KISS became known as one of the most influential bands of the 1970s, inspiring countless musicians with their music and larger-than-life stage presence. The band were also one of the highest-grossing live acts of the decade, with their concerts featuring pyrotechnics, elaborate costumes, and other visual effects that set the standard for arena rock performances. Simmons even defended their live performances‘ greatness, saying, ““It is a self-imposed mandate that, even if you hate the band and the music and think it’s silly, if you come to our show you will walk out and say, ‘That’s the best show I’ve ever seen in my life.'”

Despite numerous lineup changes over the years, KISS continued to release popular albums and tour extensively throughout the 1980s, 1990s, and 2000s. They were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2014, and their iconic makeup and costumes have become some of the most recognizable images in rock music history.

In addition to their music and live shows, KISS has also been involved in numerous merchandising ventures, from action figures to comic books to a KISS-themed mini-golf course. Their influence has extended beyond music into popular culture and has had a lasting impact on the entertainment industry as a whole.
