The Box Set is a five CD collection of recordings drawn from the KISS archives reportedly selected by the band. The Box Set includes 94 tracks, including 30 previously unreleased band and solo demos, outtakes, and live recordings, and a 120 page color booklet with track-by-track commentary by band members Gene Simmons, Paul Stanley, Ace Frehley, and Peter Criss, detailed track information, photos, and essays.

The Box Set peaked at #128 on the Billboard 200 and was certified gold by the RIAA on December 18, 2001, when it sold 100,000 copies (the set's 5 discs meant that the box only had to ship 100,000 copies for Gold certification)
