It appears Green Bay Packers receiver Donald Driver is meeting himself some celebrities on Dancing With The Stars. He tweeted some photos of himself posing for pictures with various celebrities on Thursday.
We didn’t know who a couple of them were, probably because they reside somewhere on the D List, but we definitely recognized Kiss in full costume and makeup. Is there anywhere these guys won’t go to sell themselves? The answer is no. They were on the goddam country music awards a couple weeks ago and I don’t remember them singing one song that’s remotely country.
Driver also posed with Florence Henderson (at least we think that’s her). You’d probably know her better as Carol Brady on The Brady Bunch.
Anyway, favorite Kiss song? I’d go with “I Was Made For Lovin’ You” or “Lick It Up,” although “Love Gun” is a perfectly acceptable answer as well.
If you’re unaware, here’s the obligatory thread of Kiss videos.
KISS has to be the most untalented bunch of d-bags ever. Every time I hear one of their shitty songs, I contemplate putting a bullet through my head. They are good at one thing, and it’s selling dolls and other useless toys. Their music is awful.
Youre right Mike, most artists that make it into the Rock and Roll HOF put out nothing but shitty music…
Yes, who can forget such genius lyrics as…
Let’s put the X in sex
Love’s like a muscle and you make me wanna flex!
Mike…. woah, man. Step away from your recording of MMMbop, and join the rest of humanity.
KISS may be old as dirt, and sellouts to such a level that they make Metallica look like The Ramones, but they have some pretty good effin music.
That is ironic that you mention it, Monty, because hardcore KISS fans typically hate “I was Made for Lovin You.” I, on the other hand, put it up there with “Hard Luck Woman,” “Beth,” and “Heaven’s On Fire” as the best KISS songs ever.
That’s because “I Was Made For Lovin’ You” is on Dynasty, which most consider Kiss’ disco album, but listen to it. It kicks ass. “2000 Man” is also a personal favorite. Of course, this is one of the first albums I listened to when I was a wee bastard. 8-track on a Dynamite Box. If you know what that is, you’re old like I am. I also have a soft spot for “Heaven’s On Fire.” Animalize was the first cassette tape I owned. Granted, they’re shills and yes, they’ve made some crap. Frankly, I’ll never have any respect for Gene Simmons.
Despite all that, Kiss still kicks ass!
Iltarion you get 100 internet points today for that comment, fuck yea boss.
D-bags? Todays dickless wonders(see Coldplay and Maroon5 ) can’t hold a candle to Kiss. These dudes of moderate musical talent and average looks laid miles of pipe in their day. Fuck all of todays Metrosexual Rockers.
Mike must be a Nickleback fan
The moderator can suck my balls.
Nickleback can suck my balls.
The Rock n’ Roll HOF has a ton a credibility. Nothing says rock like recent inductees Madonna, Abba, and the Beastie Boys.
I don’t doubt that KISS has laid plenty of chicks, that still doesn’t mean their music doesn’t suck.
Mike returns to fire back. I like that.
Granted, not everyone in the HOF made great music in my estimation either, but the HOF is about more than just Rock otherwise Bob Dylan and Neil Young wouldn’t be there, among others.
Though her music should have never left the 80s, Madonna is the most successful female artist of all time. You can hardly keep her out of a HOF for the industry.
ABBA had about 20 hits, including a song in the rare EPIC category with “The Winner Takes it All.” As big as they were here, ABBA also happened to be about ten times that big in Europe.
Beastie Boys? Yeah, I have no clue with that one. I guess cause they were pioneers that helped bring rap, God help us, to the white audience. That’s about all I got there.
Yeah, they don’t exactly say rock, but you know who does? KISS.
“And even though I’m full of SIN.
In the end, you’ll let me in.
You’ll let me through, there is nothing you can do.
You need my lovin, don’t you know its true.
So answer please, get on your knees.
There are no bills, there are no fees.
Baby, I know what your problem is.
The first step of the cure is- a KISS.”
They also call me Dr. Love… from time to time.
As Stifler said in Role Models:
These are four of the smartest guys who ever lived.
They’re these Jewish guys that grew up in New York,
and they put on guitars and makeup to get girls,
and all of their songs are about fucking!
I never really got into Kiss but I’d agree that their music is better than that of most of the modern day jerk-offs that call themselves rockers. (ie Nickelback) Bands like Green Day and Red Hot Chili Peppers are the real deal and remain relavent. Their a dying breed.
