Plot

Trip, Lex, Hawk, and Jam are four teenagers living in Cleveland during 1978, who would do anything to see Kiss. They have tickets to see the band in Detroit, but Jam's mother hates Kiss, She thinks they are devil worshippers and that KISS stands for "Knights In Satan's Service." Jam's mother finds their Kiss tickets, and humiliates him in front of the whole school by burning them. This leaves the boys in a state of shock. Jam's mom then places him in a Catholic school upstate. Kiss is an American rock band formed in New York City in 1971. ...


The three remaining friends form a plan to get Trip out of class, so he can call a contest line to try to win tickets. They win the tickets, and then they ditch school to bust Jam out of the Catholic school. They place hallucinogenic psilocybin mushrooms on a priest's pizza so he is too high to notice that Jam is gone. Look up high in Wiktionary, the free dictionary. ...


On the road, Trip throws a slice of pizza out of the window after dropping it on himself. It hits the car (a 1978 Pontiac Firebird Trans-Am) of some disco-loving "guidos" and their "stellas", one of whom pulls in front of them and stops, gets out, and smashes Hawk's face in the pizza on the Windshield. Hawk knocks the guy to the ground after he destroys their 8-track of the Kiss album Love Gun. The other guido guy tries to negotiate a compromise, but they beat him down and leave the car that the guidos were driving in a ditch. The guidos awake from a daze and find that they are chained to a guard rail, and their faces are painted to look like Kiss members. Christine, who walked away from the fight between Hawk and the guido, is walking down the road and the boys decide to give her a ride. While in the car, she and Hawk have an argument. After they stop fighting, Trip lights up a joint and passes it to Christine, who later passes out and is left in the car when they reach Detroit. The Pontiac Firebird was a pony car built by the Pontiac division of General Motors between 1967 and 2002. ...

When they get to Detroit, they find out that Trip did not stay on the phone long enough to give the radio station his information, forcing the station to give the tickets to the next caller. Lex notices that their car has been stolen, and they suspect Christine, who they left in the car. The boys go their separate ways in order to find Kiss tickets, and agree to meet in the same place later. Lex sneaks into the loading crew to help set up the concert, and eventually find himself using a group of junkyard dogs to help get his car back, and save Christine from possible rape by the chop shop guys who stole the car. Meanwhile, Hawk winds up dancing naked for money at a strip club. Trip goes into a gas station to find a small kid to mug for ticket money and is confronted by the boy's older brother. Trip tries to pay them so they don't mug him. Trip decides to rob the store to get the money to pay the kid, but another man beats him to it. Trip gets the robber on the floor and saves the store. Jam, whose mother finds him walking in front of her anti-Kiss rally, drags him to a church across the street. Jam's lover sees that he has gone into the church and follows him. They end up hooking up in the confessional booth, and then Jam goes back to the rally. He gets mad, really angry and most of all yells and curses his mother and asks for his drumsticks, only to get one of them back (the other one being broken in half, most definitely by his mother in protest). When the boys meet up again, none of them have had any luck getting tickets, so Jam decides that they should beat each other up and say that muggers took their tickets. They do so, and upon arrival at the concert, they tell the guards that they were mugged by four people. The guards don't believe them, so Trip tells the guards that it was the people that beat him up before, who are just now entering the concert hall. The guard finds Trip's wallet in the jock's pocket and hands him the tickets. In the concert, Gene Simmons blows fire and spits blood, Paul Stanley sings his heart out and smashes his guitar, Ace Frehley's guitar smokes and Peter Criss throws his drumstick into the crowd, when Jam, jumping up, catches, making up for the one that his mother broke. The song KISS plays is the title song of the movie, "Detroit Rock City."

