The problem with KISS is that all their songs sound a whole lot better when preformed by other people.
The Doors weren't all the influential. Great band but didn't inspire too many others to continue expanding on the genre.

As for the Who, there's probably a half dozen bands from the same scene in England that were more influential, let alone in rock history. The biggest contribution they made was when Pete Townsend discovered Hendrix.

It's been discussed here before. Everybody loves to bag on KISS. They brought a lot of it on themselves. But when it comes right down to it, about the only band that gets mentioned more when the "influence" question comes up is the Beatles. Scott free is 100% right.
