There were some great bands in the 70s and 80s, KISS was obviously the greatest (Fave KISS song?)

    listening to Pere Ubu, Suicide, Metal Machine Music, Richard Hell, Kraftwerk, The Ramones and Television, I missed them entirely my head was turned looking the other way.
    I do get that they made a lot of people happy,
    and in that there is no fault.

    Yep, this one for me too. They had some decent stuff in their early days, but when the disco, glam, comic books, toy store dolls and rubbish started, that was it for me!

    The only decent song I remember after all the bs started was this one.

    Pick pretty much anything off “Alive!” and that’ll do for my favorite. Deuce, Strutter, 100,000 Years, She, Rock & Roll All Nite, etc.

    I read about three words of your first three posts, and it took me back to a wonderful time in my life as a budding and hopeful young musician, when I was utterly disgusted and horrified that such an unbelievably s***, so-called "rock band" could sell one album, get any airplay, and especially get chicks, in fact. So, I just kept listening to Jeff Beck, Sabbath, Zeppelin, Deep Purple, Hendrix, and 80 million other bands, the worst of which was 1000x better than Kiss. I'm actually proud of the fact that I never spent one dime on any of their cheesy money-grabbing shlock, including The Howard The Duck tie-in, their records, a concert, or anything else they've ever done, even though my friends thought they were gods.
    But I don't really know anything about music...

    okay, somethings up. I get thinking Kiss is great, but I’ve seen Phantom of the Park several times (brother has it on vhs and dvd) and it is most definitely not the best movie of all time.

    Were you aware of the Scooby Doo/ Kiss cartoon film from a few years back that happens to take place in a haunted amusement park? True story

    Everything they did sucks...but I'll go with "Room Service," which is basically a 69 cent, douchebag version of "High School" (MC5).

    You are 100% correct - impossible to pick just one but I'll go with this gem. I'm taking my 8 year old to his first rock concert next month - guess who???

    I though kiss was for kids at 11...exept for this one. I loved Detroit rock city from the begining...still do. In hindsight i like "love gun" and "I was made for...." to.

    Reminds me of Cher in that Native American-kini on the doped up horse. Didn't she marry the guy with the tongue drooping out? Ughh??o_O

    The thing about Kiss is that if you strip the image and toys away you are (somehow) left with a decent amount of pretty solid tunes.

    If you could take any tunes from the 70’s like Black Diamond, Cold Gin, Parasite, Beth, throw them on a mixtape with stuff like Thin Lizzy, Blue Oyster Cult, Mountain and they would fit right in.

    It is, however, entirely possible to pick none.

    For kids already indoctrinated by the Stones, Beatles, Who, Hendrix, Zepplin, all the 50’s and 60’s music Kiss was a personal latecomer. Kind of ignored them but I knew plenty of 10 to 13 year olds that were big fans of them. KISS was their coming of age, musically, for them.

    I don’t think they ever played Ed Sullivan.
