KISS: #1 Gold Record Award-Winning Group Of All-Time

September 15, 2015

KISS is celebrating its 40th anniversary and according to the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), they’ve sold more gold albums than any American band in their history. Or should I say KISStory.


In 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). KISS has 14 platinum albums, with three albums being multi-platinum.

“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 were inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame in April of 2014 and for their 40th anniversary, they’ve released “Kiss 40”, an album celebrating 40 years of rock and roll (available now).
