“You wanted the best, your got the best. The hottest band in the world, KISS!”

Hot off the 12” heels of their highly successful double live album this leather-clad band transformed themselves into comic book super heroes complete with their own campy made for TV movie and super powers. No Grammys here, just four face painted grampys blowing fire and spitting up blood all for your music enjoyment.

The band in their original line-up has a new album out this year, Monster, and founding members Paul Stanley, Gene Simmons, Ace Frehley and Peter Criss were inducted into the Rock & Roll hall of Fame this past April, all adding another nail in the coffin of that establishment’s legitimacy. I fully expect to see Blue Man Group or if we wait another year the Backstreet Boys nominated next.

Rolling Stone ranked Destroyer 489 in their list of the 500 Greatest Albums of All Times.

Detroit Rock City

If that is not scary enough, enjoy some additional loud rocking, Halloweeny fun from 1976.
