The most overrated band in rock and roll history whose only claim to fame was their affinity for outlandish costumes, highlighted by face make-up and shocking antics. Most famous for two particular songs: the lyrically shallow "Rock n' Roll All Nite," and the musically unmemorable"Detroit Rock City." Originally made up of vocalist and bassist Gene Simmons, vocalist and rhythm guitarist Paul Stanley, lead guitarist Ace Frehley, and drummer Peter Criss. Frehley and Criss have long since left the band, likely after realizing that the band's lyrics were shallow and unimaginative and that their instrumentation was simple and forgettable.
Classic Rock Tool: Dude, have you heard Kiss? They're the loudest, most awesome band ever!
Classic Rock Pro: Sure they're loud, but they're certainly not awesome! If you want real '70s metal with crazy antics, go for Alice Cooper.
