Beyond The Masks: 10 Famous Bands Without Their Costumes On

By / 02.28.13

Though it's hard to imagine those nice Jewish boys from New York City with the black and white face paint and giant tongues without their makeup now, the members of Kiss once went 13 years without their "costumes." To drive up enthusiasm for their 1983 album Lick It Up, the Starchild & Co. held a press conference on MTV, where they appeared in public without their makeup for the first time. This lasted until 1996, when Tupac Shakur introduced the group, in full Love Gun attire, at the 38th annual Grammy Awards in 1996. Crazy nights, indeed.

Today is the anniversary of Kiss' resurrection, and in honor, we thought we'd take a look at 10 famous bands, including Gwar and Slipknot, with and without their masks. It's not hard to imagine why they decided to cover up.
