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 »

Okay, dope-burnout, let's get one thing straight, here. As far as I'm concerned, good tunes is good tunes. Be it disco or rock, or polka, or whatever have you, regardless of the category. Disco is just easier to dance to.

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 »
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.
Detroit Rock City Is a very weel made comedy film,that gives the audience EXTREMELY good laughs,first rate acting,and an original script.Four teens lose they're concert tickets to go see Kiss,so they win a contest on the radio.Then they go drive to Detroit for the concert.Not much to say about this film,but I guarantee that it is a great movie to watch.There is only two small flaw in Detroit Rock City,and that flaw is that it didnt seem long enough,and that the ending seemed like it was an easy way to end the movie.One last thing,some of the lines in this film was damn FUNNY.Detroit Rock City is a great movie to watch.8 out of 10.
