Melanie Lynskey and Natasha Lyonne are both successful and well-respected actresses, which means they’re familiar faces to the general public. What not everyone might know, however, is that the two go way back. In Variety‘s recent Actors and Actors conversation, Lynskey revealed that she met Lyonne while working on the 1999 movie Detroit Rock City.

Those who grew up in the ’90s are likely to remember this flick, a coming-of-age comedy about four boys who set off on a road trip to see KISS, their favorite hard rock band, live in Detroit. Alongside the Yellowjackets and Poker Face stars, the movie features Edward Furlong, Sam Huntington, James DeBello, and Guiseppe Andrews in the lead roles, with appearances of all the KISS members, Paul Standley, Gene Simmons, Peter Criss, and Ace Frehley.

Sadly, not everyone has gotten to Detroit Rock City yet, but after Lynskey and Lyonne’s mention of it, many wish to. Because who wouldn’t want to see the two share the screen? That said, the fact that the movie was released over two decades ago can make it rather hard to find, but not impossible.

How to watch Detroit Rock City

Detroit Rock City is not currently available to stream on major services such as Netflix or Hulu, but there are other ways to watch it. Those who wish to can either rent or purchase the film on several platforms, including YouTube, Google Play, Amazon, Apple TV, Vudu, DIRECTV, Microsoft, and Redbox. Renting prices can vary between $2.99 and $3.99, but if you’re looking to buy the film, prices currently range from $9.99 to $13.99.

With this many options, there’s no reason to skip Detroit Rock City.
