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

In the original script, there was a scene where Hawk confessed to Amanda that he never knew his mother, because she died while giving birth to him. This could possibly be why he yells at Trip and Lex for making fun of each other's mothers in the beginning of the movie. See more »
When Jam's mom is handing him the K-Mart box, he is holding drum sticks in his right hand and in another shot his hands are empty. When the box is shown again, he is holding the sticks. See more »
It's a teenage girl walking along the side of the highway. I mean, they, they, they make scary movies that start out like that.
Hey, but, but they make porno movies that start out like that too, man.

After the credits are over, two kids from a previous scene come on screen and say, "We don't have any KISS tickets." "Yeah, KISS sucks!" See more »
I liked detroit rock city for one reason and one reason only. I am a metal fan and this movie brought to the big screen the adrenalin fueled craziness that is Kiss and hard rock music in general. Anybody looking for "depth" in this, has the wrong movie. I like all types of movies and sometimes I like my movies deep. But not all the time. Sometimes I want to smile. Sometimes I want to be entertained. This movie does that and it does that well.
I think the bottom line is, if you are a Kiss fan or fan of hard rock in general you will love this. If you are not such a fan, but still open to movies where the sole purpose is to entertain you may like it. But if you hate Kiss or have no interest in their type of music in general your more likely to have no particular interest in this. Me, I thought it was great! Kiss forever! Rock and Roll all night!
