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

Adam Rifkin: [Blump's] Rifkin uses products and services using the Blump's name in each film. This first appeared in The Dark Backward so as to not have any current-day products in the film (to impart a sense of timelessness). Numerous items in The Dark Backward were products of "Blump's Industries", which was invented for the film. See more »
In the concert scene, when Jam jumps up to catch Peter Criss's drumstick, he already has one of his drumsticks in his right hand. However, when he catches Peter's, he catches it with his right hand. See more »

The DVD edition of the film retains more footage not seen in theaters. These scenes are:
A longer scene in the car when Lin Shaye and Sam Huntington are driving to St. Bernards Academy.
Longer scene on the highway which Natasha Lyonne and her clan is introduced. It runs about 3-5 minutes longer.
A longer scene of the opening to which the four boys are singing "Rock N Roll All Nite"
Longer confessional scene with Melanie Lynski and Sam Huntington.
Longer scene with "Elvis", the custodian.
Longer scene with Shannon Tweed and Edward Furlong.
At least four alternate takes of the final concert scene.
Hilarious...not a brainy or brilliant picture but it carries some off-the-wall moments that make it all worthwhile. The dialogue is unflinchingly crude and certain scenes will just catch you off-guard...definately worth your time. Don't worry if you aren't into KISS...it's more about their journey TO the concert.
