JT’s Ultimate Mixtape: KISS covers edition


It is truly amazing the scope of KISS’ influence on pop music. Hard rock, bubblegum pop, rap, and country artists all devoured the music of KISS, and many paid tribute to “the hottest band in the world” by covering their songs. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, but it is even more enjoyable when you can take another group’s song and make it your own. Below are some of the bands that have attempted to channel their inner Demon/Star Child/Spaceman/Cat through their own interpretations of KISS classics. For the purposes of this “Ultimate Mixtape,” I have decided to exclude songs that appear only on multi-band tribute albums devoted entirely to KISS. Also, to prevent a mixtape of twenty different versions of “Detroit Rock City,” each song may only appear once in the list.

This is a very short list; what songs have I missed? What other versions of the songs above trump my selections?

Still hungry for more KISS covers? Check out these tribute albums:
