Product Description

Amazon.ca

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

4.0 out of 5 stars Great album soundtrack,but not 5 stars June 20 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
The reason for my title is that some of the remakes absolutely suck. Marilyn Manson's cover of "Highway To Hell" is just noise. Drain sth's cover of "20th Century Boy" blows,and The Donnas' remake of KISS' "Strutter" is pitiful. The only half-decent covers are Pantera's take on Nugent's "Cat Scratch Fever" & Everclear's remake of "The Boys Are Back In Town". Some of the highlights on this cd are: "Runnin' With The Devil", "Iron Man", "Surrender", "School Days", and of course, KISS' songs. And KISS tries do copy Aerosmith & have Diane Warren write a ballad for them. Warren wrote Aerosmith's HUGE hit "I Don't Want To Miss A Thing" for the Armaggdeon soundtrack. Well, "Nothing Can Keep Me From You" doesn't stack up. Don't get me wrong,it's a good song,but I've had my fill of Paul Stanley ballads. But then again KISS isn't Aerosmith. (I say this being a die-hard KISS fan for 21 years;so don't think I'm bad-mouthing KISS.They're just different bands).

5.0 out of 5 stars I love the movie, and now love the Soundtrack. Aug. 6 2003
By HBN
Format:Audio CD
The day started out when I was in a local music store. I was ready than ever to become broke like I always do, when I ran across my favorite movie's soundtrack in the Used CD section. Most of the songs at the time before I bought the cd, were still not ringing a bell. However tracks like Running With The Devil, Ironman, Cat Stratch Fever, and Surrender made this cd a must have, so being the person I am, I said ILL BUY IT! I love Detroit Rock City so much, the movie is the funniest movie of all time, and the soundtrack follows behind it with great classic tracks! Pantera's version of Cat Stratch Fever is awesome! Pantera rocks, and their re-make for the soundtrack is better than the original in my opinion. KISS, Van Halen, Cheap Trick, Blach Sabbeth, and more classic bands hit off on this cd with a BOOM.
With a lot of reviewers hitting negativly with KISS putting popular songs by them, that have been around for a long time, but WHY BLAME THEM? KISS is the reason this great movie was made! Screw the Negative reviews, pick this cd up if you are a DRC fan!
1. Boys Are Back in Town - Everclear (9/10)-Good remake of the song.
2. Shout It out Loud - Kiss (9/10)-A perfect KISS Classic
3. Runnin' With the Devil - Van Halen (10/10)- One of the best classic songs of all time.
4. Cat Scratch Fever - Pantera (10/10)- Better than the original
5. Iron Man - Black Sabbath (10/10)- Excellent
6. Highway to Hell - Marilyn Manson (7.5/10)- They could have picked someone else for this remake, but its an ok song.
7. 20th Century Boy - Drain S.T.H. (5/10) - Too slow, and boring. SKIP THIS
8. Detroit Rock City - Kiss (10/10)- Name of the movie,and Name of a GREAT Song.
9. Jailbreak - Thin Lizzy (10/10)-Another great song for this ST
10.

I'll start off by saying that I'm not a KISS fan at all, and I stand by that statement. However, I thought the movie, Detroit Rock City, was a great, hilarious film that anyone could enjoy whether they were a KISS fan or not. The same pretty much goes for this soundtrack which is more of a compilation disc of hard rock/metal from the film's era, but what sets it above being a compilation is the featured cover songs. Pantera's version of Ted Nugent's "Cat Scratch Fever" is a blistering balls to the wall cover that excels above all the other covers on here. Everclear's version of Thin Lizzy's "The Boys Are Back in Town" isn't all that different from the original version but still rocks. Drain S.T.H.'s version of "20th Century Boy" is pretty good, but what disappoints me the most is Marilyn Manson's cover of AC/DC's "Highway to Hell". Nobody does cover songs better than Manson, and his industrial/goth themed take on the song isn't good at all, and the song just ends up dragging along. Other than that we get some of the popular singles from Van Halen, Black Sabbath, David Bowie, Thin Lizzy, and Cheap Trick among others, plus there are two "classic" KISS songs and a closing new track from KISS to round this soundtrack out. All in all, whether your a KISS fan or not, you'll find something to like about this collection.

4.0 out of 5 stars very good soundtrack Oct. 28 1999
By A Customer
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.
