These artists released their first recording in 1974, which made them first eligible for the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 1999 (which would be the 2000 Induction Ceremony).

Donna Summer must get in! How dare they put bloody John Mellencamp in before the Queen! Treason! 2008's inductees sucked! The Ventures in before Chic? Dave Clark Five in before Beastie Boys? What's going on?!?!?!?!?!

Whether you like a band or not, induction should be based on musical impact, and sales. Given those criteria, there is no reason KISS should not be in the Rock N Roll Hall of Fame.

Kiss belongs in the hall at some point. Every rocker listened to them at some point and their live shows are legendary.

Kiss is a legenday group that has managed to survive each decade. How many goups have been one hit wonders? KISS is a bonafide Hall of Fame group!

KISS is a nail jammed into my brain.

KISS literally changed the face of Rock n' Roll!!! The Hall of Fame is a joke!! I mean Run DMC???? By the way, DMC was not hip hop, they were RAP!!! It's absolutely pathetic for them to be even nominated. I've. been a KISS fan since I was 7 years old in 1977! Ace Frehley is my guitar GOD because he plays with feeling. Sure he can play a thousand notes as fast as anyone. But, what's the point. Paul Stanley has one of the greatest rock voices of all time. You can actually understand him. And don't get me started on the shows!!! If you've been there, nothing needs to be said.. I was there 8 times!!! KISS is the Rock n, Roll Hall of Fame!!!

Those people who complain about the lack of newly eligible artists today should be aware that not one artist who released their first record in 1974 has been inducted to the Rock Hall - a fact obscured by Donna Summer's recent position on the ballot.

You have to ask a question first. Who is making these choices who and when will a band get in the RRHOF. Now, Dave Marsh is one of the critics, hmmm, the only good thing that he did was write few articles in Creem magazine. And even then, he never gave KISS the respect that they deserved. So, I have one thing to say: Dave Marsh take your head of of your ASS and see what the people admire and love and listen to. (BRUCE SPRINSTEEN IS NOT GOD BUDDY) Let the people decide who should get in. IT IS DIGUSTING THAT BANDS LIKE JUDAS PRIEST AND KISS ARE NOT IN RRHOF. SHAME ON YOU. peter

Brian Eno (or maybe as a Non-Performer), KISS. Judas Priest is a must. Donna Summer, probably.

So in this class we have Bad Company who the Hall will give points to for name recognition (Paul Rodgers) then we have the multi-talented Billy Swan who is probably more deserving as a Non-Performer or Sideman than Performer but will fall short due to lack of name recognition. Next up is Brian Eno, probably more deserving as a Non-performer but is still on the outside looking in with his main outfit, Roxy Music. Chris Rea is good but the committee will consider him not good enough for the Hall. After that the Female Barry Gibb Award goes to Donna Summer and the Golden Raspberry Award to Gloria Gaynor. Points for being cool are awarded to Hatfield & The North but obscurity is their enemy, something that also applies to Ian Dury & The Blockheads. Jefferson Starship are burdened with the combination of already being in as the Airplane and with possessing the unfortunate followup act of the Starship with the infamous "We Built this City." Judas Priest suffer the metal bias of their contemporaries but should get in, Kansas lose the game to other more significant prog acts, while the Most Controversial Award goes to KISS and KC & The Sunshine Band will find themselves falling in the shadow of the Great Disco Ball of Donna Summer

Perfectly summed up Tahvo. I personally favor inducting KISS.
Posted by Sam on Tuesday, 06.29.10 @ 20:07pm
I am surprised no one is in from this class. KISS are the most obvious exclusion from this class, but I can see why the critics don't like them. KC & the Sunshine Band are quite different from KISS, but they have been left out for obvious reasons. Eno is the surprising exclusion.

God did the hall mess up this year:
