We’re throwing this in not because KISS is a metal band (they were at least a hard rock band at one point in time), but because of the song itself. The song that leads off Destroyer is a classic, about a teenager that was killed in a car crash on his way to a KISS concert. It was originally released a single, where the b-side, “Beth,” became a much bigger hit. The song is a fan favorite, and was the subject of a 1999 film.
