Best Kiss Songs

The Top Ten
1 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!

2 Detroit Rock City Detroit Rock City Cover Art

This is so much better than "Rock and Roll All Nite" I really like this song, on the other hand I often get bored of Rock and Roll All Nite half way through the 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..

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.

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.

3 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.

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!

Great tune! A real change in direction but I liked it, I feel the change really came to its own on unmasked. Kiss has made many transitions with the times a shame people don't see them for what they have managed to do over 40 years! Wow amazing band.

4 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 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.

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

5 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!

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.

6 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!

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.

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

7 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.

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

8 Beth Beth Cover Art

Even though this is a great hit it shouldn't be in the top ten. The top ten should be something like

I was made for loving you
Detroit rock city
I love it loud
Rock and roll all nite
Shandi
Love gun
Shout it out loud
Sure know something
Black diamond
Lick it up

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.

9 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!

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 should be easily number 1. Technically not their best but easily on of the rock anthems of all time.

10 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

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

Why isn't this on top 5?

The Contenders
11 Black Diamond Black Diamond Cover Art

Okay, I know this song from Yoshiki's version (Off the Kiss My Ass CD) but it's so catchy!
The song Kurenai by X Japan sounds a lot like it in the intro by the way. That's how I remembered it...

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 .

This is my favourite KISS songs, it really deserves top 5. It starts off with that soft opening from Paul and then Peter takes over it's just awesome, and Ace Frehley is really good on the song as well. This song is KISS at they're best!

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

12 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!

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

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

13 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.

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

Should be in the top 10. My favorite Kiss song.

Should be at least in the Top Ten! M/

14 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 would give all my money to be able to see this song performed live. I think this is getting it pretty tough being only in ninth place...
Everybody should vote this song up. Best vocals of any Kiss song.

15 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.

Learned how to play bass on this song!

Beat me if you can, Survive if I let you.

I love this song!

16 Cold Gin Cold Gin Cover Art

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

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.

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)

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

17 We are One We are One Cover Art

An amazing song! Very special

18 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!

19 Calling Dr. Love Calling Dr. Love Cover Art

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

Best kiss tone, along with detroit rock city, god of thunder, love guns, war machine, creatures of the night, I love it loud

Classic Gene! Should be in the top five!

Another fave of mine!

20 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.

21 Shout It Out Loud Shout It Out Loud Cover Art

Rock Anthenm of all times!
This is the best song of the game guitar hero 5
This song should be on the top ten
My favorite song of the kiss!

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!

22 Say Yeah

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

23 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.

24 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

25 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
