Tim Jonze of NME commented that the song is "splattered with sleaze and sharp as a blade," and that "this is rock'n'roll how it should be played." Conversely, Heather Phares of Allmusic described that the song "should be more exciting than it actually it is."
The music video for "Kick It" was directed by Dawn Shadforth and Alex Smith. It shows Peaches and Iggy fighting against some zombies. The video begins with zombies walking on the streets while Peaches and Iggy are yelling the lyrics at each other. They hit the zombies throughout the video until they've beaten them all down.
