Rule #160: Contradiction

Look at the picture here of Kiss while listening to the song "I was made for lovin' you" By the same band. That, my friend, is a total contradiction. The image conjures visions of songs about killing baby rabbits or pillaging small villages (or possibly attending a drag party, it's a little confusing). However, the song "I was made for lovin' you" is quite contradictory to the image of the band. If you were to remove the electric guitar, it could pass as an Engelbert Humperdinck song. I'm not implying "I was made for lovin' you" is a bad song. Ok, yes I am. Like most Kiss songs - it sucks. I mean to say, it's no "THUNDERCOON", but I've heard worse. It's just mega contradictory to their image. It's like calling the Pope an atheist. Or calling space exploration an environmental initiative.

On second thought, looking at this picture that I just discovered, maybe that song is too manly for them. Like, what the hell is up with this picture? Peter Criss looks like Paul Stanleys little boy on take your son to work day. I can just hear Stanley now "Thath's it, Peter Crith, raith thoths armth up
 At any rate, it's a contradickshun.
Hmmmmm.... Whatever dude!

In the new world, contradiction simply will not exist.

AND SO IT SHALL BE WRITTEN!

    1. I know, right? I've seen kiss live and if they did that song, I'd expect them to change into a suit and tie.
