  • Lyrics
  • Vinnie Vincent is best-known for having been a member of the band KISS, when he was hired to replace Ace Frehley, but he was in several bands before that. The Vinnie Vincent Invasion was formed by him in 1984. This is the group's best remembered song, and it's mainly notable for being the theme song for the motion picture Nightmare On Elm Street 4, which got it air time on MTV. The lyrics compare the end of a love to dying. >>
