Learn how to play God Of Thunder by Kiss. This song rocks but is simple enough for beginners to pick up. Be sure to grab the tabs for God Of Thunder below.

According to Songfacts: Known as Gene Simmons’ signature song, this was actually written by his bandmate, Paul Stanley, who had written it as a much more uptempo number about him being the “God Of Thunder” and Rock and Roll. Bob Ezrin, who produced the Destroyer album, heard it, loved it, and much to Paul Stanley’s chagrin, gave it to Gene to sing. On the record, it is much slower, plodding, and menacing.

NOTE: Tune 1/2 step down!

Lyrics

You’ve got something about you
You’ve got something I need
Daughter of Aphrodite
Hear my words and take heed
I was born on Olympus
To my father a son
I was raised by the demons
Trained to reign as the one
God of thunder and rock and roll
The spell you’re under
Will slowly rob you of your virgin soul
I’m the Lord of the wastelands
A modern day man of steel
I gather darkness to please me
And I command you to kneel
Before the
God of thunder and rock and roll
The spell you’re under
Will slowly rob you of your virgin soul
I am the Lord of the wastelands
A modern day man of steel
I gather darkness to please me
And I command thee to kneel
Before the
God of thunder and rock and roll
The spell you’re under
Will slowly rob you of your virgin soul
