KISS made the Top 25 Band Logos of all time landing at #4 according to Spinner.com. Here is the text:
"Lead guitarist Ace Frehley came up with the logo, which first appeared on the band's second album, 'Hotter Than Hell.' Frehley's masterstroke was rendering the final two letters in Kiss as stylized lightning bolts. "
Number 1 went to Prince's "Symbol." Why? I don't know
Actually someone at Spinner should brush up on their history and realize that the band used the logo on their first album, KISS, in 1974 and not on their second album, Hotter Than Hell at first.
