“Lick It Up” is the eleventh studio album by American band Kiss. On the day of its 1983 release, the band members appeared on MTV without their trademark make-up. It was the first public appearance without make-up by Kiss since their very early days. “Lick It Up” built upon the harder sound Kiss had displayed on 1982’s “Creatures Of The Night”. But while “Creatures Of The Night” was a commercial disappointment for Kiss, “Lick It Up” sold much better. It was certified gold on December 22, 1983, the first Kiss album to achieve certification since 1980’s “Unmasked”.
