There is no question, it's IWMFLY. I know some of our U.S. brethren choose to ignore this fact, but that doesn't change the reality of the matter.

I Was Made For Lovin' You.

News flash for our brethren in the States: aside from you guys, no one else in the world gives a sh*t about RARAL.

Or Beth, for that matter.

I challenge you to find even two people on a random city street to mention that song first.

If you ask 10 people who can actually mention one Kiss song, I say 6 mentions IWMFLY, 3 mentions Heaven's On Fire and 1 mentions RARAN.

Heaven’s On Fire? You think that one would be up there? I’m not sure about that. I feel like Lick It Up would be ahead of it but I think those two at best might round out the top 10...

I live in the UK. Outside of Kiss fans, the only songs most people might know were by Kiss would be GGRARTY and Crazy Nights - and even then you'd likely have to play the choruses to them before they knew what you were talking about.

I voted for RARAN. Kind of ironic that KISS would be known more for a damned disco tune, though

I think it's a question of looking at the chart performance and going from there. In this part of Europe (and I believe this applies to many other places too), few of those who are not Kiss fans will be able to name or even recognize RARAN.

I know for the UK that's probably correct. In Scandinavia the first massive wave of success for KISS was already dying out by CCN and had certainly gone by GGRARTY.

It's interesting though that in Norway Crazy Nights actually charted better than Asylum.

But yeah, speaking of the Nordic countries, in Finland Kiss' popularity was definitely in a rapid decline among my friends (even though CN charted as high as 4th here).

Some here laughably think Forever is a hit song that the world knows because it had a moment in the sun on the charts like many new singles that were typically released by a popular rock band.

I trust this poll will be edited to correct the error of not including a landmark song like Forever.

Even that is stretching it. No one knows that song to any great degree in America. Hell, some KISS songs that never made the charts are more well known than Forever.

IWMFLY was the type of European hit that was short-lived, among non-rock fans, and quickly disappeared from the pop fans world as they moved on to the next disposable euro-trash garbage "hit". R&RAN is a classic that every rock fan in North America knows so much they're obviously sick of it. As I mentioned earlier, it's much more ingrained into people's psyche than the dumb disco song that most Kiss fans hated.

RARAN is a rock audience song. IWMFLY is the song everyone knows.

It's the song we will put on the golden disc on the next Voyager spaceship.

And the space people will listen and say: "Hey, is that Ace playing the solo? Didn't he use to live on Jendell."

Again you mention North America. It’s a big world out there and more people know IWMFLY. You are clearly letting your bias against it rule you.

Unfortunately in this country, it's IWMFLY.

There have been brief flashes of recognition for other songs (eg Crazy Crazy Nights and God Gave...) that have given me equally brief moments of social acceptability and even coolness as 'the KISS fan', but they soon passed.

I'm a great fan of Dynasty and probably rank it my favourite 70s group album due to childhood nostalgia. That wretched opening cut though...

News flash for our brethren in the States: aside from you guys, no one else in the world gives a sh*t about RARAL.

Or Beth, for that matter.
What's RARAL?

Probably RARAN
That probably speaks more to the party anthemic lyrics more than the popularity of the song. I heard I Love It Loud at a NBL game once (Aust basketball league). It was a big shock! But IWMFLY isn’t really stadium anthem like RARAN is. What gets played more on radio? Or in the background of media stories about KISS? Without having the numbers it’s impossible to know, but I feel like IWMFLY would be more known on a worldwide scale.
