How the Kiss Band German Logo was created

 

Ace Frehley designed the original KISS logo after joining the group in 1973.  He changed the two S’s on KISS with lightning bolt-style S’s.  Making it one of the most iconic and recognizable band logo’s in the biz.

 

The logo worked well in every county except Germany.  The problem being that Nazi Germany’s Schutzstaffel otherwise known as the “SS” used a similar lightning bolt logo stylized with the Armanen Sig runes.

 

The similarity between the “SS” logo and KISS’ wasn’t an issue until around 1980, when the Nazi “SS” logo was used in a political ad in West Germany.  KISS decided to modify it prior to a September 1980 tour of West Germany by rounding the edges.
