Kiss (sometimes typeset 'KISS', to fit the official logo) is an American rock band formed in New York City in 1973. Easily identified by their trademark face paint and stage outfits, the group rose to prominence in the mid-1970s on the basis of their elaborate live performances, which featured firebreathing, blood spitting, smoking guitars, and pyrotechnics.
Kiss has been awarded 22 gold albums to date, and have certified sales of 19 million records in the United States. The group's worldwide sales exceed 80 million albums...
