"A.D. 1928 / Rockin' the Paradise" is the fourth single release from Styx's 1981 triple-platinum album Paradise Theatre. It was released to rock stations as defined by Billboard Magazine. The single went all the way to #8 on the Billboard Rock Chart. "A.D. 1928" is a short, piano-based song by Dennis DeYoung, set to the same melody as "The Best of Times", that segues into the song "Rockin' the Paradise". This and the preceding track would serve as the opening songs of not only the Paradise Theater album but also its subsequent tour and the 1996 Return to Paradise reunion tour.
The music video for the song was the tenth to air on MTV when it debuted in the U.S. on August 1, 1981.
