Ask anyone who grew up in the 1970s and they'll tell you: hard rock ain't what it used to be. Need proof? Compare the real thing and their '90s counterparts on this soundtrack from a movie about four kids trying to sneak into a sold-out Kiss concert. Kiss contributes the title track and "Shout It Out Loud", two prime blasts of 1976 hard rock. The Donnas can only copy the painted ones' "Strutter"; Everclear cruises by the numbers through Thin Lizzy's "The Boys Are Back in Town", while Pantera traces Ted Nugent's "Cat Scratch Fever". When Marilyn Manson attempts to put its own stamp on AC/DC's "Highway to Hell", the results are pretentious and boring, lacking all the kinetic excitement of the original. If the truth be told, nearly all the highlights are the original songs: Van Halen's goofy yet dexterous "Runnin' with the Devil", Black Sabbath's rumbling "Iron Man", Cheap Trick's masterfully silly call to arms "Surrender", and Thin Lizzy's deadly and virile "Jailbreak". No matter what technological advances you make, you can't beat a genre in its prime. --Rob O'Connor

The review by Amazon defies reason. Overflowing with life, this album brings all the bombast and force of rock 'n' roll to the surface. Despite the fact that it is based on a 'KISS Movie', Kiss contributes a mere three of the fifteen tracks. Many old rock classics such as Black Sabbath's menacing Iron Man make it to the record. Nearly every song on the album smokes. Everclear's take on The Boys Are Back In Town is a nice party number to kicks things in action to prepare the listener for KISS as they 'bring the house down' with the adrenaline-charged Shout It Out Loud before Van Halen sets Hell on fire with Runnin' With The Devil. Pantera growl and snarl their way through an electrifying Cat Scratch Fever, with all the teeth and bite of Ted Nugent's original. Black Sabbath pounds through Iron Man before Marilyn Manson brings on sonic innovation and a fresh breath of life to light up 'Highway To Hell' in a version that far out-strips it's original. Drain play a scintillating Twentieth Century Boy to give way to the super-charged crunch of Detroit Rock City. Thin Lizzy are up next, breaking down the house with Jailbreak before the listener gives in to Cheap Trick's Surrender- one of history's greatest cruise songs. David Bowe lets the pace down a little with Rebel Rebel, and the Donnas fail to touch the heels of the original Strutter, but both still kick ass. The Runaways heat things up again with School Days before Sweet brings on the wonderful and jingley Willy to prepare the listener for the rather sour last track. While Shout It Loud and Detroit Rock City proved some of the best of this great album, this last track is enough to keep any listener at bay. It was intended to be the same kind of hit as Aerosmith's I Don't Want To Miss A Thing (also written by Diane Warren).Read more ›

i just have to say that i am a fan of old music, and they should have put blitzkreig bob on the soundtrack, but other than that, WOWOWOWOWOW, i mean not just saying this, i LOVED THE MOVIE! LOOOOOVVVVEEDDD, but being the fan of old rock and punk music i am, i have to say, the music just MADE the movie whole. What a great selection. and they also should have put fox on the run, i mean this whole thing when Lex is running away, thye missed all that good music!

this was the soundtrack of the film. However the songs here are remakes for some reason. The real movie had the runaways and other great bands. This is ok though. and does have a kiss ballad. (one of their weaker though.). Still the cd is a must for kiss fans and if you are collecting this band you need it. or a download of it these days I guess. The movie was ok, this is less than the movie.

Well, as an older rocker (37) from California, loved the movie, but....what happened to this CD? Ted Nugent, now ehre in sight, except for the redo of his Cat Scratch fever by Pantera! Come on only Ted can do his song! Marilyn Manson doing ACDC's Highway to Hell, another repo disaster! Anyway, they should have kept to the original masters of their own music, the rest is fine BECAUSE it is original songs WITH original bands! UHHHHH! Totally bypass....

The Way the Soundrack SHOULD Be 10 Jan. 2006
By J. Darwin - Published on
Format: Audio CD
I give this soundtrack 2 stars because it still has some great songs on it. However, whoever compiled it did two things wrong: 1) The left off so many other great songs from the movie, and 2) They have covers of these classic songs instead of the originals? For shame. Well, and also because they have Marilyn Manson doing ANYTHING at all. Someone who sucks as bad as him should not even be allowed in the same room as ACDC, much less allowed to cover their song. Anyway, if you ask me, the soundtrack should read as follows:

"Love Gun" by KISS
"Funk #49" by the James Gang
"Lights Out" by UFO
"Little Willy" by Sweet
"School Days" by the Runaways
"Jailbreak" by Thin Lizzy
"Shout It Out Loud" by KISS
"Frankenstein" by Edgar Winter Group
"The Boys Are Back In Town" by Thin Lizzy
"Rock & Roll All Nite" by KISS
"Iron Man" by Black Sabbath
"Problem Child" by ACDC
"Surrender" by Cheap Trick
"I Wanna Be Sedated" by the Ramones
"Highway to Hell" by ACDC
"Godzilla" by Blue Oyster Cult
"Fox On the Run" by Sweet
"Strutter" by KISS
"Blitzkrieg Bop" by the Ramones
"Calling Dr. Love" by KISS
"Come Sail Away" by Styx
"Whole Lotta Rosie" by ACDC
"Love Hurts" by Nazareth
"Running With the Devil" by Van Halen
"Detroit Rock City" by KISS

Write this list down and download the songs this way. It's so so so much better. The actual soundtrack that plays during the movie, I give 5 stars.

