Greatest Hits Vol 1 presents lyrics from songs by the American band Kiss. The lyrics along with vertically arranged transparent bandage tape are screen-printed on to canvas. The band is known for its theatrics and is identified by its members' trademark face paint, stage outfits, and elaborate live performances, which featured fire breathing, blood spitting, and smoking guitars. In each of the four worksthe band is stripped of everything except its lyrics and places them in a toned down setting.
