"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[1] and no. 50 in the United States, spending eight weeks or more in each chart.[2]

A cover version by Big Star appeared on the CD release of Third/Sister Lovers.

The song was also covered by Japanese band Shonen Knife and is one of four songs on the CD single "Brown Mushrooms And Other Delights" from their Rock Animals album released in 1993.

Ty Segall's band, Fuzz, also covered the song on their 2013 debut album.
