2. Now you've done it. I love Styx.

Here's the song lark was thinking of:

The album was laser-etched. I love this song:

"A.D. 1928 / Rockin' The Paradise" is the fourth single release from Styx's 1981 triple-platinum album "Paradise Theatre". It was released to rock stations as defined by Billboard Magazine. "A.D. 1928" is a short, piano-based song by Dennis DeYoung, set to the same melody as "The Best Of Times", that segues into the song "Rockin' The Paradise". This and the preceding track would serve as the opening songs of not only the "Paradise Theater" album but also its subsequent tour and the 1996 Return To Paradise reunion tour. Tommy Shaw played the guitar solo on the studio version, but subsequent live versions include a second guitar solo from James Young towards the end.
The video for the song was the tenth to air on MTV when it debuted in the U.S. on August 1, 1981.

"Paradise Theatre" is the tenth album by the rock band Styx, released in January 1981.
A concept album, the album is a fictional account of Chicago's Paradise Theatre from its opening to closing (and eventual abandonment), used as a metaphor for America's changing times from the late 1970's into the 1980's.
