82 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.

KISS are gods of rock n' roll, sent down to earth (or up from hell) to get us to ROCK AND ROLL ALL NITE AND PARTY EVERYDAY!
I worship.

We need to get the kiss army on this! I know at least a million people would love to use their first amendment rights right now, and give these GODS a vote up and another supporting comment!

Come on, every single band member has the charisma of an amazing frontman!
Their stage theatrics are absolutely the best!
Their songs are all rock anthems that have even appeared on family guy!

Kiss isn't just a rock band, and that's what makes them so legendary.
They're more than a band, they are a way of life.
A philosophy, if you will.

They are the light at the end of the tunnel, guiding you to rock n' roll heaven.

If we're talking legendary. Kiss wins hands-down. They might not have the best songs, or the deepest lyrics, or the most talented musicians... BUT THEY ARE THE MOST LEGENDARY BAND EVER.

You might not like the music, but you can at least appreciate the effort they put into their shows. Rock is about having a good time... Or at least it used to be...

Someone needs to give a good show.

Before you judge this comment, ask yourself what legendary means.
To me, legendary means larger-than-life. The srts of things people talk about for years. The kinds of thigs people want to emulate. The kinds of things that people worship.
Kiss is arguably the most iconic band ever.
People all over the world can identify Kiss, and they have a devoted following in the millions.
How many bands have lunchboxes, backpacks, and even a comic book about them?

Kiss does, my friends.

Someone needs to give a good show.
