As America’s #1 Gold Record Award winning group of all time, and that’s in every category (RIAA), KISS can easily be named one of rock’s most influential bands. The Rock N Roll Hall of Famers have released 44 albums and sold more than 100 million albums worldwide. Honored by their peers, KISS received the illustrious ASCAP Founders Award in 2015. Over 40 years of record-breaking global tours have brought KISS to their fans. They kicked off their recent world tour with 5 headlining shows in Japan and a #1 single in 2014 “Samurai Son” with pop group, Momoiro Clover Z. Their 40th Anniversary World tour also rocked North America, South America and Australia. Additionally, once a year the “KISS Army” becomes the “KISS Navy” as fans from across the globe board the KISS Kruise (2017 will mark their 7th voyage). KISS teamed up with Warner Brothers in 2014 to create the well-received original movie ScoobyDoo and KISS: Rock And Roll Mystery. Other high-profile appearances have included the Super Bowl, the Winter Olympics, Rockin’ The Corps concert, a FOX alliance with KISS appearing in multiple episodes of Family Guy, plus two special guest performances on American Idol finales. KISS has been featured in major advertising and marketing campaigns for John Varvatos, Google Play, Hello Kitty— even appearing in a Dr. Pepper Super Bowl commercial and advertising campaign in support of their Hottest Show On Earth tour. KISS founding band members Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons have also entered the culinary world by opening a string of successful restaurants aptly named Rock & Brews. KISS is dedicated to numerous Veterans Organizations including: Vet Tix, The Wounded Warriors Project, The USO, The U.S. Chamber of Commerce “Hiring Our Heroes” program, The Legacy Organization in Australia, Help For Heroes United Kingdom and The Dr. Pepper Snapple Groups Wounded Warriors Support Foundation.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Have I mentioned that KISS is my very favorite band of all time? I have, haven’t I? Of course, if you’re new to the website for any reason this news might be something of a disclosure to you but yes indeed, KISS is my very favorite band of all time. That being said, I have been behind their career with my offerings here on the website and if you felt like you had some time to peruse, just click THIS LINK to open a tag that should bring up any KISS references on – You’ll get some album and video reviews, concert experiences and milestones and of course some show listings that have passed or are yet to come. I will most likely be reviewing the upcoming greatest hits piece because the KISS Implant will go off and compel me to do so upon its release. I think that KISS is now ahead of Iron Maiden in terms of hits compilations. Having reviewed several of these already I am not too sure on how to approach it but let’s see what happens when the time comes. It’s my hope that a comprehensive booklet is involved like we got with their last issue of this kind. What do you readers think about this? Will you be adding yet another KISS Greatest Hits release to your music library? Chime in down below in the comments and see you next time.
