Kiss has been around forever, but besides 500 truck loads of crap with Kiss' logo on it, fireworks at their shows and crazy outfits & makeup, are they actually known for anything? Sure "Rock n Roll All Nite" is an iconic song, and thanks to Bill & Teds Excellent Adventure "God Gave Rock n Roll To You." "Calling Dr. Love" is another big song, but I'd be hardpressed to think of anything else. I didn't even know that "Detroit Rock City" was a hit song of theirs until I saw the movie of the same name (really fun move BTW).

Kiss is influential in their own ways. The marketing side of the business. But I've never met anyone who says that their favorite band, or even one of their top 20 favorite bands is Kiss. The ones who do say Kiss is one of or their #1 band, well those people are most likely collectors and have rooms dedicated to Kiss Lunchboxes and Kiss Toilet paper.
