"Till the End of the Day" is a song by The Kinks, written by Ray Davies and released as a single in 1965 and later on their album The Kink Kontroversy. It centres on a power chord, like many of the group's early hits, and was similarly successful, reaching no. 8 in the United Kingdom and no. 50 in the United States, spending eight weeks or more in each chart.
A cover version by Big Star appeared on the CD release of Third/Sister Lovers. Alex Chilton, the singer for Big Star, would eventually record the song with Davies 30 years later for Davies' album "See My Friends, which ended up being Chilton's last studio recording before passing away seven months before the record's release.
Ty Segall's band, Fuzz, also covered the song on their 2013 debut album.
