This was the first song on the first Kiss album. It was part of their first five-song demo which was produced by Eddie Kramer.
This started as a song called "Stanley the Parrot." When they came up with a different groove, they changed it to "Strutter." (thanks, Iron Dave - Orlando, FL)
This song was inspired by good-looking women in New York City who wore sexy clothes. If you were looking for introspective lyrics in 1974, there were lots of places to find them, but not on a Kiss album.
Kiss released an updated version called "Strutter '78" on the album Double Platinum. (thanks, Jeff - Haltom City, TX for above 2)
This song was featured on the video game Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. (thanks, Tyler - Orangeville, Canada)