The Actual Soundtrack 27 May 2007
By T. Kelly - Published on
Format: Audio CD
I agree with the other reviewers who note that the soundtrack was missing most of the great songs from the movie. Reviewer J. Darwin listed a very impressive soundtrack listing which captures nearly all of the great rock songs from the film. I took on the challenge of capturing virtually all of the songs played during the movie, in the order that they appear. This includes background song clips on the radio, that were confirmed in the closing credits. Here goes:

I Stole Your Love -- KISS

Rock & Roll All Night -- MYSTERY

Love Gun -- KISS

Cat Scratch Fever -- TED NUGENT

20th Century Boy -- T-REX

Funk No. 49 -- JAMES GANG

Conjunction Junction -- BOB DOROUGH

Ladies Room -- KISS

Lights Out -- UFO

Little Willy -- SWEET

School Days -- THE RUNAWAYS

Jailbreak -- THIN LIZZY

Shout It Out Loud -- KISS



Wild and Hot -- ANGEL

The Boys Are Back In Town -- THIN LIZZY



Problem Child -- AC/DC

Christine Sixteen -- KISS

Turn To Stone -- ELO

Surrender -- CHEAP TRICK

I Wanna Be Sedated -- THE RAMONES

Escape (The Pina Colada Song) -- RUPERT HOLMES

Highway To Hell -- AC/DC

Black Magic Woman -- SANTANA

Every 1's a Winner -- HOT CHOCOLATE

Rebel Rebel -- DAVID BOWIE

Convoy -- WC McCALL

Shock Me -- KISS


Fox On the Run -- SWEET

Boogie Shoes -- KC & THE SUNSHINE BAND

Strutter -- KISS

Blitzkreig Bop -- THE RAMONES

Popcorn -- HOT BUTTER

Beth -- KISS


Muskrat Love -- CAPTAIN & TENNILLE

Calling Dr. Love -- KISS

Come Sail Away -- STYX

Rock Your Baby -- GEORGE McCRAE

Whole Lotta Rosie -- AC/DC

Love Hurts -- NAZARETH

Runnin' With the Devil -- VAN HALEN

Love To Love -- UFO

Detroit Rock City (Live) -- KISS

The Boys Are Back In Town -- EVERCLEAR

Highway To Hell -- MARILYN MANSON

Nothing Can Keep Me From You -- KISS

There you have it. 51 songs. "Love Gun" by Kiss appears a second time in the movie just before the 8-Track tape gets creamed on the Interstate. There is a song playing in the Radio Station elevator as the guys go to pick up their tickets that I can't make out, so that is missing. I also replaced Mystery with Kiss on "Rock & Roll All Night". My 3-CD set of the true soundtrack is complete. Great movie. If you're up to the challenge, make that true soundtrack!! Rock on.

very good soundtrack 28 Oct. 1999
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Audio CD
The DETROIT ROCK CITY soundtrack features mostly good stuff. 3 KISS tracks, a cover of KISS's Strutter, some original recordings from the original artists of the 70's, and some covers of 70's songs. The new KISS track is great. Everclear's cover of Thin Lizzy's "The Boys Are Back In Town" sounds very good too as well as Pantera's cover of Ted Nugent's Cat Scratch Fever. Other highlights include the original recordings of Running with the Devil from Van Halen, Iron Man from Black Sabbath, Jailbreak from Thin Lizzy, a live version of Surrender from Cheap Trick as well as others. For me, the worst downside was Marilyn Manson's horrible cover of AC DC's Highway to Hell. The song should have been left alone and AC DC's version should have been on the record. Manson turns it very techno and it is hardly recognizable to people who like the original version. Aside from that, there are a few other imperfections although not as great as the Manson song. The KISS cover sounds a little weird. The music on it is good and anybody who knows Strutter will recognize it right away. But the vocals sound strange. Songs like Little Willy and School Days don't fit in that great either but it could just be my opinion. But all in all, it is a good CD, especially for a soundtrack.

This is the best soundtrack I have ever heard!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 10 Aug. 1999
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Audio CD
This is an amazing cd. A few songs are not up to par with the others they are still good though. Everclear starts it off hard with their rendition of the boys are back in town and KISS follows with shout it out loud then enter Van Halen with their classic runnin' with the devil only to be upstaged by Pantera's rippin' rendition of Ted Nudgent's classic cat scratch fever and Black Sabbath keeps up the rockin' with their all time coolest song iron man. Then enter Marilyn Manson with his interesting cover of the AC/DC classic highway to hell. Then the album takes a dive with the not so good DRAIN sth cover of 20th century boy but then KISS makes up for it with the title track detroit rock city. Thin Lizzy then comes up to bat with jailbreak (which is an enjoyable tune) followed by A live version of Cheap Trick doing surrender. David Bowie comes up with rebel rebel (one of my favorites I might add) followed by The Donnas doing a rockin' cover of KISS's strutter. The Runaways follow up with school days and then Sweet does the catchy classic little willy. And closing it all up is KISS with the new single nothing can keep me from you which, while very un-KISS like, is pretty good in my opinion. The only thing I don't like is they chose not to put the KISS classic rock and roll all night on it, yet despite that it is the best soundtrack I have ever heard, and I've heard a lot. I strongly suggest you buy this soundtrack.

Awsome, but could be better 11 April 2000
By Raven Aeris - Published on
Format: Audio CD
This CD, in its whole is a bunch of 70's rock covers. However, most of them are pretty good. Pantera did a superb job with the 'Nuge's Cat Scratch Fever, Everclear, running away with one of the best song on this CD. However, Manson screwed it all up with the horrible job of AC/DC's Highway to Hell, which is the album's only sour note. But, the orginal hits are still on here. The best being Van Halen's Runnin With The Devil. KISS also chipped in a good new song. However, it was too mellow to satisfy me. But, that is just my opinion. However, if you want a good rock CD, then this one is it.
