In 1983, Kiss released their album ‘Lick It Up’, and the first single ‘Lick It Up’ became their first top 20 rock hit when it peaked at #19 on the Billboard Mainstream Rock charts. The music video below premiered on MTV on September 18, 1983, and it was the first music video featuring the band without makeup.
‘Lick It Up’ is also one of the only songs from Kiss’ “unmasked” era that is still regularly played by the band due to its popularity with fans. Personally, we could do without the unmasking, but this song and ‘Heaven’s On Fire’ (another unmasked song) are two of our all time favorites from Kiss!
