How funny that the song that chased away so many people 42 years ago is finding new life with young people online in 2021. Maybe Kiss (the real Kiss) is becoming cool once again.
😮 I found my twin in there or twin when I was a teenager:

laviniaachiesaa

:roll:
I hear you Big Man. However…

It did catch my attention. :D

That plus Sister J’s usual sprinkle of innuendo, double entendre, and recollections of the raucous days of yesteryear does paint quite a picture.

That and she was so gracious to post a picture showing us how well her favorite tee shirt fits…um, jacket. Whatever it was.

Yes. Even though some here are delusional enough to believe that's Rock and Roll All Nite...

Exactly, by FAR their most well known song, still most people on this forum still don't get that.
In the late eighties (1986-1989ish), for some reason the british Music Box (Later 'Super channel') and Sky channel did play a lot 'Sure Know Something', 'A World Without Heroes' and 'Shandi' videos @ 'Monsters of Rock' (Sky channel) and Power Hour (Super channel), but I very rarely or NEVER saw IWMFLY video.
Britain is not the world, the days of the British Empire are long gone :-) It's true that the song was not a huge hit in the UK in 79 when it was released, but it was a smash hit in many countries. It's hands down KISS' biggest hit worldwide.

Yep. Maybe you just told the reason, why other videos were played more - or then not. Was A world without heroes a bigger hit than IWMFLY? Those were british owned music channels and perhaps chart positions had impact on the preference of e.g SKS over IWMFLY. - Or then there could've been many other reasons. Maybe IWMFLY, was considered too 'disco' to be played in a heavy metal video show??

Who knows. I didn't want to make any point, except recalling/bringing out what I remember from those teenage years.

Every once in a while this song becomes popular again. When I was a kid in the late 90s European band Scooter did a cover and it was a huge hit over here. I knew it before I discovered KISS

Sure Know Something is my favorite song on Dynasty and apparently it charted higher than IWMFLY in the UK, so I can only compliment the good people of Britain on their impeccable taste :-) (SKS went to 44/ IWMFLY 50- very odd to me that both did poorly in the UK, maybe it has to do with KISS still being considered a joke in the UK at the time. In comparison: IWMFLY went to n°1 In Belgium, The Netherlands, Canada, France, New Zealand; n°2 in Australia, West-Germany, South-Africa, Switzerland)

Hmmm. I like the song but I would argue Beth is the most well-known. And even though it's not a Kiss song New York Groove.

Not saying this is a deal-closer, but just a funny thing, I remember during the reunion era, I switched on to the TV show "Friends" for a minute (I don't like it) and coincidentally during that minute, Kiss came up. One of the guys asked one of the girls, "Quick...what's your favorite Kiss song?" And she said, "Beth!" I just thought that was pretty cool.

Not even close. Neither of those songs got any traction or airplay outside the USA like IWMFLY.

ybe Kiss (the real Kiss) is becoming cool once

I was at a Dynasty show , and was never chased away by that song. Even at that young age I understood , that KISS was evolving. I thought it was cool then. But I've never been stuck in one dimensional thinking. Never thought in terms of " up, down, in out, rock or disco. "
