How Would You Rank Every Kiss ‘Destroyer’ Song?


Kiss‘ 1976 studio masterpiece Destroyer turns 40 this week. Pretty much everyone and their mother agree that it’s the group’s best studio album, so let’s go one level deeper: What’s the best song on the record?

You’ve got nine really strong choices laid out for you below (and, if brief sound collages are your thing, yes, we included the “Rock and Roll Party” run-out groove as well). About half of these tracks – such as obvious classics “Detroit Rock City,” “God of Thunder” and “Shout It Out Loud” – have remained staples of the band’s live sets all these years later, and the Peter Criss-sung ballad “Beth” is one of their biggest hit singles ever.

You can use the widget below to rank all 10 songs in whatever order you please. (For now, mobile users are only able to choose their favorite track.) Feel free to vote early and often over the next week – we’ll certainly be doing our part to make sure “Flaming Youth” and “Do You Love Me?” get the adoration and attention they deserve.

The voting will end on March 21 at 11:59PM ET. Be sure to bookmark this page, because the results will be posted right here on March 22. Thanks for playing along!
