"Crazy Crazy Nights" is a song by the American hard rock band Kiss. It was originally released on the outfit's 1987 album Crazy Nights.

Background[edit]

The song was a regular staple at the group's concerts, up until Eric Carr's passing in November 1991. However, due to constant requests from fans, the song returned to the set-list on the 2010 Sonic Boom Over Europe Tour.

Chart performance[edit]

The single peaked at number 65 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart in the United States on 31 October 1987,[1] and at number 37 on Billboard's Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks chart.[1] "Crazy Crazy Nights" was more commercially successful in the United Kingdom, as it peaked at #4, proving to be Kiss' first Top 10 single in the UK. Nearly 25 years later, it remains the band's biggest UK hit.

Popular culture[edit]

Darts player Wes Newton uses the song as his walk-on song.[2]