Factual inaccuracies

  • At beggening of the movie, where "I Stole Your Love" (Side A) was played on the record player by mistake, once it got turned off, it was on Side B...not A
  • The concert is supposed to take place on Friday, October the 13th, 1978 at 8:00pm at Cobo Hall. However Kiss did not play at Cobo in October.
  • Some songs in the movie were not released until later periods of times, such as David Naughton's "Makin' It" (the disco song the "guidos" and the "stellas" on the highway were listening to) which was released early 1979, and the AC/DC song "Highway To Hell", which was also released in 1979. However, the latter served only as ironic background music and was most likely not intended to be diegetic.
  • The guys drive into Detroit via the Belle Isle bridge. Belle Isle is an island in the middle of the Detroit river.
  • In fact, in early 1978, Kiss played several shows in Cleveland, so the whole ordeal could have been avoided.

Year 1978 (MCMLXXVIII) was a common year starting on Sunday (link displays the 1978 Gregorian calendar). ... Cobo Hall, officially Cobo Conference/Exhibition Center, is a convention center situated in downtown Detroit, Michigan, USA. It is named for Albert E. Cobo, mayor of Detroit from 1950 to 1957. ...

Miscellaneous

  • Kiss reenacted the Love Gun/Alive II tour (See Kiss Tours) for the end of the movie, which included 8,000 fans serving as extras.
  • Many of the Kiss collector's items were from Gene Simmons' own collection.
  • The girls' names, Beth and Christine, are references to the Kiss songs "Beth" and "Christine Sixteen".
  • The first protesting mother outside the Kiss concert, the woman with brown curly hair, was Paul Stanley's own wife. The pair divorced in 2001.
  • Director Adam Rifkin has used the Blumps restaurant in every one of his movies. The old woman pictured in the Blumps logo is Rifkin's grandmother.
  • Shannon Tweed, who portrays the lady that picks up Hawk in the bar, is Gene Simmons' long-time partner. The couple have two kids together, Nick and Sophie.
  • At the start of the movie when you hear the guys playing "Rock and Roll All Nite", the music you hear is actually performed by the four actors.
  • In the Mystery band logo, the S is the same design as the lightning bolt S's from the KISS logo. It also closely resembles that of the skateboard company, Mystery.
  • Each one of the boys mirrors a member of Kiss. They even end up with the women befitting of their counterparts. Hawk is like Paul Stanley and gets the supermodel. Trip is like Ace Frehley and gets the spacey girl. Jam is Peter Criss and gets Beth (Beth is a popular song sung by Criss). Lex is like Gene Simmons and gets Christine. Besides "Christine Sixteen" being one of Gene Simmons' most popular songs, Gene also dated Cher in the late seventies, which might explain why Christine is a disco stella.
  • The external Detroit scenes were shot in Toronto in October 1998 at the corner of King and Church Streets. The church is St. James Cathedral, Toronto (west façade) and the strip club entrance was in a parking lot SW of the intersection (the entrance was a false door). The finale before the concert when the four run together is in the middle of the intersection of King and Church - note the TTC tracks!
  • The announcer in the strip club is famous porn star Ron Jeremy.
  • Even though the film is suppose to take place in Detroit, the concert scenes were shot in Hamilton, Ontario at Copps Coliseum and some of the highway scenes were shot using Highway 407 in the Burlington/Oakville area.
  • (quotes from the scene after picking up Christine)
Christine: Hey, you know what? Disco's so fucking big right now, I wouldn't be surprised if Kiss did a disco song.
Lex: Man, if there's one thing Kiss will never do, it is a bullshit disco song.
Jam: No shit man!
Trip: Yeah man. Disco blows dogs for quarters man!
Ironically, Kiss would release a "disco" song, I Was Made for Lovin' You (from Dynasty), in 1979 (which would be one year after the movie took place).
  • When Trip defeats the shoplifter, he says his name is Dr. Love, which is a song Kiss wrote, "Calling Dr. Love" from their album Rock and Roll Over.
  • A few fans, that were supposed to be extras for the Kiss concert, dressed up as Dynasty era Kiss, which, of course, would affect the continuity of the film. They were escorted off the set. (Dynasty was released in 1979. The concert at the end of the movie was still part of the Love Gun/Alive II tour.)
