"Four Kicks" is the second single taken from Aha Shake Heartbreak which is the second album by the American rock band Kings of Leon. It peaked at number 24 in the UK singles chart and number 32 in the Irish singles chart.

The song's name is reminiscent of Led Zeppelin's Four Sticks, as is the guitar riff.

Music video[edit]

The song's music video shows the band playing in a lobby where a massive fight breaks out spontaneously with people in the lobby when the band start playing the song. During the fighting the room is lit in red; but whenever Caleb is singing the red light goes out and the people fighting freeze in mid air.

Christopher "Nacho" Followill, a cousin to the band and a guitar tech, makes an appearance in the video.
