    Will KISS finally make it into Rock and Roll Hall of Fame

    Five of these bands will get in.

    ABBA, Darlene Love, Donna Summer, Genesis, Jimmy Cliff, KISS, Laura Nyro, LL Cool J, Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Chantels, The Hollies, and The Stooges.


    Chili Peppers are a shoe-in. Probably Genesis. Wouldn't be surprised to see Donna Summer get in. Perhaps Abba.

    It would be a damn sad if KISS couldn't crack the top five of this group.

    Why should Kiss even have to compete with LL cool J for induction in the ROCK AND ROLL HOF?

    And why is RUn DMC in the hall?

    The answers to these questions and more after the coming apocalypse.....

    Rock & Roll Hall of Fame is a joke with the members they have, however I will say that I am shocked that Laura Nyro is not in there already...terrific songwriter.

    I agree completely.

    With that said....

    KISS is the musical equivalent of Wierd Al. A joke act.

    They are the shiney plastic chesse on your McBurger. Might taste ok if you're in the mood, but no one is going to confuse it for real cuisine.

    The fact that Rush isn't in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is borderline criminal.

    I think there were many better bands than Kiss but that is a bit strong.

    You have to remember the era they were performing in too....

    Disco was king.

    Detroit Rock city, bro!

    I'm not sure what planet I was on during Rush and Kiss' pinacle, but it certainly could not have been Earth, because I don't get the love.

    Two of the worst bands I have ever heard.

    Perhaps you were under your covers listening to your Laura Nyro 45's and penning love missives to your companion.

    LOL. Most chicks have the same reaction, too, JW. Not that I'm saying you're a chick.

    Nyro is a talented singer/songwriter. I just don't think her body of work warrants inclusion in the Hall of Fame.

    Good post, JW. Like I said, she's talented, no doubt. I just don't see the Hall for her.

    In the old days (and if you weren't a mod) you would have been banned for this post.
