2 Detroit 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!

I’m an 11 year old in 2018. Although sometimes I find people who also like hard/heavy classic rock like the stuff on ozzy’s boneyard, I still feel alone when people say they hate classic rock or say they like rap/pop.

I was born in the wrong generation.

3 I 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)

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. - saurabh192007

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!

It killed rock and roll

4 Love Gun

Find out what it means, lolz - SmoothCriminal

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

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

Role models: “see that? The gun is his dick! ”

5 Strutter

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

My favorite pre-game jam, like paul says "this ones for the ladies"

6 God 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. - Arencey

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! - maarilynmaanson

7 Beth

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

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

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.

The first time I realized the song was from Kiss, I could not believe it!

8 Black 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

Their first album got little respect when it first came out but it produced the best song. Here’s my top ten songs.
1. Black Diamond
2. C’mon and Love Me
3. I Was Made For Lovin’ You
4. Love Gun
5. Detroit Rock City
6. Love Em’, Leave Em’
7. She
8. Caster Plaster
9. Let Me Go, Rock and Roll
10. Heaven’s on Fire

9 Forever

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 - SmoothCriminal

its has probably the best solo in the world :)

Co-written by Michael Bolton! Haha
Still a good song though!

10 Crazy 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! - grecco

The Contenders

11 Shout 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.

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

Both Paul and Gene sing lead on this get-up-and-rock song. How is it not in the top FIVE!

Great hook and rhythm. Love the chorus.

12 Heaven's on Fire

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

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

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

13 War Machine

Heavy and shows off genes unique vocals

Learned how to play bass on this song!

It is one of kiss best heavy songs ever

You better watchout
Cause I'm a War Machine - christangrant

14 Deuce

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.

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.

15 Lick 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 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. - Shake_n_Bake13

Definitely deserves to be higher and I mean like in the top 5 this song is iconic

16 I Love It Loud

Eric Carr's Drums Alone Make This Song Brilliant

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

This song rocks and gets you pumped up, great memories

Best kiss song

17 Calling 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.

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

Too far down...

18 Cold 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

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.

The simple sounding, catchy solo makes this song one of my favorites.

19 We are One

Best, most underrated KISS song ever.

An amazing song! Very special

20 Say Yeah

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

21 Psycho Circus

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.

22 I'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.

23 Unholy

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

24 Seduction 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.

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

25 Creatures 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.

I don't know why this isn't on the top 10. This song is one of the first Kiss songs I've listened to and to this day it still makes me feel great listening to it!

Pauls sings not gene... Great dark paul song

26 Parasite

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.

27 Journey of 1,000 Years

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

28 God Gave Rock and Roll to You II

a great dedication song to Eric Carr

This song is off the hook

Damn the watchmojo list said this was 9th place

Why does Paul hafta sing like a teenage girl!

29 Shock 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.
*-* SPACE WITH ACE! - Metalhead222x3

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.

One of the best guitar solos of all time

V 4 Comments
30 Talk to Me

Ace isn't the best singer, but he is pretty good in this song. Same with "Shock Me".

31 New 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!

Top 5 Kiss song!

32 100,000 Years

Listen to the Drum Solo on Alive - Lilbob93

I love all these songs. However my most favorite song ever is 100,000 years. I LOVE KISS! - Wendy56

This song is from beginning to end great, you can't sit with this song

Drum solo on Alive takes it to another level

33 Hotter Than Hell

Perfect in every way! In my top 5!

Always great, LOVE KISS...

34 God 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.

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.

This song is amazing, Why isn't it higher than 34th on the list - ChelseaPurnell

35 Do You Love Me

Damn Good Song One of there Bests and one of my Favourites!

Do You Love Me KISS ARMY - Curti2594

Really good--one of my fave "Paul" songs

36 Sure 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

Even better than I was made for loving you. - Userguy44

37 Great Expectations

A song for the fans, love it

This song is way better then hate go down to see hate and lisen to it you will not like it

More I listen to it- more I like it!
Way ahead of it's time!

38 Firehouse

What?! No ways! This is one of their best songs ever!

Love it! Great drumming!


39 King of the Night Time World

Heard this song on The Paul Lynde Halloween Special, which made me go out & buy the album!

40 Christine Sixteen

I cried for an entire week before turning seventeen because two of my favorite KISS songs are about sixteen year old girls

This HAS to be higher up on the list! The chorus sticks in your head all day!

41 Goin' Blind

This song makes me want to be sixteen forever

The Melvins cover is better, but this is the best kiss song ever!

42 I Still Love You

The MTV unplugged version is just outstanding!

Awesome slow song that still has a powerful feel to it.

Pretty good song that's about his breakup w/ Donna Dixon! & then she married Dan Ackroyd!

43 Strange Ways

heavy with street cred lyrics by ace and aces awesome I think best solo

44 Hard 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.

Sometimes I just get pissed off with the people. This is one of the best KISS works!
It deserves much more than this.

My #2 Fave! Written by Paul & sung by Peter!

45 I 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.

Is the great song,

46 Rain

Carnival of souls kicks ass

47 All Hell's Breakin' Loose

Hey hey have you heard the news

48 Magic Touch

Always thought this was a good song. Sounds cheesy now! Laugh out loud

49 Love Her All I Can
50 Within

Probably the best song on that album!
