    Thinking K@*# worthy of being mentioned on the same forum as AC/DC makes a lot more sense if you think porn is ever better than sex.

    Here are many artists way worst than KISS beeing praised at this forum.

    KISS has a lot of influence in the rock world just like AC/DC.
    Both Angus Young and Ace Frehley have inspired many teenagers to buy their first guitar.

    King of the Nightime World, Coming Home, Cmon and Love Me, Hotter Than Hell, Parasite, Room Service, All American Man are some of my favourites that come to mind.... Did quite a bit of rubbish aswell but so do most bands.

    But I don't think people on that thread compare those bands to AC/DC. That was the crime here.

    I love early KISS. Dressed to Kill is one of the best rock records you could hope to hear.

    Next, it will be Whitesnake V AC/DC - shocking! Absolutely zero comparison, in fact the complete opposites of rock bands.

    Fair enough, just seems KISS are one of those bands/people everybody loves to hate, along with Dave Evans, Axl Rose, Chris Slade etc. It just gets silly after a while.

    For sheer primal power and menace the only bands that can hold a candle to AC/DC are the Stooges and Motorhead, no-one else.

    This song of the Dressed To Kill album is a classic rock`n`roll tune:

    KISS are awesome,they have their ups and downs like many bands do. Preaching to the choir here mostly,but still.

    I stand behind the 70's records, they are great.

    Rock and Roll Over,Dressed To Kill,Love Gun,Hotter Than Hell,the debut, Destroyer,Alive!...classics all the way.

    Creatures Of The Night,Lick It Up are also very good, some nice and heavy rock 'n roll after the Elder shit show. Animalize and Asylum are drop off in quality after the previous 2,but they have their moments,but after that...that's then it gets into the bull shit stuff (for me). The odd good tune here and there but nothing ground breaking.

    People tend to hate on the look and the personalities of the individual members it seems, rather than judging the actual music. So much there for the blues based classic rock fan in the earlier stuff, I feel the idea/personas have kept some people away.

    They've written a lot of classic tracks, no doubt about it.

    Here's a good 80s era track I discovered a while ago. Very catchy. I hear a bit of AC/DC influence in the guitar riff.

    Ace was my favorite member of KISS. I am extremely dissapointed because he is not part of the last tour.

    But here is one of his very best songs. This is an OVERKILLER:

    Ok, I would've thought cooler heads would have prevailed and used this post by DustDevil to shut this whole thing down. But it is not to be.

    Perhaps this analogy will do the trick:

    The premise of the original poster is very much like going to an anal-sex forum and saying, "hey, someone rubbing on your crotch with your jeans on can be just as delightful!"

    Why an anal sex forum? How would a forum about normal sex react to that statement?

    It's about intensity, SB. AC/DC is intense. Kiss, not so much.

    Anal sex forum? I wouldn't mind if the Release Date thread was transformed into an Anal Sex thread and then deleted by Mods into oblivion.

    I have 100 jokes about anal and KISS i want to make but it’s a real pain in the ass deciding which one to say.

    Turn it into members only and i’ll gladly lurk the anal sex thread, if for no other reason than to see Toronto’s input on the fecal matter.

    Kiss means Piss in Swedish. That's a bit unfair though. They have contributed to rock.

    I maintain most people that bash KISS don't really know the music.

    This is some great rock n roll right here.

    Agreed, good shouts both.
    I think AC/DC have much more in common with bands like that - just in terms of their brand of power - than, I dunno, Megadeth and bands like that.
  22.  
    For "primal" rock power — as well as some great quieter stuff on occasion — I think Monster Magnet rock hard.

    Visceral with amazing lyrics and one of the all-time great rock n roll personalities in Wyndorf.

    That first KISS album was excellent. Solid songwriting, and it's their best *sounding* album, too.
