What Do KISS Look Like Without Makeup?

KISS have been around for 40 friggin’ years. Formed in 1973, KISS became one of the biggest rock bands in the world with classic albums such as ‘Destroyer’ and ‘Love Gun’ before choosing to nix the makeup in 1983.

The group made their first public appearance without makeup on Sept. 18, 1983. The MTV special revealing the faces of KISS turned out to be somewhat anticlimactic after a massive buildup, because it turns out that human faces really aren’t as interesting as anonymity. KISS eventually brought the makeup back, much to the joy of fans, and the band still tours and puts out albums to this day.
