Gene Simmons continues to find new ways to bastardize the KISS name:
KISSonline.com is reporting:
“The KISS Coffeehouse is releasing KISS Hotter Than Hell Ketchup! The Coffeehouse will be sampling KISS Ketchup and fries at noon on September 6th. Bottles of KISS Habanero Ketchup will be on sale for $7.95 (US).”
It is a sad day when KISS is making condiments instead of new music.

I am not sure why it took so long for me to discover Zebrahead. This Pop/punk/rap core band has had their music in a plethora of movies and video games, and yet they have stayed off of my radar until now.
With their brand new album “Phoenix” the band has a sound that is like a blend of The Offspring, Green Day, and Sum 41. The music does have a little bit of rap in it, but it doesn’t define the music. Zebrahead makes it work for them.
Is this music hard rock? No, it isn’t. I think the harder guitar riffs and rapid fire drum beats will certainly make this music palatable to both hard rock and power pop fans.
The songs on Phoenix are extremely upbeat and easy to listen to.
Typically, I wouldn’t like a lot of music like this, but Zebrahead works for me, as they aren’t trying to sound like any of the acts that I am usually listening to. I have been playing this disc in my car for a couple of weeks now, and I have been surprised how much I have enjoyed this.
Some of the songs have a punk rock style with a heavy edge to them, and some fall more into the pop rock category.
Some of my favorite cuts are “HMP”, “Mental Health”, “The Juggernauts” and “Ignite”
As an added bonus, this CD comes with a DVD, Broadcast the World, the Fucking DVD, that is packed with Zebrahead music videos from their previous releases as well as home videos, and live footage. If you haven’t listened to Zebrahead before, this CD/DVD set is the perfect introduction to the band. I am enjoying Phoenix, and I think you will too.
