Rock And Roll Demons

Bob Ezrin, Paul Stanley, Gene Simmons

This unlisted track is generally referred to as "Rock And Roll Party" and is something of a teaser. On at least one acetate it's titled "Rock And Roll Demons." It concludes the album with a bit of audio illustration similar to the storyline introduction of "Detroit Rock City." As was the case with the audio narrative and story in the introduction to "Detroit Rock City," this piece was the work of Bob Ezrin who spliced one of Paul's raps from the "Alive!" album and looped it. He'd overlay aural effects from the choir on "Great Expectations."

There wasn't much reasoning behind the creation of the piece. According to Bob Ezrin, "It was necessary to round off the experience if you were listening to the album from top to bottom and that you really needed something to close the book" (KISS Online w/ Bob Ezrin). Paul has also suggested that the piece was created because the album felt too short and "Bob was trying to think of a way to extend the album, because as good as it was, it was short... We needed to fill up the record" (Firehouse #58).
