Kiss (keep in satans services)[edit]

My father had told me this I wanted to know if this is true

an urban legend. J04n(talk page) 15:43, 27 March 2013 (UTC)

And he didn´t get it right either. It is Knights, not Keep.

Genre[edit]

I decided to source glam metal and add another genre added since they were sourced. The band widely known to be shock rock. So i sourced it, and they needed a source for glam so i went to a glam page and found one. Just wanted to add that so they can be on the infobox. 9Greenday4 (talk) 00:18, 9 May 2013 (UTC)

It's always a good idea to have this discussion before adding/changing genres; othwerwise things can get messy with multiple editors reverting each other. ChakaKongtalk 12:27, 9 May 2013 (UTC)
The guidance also states that we should "Aim for generality (e.g. Hip hop rather than East Coast hip hop)." (see Template:Infobox musical artist). So it is not necessary to state exactly every variation of their sound. Hard rock and heavy metal would probably be more sufficient.--SabreBD (talk) 13:31, 9 May 2013 (UTC)


Detroit Rock City movie[edit]

Considering the elaborate minutia that this article goes into regarding the KISS career, I'm surprised it makes no mention of KISS's substantial concert appearance in the movie "Detroit Rock City" (1999). — Preceding unsigned comment added by 69.149.64.201 (talk) 06:13, 14 July 2013 (UTC)

Half of one song at the end of the movie is substantial? PSB136 (talk) 14:37, 5 April 2014 (UTC)

Glam rock[edit]

Don't they classify as glam rock? It's pretty obvious in my opinion. 78.72.0.233 (talk) 18:58, 19 November 2013 (UTC)

Contradictory information[edit]

Contradictory information contained in the latest edition of this page helped her to be reversed. To prevent the loss of credibility that version in English, I propose the establishment of fixed version, where any edition will be automatically reversed. Since the main target are the music genres, recommend the their revision .

Thanks!--Frank Rocker (talk) 01:37, 25 November 2013 (UTC)

Wonky sentence[edit]

"Kiss announced in early 2000 that they would be launching a U.S. Farewell Tour in the summer, which was to be the band's last, although it was last for the original line up; the tour kicked off on March 12, 2000.[93]"

Any idea on how this should be cleaned up? The footnote leads to a dead link. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 109.220.18.58 (talk) 21:51, 17 December 2013 (UTC)

So who really created the KISS logo?[edit]

I ask because the official KISS website at http://www.kissonline.com/history says "Frehley designs the original version of the now-famous KISS logo", but Paul Stanley's official website at http://paulstanley.com/bio states "Stanley designed and created the iconic KISS logo which 40 years on remains universally recognized as one of the greatest logos of the 20th century."
