The most common nickname for this Ayrshire club is Killie, which probably needs no explanation, or the more moderate Knock. The song "Paper Roses", originally a hit for American singer and political activist Anita Bryant, has been adopted by the club's fans as their anthem. The club has a long-standing rivalry with Ayr United, another club from the same town, whom it has met 256 times and won 189 of those. The first derby was played in 1910. Ayr United, however, currently play one level lower in the competition.
