Check it out in the YouTube clip below.
KISS members Gene Simmons, Paul Stanley, Eric Singer and Tommy Thayer voice their own characters in the movie, which focuses on a Halloween concert at the group's amusement park Kiss World.
KISS spoke to IGN at this week's Comic-Con International in San Diego, California about their involvement with "Scooby-Doo! And Kiss: Rock And Roll Mystery". Check out the chat below.
KISS previously appeared on a 2003 Halloween episode of "What's New, Scooby-Doo?"
In a 2010 interview with Spin, Stanley spoke about how KISS has always been forward thinking about things like branding and merchandising.
"The business side of the band is something that other bands can't do," he said. "They can't do it. It's not of interest to their fans. No one wants an EAGLES belt buckle."
He continued: "KISS has always been outside of the borders of what other bands can do. Not that some of these other bands wouldn't want to do it — the fact that they may snicker or look down their noses at what we do is more out of jealously than anything else."
