In Deep, released in 1973, is the 4th studio album by Argent. It features the original full length recording of "God Gave Rock and Roll to You", which reached No.18 in the UK charts (U.S. #114), when released as a single in edited form later the same year, before being remade by Kiss as "God Gave Rock 'n' Roll to You II" for the film Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey in 1991, when it was a massive worldwide hit.
