NBC Explains KISS To The Viewing Audience Of 1977

KISS seems fairly tame by today’s standards, since Black and Death Metal have taken rock to far darker places than KISS ever could, but back in 1977 those four guys in the facepaint and crazy getups caused quite a stir.

Parents didn’t want their kids listening to that filth, church groups didn’t like hearing about a group of guys acting like demons on stage, and the moral majority found their act repugnant.

In an effort to explain away the scariness NBC created a mini-documentary entitled KISS: Land of Hype and Glory, which revealed that Gene Simmons and the gang are just a bunch of regular guys with a gimmick.
