"Kick It Out" is a short, fast-tempo hard rock song recorded by the rock band Heart, written by Ann Wilson. It was released as the third and final single from the band's second album Little Queen in 1977. When released the song did not perform as well as previous Heart singles, reaching number seventy-nine on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100.

"Kick It Out" was played by the band in concert regularly from 1977 through 1980. In subsequent years it was dropped from the setlist until being added back in 2002. Since then, Heart has continued playing the song on a regular basis.

Demonstrating its longstanding popularity with the Seattle rock and grunge inner circles, fellow Seattle band Foo Fighters played a version during a 2014 appearance on The David Letterman Show, inviting Heart's Ann Wilson and Nancy Wilson to perform lead vocals and guitar respectively.[1]
