Gene Simmons can fly and breathe fire! Here are his top 10 most demonic KISS Songs

By Matthew Wilkening / Ultimate Classic Rock

For our money, some of the very best Kiss songs feature founding bassist Gene Simmons indulging his demonic side. Don’t get us wrong, we’ve got nothing against songs about sex or rock and roll. But, somehow when the man born as Chaim Witz starts ruminating on the evil within man’s soul, we get scared in a particularly good way. To celebrate Gene’s 64th birthday (Aug. 25, 1949), we take a look at the 10 Most Demonic Gene Simmons Kiss Songs:

10. 'Not for the Innocent' From 'Lick it Up' (1983)
 
"Bad habits drip like honey / No tongue can lick me clean"

Justifiably concerned that having their iconic masked images sold on everything from bedsheets to dolls had softened their image -- to say nothing of the overly poppy music featured on albums like 1979's 'Dynasty' -- Kiss took the greasepaint off and let Gene get down to serious business again on songs like this one. He quickly draws a line in the sand between himself and the nice folks, and over a storming Vinnie Vincent guitar riff, warns the innocent masses that playtime is now over.

Is there anyone cooler than Paul Stanley?, Here are his top 10 ‪‎KISS‬ songs Ultimate Classic Rock

  By Matthew Wilkening / Ultimate Classic Rock

The best Paul Stanley KISS songs show just how important the talent and charisma of the man born Stanley Harvey Eisen are to one of hard rock’s most outrageous and enduring bands.

Think about it, this whole ridiculous circus doesn’t fly without a ringleader who truly believes in the power of rock and roll enough to don warpaint, platform boots, feathers and leather night after night while staring down decades of critical sniping and changing musical trends.

Which is exactly what Stanley has done without falter, even as his bandmates came, went or got caught up in film careers or other outside interests. So here they are, the 10 best songs featuring the true president of KISSnation, Paul Stanley:

10. 'Lick It Up' From: 'Lick it Up' (1983)
 
 We kick off this list with proof positive that Stanley's ability to write catchy anthems didn't leave him when the band's makeup came off in 1983. Throughout the band's "unmasked" era, it was mostly Stanley-fronted tracks like 'Heaven's on Fire,' 'Tears are Falling' and 'Crazy Nights' that kept the band on the charts. 'Lick It Up' -- a "seize the day" anthem for the bedroom --  has proven to be the most enduring song from this era, and remains a highlight of the group's live shows to this day.
