song, deserves the high spot.

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!

In my opinion, this song is a tribute that Kiss wanted to give to their fans. It's so full of energy and passion, it makes one pride to listen to rock n roll!

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!

Black Diamond Black Diamond Cover Art

By far this is the greatest Kiss song
Everything you'd expect from a great rock song smooth intro,catchy guitar riffs, amazing lyrics ,killer basslines ,a raspy screaming voice ,a unique outro and above all mind blowing lead sections played by the one and only Ace Frehley .This is by far the most creative Kiss song and it truly deserves the number one spot .

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

It takes time to look past superficial production to recognize great songs & early KISS had great punchy rock songs that flew in the face of much of the so-called prog & wimpy pop of the day.

Out of the options this is the top choice! So many great kiss songs like New York groove or rocket ride or great expectations... On and on...

The Contenders
I Love It Loud I Love It Loud Cover Art

This was one of the first songs that got me to like rock music & KISS. I remember being infatuated with listening this song!

Very Heavy...
One of the greatest gene simmons Solos
Ever one of best eric carr's drum solo

This song rocks and gets you pumped up, great memories

One of the best Hard Rock songs I've ever heard.

Heaven's on Fire Heaven's on Fire Cover Art

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.

The Best song ever And yes I could feel the heat taking me burn with me and Heavens on fire

My favourite KISS song for sure. This song is takin' me high

Our third favorite kiss song. Should be in top 5.

Deuce Deuce Cover Art

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.

Hello! How is this song not in the top 3. Calling real KISS fans everywhere, get this song to number 1!

The best song and is one of the first songs made by kiss. Please help this song make in to at least 6th place

Amazing, heavy hard rock song. A true classic, and one of their originals as mentioned.

God Gave Rock 'N Roll to You God Gave Rock 'N Roll to You Cover Art

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.

Can't believe this song isn't at least in the top 5. I really do think it's one of the greatest songs not only by Kiss, but of the entire Rock history! This song indeed occupies such an important place in all of the members of the Kiss Army's hearts and will always be a reason for being proud of what this amazing band has made (and keeps on doing) for Rock n' Roll.

I Love this song. It should be #1 or #2. This song is great and it holds a special place in most Kiss fans Hearts because Eric Car checked himself out of the hospital when he had heart cancer to play this song. we will miss you Eric Car. Kiss Rocks.

I agree this song should be rated #1 in the top ten list because I believe the kiss members of the time put their work into the song. I agree with the lyrics that God did give us rock and Roll

Lick It Up Lick It Up Cover Art

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!

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.

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 nothing.

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!

Cold Gin Cold Gin Cover Art

This is PURE Kiss 💋. Classic Stones influenced riff, an amazing verse setting up that memorable chorus. This should be way higher up the list. My favorite. track when playing Alive. But the original from their debut is the best version. COLD GIN TIME AGAIN!

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.

War Machine War Machine Cover Art

It's like a thrash song! I don't know why everyone likes rock and roll all nite. It's not a good song! It's way overrated, and they repeat "I wanna rock and roll all night and party every day" over and over and over again! It's a song that people who don't listen to rock love.

Heavy and shows off genes unique vocals

It is one of kiss best heavy songs ever

Learned how to play bass on this song!

We are One We are One Cover Art

An amazing song! Very special

Best, most underrated KISS song ever.

Calling Dr. Love Calling Dr. Love Cover Art

If arrogance belongs anywhere, it belongs in a rock and roll song.

Classic Gene! Should be in the top five!

Another fave of mine!

Needs to go higher

Shout It Out Loud Shout It Out Loud Cover Art

My favorite Kiss song. Loud, hard, great chorus, an anthem to all that is rock. All a rock song should be.

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!

This song is pure awesomeness! Listen to it and you'll agree!

Say Yeah

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

I've Had Enough (Into the Fire) I've Had Enough (Into the Fire) Cover Art

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.

Seduction of the Innocent Seduction of the Innocent Cover Art

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.

Love this song, great riff in the end. Really plays on Genes demonic side

Journey of 1,000 Years Journey of 1,000 Years Cover Art

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

Psycho Circus Psycho Circus Cover Art

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.

This is an important song in Kiss history. Coming back to their roots but in a more modern style for the time. Love this song

This song was to be top 5 easily. Definitely my favorite song from Kiss. Masterpiece.

Can't take this song off repeat. Definitely one of my favorite from Kiss.
