KISS buys professional football team Published: August 16, 2013

Here’s an unusual story: KISS, the multimedia corporate product-spewing behemoth that used to be a rock band has bought its very own professional football team in Los Angeles, according to Yahoo Sports.

The site reports the team will be dubbed the L.A. KISS. And their helmet designs are going to be amazing. As incentive, the band will play a private concert for season-ticket holders.

“As a fast-paced, high-action band, this partnership with the AFL was an obvious fit for us,” Gene Simmons said in a statement. “With Arena Football, you are much closer to the action — sitting in the front row is like putting a folding chair on the hash mark of an NFL game — and it’s one of the only sports where you can experience this level of intensity. Attending an LA KISS game in 2014 will be similar to a live KISS show, with thrilling, heart-pounding action.”
