God Gave Rock And Roll To You II

Russ Ballard, Paul Stanley, Gene Simmons, Bob Ezrin

This track was simply a remix of the 1991 recording. According to Gene, "'God Gave...' is the first track we cut for out next album with Bob Ezrin. The rest is smokin'!" (KISS Crazy #11). That the song had already been released on an album was a moot point to Gene who commented, "We liked the song and wanted to put it on our record because KISS fans would like the song - so why shouldn't they find it on a KISS album rather than another company's record?" (Kerrang #392). During the promotion of the movie song and single the band would use the piece as a pointer to the direction that they were going to be taking on the album. Paul was less enamored with the inclusion of the song on the "Revenge" album commenting, "It's not one of the strongest tracks on the album. It's a good track, but there's stuff on the album that leaves it in the dust" (Kerrang #377). However, since the song had been a massive hit in Britain, it is likely that it was hoped that a second chance might also help the success of the album.
