From the second that bass line starts, you can’t help but love this song. Sure, it was written by Paul Stanley to prove how easy it was to write a disco hit, but forget that “d” word. This is a kickass heavy metal song, man. It’s just so over the top.
The video has much to offer: the platform shoes, a hairy-chested Paul Stanley, Ace’s glittering holographic guitar. But the best part by far is Gene’s bass solo when he looks down the barrel of the camera like he’s gonna kill just by thinking about the A string. And then he licks it. Oh yeah.
The song was #1 in Australia in 1979 but only got to #11 on the US chart.
