KISS Unplugged
Kiss Unplugged is a Kiss album featuring the group performance in MTV Unplugged.

On August 9, 1995, hard rock band Kiss performed on MTV Unplugged in what fans consider the beginning of the eventual Kiss Reunion Tour. Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons contacted former members Peter Criss and Ace Frehley and invited them to participate in the event. Fan reaction to Criss and Frehley at the Unplugged show was so positive that, in 1996, the original lineup of Kiss reunited, with all four original members together for the first time since 1980. It also marked the only time the original lineup performed live without their trademark makeup, other than at Ace Frehley's wedding, and was also the only time Frehley and Criss shared a stage with Eric Singer and Bruce Kulick. Further, it was the first time Eric Singer had part of a lead vocal (shared with Peter Criss on Nothin' To Lose).

On March 12, 1996, the concert was released on CD, and on the Kissology Volume Three: 1992–2000 DVD set, which was released December 18, 2007. This included the original DVD release of the concert plus five previously unreleased songs: "Hard Luck Woman" (with Paul Stanley on vocals), "Heaven's on Fire", "Spit", "C'mon and Love Me" and the infamous country version of "God of Thunder".

The LP version of this album includes a poster and some were pressed on yellow marbled vinyl
