Kiss Keep Merchandising Mania Alive With Special Edition M&M's

August 3, 2009 3:30 PM ET

Blabbermouth has the lowdown on a piece of Kiss merchandising that's actually tasty, rather than tasteless: Kiss M&M's. The limited-edition chocolates are due in October, in time for Halloween — which the band will spend rocking New Orleans' Voodoo Festival, as Rock Daily reported. Plus, the band's new disc, which Paul Stanley promised "rocks big time!" should be ready pretty soon, according to our calculations.

So where do the M&M's rank in the pantheon of Kiss Kollectibles? Take a look back at the Rock List you readers voted on last year, and a gallery of Kiss' best:

“Money For Nothing”

Dire Straits | 1984

Mark Knopfler wrote this song with Sting, and it wasn’t without controversy. The Dire Straits frontman's original lyric used the word “faggot” to describe a singer who got their “money for nothing and their chicks for free.” Even though the slur was edited out in many versions, the band, and Knopfler, still took plenty of criticism for the term. “I got an objection from the editor of a gay newspaper in London--he actually said it was below the belt,” Knopfler told Rolling Stone. Still, "Money For Nothing," undoubtedly augmented by its innovative early computer-animated video, stayed at Number One for three weeks.
