It's no secret that  KISS  supports the efforts of the U.S. armed forces so it was only fitting that when  Gene Simmons  was asked to sing "The Star-Spangled Banner" before a Los Angeles Dodgers game, he shared the spotlight with some USO members.

Before Monday night's game against the Colorado Rockies, Simmons performed an a capella version of the national anthem with five USO singers, harmonizing and throwing heavy-metal devil horns at the end of the song. 

KISS and Simmons have long been vocal in their support for the troops. KISS recently announced that their 2014 tour crew -- like their 2012 tour crew -- would  include two specially-recruited veterans . The band has also  played special free concerts  for armed forces members and their families.
