Top 100 Kiss Songs

With a catalog as cavernous as that of KISS, the idea of picking only 100 songs – let alone ranking them – can seem a bit daunting. Nevertheless, I’ve taken it on with all the vigor that a dyed-in-the-wool KISS Army veteran such as myself could muster.

Indeed, KISS’s original foursome of Paul Stanley, Gene Simmons, Ace Frehley, and Peter Criss provided droves of iconic cuts, as evidenced by the selections herein. Still, when we look back upon KISS’s now 50-year history, one cannot discount the exploit of Vinnie Vincent, Mark St. John, Eric Carr, Eric Singer, Tommy Thayer, and Bruce Kulick – all of which are featured heavily here.

What follows are the top 100 KISS songs. Dig in, enjoy, and as always, let the great debate rage on
