    Eddie, tried to email you but it kept bouncing back to me as “mailbox delivery failure policy error” and I couldn’t send anything. Jut thought you should know. Don’t know if anyone else is having the same issue. My email to you was as follows:


    Here is my top 20 Kiss songs list. I really enjoyed your list but was shocked by some of the picks. I knew you’d go with some deeper tracks but as goes with lists, you inevitably leave out some amazing songs that I actually put in my list. Both of us included Black Diamond, Flaming Youth, Mr. Speed, and C’mon and Love Me!

    Speaking of Flaming Youth, Destroyer was my first Kiss album and Flaming Youth was the song that got me to love Kiss. First time I saw Kiss was on some music trading cards and I thought they were some Gwar or Slayer esq type music. Boy was I wrong hahaha. Destroyer obviously was a letdown for me at first but Flaming Youth was the heaviest song and kept me listening over and over and eventually I came to love the band and Destroyer and become a massive fan of the band. Had I started with Kiss or Rock and Roll Over, I would of been hooked instantly.

    A little quick note… my honorable mentions is a complete alternate top 20 list. So many songs to choose and so brutally hard to pick! So without further ado, my top 20 Kiss list! Enjoy Eddie!

    It’s impossible to narrow so many great songs into a top 20 list. And also the fact that KISS doesn’t get enough credit for their 80’s songs, I decided to make up 2 top 20 lists, my top 20 KISS songs from the 70’s, AND top 20 KISS songs from the 80’s!

      Hey Eddie, I just had an idea for your next Top 20 list, – Van Halen! Maybe 2, a top 20 Van Halen (Roth era) and a top 20 Van Hagar era! Too many great songs from both eras for only 1 top 20! Same problem as KISS, too many great songs for only 1 top 20 list!
