American rock band KISS was formed in New York City back in January of 1973 by Paul Stanley, Gene Simmons, Peter Criss, and Ace Frehley. The band was able to grab attention with its use of full face paint and stage outfits.

They rose to prominence in the mid-to-late 1970s and in addition to their unique look and sound, they became known for their elaborate live performances, which involved insane shenanigans like fire breathing, blood-spitting, smoking guitars, shooting rockets, levitating drum kits, and pyrotechnics.
