About Kiss

The original lineup of Gene Simmons (bass and vocals), Paul Stanley (rhythm guitar and vocals), Ace Frehley (lead guitar and vocals) and Peter Criss (drums and vocals) is the most successful and identifiable. With their makeup and costumes, they took on the personas of comic book-style characters - the Demon (Simmons), the Star Child (Stanley), the Space Ace (Frehley), and the Cat Man (Criss). Due to substance abuse problems and creative differences, both Criss and Frehley were out of the group by 1982. The band's commercial fortunes had also waned considerably by that point.

In 1983, Kiss abandoned their makeup and enjoyed a commercial resurgence throughout the rest of the decade. Buoyed by a wave of Kiss nostalgia in the 1990s, the band announced a reunion of the original lineup (with makeup) in 1996. The resulting Kiss Alive/Worldwide Tour was the top-grossing act of 1996. Criss and Frehley have since left Kiss again, and have been replaced by Eric Singer and Tommy Thayer, respectively. The band continues to perform, while Stanley and Simmons have remained the only two constant members.


Song 1: Psycho Circus


Psycho Circus by Kiss.

Album Title:
Psycho Circus (1998) by KISS


Scene:
Psycho Circus can be heard during the following scenes in the Millennium episode ...Thirteen Years Later:

Heard when it is performed by KISS on stage.


Details:

"Psycho Circus" is a song by the American hard rock band Kiss. It is the title track from the 1998 album with the same name. The b-side is the non-album track "In Your Face", a song written by Kiss bassist/vocalist Gene Simmons and sung by lead guitarist Ace Frehley.

"Psycho Circus" was written by guitarist/vocalist Paul Stanley and collaborator Curt Cuomo specifically to fit the theme of the Psycho Circus Tour and album. According to producer Bruce Fairbairn, "We didn't have an opener for the record. We didn't have anything that was going to start things off. And [Paul] just looked at me and said, 'check this. This is it...' We both sat there and looked at each other and started to laugh. Because that was it".

A video was made to promote the single, which was made in the same 3-D theme as the album and tour, and was directed by James Hurlburt and produced by Doc McGhee and Eddie Vasker. The video was ignored by MTV.

As a single, the song did not make an appearance in the Billboard Hot 100 in the United States, although it would prove to be a Top Ten hit in other countries in the world, including Canada and Norway.

The song would open sets for the band on the Psycho Circus Tour to support the album, and was performed on Kiss's live album Kiss Symphony: Alive IV in 2003.

"Psycho Circus" was nominated for a Grammy Award in 1999 for best Hard Rock Performance, although they lost out to Jimmy Page and Robert Plant as their track "Most High" got the award.


Extended Information:

"I shot a whole music video with Kiss during that episode. We were going to cut it as a music video. In fact, Kiss wanted it done as a music video for them. The material that we shot - it was terrific... We shot it in half a day, their music number, and it was pretty wild, but it was fun. It was a lot of fun. They were great."

Thomas J. Wright - Episode Director (DVD Commentary)

YEAHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!
Hello
Here I am!
Here we are,we are one
I've been waiting for this night to come
Get up!
Now it's time for me to take my place
The make-up runnin' down my face
We're exiled from the human race.

You're in the psy
You're in the psycho circus
You're in the psy
You're in the psycho circus
I say welcome to the show.

I've been waiting here to be your guide
So come
Reveal the secrets that you keep inside
Step up!
No one leaves 'til the night is done
The amplifier starts to hum
The carnival has just begun.

You're in the psy
You're in the psycho circus
You're in the psy
You're in the psycho circus
Yeah I say welcome to the show
Welcome to the show
Welcome to the show
The show.

I, I've been waiting here to be your guide
Some come
Reveal the secrets that you keep inside
Step up!
No one leaves 'til the night is done
The amplifier starts to hum
The carnival has just begun.

You're in the psy
You're in the psycho circus
You're in the psy
You're in the psycho circus
You're in the psy
You're in the psycho circus
You're in the psy
You're in the psycho circus
And I say welcome to the show
Welcome to the show
Welcome to the show
And I say welcome to the show.
