** In the early 1980s (prior to the unmasked years) KISS' popularity had severely declined all over the world... except for Japan and Australia, where they remained as popular as they were in the 1970s.

* BaseBreaker:
** Gene Simmons: is he the single [[RatedMForManly Manliest]], [[EvilIsCool coolest looking]] and most {{Badass}} and LeadBassist ''ever'', or a [[GreedyJew greedy]] [[ItsAllAboutMe megalomaniac]] [[RatedMForMoney who wastes his money]] [[TheMerch on everything he finds?]]

Added DiffLines:

* ExecutiveMeddling: One of the contributing factors to ''Music From "The Elder"'''s failure - the track order was meddled with by the studio to put the singles closer to the start. On any other KISS album, that might not have mattered, but on a ConceptAlbum, it made the storyline almost impossible to follow. (The correct track order was restored when the album was reissued on CD.)

Added DiffLines:

* BasedOnAGreatBigLie: Think "Beth" is drummer Peter Criss' step-it-up moment not just as a singer, but also as a songwriter? Paul Stanley doesn't think so. He has claimed that it was actually Criss' credited co-songwriter Stan Penridge who wrote it, justifying this by saying "Peter can't write a song, because Peter doesn't play an instrument." Naturally, Peter thinks this statement is nothing but BS.

* ReplacementScrappy: Mostly averted with Eric Carr, but otherwise played straight for most part. Especially in regards to Eric Singer and Tommy Thayer using costumes/singing songs by Peter Criss and Ace Frehley.

Not that the fans hate Singer/Thayer as people, but they hate how they wear the "Catman" and "Spaceman" makeup after Criss and Frehley departed.

** Definitely the case for Stanley in the 80's when Simmons was more focused with his acting career and other outside pursuits.



* GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff: Australia really likes ''Dynasty'' and ''Unmasked''.

* GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff: Australia really likes ''Dynasty'' "Dynasty" and ''Unmasked''."Unmasked" is where many around the world thought Kiss jumped the shark. However, both albums are regarded as classics in Australia.



* SignatureSong: Quite a few. Best examples are "Rock and Roll All Nite", "Detroit Rock City", and "I Was Made For Loving You". For the non-makeup era, there is "Lick It Up", "Heaven's On Fire", and "Forever".
