After a few years of giving away his songs to the band's other vocalists, Ace Frehley made his long-awaited vocal debut in 1977 with "Shock Me." This sturdy rocker is built on double-entendre lyrics that compare a steamy romantic encounter to being electrocuted: "Don't cut the power on me/I'm feelin' low so get me high/Shock me, make me feel better." The music affects a relaxed mid-tempo style that pairs gently swinging verse melodies to a punchy chorus that delivers the choral hooks in a call-and-response style. Kiss' recording of "Shock Me" has an easygoing but powerful feel reminiscent of the Rolling Stones' 1970s-era rockers, building itself on a low-slung guitar riff and a steady groove from the rhythm section that is fuelled by some crisp drum fills from Peter Criss. Frehley contributes a typically fiery solo and a blissed-out vocal that fits the song's playful mood perfectly. Frehley was apparently very nervous while recording this vocal (he ended up singing it lying on his back in a darkened studio), but it was a solid effort that set the stage for future Frehley-vocalized Kiss faves like "Talk to Me" and his solo hit "New York Groove." "Shock Me" also became a beloved live guitar-solo set piece for Frehley that often climaxed with him detonating his smoking guitar (this act can be seen in all its pyrotechnic glory on the Kiss My Ass video).
