On January 25, 2019, UMe will release Kissworld-The Best Of KISS on CD and digitally, with the standard black vinyl and limited-edition color vinyl being released on March 29th. The collection was previously made available in the United Kingdom in 2017.

KISS, America’s #1 gold-record-award-winning group of all time in every category, has a stunning catalog of rock n’ roll classics. The release of Kissworld-The Best Of KISS comes in time to mark the anniversary of the band’s first show ever performing on January 30th, 1973 to no more than 10 people in attendance at Popcorns, a small club in New York, as well as celebrating the global superstar band as they launch their 2019 End Of The Road final tour at an 18,000-seat major arena on January 31st in Vancouver. Kissworld brings together 20 of KISS’s best-loved tracks together on one album. Iconic fan favorites such as I Was Made For Lovin’ You, Rock And Roll All Nite and God Gave Rock ‘N’ Roll To You II alongside top 10 U.S. chart hits Beth and Detroit Rock City on one huge collection.

KISS is one of the most iconic and influential rock acts of all time. The band have released 44 albums and sold over 100 million records worldwide. Consummate live performers, the band’s illustrious career is marked by record breaking global tours.

Now, after an epic and storied 45-year career that launched an era of rock n’ roll legends, KISS announced that they will embark on their final tour ever in 2019, appropriately named End Of The Road. Paul Stanley, Gene Simmons, Eric Singer and Tommy Thayer announced their plans on NBC’s “America’s Got Talent”, which sent the Internet into overdrive with fans hoping their city would get one final KISS show.

    Really???? Like we need another KI$$ “Best of…”???? And a “Best of” that includes songs off of the albums ‘Sonic Boom” and “Monster”, but doesn’t even have the song “Deuce” on it?????? No F’n way!!

    And no Ace songs….I wonder why not???? They could have at least put “Shock Me” on it since Fake Ace on the “Best of” album cover ‘karaoke’s” that song…

    Maybe this is a preview of the Setlist for the “End of the Road” tour…

  • Keith G on

    Definitely will NOT be getting this! Seriously, how many “Greatest Hits” collections does one band need? The only songs on this record I don’t already have MULTIPLE copies of are the last four. And I definitely don’t need a new version of “Shandi”! PASS!!

    • D.J.H on

      Considering the amount of Aerosmith greatest hits albums there are, maybe KI$$ are trying to release more to be the number 1 act with the most greatest hits albums to go along with being America’s number 1 gold record act…..just a thought.

    It’s beginning to look a lot like KISSmas! πŸ˜‰ This Saturday! Instead of going in chronological order like I usually do, this year I’m going in reverse! Starting with select songs from the 2001 box set, then Psycho Circus, Alive III, Revenge, and all the way back to KISS!
    Merry KISSmas,
    Merry CHRISTmas,
    And happy New year!
    2018 wasn’t really a good year, so here’s to a happy, healthy, and wealthy 2019! Cheers!! πŸ™‚

      …you know, we actually think alike.

    • Doug R. on

      Well, great minds usually do! πŸ˜‰

    • shannon mehaffey on

      …Great Expectations is one of the most overly self indulgent pieces of music ever recorded…it’s a waste of space pretty much. Gene shouldn’t write love songs to himself…lol….really nobody should but Gene actually does…lol..

    • shannon mehaffey on

      Thus, Destroyer is not a great record Doug….Kiss would pull out these booby prizes on their records all the time…be it a ridiculous cover song to close out an otherwise classic Kiss record that put Kiss squarely in the same league as the Bay City Rollers…bad production that sounded like someone put sand in the console….their live records were great; the first two. Stay Frosty Doug R.

    • Doug R. on

      Destroyer IS a great record! You can’t let 1 song overpower the other 9, including Rock And Roll Party! Maybe we don’t think alike after all? πŸ˜‰

    • shannon mehaffey on

      Doug….you are probably the only person I know besides me that would listen to Kiss in chronological order…or make some crazy list in your head about what are the best moments of a band and then attach the songs to a particular era and think about the band that way….we think alike. Doug, the only good aspect of Great Expectations is Peter Criss’s “marching” drum beat where his rare grasp of the backbeat gives the song its charm….that’s it…I don’t know what Ezrin and Stanley were thinking by allowing that on there….I am pretty sure what Gene was thinking…lol…

      Doug, great records don’t have any questionable moments; the whole experience is like perfection. Holy Diver; there’s not one duff moment on the whole record; every note is exactly right. Destroyer is almost a great record.

    • Doug R. on

      Dude, if you really dislike Great Expectations that much, pick up the needle after God Of Thunder, or fast forward to Flaming Youth, or just skip it! But you can’t deny the greatness of Destroyer because of Great Expectations!

    • genesraccoonwig on

      Agree with Shannon – Great Expectations is a turd of a song.

  • RTunes68 on

    (whisper!) there is a small typo in the headline.

    If KISS didn’t already have 120 greatest hits packages, this might actually be worth considering. That said, the track listing and song selections are interesting….No Ace Frehley tracks, nothing pre-Alive, a total deep cut (I’m a Legend Tonight), a song – off an album they don’t even like – that was only a hit in Australia (Shandi)….

      Thank you, as always, for your discretion πŸ™‚

  • Charles Clinchot on

    Wow they really think their fan base is this gullable to sheer out money for greatest hits
    For all we know when the farewell tour starts if Paul is singing great and doesn’t sound like a pet recorded track ang Gene moving around more limber than usual then they replaced themselves are at home laughing all the way to the bank farewell tour with a tribute band I wouldn’t put it past them if I have all original albums and live albums why do I need to shell out for a greatest hits when I could make a playlist on my iPod or back in the day make a mixed cassette tape kiss is kisstory I treasure the past memories

    • tom on

      periods and commas help.. this was almost as bad as listening to van halen 3

    • Dana on


      I am pretty sure, you needed a comma before, Van Halen III. πŸ˜‰

      Happy Holidays.
