Four members of a high school band called Mystery do everything they can to attend a KISS concert in Detroit. In order to make it to the show they must steal, cheat, strip, deal with an anti-rock mom and generally do whatever it takes to see the band that has inspired them to be musicians. Written by

The four youthful leads themselves are in a garage band called "Mystery". The "S" in the "Mystery" logo is a lightning bolt from the KISS logo. See more »
When the boys go to the ticket-taker, and Jam says "Are you f***ing kidding me?", he motions to the boys with his hand, and we can see that his knuckles are cut and bloody from beating up the other boys. But, if they were just mugged, his knuckles wouldn't be bloodied up. See more »

My summary says it all. This movie did rock! It had funny characters, a funny story and an awesome soundtrack, especially Van Halen's Runnin' with the Devil.
The story is set in Cleveland, 1978. Four boys, Hawk, Jam, Lex and Trip who are part of a rock band named Mystery which is modeled after their favorite band, KISS. They bought tickets to see them and go on a road trip to Detroit and get into many misadventures dealing with an angry mother, some tough jocks, some disco freaks, a stolen car and an attempt to win money.
This movie was Eddie Furlong's second best(T2 was the first) and it was a takeoff for the other guys. The only thing I would've changed was the mood, it seemed just a little dark for my taste but it was still an awesome movie. 9/10
