Hair metal killed Hair metal. The music industry flooded the scene with a bunch of dudes in drag. Bands like Pantera were right in the middle of the evolution, then when GnR came along Hair metal died.

'Soulflower', KISS have certainly had a 40 year career with different incarnations of the band. Yes, the original lineup will always be the most significant, however Kiss still did respectable business between 1983 and 1995. No, they weren't the "biggest" band during the aforementioned years but I would never dismiss them as not counting towards the overall longevity of the band. In comparison with some of their contemporaries, that's not a bad track record, so to speak. Respectully, I disagree with your assertion ( ).

However, I can understand how surprised you were regarding KISS' overall influence in rock history. MANY of the artists who cite KISS as an influence aren't mere copies. Which to me is quite complimentary. Most of them went on to develop their own "style", and rightly so. Personally, I don't think one has to be a great musician to have great songs. Likewise, a technically great player can have terrible songs. In other words, influence doesn't always have to be direct. Nor should it be. Still, I look forward to hearing what you think of the songs I suggested earlier. Respect ( ).

Default Should people blame Kiss for killing Rock and Roll?

I think the line between being a influential band and being a band someone listen to or enjoyed can be blurred. And for every [this band] influenced a ton of bands, there are a bunch of other bands that were just influential too. So one has to be careful overemphasizing their importance.

I never care about Kiss. Generally most people are children when go through their Kiss phase before they grow up. When I was a kid my favorites were Big Joe Turner, Chuck Berry and the Rolling Stones. Yes I listen to artists two three generations before my time and it made a me a music elitist at age 12.

Why waste time listening to Kiss when you can listen to Flip Flop and Fly?

I personally think individual opinions are better received when sticking to the critique, instead of constantly critisizing the music by a particular band or artist.
