Ignoring fashions, trends and with a personal vow from all of us: no rapping. There are plenty of people out there doing this and they don't need four palefaced guys pretending they're from the hood.
Besides, I'm not sure how to correctly pronounce 'wassup. Or maybe later! In October , a new studio album, titled Sonic Boom , was released.
The song was Kiss' first single release in 11 years, since 's " You Wanted the Best ". The song gained positive feedback from both critics and fans, and was compared to the band's s work.
Sonic Boom debuted at No. These were the band's final performances there, as the venue was later closed as part of the renovation of the Cobo Center.
The truss had to be lowered in order to have the fire put out. During the five or so minutes it took to extinguish the fire, the band broke into the song "Firehouse".
No one was hurt and the show continued. Tragedy struck Kiss for a third time when former manager Aucoin died of cancer on June 28, , at the age of Stanley and Simmons said he was like the fifth member of Kiss.
The tour included their first UK arena shows in 11 years and their first visit to Slovakia. The tour saw the band play numerous shows throughout the US, Canada and Mexico.
On April 13, , Kiss began recording a new album due for release later in the year. Simmons said: "Technology is a seductive bitch, she will seduce you.
You press this button, you don't have to do anything. But analog is the love of your life. You can push real hard and it always gives back.
For the new album, the actual recording process was track tape and an old Trident board. And as many tubes as possible. You need tubes, electricity and thick wood to make that thick sound.
Kiss spent the summer of playing venues in the US and Canada, visiting cities they had not played in some time; it was dubbed the "Lost Cities Tour".
Their next album Monster was released in October The facility is an hole indoor miniature golf course, featuring arcade games, a gift shop, and numerous pieces of band memorabilia on display.
The complete current version of the band attended the grand opening. Kiss appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! A press conference was held on the same day to announce a summer North American tour called The Tour , co-headlined by Mötley Crüe.
The Tour started on July 20 and ended on October 1. Monster was released on October 9, , in North America to critical and fan acclaim, debuting in the Top 3 in the US and Top 10 in many countries.
On October 16, , Kiss was again announced as a nominee for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame ,  and was subsequently announced as an inductee on December In , Kiss purchased a share of an Arena Football League expansion franchise set to begin play at the Honda Center in Anaheim, California , in In , Kiss toured as co-headliners with Def Leppard.
After Simmons toured with Joe Elliott in South America, the two talked about their bands working together. From June 23 to August 31, , the bands toured 42 cities, with a dollar per ticket donated to such military charities as Wounded Warrior Project.
For the first time in the band's year history, Kiss was featured on the cover of the April 10, Issue edition of Rolling Stone magazine.
Though the rockers did not perform, the original four members showed up at the 29th annual induction ceremony in Brooklyn to accept the honor.
It was the first time Kiss had issued a collaboration record with another artist. Before the collaboration, the members of Kiss had watched concert videos of Momoiro Clover Z.
Stanley later commented during an interview:. Spectacular show! Great choreography! Music like we never heard before. We said, "this is something we can do!
Music power rocks the world. On September 15, , the RIAA announced that the band had earned more Gold records than any other American band in the association's year history, with a total of 30 Gold album awards including the band's four solo albums.
What an extraordinary achievement for an enduring band. Forty years later and the band is still rocking. In , Kiss conducted a summer tour, titled the Freedom to Rock Tour , of less frequented cities and smaller venues.
The tour ran throughout the summer, with opening acts Caleb Johnson and the Dead Daisies. There had been conflicting stories regarding whether Kiss would record another album.
Simmons had said "yes" in interviews, saying that he had songs written and lined up for a new album. Stanley and Thayer disputed this, however, and said that they did not vow to make one and that the band could move forward without new music.
Simmons and Stanley made cameo appearances in the film Why Him? This is gonna be our last tour. It will be the most explosive, biggest show we've ever done.
People who love us, come see us. If you've never seen us, this is the time. This will be the show. This was the first time Frehley and the band had performed together since for the closing ceremonies of the Winter Olympics , and Kulick's first time performing with the band live since his departure in The band's final tour kicked off on January 31 in Vancouver , British Columbia, Canada; it currently features additional dates that run through October 3, , in Fort Worth , United States.
During the first leg of the End of the Road World Tour, Kiss was accused by fans of lip syncing and using backing tracks.
