"Shout It Out Loud!" When this song appeared on the Destroyer album from KISS in 1976, it was the perfect call to arms for the Kiss Army. This band from New York City dominated the stadium rock scene in the seventies, and more than thirty years later Kiss continues to enjoy the fruits of their labor and a massive, loyal fan base.Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons were in a band by the name of Wicked Lester back in 1971. The band released one album but never had any real success, so the two decided to change direction. In late 1972 Peter Criss joined the two on drums, and December of that year guitarist Ace Frehley was added. The classic line-up of KISS was now in place.January of 1973 Kiss played their first show together at the Popcorn Club in Queens. The story goes that three people were at the show. That kind of inauspicious beginning would have never led anyone to believe that just two-plus years later KISS would become one of the biggest live acts of rock and roll.In a mere 14 months after their first show Kiss had released three studio albums, the third album Dressed to Kill containing what would become the band's signature song Rock and Roll All Nite. However, the band was still not a big success. That changed in September of 1975 with the release of the fourth album from KISS, Alive! The band wanted to capture the magic of their already legendary live show on record, and this proved to be exactly what the band needed. Kiss were full-fledged superstars.KISS has released over twenty albums in its illustrious career, been the stars of a TV movie, and dominated the memorabilia market with items such as Kiss dolls and lunch boxes. Live they have taken the idea of stdium rock to dizzying extremes, with pyrotechnics, smoking guitars, fire breathing, and of course Gene Simmons' legendary blood spitting. KISS took basic rock and roll and mastered the art of creating a rock and roll spectacle.
