Quoted from rommy:
...Wrestling, EM, old ass KISS, what's next? Muppets? Lmao.
If Stern did Wrestlemania, KISS, and then the Muppets, they'd hit the holy trinity of my youth. That would infuriate the masses, but put the biggest grin on my face. Hell, a Muppet I made out of Lego's is my avatar! I'd be concerned that someone at Stern was spying on me because no one else can like those things, right?
KISS is so polarizing because to many they're a commercializing group first and a band second. Any time someone mentions they hate KISS, I ask if they like AC/DC. Musically they are as close as Nickelback is to my toilet flushing. Both KISS and AC/DC put out very basic "4-on-the-floor" standard toe-tapping rock songs. Both have very distinct frontmen, and both have lead guitars that are great. But if you take just 1 month of drum lessons, you can play half of KISS' catalog and 98% of AC/DC's.
KISS may already have had a pin from ~35 years ago, but IMO their image/theme/brand is so much more pin-friendly than AC/DC. If they had a pin which had an awesome light show that captured live KISS concerts, they'd have something anyone could enjoy (though many wouldn't admit).
If there was a Firehouse mode with red sirens all around the PF, or a God of Thunder mode with most lights off and occasional lightning, or even a Love Gun sequence where the machine reacts to that 5 second snare riff throughout the song, it would be a damn cool machine.
