"All Day and All of the Night" is a song by the British band The Kinks from 1964. It reached #2 on the UK Singles Chart and #7 on the United States Charts. Like their previous hit "You Really Got Me", the song relies on a simple sliding power chord riff, although this song's riff is slightly more complicated, incorporating a B Flat after the chords F and G.

In 2003 it appeared as #57 on Pure Pop's list of The 100 Best Singles of All Time.
