143 KISS KISS Kiss is an American hard rock band formed in New York City in January 1973 by Paul Stanley, Gene Simmons and the band's original manager, Lew Linet.

ARE you kidding 2012 if you didn't see kiss with ace and peter you didn't see kiss, saw kiss first time in 1974 long beach arena opened for wishbone ash and camel 30min set, the last your they opened for anyone, saw them again 1975 forum la the tour alive came from again 1977 anaheim stadium destroyer tour again 1978 love gun tour things began to fall apart after love gun until 1996 the reunion saw them in Dallas July 7 1996 the loudest crowd I ever heard ever and I've seen them all stones zep etc. The essence of kiss is ace Peter paul gene, now was magical.

This is a BULLS*** list. This band has gone strong for over 40 years. Two-thirds of the bands ahead of them were around for relatively short lengths of time. Only a few had the quality in their song catalogs, none had the stage show.

KISS is the best band to hit the stage since The Beatles! They take you to Detroit Rock City, they will Rock and Roll All Nite if you give them the chance! Hottest band in the world! Debate over

Should definitely be at number 1
