Kiss' "Rock And Roll All Nite" One of Ten Great Rock Songs About Rock And Roll

Hail Hail Rock’n’Roll: 10 Great Rock Songs about Rock and Roll“Rock and Roll All Nite” – Kiss

It’s no wonder that this song, from Kiss’s 1975 Dressed to Kill album, is often called the “Rock and Roll National Anthem.” Paul Stanley once explained its genesis to writer Bruce Pollock: “'Rock and Roll All Nite' came about because we felt we needed an anthem,” Stanley said, “a song that could be the rallying cry for all of our fans. So I went back to the hotel and came up with the chorus and the melody. Then I went down to see Gene and he came up with the verses.” The song was also partly inspired by Slade’s “Cum on Feel the Noize.”
