Kiss Make Big Bucks In Merchandising

KISS, one of the most influential rock bands of all time, will gross a reported $10 million from the sales of all KISS-related retail items. During 1997, KISS' camp immersed the market with novelty items ranging from the standard T-shirts and posters to the more outrageous place mats, dartboards and even condoms, USA Today reported.

Some of the KISS products start as low as $6 (a KISS makeup kit) to the higher end items like a $650 leather jacket or a $1,300 golf bag.
