Baseball Tunes: Detroit Rock City
"Detroit Rock City" was the third single released from Kiss's 1976 album Destroyer. While the single did not sell well initially, the long-term legacy is a strong one. VH1 featured it at #6 on their Greatest Metal Songs countdown. Baseball's Detroit Tigers often uses the song at the beginning of games as the team takes the field. Hockey's Red Wings also make frequent use of the tune.
