AC/DC for sure. When i think of KISS i more so thnk purely about there image more so then there music. Although when it comes down to music AC/DC seems to have more emotion/feeling/meaning to there lyrics and music.

Paul Stanley has incredible range and power. He's very underrated. If you take the time to listen to Paul Stanley, you will see he is a gifted singer. I think you're wrong in this aspect.

I definitely know you're wrong here. LOL. Gene Simmons is an a**, no doubt about it, but he is a good bass player. Far better than Cliff Williams. Focus on the bassline of any KISS song, and do the same with AC/DC, and you will hear the difference.

Gene often mimics the guitar, which isn't all too hard when you think about it.

Not that Cliff is any better.

I'm basically saying AC/DC knew their limits as musicians, KISS did not.

I have listened to both bands for years, and own a huge collection of albums from both bands. If I had to choose one band from the two that I could listen to, it would be KISS. I have seen them in concert, and they put on a great show.

I'll dissect them musician wise:

Vocals - AC/DC > Kiss ... This is really subjective.

Guitar - AC/DC > Kiss ... I prefer the Young brothers to Kiss' guitarwork

Bass - Kiss > AC/DC ... Gene Simmons is a decent bassist, even if he is a money whore. At least, he's better than Cliff Williams.

Drums - Kiss > AC/DC ... AC/DC's drumming has always been rather plain and Phil Rudd is often known as the drummer who never played a fill. But he does the job expected for a minimalist rock band. But Peter Criss had some more interesting drumwork (check out the Carr Jam '81 on the Revenge album - it's not a bad drum solo).


Overall, I definitely prefer AC/DC and have never really liked Kiss much. Kiss has never really been about the music.

Neither Criss or Rudd are that great on drums, at least Rudd knows better than to do a solo.... Advantage = Rudd.

I almost hate to say this, because it's so obvious, but Eric Carr did Carr Jam, not Peter Criss.


and boo boo's just a KISS hater, so he'll always find a way to be against them. LOL.

I don't hate KISS by any means... In fact... There are probably only 20 or so bands that i can honestly say i hate.... Because i like most things... Like i said before... I think KISS are great in a "music to play when you're drunk at a frat party" kind of way.... I just don't find much to admire in their actual music, no personal agenda against them in any way.

Technically??.. Shucks, i have never actually devoted my time to measuring the accuracy of their time meters and fills... So i can't honestly say i know who actually is better, can you?... Again neither are anything special, i never said Rudd was better, just that he has a certain advantage that helps AC/DCs case for being a better ensemble, this i already explained.
