A World Without Heros It is credited as being written by Gene Simmons, Paul Stanley, Lou Reed and Bob Ezrin, and was originally recorded and released on their 1981 album Music from "The Elder".
Originally titled "Every Little Bit of Your Heart", the lyrics were changed in order the fit the concept of the album, which Lou Reed contributed the line "A world without heroes, is like a world without sun" to the lyrics.
The song is a slow ballad which features Simmons on lead vocals and Stanley in guitar solo.. It was released as the lone single from The Elder album and reached #56 in the U.S. and #55 in the UK.
A video was made to help promote the single, and was the first Kiss video to be played on MTV.
Despite the video and chart performance of the single, Kiss did not play the song live until fan request at Kiss conventions in the mid 90s led them to performing an acoustic version on their 1996 Kiss Unplugged performance and subsequent album.
