Gene Simmons - Black Lips blast KISS for 'misogynistic' lyrics

Black Lips have slammed KISS for being ''misogynistic''.

The garage rockers ambushed a recent live Q&A with 'Kiss' frontman Gene Simmons to criticise the legendary band for their supposedly offensive lyrics.

Lead singer Jack Hines - who painted his face black and white in mockery of the group - told the HuffPost Live: ''Mr Simmons! We're here to tell you that the day of misogynistic, sexist rock'n'roll is over.

''We call for the complete and utter surrender of the Kiss army. Lay down your guitars! Do you accept our terms of surrender?''

However, Simmons was unwilling to surrender ground on the issue and instead chose to belittle the group for broadcasting their grievances from their ''mum's basement''.

The 64-year-old rocker quipped: ''I wanted to compliment your mum for the wonderful way that she designed the decoration on the basement she lets you live in.

''I think it's very attractive. I hope you get to leave your mum's basement soon.''

Simmons advised the band to ''learn to speak English'' and also suggested that the name Black Lips was racist as they are white.
