    45 Years Ago Today - Get up!

    Man, this makes me feel old...

    Came out on March 15th, 1976.



    Don't expect much, it's not like I'm a Rocket Surgeon...

    Songs about sex, drugs, demonic oral sex and car accidents. What's not to like?

      They're being performed by Kiss, for starters.

          Why in the serious fuck do people like Kiss. I can respect their success, but the music is something else.

            I loved em back then - but I was in 3rd grade when this came out. Once I heard Iron Maiden for the 1st time, my Kiss fanship died quickly.

              Because 8 year old me in '74 didn't know better, lol! Plus, my parents hated it so I had to like it Also discovered Black Sabbath around the same time and any like I had for Kiss soon disappeared.

                Everyone I've ever met with a fondness for Kiss was between the ages of 7 and 18 at some point during the mid-to-late 70s

                  A kid I knew in elementary school who ended becoming a notable local shredder was regularly drawing the KISS logo on the blackboard in 3rd grade (in 1976). He was way into it. KISS was the gateway drug into hard rock and metal for a lot of little kids in my age group.

                    Including me. It went Kiss-Van Halen->Aerosmith->Riot->Priest->Maiden->Metallica

                        Legitimate question - was there a time when Kiss was a decent hard rock band, and not a parody of a decent hard rock band? I'm willing to be open minded.

                          I don't understand it either. They dress like metal gods with prototype corpse make up but their music is not at all heavy in the least bit.

                            You could make an argument that God of Thunder influenced a lot of metalheads - cause I know a lot who say it did. But, beyond that and War Machine, it's all unoriginal rock & roll singing about sex buried under a giant spectacle facade of their live show.

                                Their music was fairly heavy by the standards of the early - mid '70s when they were in their creative heyday--the first three albums plus KISS Alive. It was about 1976-77 when their demographic started to transition to little kids who brought their KISS lunchboxes to school every day.

                                  That's exactly when I got into 'em... Between them and Star Wars, I was obsessed... and my lunch boxes were never the same.

                                    I'm sad to report that my musical tastes in 1976-77 began and ended with KC and Sunshine Band's "Shake Your Booty". That was literally the only current song I even knew--and I genuinely thought that it meant shaking the boot on your foot. The things you come up with when you're 9.

                                      Pretty much this. I found them in my brother's record collection and of course being a very young impressionable kid, I loved it.

                                        I mean… they made a fucking disco record. They were all about the money.

                                          I wasn't going to mention the disco record, but here it is.
