KISS Is America's #1 Gold Record Award-Winning Group Of All Time

Rock and Roll Hall of Famers, KISS, who are currently celebrating their 40th anniversary as a band, have now earned more gold album record awards than any American band in the history of the Recording Industry Association of America's (RIAA) gold and platinum awards certifications.

Throughout the last 41 years, KISS has earned 30 gold albums- 26 KISS albums and 4 solo albums that were all released simultaneously- a feat never before achieved by any band. Along with their 30 gold albums, KISS has also earned 14 platinum albums, and three multi-platinum albums.

"Congratulations to KISS — the new gold standard for albums by American bands," said Cary Sherman, Chairman and CEO, RIAA. "What an extraordinary achievement for an enduring band. Forty years later and the band is still rocking. Congratulations to KISS on their gold album milestone and continued success."

KISS- who are backed by longstanding Pearl Artist, Eric Singer- remain one of the most influential bands in the history of rock and roll. Decades of record-breaking tours around the globe have included high-profile appearances at Super Bowl XXXIII, the Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City, the Rockin' The Corps concert dedicated to our troops in Iraq and Afghanistan, special guest appearance on the 2009 "American Idol" finale that boasted 30 million viewers and a 2010 Dr. Pepper Super Bowl commercial and advertising campaign in support of their Hottest Show On Earth tour.

KISS’ last album, Monster, proved that they are still at the top of their game with impressive sales and topping the charts worldwide debuting at No. 3 in the U.S. on The Billboard 200 album chart and Top 10 in twenty other countries. The unparalleled devotion and loyalty of the KISS Army to the "Hottest Band in the World" is a striking testament to the band's unbreakable bond with its fans.
