Impact, Influence, and Awesomeness.

This is Tom Morello’s personal criteria for Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees, and KISS undoubtedly have all three.

From consecutive broken records, to a plethora of legendary artists in their own right crediting them as an inspiration, expressing KISS’ impact in terms that do them justice is a difficult task.  Yet, Tom Morello has done just that with his passionate speech at KISS’ induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

KISS’ influence extends across a range of artists and genres, inspiring the likes of Slipknot, Foo Fighters and Nine Inch Nails with their music, antics and theatrics.

Their popularity is undeniable, selling over 100 million albums worldwide and achieving 28 #1 albums in the US, despite being the ire of critics and self-righteous music nerds alike.

The recent announcement of their final ever Australian tour is bittersweet, then, after an iconic 45 years in rock ‘n’ roll.  Don’t miss your final chance to see them on our shores during their End of the Road Tour in 2019.
