Ask anyone who grew up in the '70s 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

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.

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.

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 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.
