|Kiss singles chronology|
"Rocket Ride" was written by Kiss guitarist Ace Frehley and Sean Delaney. Frehley sang lead vocals, and he noted in the booklet for the 2001 Kiss Box Set that this was his first vocal performance that he was satisfied with. It was the only studio track of the five recorded for Alive II that he performed on, as Bob Kulick was brought in to play guitar on some of the other tracks.
Hide recreated the intro of the song for his own 1998 single "Rocket Dive", the title also being an homage to the track. Frehley's 2008 tour, The Rocket Ride Tour (in support of his album Anomaly) was named after this song.
