Though it went gold, the album appealed neither to die-hard Kiss fans nor to pop radio listeners. But it was "Hard Luck Woman" by Garth Brooks that is generally considered the most popular from the set. It is also the only track where Kiss actually performs as the backing band.
Kiss My Ass: Classic Kiss Regrooved is a tribute album , featuring a variety of artists covering songs by the American rock band Kiss. Released to coincide with Kiss' 20th anniversary, the album was certified gold by the RIAA ,  and spent 13 weeks on the charts. The rights to Ace Frehley 's makeup were not cleared in time for release of the CD, hence the inclusion of a hybrid form of Paul Stanley 's "Bandit" design that was briefly used in some early shows and promotional photos.
