A joke from “Buffy” (S3E6):

A huge inscription is spray-painted on the lockers “Kiss rocks”. Willow says: “ "Kiss rocks"? Why would anyone want to kiss... Oh, wait. I get it.”

Well, I don’t get it!

"KISS" is a rock band. To "rock" is to be excellent at performing rock music. (or by extension, to be excellent in general).

So this is saying "The Rock band "KISS" are excellent".
