Detroit Rock City script
Synopsis: Rock-loving teens and aspiring musicians Hawk (Edward Furlong), Lex (Giuseppe Andrews), Trip (James DeBello) and Jam (Sam Huntington) can't wait to see their favorite band, KISS, perform at an upcoming concert. However, when Jam's pious mother (Lin Shaye) finds the tickets to the event, she incinerates them, leaving the boys desperate for a way to see the show. In their attempts to see KISS, the lads endure misunderstandings, humiliation and violence, all just to see their beloved idols.


Thank you, Cleveland! You're a great

crowd. But after three and a half

hours of kick-ass rock and seven

encores on top of that, I'm sorry to

say that this time we really gotta

get back to our hotel rooms and fuck

some groupies.

Behind him, Trip grabs Lex's bass and swings it by the neck

at an amp pretending to bash it over and over again. Lex

quickly yanks it away from him.


What the fuck, Trip? That's my bass!

Jam emerges from behind the pile of drums smiling.


That was curly!


Just one more day of school to get

through, girls, before tomorrow

night... Live!

(getting excited)

COBO Hall! Detroit, Michigan!

(like an announcer)

You wanted the best!


You got the best! The hottest band

in the world... KISS!!

They all make that BREATH SOUND that mimics a screaming crowd.

Suddenly, headlights swing by in the window above them like

a spotlight. Lex hops onto the unmade bed and looks out the

cellar window.
