KISS music banned from Triple M radio
2014-08-18 by Daniel Dias | 190 Comments
Gene Simmons, iconic co-founder of american hard rock band KISS, had some controversial
statements lately about suicidal people. Simmons told Songfacts that he doesn't
have any respect or sympathy for drug addicts and alcoholics. "I don't get along with
anybody who's a drug addict, has a dark cloud over his head and sees himself as a victim.
Drug addicts and alcoholics are always saying 'The world's a harsh place'. My mother was
in a concentration camp in Nazi Germany. I don't want to hear sh*t about how 'the world's
a harsh place'. She gets up every day, smells the roses and loves life. And for a 20 year
old kid to say 'I'm depressed, I'm from Seattle', well f*ck you, just kill yourself. I
just can never understand, because I call them on their bluff. I'm the guy who says
'Jump!' when there's a guy on top of a building who says, 'That's it, I can't take it, I'm going to jump.' Are you kidding? Why are you announcing it? Shut the f*ck up, have
some dignity and jump! You've got the crowd."


Mötley Crue's co-founder and bassist Nikki Sixx already called Gene Simmons' comments
"moronic". In his Sixx Sense With Nikki Sixx radio show, Nikki replied:
"He thinks everybody listens to him, he thinks that he is the god of thunder and he
will tell you that he is the greatest man on earth. And, to be honest with you, I like
Gene and I like KISS. But in this situation, I don't like Gene's words, because there is a 20-year-old kid out there who is a KISS fan, who reads this and goes, 'You know what? He's right. I should just kill myself.' I got off the drugs and alcohol and it was the hardest thing I ever did in my life. I didn't think I could ever be off the heroin, to be honest with you. I pretty much started to go deeper and deeper and deeper into a depression. So I went to a therapist. And it was the first time I had ever been to a therapist.

And I said, 'I just feel hopeless.' Now, if I went to see Gene Simmons, he would have
said, 'Well, you know, Nikki, if you're depressed, you should just kill yourself.' But
this therapist said, 'Hey, there are ways out.' He gave me an experimental drug at the
time called Prozac, and it got me on the right path. And then I got off of it. And I got
out of my depression. I did not take that way out."


Triple M network head Mike Fitzpatrick called Gene Simmons a "d*ckhead", and issued a statement via Triple M's official website: "Gene Simmons' recent comments are
misguided and insensitive. Depression and suicide are not topics he should be using to
further his notoriety or sell records. His desperation to use mental health issues to find relevancy in a modern age is sickening. I can only put it down to a brain fade on his part. The Triple M Network can't and won't be playing or supporting this d*ckhead's music. I put the challenge out to other stations across Australia and North America to also drop any of this nudnik's songs until such time as he reconsiders his insensitive position."


Gene Simmons already tried to clarify his words via his Facebook page: "To the extent
my comments reported by the media speak of depression, I was wrong and in the spur of the
moment made remarks that in hindsight were made without regard for those who truly suffer
the struggles of depression. I sincerely apologize to those who were offended by my
comments. I know that depression is very serious and very sad when it happens to anyone,
especially loved ones. I deeply support and am empathetic to anyone suffering from any
disease, especially depression."
After Gene's statement was published, Nikki Sixx also used his Facebook page to compliment Gene. He also added: "This has turned into a bit of an anti-Gene Simmons bashathon and I don't condone that nor do I support that radio stations across the country who are banning KISS (the guys in the band didn't do
anything)."

Look bro, I've been through some pretty shitty situations in my life and it's only natural for most people like me to judge the justification of other people's suicides. Many reasons are justifiable, very many - mental illness among them. But there are some which I simply can't find justifiable. How insensitive of me.

the guy obviously doesn't understand what a depression is. Good for him, but his ignorant comments are nevertheless good for nothing. I'm not endorsing suicide, but it's just silly to think you are the better man for sayin: why don't you jump already. It is quite hypocritical really. enjoy life etc.

If someone commits suicide over their first s/o, they're obviously mentally ill. Please. Keep talking.

"you might be prejudiced to someone who sees negativity in the world"

ye actually believe it or not, i spend most of my thinking moments worrying about where the world is going, to the point where everyone's telling me I shouldn't be giving so much fuck about things that directly affect me so little. so there ya go.

Ok, so they can't just be impulsive, have a strong tendency to overreact and not think before they act?

doesn't matter if they can. your point in all of this has been that you always assume that's the case. that makes you as ignorant as gene simmons.

Well the problem is that I've known quite a few such people too, and for the life of me, I've never been able to pinpoint just what the fuck is wrong with them. None of those were suicidal, though. I also knew some suicidal people, but their reasons all seemed valid to me

"obviously your problem is accepting that mental states you have never experienced exist at all"

I think you hit the nail on the head there, this might very well be the case.

And no, I don't think depressed people should kill themselves because they're depressed, because it's not their fault that they have such thoughts. As for people with personality disorders who act on impulse... well, most people have at least one slight personality disorder, many have even several serious ones and can't be assed to treat them throughout their whole lifetime. And most people think they're just fucked up, but not actually sick. Personality disorders are just extreme forms of personalities, after all. So I don't think you can say that if someone with borderline kills themselves you can just handwave it by saying "he was mentally ill".

uhuh so you're still making badly thought out judgments based on your vague understanding of the subject

which is what you've been doing the whole thread

if you really want an opinion on this, educate yourself. buy a book. buy a for dummies guide. whatever. stop spitting stupid statements which you then try to awkwardly backtrack on cos even you know you have no idea what you're talking about
