3. that was a defining moment of american culture
a band that created brand identity in 2 or three short years in the days before the internet and ubiquitous cable television.

a band whose first three albums (between 1973 and 1975) were all vigorously selling . . .

a band who had the balls to repackage those same three albums as a set called "origins" that quickly went gold.

the groundswell of a powerful army that had multidudinous recruits throughout every elementary, junior high, and high school in the u.s.

man, they did accomplish much with so very little.

5. I must be younger than you
But my brother fucking LOVED kiss. He was a kiss maniac. He's like... mmmm.... 10 years older than me. So when I was about 4 he signed me up for the kiss army because he thought it would be hilarious.
He also trained me to say "**** ***** is the KING!" on the phone to all his friends. And he'd dress me up like a rocker and teach me to head bang.

Oh man, I miss the days before he became a coke head. I was the coolest fuckin' kid in kindergarten thanks to him. For his birthday this year, I got him a collectable Kiss comic. He almost shat. It was hilarious.
