March 21, 2022

Today’s song of the day is an American hard rock song, “Rock And Roll All Nite,” by Kiss.

Fun Facts:

  • The song was initially released on Kiss’s third studio album Dressed to Kill in 1975.
  • It was later released as a single, which propelled the song to the 69th spot on Billboard’s singles chart. The single’s B-track was “Getaway,” another song from their Dressed to Kill album.
  • Towards the end of 1975, a live version of the hit was released as a single to even greater success, peaking at number 12 on Billboard.
  • The popularity of “Rock And Roll All Nite” began a period of notable success in Kiss’s career. The hit was the first of theirs to break the Billboard Top 20, after which the band would go on to have another five Top 20 songs in the 1970s: “Beth” (1976), “Hard Luck Woman” (1976), “Calling Dr. Love” (1976), “ACE: New York Groove” (1978), and “I Was Made For Lovin’ You” (1979).
  • “Rock And Roll All Nite” quickly became the band’s signature song and has been their closing number for nearly every live performance since 1976.
  • In 2008, VH1 listed the song as the 16th greatest hard rock song of all time. (For those curious, the number one song was “Welcome To The Jungle” by Guns N’ Roses!)

You show us everything you’ve got

You keep on dancin’ and the room gets hot

You drive us wild, we’ll drive you crazy

You say you wanna go for a spin

The party’s just begun, we’ll let you in

You drive us wild, we’ll drive you crazy

You keep on shoutin’, you keep on shoutin’

I wanna rock and roll all night and party every day

I wanna rock and roll all night and party every day

I wanna rock and roll all night and party every day

I wanna rock and roll all night and party every day

You keep on saying you’ll be mine for a while

You’re lookin’ fancy and I like your style

You drive us wild, we’ll drive you crazy

You show us everything you’ve got

Baby, baby that’s quite a lot

And you drive us wild, we’ll drive you crazy

You keep on shoutin’, you keep on shoutin’

I wanna rock and roll all night and party every day

I wanna rock and roll all night and party every day

I wanna rock and roll all night and party every day

I wanna rock and roll all night and party every day

I wanna rock and roll all night and party every day

I wanna rock and roll all night and party every day

I wanna rock and roll all night and party every day

I wanna rock and roll all night and party every day
