The Complete KISS Singles Chart Action, 1974-

A brief introductory note: For US singles, if it isn't listed here then it didn't chart on the Billboard 200 (unless Billboard and/or I have made errors). Data for other countries is from the mainstream music charts, but will give you a good idea of how the albums performed over a period of time. You'll even garner some interesting trivia, like:

"I Was Made For Lovin' You", KISS' second Gold single didn't even make it into the top-10!

Current US RIAA singles tally: 2 Gold Singles

Quick US facts:
Single with longest chart appearance: "Beth" (21 Weeks)
Single with shortest chart appearance: "Let's Put The X In Sex" (2 Weeks)

- means that the particular single wasn't released in that country either/or didn't chart. Hyperlinks should take you to mainstream week-by-week chart positions for that single.

I would eventually like to add Italy, and Japan to this list. Anyone?

· Garth Brooks cover of "Hard Luck Woman," with KISS, reached #67 on the Country Charts!
· "I Was Made For Lovin' You" made it to #2 in South Africa.
· "Psycho Circus" charted in the national Australian charts for two weeks entering the charts at #22 on 9/27/1998. The following week it dropped to #43, and then out of the charts completely; It was followed on 11/29 by "We Are One" which only managed one week on the charts;
· "I Was Made For Lovin' You" was reissued as a single in May 1997 in Germany, it was this single which would briefly chart as the band's tour headed back to Europe to culminate;
