"Detroit Rock City" as written by Paul Stanley and Robert A. Ezrin....
I feel uptight on a Saturday night
Nine o' clock, the radio's the only light
I hear my song and it pulls me through
Comes on strong, tells me what I got to do
I got to

Get up
Everybody's gonna move their feet
Get down
Everybody's gonna leave their seat
You gotta lose your mind in Detroit Rock City

Get up
Everybody's gonna move their feet
Get down
Everybody's gonna leave their seat

Getting late
I just can't wait
Ten o'clock and I know I gotta hit the road
First I drink, then I smoke
Start the car, and I try to make the midnight show

Get up
Everybody's gonna move their feet
Get down
Everybody's gonna leave their seat

Movin' fast, doin' ninety five
Hit top speed but I'm still movin' much too slow
I feel so good, I'm so alive
I hear my song playin' on the radio
It goes

Get up
Everybody's gonna move their feet
Get down
Everybody's gonna leave their seat

Twelve o'clock, I gotta rock
There's a truck ahead, lights starin' at my eyes
Oh my God, no time to turn
I got to laugh 'cause I know I'm gonna die
Why

Get up
Everybody's gonna move their feet
Get up
Everybody's gonna leave their seat

    General CommentThis is one of the worst bands ever. Kiss are terrible sonwriters, terrible guitar players, peter criss is a terrible drummer. they have 30 of the most terrible albums ever made. they are terrible actors(because their songs suck, so they try to act, but they suck at acting too), they try to act satanic, but they cant even do that right. their singing is terrible. their overratedness is terrible. just everything about them is terrible, they're terrible artists!

    General CommentPhiladelphia Eagles ok its youre opinion ,KISS are classical along with the sex pistols , acdc ,black sabbath, cream ,the cramps etc. i suppose compared to the music now kiss aren't as good but it doesn't mean they aren't awsome not compared. peter criss is not a bad drummer, and i like paul stanley's voice also in my opinion out of the whole kninghts is satans service i think paul's (star child)and ace's (space-ace)make up is the best.. did you know gene simmons acted in "The New Guy" i found that interesting.. it doesn't even look like himself from the good days.Also the movie was soo great... the bass player in the movie is so awsome aswell as the song they play at the start "rock n roll all nite".
    (Youre clothes say stella but youre eyes say rock n roll) anyway good band great movie
