KSSS (101.5 FM), known as "Rock 101", is a radio station in Bismarck, North Dakota, owned by iHeartMedia, Inc.. The station airs an active rock format and primarily competes with classic-based rock KBYZ "96.5 The Fox".
KSSS aired an adult contemporary format as "Kiss 101.5" until 2001, when it switched to classic rock as "Kiss 101", before switching back to an AC format as "Star 101", and returning to classic rock as "101.5 A Rock & Roll Station". The station tweaked its music and imaging as "Rock 101" in 2005.
By the summer of 2011, "Rock 101" tweaked to a full blown mainstream rock format playing a mix of classic rock and rock from the 1970s, 1980s, 1990s, 2000s, to current active rock music. On October 28, 2011, Rock 101 evolved into a full blown active rock station; playing the latest from Five Finger Death Punch, Pop Evil, Seether, and other mainstream rock artists. The change came after nationwide Clear Channel staffing changes.
