Earlier I mentioned my childhood fixation on KISS drummer Peter Criss. Anyone who’s ever been a KISS fan knows that the band is big on merchandise: KISS dolls, KISS pinball machines, KISS coffins.
Up until now, I was unaware that the band made political endorsements. But, on a popular music site, I saw a link to these KISS-themed Barack Obama T-shirts.
I was going to write that I was shocked that money hungry Gene Simmons actually approved these shirts and risked alienating Republican fans and thus losing a little dough. But, then I browsed through the KISS official merchandise store and found these John McCain T-shirts:
Now that’s the KISS I know. Why choose sides when both sides spend money?
