God Gave Rock 'N' Roll to You II" is a song by the American hard rock band Kiss. It was first released as a single in 1991, lifted off the soundtrack to the movie Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey, and was later included on Kiss' 1992 album Revenge. The song was a reworking of the Argent 1973 song "God Gave Rock and Roll to You" and is credited as being written by Russ Ballard, Paul Stanley, Gene Simmons and Bob Ezrin. The Christian rock band Petra first released a cover version of the song in their 1977 album Come and Join Us and re-released a somewhat updated version in their 1984 album Beat the System which sounds much more like the version from the film.
It was the last Kiss song to feature longtime drummer Eric Carr before his death in 1991. Although he was too ill to play drums on the track, he is featured on backing vocals during the a cappella break, singing the repeated line "...to everyone, he gave his song to be sung", as well as performing drums during the video for the song.
The single was also the first to feature Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley sharing lead vocals since "I" from 1981's Music from "The Elder".
