Watch out, it's a bomb and it's falling on KISS

Worst marketing idea in years. This CD will bomb almost as bad as Ashley Tisdale's Guilty Pleasure. Another way of reading this is no label will touch KISS, so they've "re-recorded" (what you have to do when you move to a new label) oldies.

NEW YORK – Wal-Mart is being embraced with a Kiss.

The veteran heavy metal group, Kiss, is joining a growing list of classic acts putting out new music through the world's largest retailer.

"Sonic Boom" is due to be released only at Wal-Mart and Sam's Club on Oct. 6. It will include a CD of the band's first new music in 11 years, re-recorded versions of famous Kiss hits and a live DVD.

Other classic acts that have chosen to release albums through Wal-Mart include the Eagles, AC/DC and Foreigner.
