The Art of Greed.

Kiss frontman Gene Simmons is awaiting the signal from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office after he filed an application Friday for a trademark on a hand gesture.

Rock fans are probably familiar with the sight. Here's the drawing that's included in the application:

According to Simmons, this hand gesture was first used in commerce Nov. 14, 1974.

That appears to correspond with Kiss' Hotter Than Hell tour.

On the road to registration, Simmons might have other obstacles besides John Lennon..

After this development there has been a steam of bands and artist trying to patent similar gestures or items. Here's a couple...

Then sign me up for the middle finger gesture - "Fuck You" We are Overkill and we made that, man!"

Me and D.D took months to come up with such an epic gesture.

when asked about his ridiculous lawsuit he stated...

You know, I don't like to be a dead fish, swimming with all the other dead fish, I like to go upstream sometimes, against the flow."

Ritchie focus, what the fuck are you talking about? he goes on to say..

"I'm definitely not a guy that comes in the dressing room saying, "Hey, everybody, what a wonderful life." I'm usually brooding about something I think is wrong. I care so much about getting the music right, and if I think someone's slacking I get very upset about that. I just can't go on stage and say, "Another day, another dollar," which I've heard a few people say: I can't go along with that at all. It's got to be as good as you can do - to my own detriment.

Related imagedressing room? Do you hate LGBT people Ritchie? Is this why you are suing?

" I have never met one person who likes Grand Funk".

What does that mean?

"Well, you know how there’s that thing in gay-bar culture, the handkerchief code, where which side you wear a bandana says something about your preferences. Left side is for tops and right side for bottoms. I wasn’t sure if there was something similar..."

So you hang out at gay bars Richie? "Everything I do is usually totally spontaneous."

Are you of sound mind and body Ritchie? Is Dimentia kicking in? Did you take your meds today?

"When something is not good, it's bad. Period he says."

We give up! Ritchie is off his rocking chair abviously. Two sandwiches short of a picnic basket. Off the reservation....

There are exceptions to this nonsense and Perry Farrell is one of those....oh wait, he did what? Oh boy..

Farrell, however, is cool with letting others use the word as long as they're not actually trying to rip him off, because it simply cost him too much money on lawyers to sue everyone who put "-palooza" at the end of every word.

During the first Lollapalooza tour in 1991, Perry Farrell and Dave Navarro got into a fight onstage and began violently bumping each other mid-song. They walked off stage but came back on for an encore, during which they began fighting again resulting in Navarro throwing his guitar into the crowd..

I love being able to escape my past, even though my past was great..says Farrell

As you can see you can't stop people from making an ass out of themselves and trying to make a quick dollar.
