From the "you've got to be kidding me department." This is courtesy of the guys at blabbermouth:

HOLY CRAP!!! Didn't these guys just rob the fans earlier this year with the 4 cd greatest hits collection in the guitar case? What the hell is going on here (besides the obvious Gene Simmons money making efforts)?

I guess the die hards will actually buy into this, regardless of the fact that they probably have all of these songs on vinyl, 8-track, cassette, mini disc and cd.

Kill me now and bury me in my [b]Kiss[/b] Koffin, please.

I do find it interesting that Gene and Paul allowed Ace's song to be the only one represented from their solo discs. Thought for sure that Gene's "Radioactive" would have been included. Or maybe "Wish Upon A Star", or whichever Disney song he covered ( I've had most of my Kiss memories washed from my brain - they were causing migraines ).

I bet it comes with a booklet - you can always get the obsessed Kiss fans to part with their $$$ if you throw a little booklet at them!

Wait...lemme get this straight. Their biggest album, Alive, is only represented once and that song is a live version, and it doesn't feature their best song, Black Diamond? This is more awful than I'd imagine a KISS greatest hits disk would be. *shudders*

Crazy Craig, I know him, he's a KISS fan to death! (yap, there are things like that out there, for every single conceivable band).
