We were kickin' it in the service of Satan the other day — you know, just spittin' blood, wearing platform shoes, the usual — polishing the lucite case that holds our prized copy of Howard The Duck No. 13, when it struck us: Will this installment of Metal at the Mercy feature a tribute to Music From “The Elder”? Sure, it was the biggest flop in the KISS discography — a misstep of ginormous proportions — but it just turned 30, and somebody (besides us) has to have some sort of affection for it, right? Enough to maybe squeeze one teensy, tiny, overwrought, loosely conceptual song that encapsulates everything bloated and confused about late ’70s corporate rock? Pretty please? Pretty please with a blood-covered cherry on top? Though we can totally understand why people might not want to do that — it's really not a good album.