Former Skid Row vocalist Sebastian Bach defended Kiss, saying that the band did not lip-sync at the show he attended.
On November 14, , the band announced that its Australia and New Zealand shows on its final tour had been cancelled due to Stanley's health issues, and stated: "Doctor's orders ultimately have taken precedence and finally we now find ourselves with no choice but to surrender".
While on the Kiss Kruise in November , Kiss had announced that it would be performing the last show of its final tour on July 17, , in New York City.
I don't really know. We've got about another year and a half to go on this tour. I'm sure most people here know we're on the End of the Road World Tour right now.
This tour started about a year ago, and we've got about a year and a half to go. The last show's gonna be July 17, in New York City. So I don't really know exactly what my plans are at the end of this.
Kiss is not gonna go away, though, either. The band is not gonna tour, but the Kiss music, the identities and the characters and the brand and the merchandise, that will all continue on.
I think that Kiss will continue on in some way. I can't imagine it not. With the events of the COVID pandemic , the band has temporarily ceased its final tour, with Simmons commenting that the tour would continue once scientists had confirmed that it is safe to resume.
Kiss has typically been classified under the genres of hard rock ,  shock rock , heavy metal ,    and glam rock.
In , starting with Lick It Up and the removal of its trademark make-up, the band began incorporating elements of glam metal into its sound and visual image.
Its music is described as "a commercially potent mix of anthemic, fist-pounding hard rock, driven by sleek hooks and ballads powered by loud guitars, cloying melodies, and sweeping strings.
It was a sound that laid the groundwork for both arena rock and the pop-metal that dominated rock in the late s. Kiss was strongly influenced by Alice Cooper and the New York Dolls ,  while Gene Simmons has stated that the band's "musical heart and soul lies in England".
The world of concert touring was changed by Kiss's practice of erecting uniquely designed stage sets. Tours got larger, carrying more personnel and equipment, including sets, costumes, sound and lighting gear, and pyrotechnics, all requiring more trucking and the total cost increasing by millions of dollars.
Kiss also innovated with a significant expansion of concert merchandising, selling non-musical Kiss-branded goods to concertgoers.
The sales of merchandise helped pay for the concert expenses and bring a profit to the band as well as give them more of a presence without relying solely on radio.
Other bands copied Kiss by selling their own branded goods at concerts, a practice which became more of a necessity in the s with increasing costs of touring.
The band is famous for its iconic makeup designs, each of which represents a different character or persona.
The current lineup consists of the original four designs: the "Starchild", the "Demon", the "Spaceman" and the "Catman".
The band formerly included a practice of giving any new members a new persona, such as "The Fox" for Carr and "The Ankh Warrior" for Vincent; this practice was ended after Singer and Thayer took up Frehley's "Spaceman" and Criss's "Catman" personas.
When asked on the matter, Simmons stated "Why wouldn't we use the classic makeup? We own it". Criss relinquished his rights to his makeup when he left the band in , which he later regretted, saying "I'm pissed at myself that my makeup slipped through my hands"; while Frehley claims he licensed his design to the band and would get it back, a notion which Stanley has called "a fantasy".
During —74, Stanley occasionally used an alternative makeup design called the "Bandit" for select photo-shoots and live shows after Neil Bogart , head of Casablanca Records, suggested to him that he use a design that was symmetrical like those of the rest of the band.
During this time, he was also still using the Starchild makeup—sometimes even using both designs at the same photo-shoots.
In , he stopped using the Bandit design permanently. On the cover of the band's debut album, Criss used a drastically different variation of his Catman makeup dubbed the "Pantomime Cat" after he allowed the makeup artist at the shoot to use their own ideas instead of following the usual design.
Carr was originally going to be the "Hawk", a design which Simmons recalled in his autobiography looked like Big Bird from Sesame Street.
One photo of Carr wearing this proposed design exists today, and also one of a mannequin Stanley set up wearing the proposed makeup and outfit.
Unlike the Bandit and Pantomime Cat, this alternative design was never used in any official capacity. The Hawk design was also considered for Vincent and Singer.
John and Kulick were members of Kiss only during the non-makeup period. Kulick stated that had he ever worn makeup in the band, he would have liked to have been the "Dog": "I figure that since there's already a cat in the band, I should probably be the dog.
