Gene Simmons: Kiss Kasket

In 2001, KISS unveiled the newest addition to a range of products which already included everything from lunch pails and credit cards to action figures: the Kiss Kasket, a $4,500-$5,000 coffin featuring a fiery portrait of the band, along with the words "KISS FOREVER" emblazoned on the side.

KISS frontman Gene Simmons, who once boasted of having slept with some 4,500 women, denied that the caskets were sold in poor taste. "You wanna consider me a whore?" he retorted. "I say thank you -- at least a whore has the self-respect to tell you what she's going to cost beforehand, and that she won't do anal. Whores are honest businessladies!"

Simmons also pointed out that a waterproof, laminated steel Kiss Kasket could readily double as a handy beer cooler. "What happens if on Sunday afternoon you're having the guys over for a ball game and you want a drink?" he asked. "You should be able to open your Kiss Kasket and grab a cold one!"
