* 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.

** The United Kingdom absolutely loved "Crazy Crazy Nights", being there highest charting hit over there at #4. In fact, the U.K. is where Kiss saw the most success during the non-makeup years.

** 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".

* SignatureSong: "Rock and Roll All Nite", which almost always serves as the final encore at KISS concerts.

* MagnumOpus: Most fans consider ''Destroyer'' to be the best studio album by the classic KISS lineup (Simmons, Stanley, Frehley, Criss), while ''Revenge'' is often considered the best studio album made during the unmasked years.

* NeverLiveItDown: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0jzve-Tmd70 Their 1978 interview]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UvFNs3_uaUg with TomSnyder]]. It was one of their biggest publicity fiascoes because, contrary to the band's original intentions, it exposed to the audience their true personalities. The interview was supposed to showcase the members as serious, respectable musicians with a personal mystique on par with the Beatles or the Who, but as the program went on, one could see the nasty inner tensions simmering between the original members as well as their personal flaws; e.g. Simmons' self-important dickishness and Frehley's irresponsible but incredibly hilarious party-hearty drunkenness. You can even see how Simmons is fuming over how Frehley's behavior accidentally stole the spotlight everytime and endeared (undeservedly) Ace to the fans even more.