I'd have a big circle around one eye and I'd look like Petey from the Little Rascals. I've actually seen one or two fan renditions of what that might look like, so yeah, I'd be the dog.

Nel , dopo l'abbandono di quasi tutti i componenti del gruppo che incisero un album mai pubblicato , Simmons e Stanley decidono di rifondare il gruppo con una nuova formazione.
Cercando un batterista , Simmons legge un'inserzione nella rivista musicale Rolling Stone che, contrariamente a quanto dichiarato, non recita "Batterista disposto a tutto pur di avere successo"  pubblicata da Peter Criscuola , un batterista con un passato di membro di band jazz.
Simmons risponde all'inserzione e decide di ammettere il batterista che per l'occasione cambia il proprio nome in Peter Criss all'interno della band.
Per tale ragione, sulle copertine degli album prodotti in Germania le S sono disegnate in modo molto diverso dall'originale, proprio allo scopo di evitare critiche per la somiglianza all'emblema delle SS.
Alcuni mesi dopo, nel febbraio del , i Kiss fanno il loro esordio discografico con l'omonimo album , lanciato due settimane dopo l'inizio del loro primo tour incominciato ad Edmonton in Canada.
Nello stesso periodo i Kiss fanno anche la loro prima apparizione in televisione nella trasmissione Dick Clark's in Concert , mentre il 29 aprile Gene Simmons rilascia la sua prima intervista nel talk-show Mike Douglas Show .
Nonostante le vendite basse, i concerti dei Kiss riscuotono grande successo. Anche come band d'apertura rubano la scena alle band di punta, grazie ai numeri eseguiti da Gene Simmons come mangiafuoco e sputi di sangue sintetico, chitarre che sparano fumo, e fuochi artificiali , al loro look, caratterizzato da trucco facciale e appariscenti costumi.
Si dice che per rendere spettacolari i concerti, i KISS arrivassero a guadagnare poco o niente, per pagare gli effetti speciali. Dato che le vendite di album e il successo live non combaciavano, il 10 settembre del i Kiss pubblicano il loro primo album live, intitolato Alive!
I Kiss si assicurano inoltre un ulteriore guadagno in denaro grazie ai numerosi oggetti firmati fumetti, kit per il trucco facciale, bambole, maschere di Halloween , e in futuro anche preservativi , bare  , pantofole e mutande con il loro logo, che diviene un marchio registrato.
Nel i Kiss pubblicano il loro secondo album live, intitolato Alive II premiato al momento del lancio con due dischi di platino. Nel esce la loro prima raccolta, intitolata Double Platinum.
Nello stesso anno, i quattro decidono di pubblicare simultaneamente un disco solista per ogni membro della band. Gli album riscuotono un successo inferiore rispetto a quello dei due precedenti.
Nonostante il gruppo abbia raggiunto il successo mondiale, proprio nel incomincia il declino della formazione originale. Celebre la domanda "tu dovresti essere lo Spaceman, giusto?
Per quell'occasione i Kiss si esibirono in collegamento via satellite da New York assieme ad altri personaggi della musica come Bee Gees , Village People e Van Halen .
Inoltre pare fosse stata rifiutata una proposta di Eddie van Halen   , allora in tensione con David Lee Roth.
I due album successivi all'abbandono di Frehley si intitolano Killers una raccolta di brani non pubblicata negli Stati Uniti con 4 tracce inedite , e Creatures of the Night.
Quest'ultimo album che mostra in copertina ancora Ace Frehley venne pubblicato nell'ottobre del Nel settembre del i Kiss fecero la loro prima apparizione su MTV senza il trucco e i costumi che li caratterizzavano fino ad allora, in concomitanza con la pubblicazione del loro nuovo album intitolato Lick It Up , premiato con il disco di platino.
Con questo disco i Kiss intraprendono un nuovo percorso musicale, incorporando elementi pop metal genere molto in voga negli anni ottanta e di cui i Kiss furono alcuni dei principali precursori .
Tuttavia, alla fine del tour seguente all'album, Vinnie Vincent se ne va per forti incrinature con Simmons e Stanley. Mark St. Durante le prove dell' Animalize world tour, tuttavia, Mark St.
