"Who'll Be the Next in Line" is a song by the British rock band The Kinks. It was written by Ray Davies.


"Who'll Be the Next in Line" was first released as the B-side to "Ev'rybody's Gonna Be Happy", a Kinks single released in Britain. However, upon its relative failure in the UK, Reprise felt that the "Ev'rybody's Gonna Be Happy" single was unfit for release in America. The subsequent single, "Set Me Free", was released, but after The Kinks' next proposed single, "See My Friends" was sent to Reprise, they decided to release the "Ev'rybody's Gonna Be Happy" single, only with "Who'll Be the Next in Line" as the A-side. The single charted, hitting #34, which was more successful than the following "See My Friends" (which only hit #111.)[1]

"Who'll Be the Next in Line" also appeared as a bonus track on some reissues of the Kinks album Kinda Kinks.
