Their contribution to rock n roll history-overrated or under appreciated?

I think under appreciated.. BIG TIME


they show that rock and roll doesn't have to save the world, just make it happy... and make it a big party

besides Rock and Roll all Night... there's some great songs... amazing ones

Crazy Nights
Tears Are Falling
Deuce (one of the mos amaziong rock songs you could hear live ---> Alive III )
Detroit Rock City (I dream of playing that song in Detroit one day)
I Was Made For Loving You
Shout It Out Loud (a song that basically says "have a blast")

and maybe their greatest song, and what I think is the REAL anthem of R&R:

God Gave Rock And Roll To You II

this happened when Bruce Kulick (2nd guitarist from like 84 to 96) came to Chile in December, in a little club, rock and roll made it a church:

I very much appreciate them. Amazing band both live and in the studio. At many times cheesy and filled with clichés but still they make it feel right and great. Some of their songs are simply amazing rock anthens, some of the best rock songs ever. My favorites are:

Shout It Out Loud
God Of Thunder
I Still Love You
Lick It Up
Let Me Go Rock N' Roll
Goin' Blind
Psycho Circus
I Was Made For Loving You
Black Diamond
Love Gun

I saw them live in '99 but unfortunately I wasn't a big fan so I didn't pay much attention, I just knew some of their songs and though they were kinda fun. I love them now and very much wish that they record a new album and tour the world. And if possible with Ace and Peter.

Why what? Why are they overrated? Hell I don't know. I have no clue why anyone would love this band.

I think you meant to ask how are they overrated. They are overrated because once you remove the makeup and the pyro, there are maybe 2 songs that are actually bareable. Nothing "army" worthy that's for sure...

I think the costumes and make-up go hand in hand with the music
and vice versa. One is not good without the other when it comes to KISS.

I only liked them until they took their make-up off.

holy shit, i have been waiting for someone saying they are kiss fans!!!!

i am a HUGE fan, they are now having like scattered concerts in the most random places, like on september 15th they are playing in whisker, british colombia..

They in my opinion are very under rated...im just waitin for another reunion tour, but wont happen since they already kicked off peter for eric singer last tour...

Exactly, and since they can't be in my car performing the songs... what's the point? The songs can't stand on themselves.

That is why you go buy Alive!, Alive II and Alive III, and recently the millenium concert, which is considered IV...

I think lick it up is a good song, and the best unmasked song...

Still no visual, they are nothing without the visual.

But the whole point of their live albums brings the visual to you without being infront of them, if you buy Alive!, then you will see what I mean, because it isnt just any live album, its the album that inspired 20 other bands/artists to start playing music
