SONGS I LIKE -BY ARTISTS I DON’T- ‘ ROCK AND ROLL ALL NITE’

Songs I like- by Artists I Don’t- ‘Rock and Roll All Nite”-by Kiss. I have no use for this group- 99% make up 1% talent. They are playing tonight in nearby Pittsburgh- I wouldn’t walk across the street to see them even if they paid me. But- I do like two Kiss related songs- from back in the late 70’s when they released their solo albums- on the same day- Ace Frehley’s “New York Groove”- I still have the single I bought and the album I later bought from the $1 bin at a department store named Harts.

Rock And Roll All Nite- is probably Kiss’s signature song- it is [from what I have read] their concert closer over the years. It was first released as a single in 1975 and only went to #68- that was the studio version- later in the year they released a live version of the song and it took off- peaking at #12.

  1. Got to disagree on this one. Kiss is a gateway band for many a young rock and roller. I totally agree their output is patchy and even as a fan I’d admit there’s more dross than good stuff by now. The commercialism is the antithesis of rock and roll but when all said and done they have enough great stuff to make one heck of a best of album. It’s just a pity they keep repackaging it.

  2. I guess I am an example of someone who Kiss was a gateway for. I loved them when I was 12 or 13. Was my first concert – I loved the spectacle. But then moved on about the time of their “disco” phase with I was made for loving you”. Went back and few years ago to see what they had done after that. Would have to say their “peak” was Love Gun. Did like Ace Frehleys solo record. But the concept album? And their grunge phase?? And agree the endless repacking – Gene Simmons trying to squeeze every dollar he can out of it
