'''KISS''' is an American rock band, formed in the [[TheSeventies January 1973]] in UsefulNotes/NewYorkCity. It is well known for the face paint and complex costumes worn by the band-members, and its [[GreatBallsOfFire theatrical concerts]], which involve, among other things, fire breathing, blood spitting, smoking guitars, and [[ImpressivePyrotechnics lots of pyrotechnics]]. The [[FaceOfTheBand most well-known members]] are front-man Paul Stanley (rhythm guitar; his stage persona is "Starchild", due to being a "starry-eyed lover" and "hopeless romantic", a little ironic as he's now HappilyMarried) and of course Series/{{Gene Simmons|FamilyJewels}} (bass; the "Demon", cynical and fan of dark elements, and also known for [[OverlyLongTongue his enormous tongue]]). The two other founding members are the guitarist Ace Frehley (the "Spaceman", a reflection of his fondness for science fiction and [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} supposedly being from another planet]]) and drummer Peter Criss (the "Catman", in accordance with the belief that [[CatsHaveNineLives he had nine lives]] because of his rough childhood in Brooklyn.), whose make-ups are still worn by their current replacements, Tommy Thayer and Eric Singer (respectively).

* ScaryMusicianHarmlessMusic: They stomp around on stage in crazy costumes, their bass player breathes fire, spits blood, and looks like a demon, the lead guitarist is fond of putting fireworks in his guitar... and some of their biggest hits are [[TearJerker "Beth"]] and [[GratuitousDiscoSequence "I Was Made For Lovin' You"]], which sounds like it belongs on an "easy-listening" station.