John abbandona il gruppo a causa di problemi di salute, avendo contratto la Sindrome di Reiter  , ed il suo posto venne preso da Bruce Kulick , fratello di Bob , che sarebbe dovuto entrare come chitarrista nel gruppo nel prima che arrivasse Frehley.
Nonostante i continui cambiamenti della formazione, i Kiss durante questo periodo ritrovano, almeno negli Stati Uniti , il successo, anche se inferiore a quello degli anni settanta.
Con la nuova formazione, i Kiss incidono altri tre album premiati come dischi di platino. Nel esce Hot in the Shade , album dalla struttura musicale elaborata, il cui singolo Forever scritto da Stanley in compagnia di Michael Bolton raggiunge il numero otto della classifica  , migliore posizione dal ed ultimo singolo, finora, dei Kiss nella Top 10 .
Nel video di Rise To It , tratta dall'album, compaiono alla fine del brano per una decina di secondi, in un ipotetico flashback del '75, Stanley e Simmons col make-up.
Per il loro primo album degli anni novanta i Kiss decidono di assumere di nuovo Bob Ezrin come produttore e si apprestano nella lavorazione di un nuovo disco, Revenge.
Tuttavia, a due mesi dalla guarigione, a settembre, il batterista viene ricoverato per due emorragie cerebrali . Eric Carr muore il 24 novembre, lasciando un vuoto sia all'interno del gruppo che tra i fans.
Passato lo shock della sua scomparsa, i Kiss sostituiscono Carr con Eric Singer batterista con un passato di militanza in altri gruppi heavy metal come i Black Sabbath e Badlands.
Nel i Kiss organizzano il Worldwide Kiss Convention Tour, durante il quale si esibiscono cover bands e in cui vengono allestite delle mostre in cui vengono esposti diversi oggetti e strumentazioni.
Durante la prima data del tour 17 giugno , la band tiene un'esibizione dal vivo nella quale compare come batterista Peter Criss , che aveva lasciato il gruppo nel Il 28 febbraio del i Kiss si ripresentano con la loro formazione originale in occasione della trentottesima edizione dei Grammy Awards .
Trots att konserten gick bra, ogillade Ellis bandets image och musik. I början av januari höll bandet flera provspelningar för att värva ännu en bandmedlem: gitarristen Ace Frehley imponerade och knöts därför den 3 januari till bandet.
I slutet av var skivbolaget Casablanca nästan bankrutt, och Kiss var därmed nära att förlora sitt skivkontrakt. Kiss började därefter arbeta med producenten Bob Ezrin , som tidigare bland andra arbetat med Alice Cooper.
Resultatet av detta samarbete blev bandets mest ambitiösa studioalbum, Destroyer , som gavs ut den 15 mars Albumets omlag designades av Ken Kelly, som tidigare hade ritat Tarzan , Conan samt albumomslag till bland andra Rainbow och Manowar.
Programmet, som producerades av bland andra Bill Aucoin, hjälpte till att introducera Kiss för en ännu större publik. Den 14 oktober gavs ett andra livealbum ut, Alive II , och alla tre album blev platinacertifierade kort efter att de givits ut.
Denna version är discoinfluerad, efter ett förslag av Neil Bogart. Bandets fanklubb, Kiss Army, hade över en miljoner medlemmar.
För detta arbetade man fram en ambitiös strategi för För bandmedlemmarna blev detta en chans att visa upp sina individuella musikstilar och smaker utanför Kiss, och i vissa fall att samarbeta med samtida artister.
Den andra delen i bandets utarbetade strategi var att de skulle medverka i en film. Filmen hade beskrivits som en blandning av Stjärnornas krig och Yeah!
De kände att filmen mer porträtterade dem som clowner än superhjältar. Misslyckandet med filmen ledde till en kyligare relation mellan gruppen och Aucoin.
Hans färdigheter som trummis hade urholkats märkbart och med avsikt saktade han ner, eller till och med slutade spela helt, under vissa konserter. Carr antog till slut personan "Fox".
Gitarrdelarna spelade han i sin hemmastudio och postade de sedan till Ezrin. I oktober gav gruppen ut sitt tionde studioalbum, Creatures of the Night.
Till inspelningen av albumet använde sig bandet av flera gitarrister, däribland Vinnie Vincent. Detta var bandets första konsert utan smink sedan början av Han ersattes av studiomusikern och gitarrläraren Mark St.
Tillsammans med St.
