Today in KISStory - 1975


Today in KISStory - 1975
'Rock and Roll All Nite' is released as a single.


"Rock and Roll All Nite" is a song by Kiss, often seen as a classic rock anthem, originally released on their 1975 album Dressed to Kill. It was released as the A-side of their fifth single, with the album track "Getaway." The studio version of the song peaked at #57 on the Billboard singles chart, besting the band's previous charting single, "Kissin' Time" (#79). A subsequent live version released as a single in October 1975, eventually reached #12, the first of six Top 20 songs for Kiss in the 1970s. Since then, it has become Kiss's most identifiable song, and has served as one of the group's closing concert numbers in almost every concert since 1976.

In 2009 it was named the 16th greatest hard rock song of all time by VH1.
