Editors’ Notes The critics hated Kiss, but their fans got them into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Forty years of playing at their loudest and always at their hardest endeared them to audiences worldwide. To celebrate this 40-year milestone, Kiss presents Kiss 40, a retrospective that starts with their 1974 self-titled debut and ends with their most recent comeback, Monster. In between are some of the greatest rock ’n’ roll anthems the world has known. Each album is represented by one song—including the four solo albums—to give fans insight into the band’s vision of their catalog. Even with this unusual restriction, 40 still includes “Nothin’ to Lose,” “Rock and Roll All Nite,” “Beth,” “Strutter ’78” (from Double Platinum), “I Was Made for Lovin’ You,” “I Love It Loud,” “Heaven’s On Fire,” “Tears Are Falling,” “Forever,” “God Gave Rock ’n’ Roll to You II,” “Detroit Rock City,” “Firehouse,” “Cold Gin,” and “Hell or Hallelujah.” It’s the ultimate quick summary of the fire-breathing, blood-spitting, drum-levitating band’s entire career.
