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

Although he only had a cameo, James De Bello also appeared with Natasha Lyonne in American Pie the same year. See more »

[after Jam's mom finds the Kiss record]
Man, I was afraid some bullshit like this was gonna happen. If Jam misses Peter Criss's drum solo, he won't be able to continue with his fucking life!
Lex! Quit Jynxing us man! No one is missing that concert tomorrow night!

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.
