"Fire Brigade" is a song written by Roy Wood and performed by The Move, with Wood on lead vocal. Glen Matlock of the Sex Pistols said some years later that the guitar on the song had strongly influenced the opening riff of their single "God Save the Queen"."Fire Brigade" influenced "Firehouse" from the self-titled debut album by Kiss. Released as the group's fourth single in Britain in February 1968, it reached No. 3 in the UK Singles Chart.
