In 1978 Kiss starred in its own television movie, Kiss Meets the Phantom of the Park. Some 20 years later, the band made an appearance in the eerie cult series Millennium. The episode, titled "…Thirteen Years Later" aired on October 30, 1998. A Kiss concert scene toward the end closed the show with a bang.
Though critics have often dismissed KISS as an exercise in commando marketing and superficial commercial rock, doing so ignores the crucial role the band played in the evolution of hard rock and heavy metal.

From the outset, KISS was first and foremost a business proposition. Simmons and Stanley approached rock’n’roll with the attitude that KISS existed to meet the demands of a specific rock audience, and what that audience responded to was spectacle and simple, visceral rock. KISS played its first Manhattan concert in 1973 and by the following year had been signed to fledgling Casablanca Records.

Heavy touring and three more albums helped build up the band's fan base. Commercial success arrived with KISS's first breakthrough top ten single, the moody ballad "Beth" (written by Peter Criss for his wife Lydia) from the 1975 album Destroyer. Over the next few years KISS dabbled in a variety of projects from live action films to comic books.

In 1980, Peter Criss left to pursue a solo career and was replaced by Eric Carr. This era saw KISS’s career fall into something of a slump. The band experimented with a modified look – a kind of romanticized version of their iconic make-up and costumes and made some musical departures (Music From the Elder) that weren’t entirely successful. In 1983 KISS decided to do away with the make-up all together and recorded Lick It Up. Over the next eight years several line-up shifts changed the face of KISS, and after 11 years in the band Eric Carr died of cancer in 1991, replaced by Eric Singer.

Though they never really broke up, in 1996 KISS reformed with the original lineup and make-up. 1998 saw the release of the tepid Psycho Circus followed by mega-merchandising and a support tour. In 2000 KISS announced its Farewell tour, scheduled to take place in 2001. But just as the band was set to head for Japan and Australia drummer Peter Criss quit the band and was replaced by previous drummer Eric Singer, who donned Criss’s catman makeup. When the band appeared on Rockline later that year, just after the release of its landmark boxed sets, Simmons and Stanley addressed the controversial move.
