It would be funny if KISS gets snubbed...again. :)
And I agree, the whole thing is a joke.
Why are rappers and pop stars allowed in.
None of them could rock if they fell into a fvcking quarry.

If it was simply called the Music HOF, then no one would be b****ing, when in fact that is exactly what the RRHOD is. So with that in mind, there are some good acts in there

Even though the "Hall" has indeed become a laughing stock, if Nirvana is honored before Deep Purple, I may have to lose that much more faith in humanity.

Btm: Prepare to lose all faith then. I fully expect Nirvana to be inducted this year. Sad but true my friend.

What a bad a$$ lineup if I ever did see one, although Link Wray should be nominated without a friggin' doubt.

Link Wray and Deep Purple should have been in for decades, def before G n' R and Red Hot Chilli Peppers, never mind all the non-rock sh** that's in. Kiss is also due.
