Hard metal rockers KISS, featuring bassist Gene Simmons and guitarist Paul Stanley, are most identifiable by their trademark makeup and personas. The Demon, Star Child, Space Man, and Cat Man rose to prominence in the late 1970s with their elaborate live performances featuring blood spitting, fire breathing, smoking guitars, and pyrotechnics, and of course, their music.
KISS's breakthrough album Alive!, achieved quadruple platinum status and yielded the iconic version of their hit songs, "Rock and Roll All Nite" and "C'Mon and Love Me" making KISS instant rock gods. After rockin' it out for more than three decades, KISS has been awarded 45 gold albums to date, and their worldwide sales have exceeded 80 million albums thanks to the legion of KISS Army fans showing their unwavering loyalty.
KISS currently holds the distinction as America's number one record award winning group of all time proving they continue to remain "Hotter than Hell" as the greatest rock 'n roll band in the world. A star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame ain't bad either!
