Kick Axe is the name of a heavy metal band from Canada that reached its climax in the 1980s. They produced four albums during their career, with the longest gap between albums being 18 years. The albums are: Vices, Welcome to the Club, Rock the World and Kick Axe IV.

The band had minor success and was able to tour with some of the biggest names in the mid-1980s before disbanding. The band managed to be signed to the label that made Quiet Riot headliners, but was never able to match the same level of stardom.

The band's classic line-up was George Criston (real name George Widule from Waukesha, WI) (vocals), Brian Gillstrom (drums, percussion), Victor Langen (bass guitar), Larry Gillstrom (guitar) and Raymond Harvey (guitar). For their last album, Kick Axe returned without singer George Criston, but instead with its original (before the band's commercial debut) singer Gary Langen.

Kick Axe's greatest hits include "Vices", "Alive and KickinĀ“", "Heavy Metal Shuffle", "Stay on Top", "On the Road to Rock", "Welcome to the Club", "Make Your Move", "Rock the World" and the ballad "Never Let Go".
