It took a long time, but Kiss finally wound up on the cover of Rolling Stone this week, just in time for their induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The crazy Kiss saga would probably not have been possible without Alive!, their 1975 live record that finally broke the band across America. It was one of many incredible live albums from the decade.

Now we have a question for you: What is the greatest live album of the 1970s? Feel free to go for an old standby like the Who's Live at Leeds or the Allman Brothers Band At Fillmore East, a prog rock staple like Yessongs or Genesis Live, or just vote for Frampton Comes Alive. Vote for any live album you want as long as it hit shelves sometime in the 1970s.

“Whoomp! (There It Is)”

Tag Team | 1993

Cecil Glenn — a.k.a., "D.C." — was a cook at Magic City, a nude dance club in Atlanta, when he first heard women shout "Whoomp — there it is!" Inspired by the party chant, he and partner Steve "Roll'n" Gibson wrote a song around it. Undaunted by label rejections, they borrowed $2,500 from Glenn's parents and pressed 800 singles, which quickly sold out in the Atlanta area. A record deal came soon after. Glenn said the song was meant for positive partying. "If you're going to say 'Whoomp there it is,' and you're doing something negative, we'd rather it not have come out of your mouth."
