Just announced: There are 12 nominees up for induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum.
They are: 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.
Only five will be selected to be inducted on March 15 at the Waldorf Astoria in New York City. To be eligible, an act must have released its first single or album at least 25 years prior to the year of nomination. This year’s nominees had to release their first single no later than 1984.
Which five do you think will make the cut?

Rock and Roll = Donna Summer? ABBA?

Kiss should have been inducted years ago.

Genesis is a good inclusion.

Red Hot Chili Peppers? BLECH! If these guys get in before KISS, Alice Cooper, Thin Lizzy...

I can't believe KISS finally made the ballot...they'll get in. How were The Stooges or Genesis not nominated years ago?

In addition to Kiss and Genesis, I think The Hollies and The Stooges are good selections.

I think the HoF should use the same criterion that sports HoFs use; the inductees must be out of the business for at least 5 years before they are eligible. How the hell does RHCP merit nomination?

Maybe not. The guy that owns Rolling Stone magazine (Jann Werner) has some sort of grudge againt KISS and he's one of the main guys with the HoF. I would be very surprised if KISS gets in, especially if this is their 1st time on the ballot.

While I'm not a fan, I can see how they could be nominated. They blazed a trail in the whole rap-rock genre, created their own unique, recognizable sound and sold millions of albums. And, going back on another post, they were always pretty tight with Rolling Stone magazine and favorable with the critics. I think that plays a HUGE part in the nomination process.

Now, all that said, I believe that there are still plenty other groups that should be in the HoF before the Peppers.

Because they were/are an original, innovative band who've influenced countless other bands and sold a ton of records. I'm not a fan, but facts are facts...they absolutely deserve a nomination, IMO.

Yes she should be in Rock N Roll Hall fo Fame IMO humble opinion, she was a very important artists in the early 70's. Like a lot of artists she should be in the Hall years ago.

That wouldn't surprise me. When all is said and done, all 4 of those guys seem pretty civil towards each other. I don' recall them being too vicious about one another. Even when Ace & Peter got the boot, Gene was brutally honest about it ("they were drunks who couldn't perform") and looking back over the years, Ace & Peter own up to that.

The real question would be "Is Vinnie Vincent invited on stage?"

I agree - the bands that should get in are KISS, RHCP, Genesis, The Stooges. Not familiar with Laura Nyro, but based on Manny's comments, she would be my 5th pick

I lived/grew up in Ohio and had every opportunity to go to this place. Never seemed like it would be a good time and in fact would bother me.

Rolling Stone magazine have never liked heavy metal, in recent years they have started praising Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin and AC/DC, but back in the 70's they gave these bands terrible reviews and bascially called fans of any of these bands stupid for even liking them.

I am surprised that KISS have even been nominated, Dave Marsh, a snobby know it critic hates KISS and Alice Cooper. Also Jan Werner, also hates KISS, despite the fact that the band has been citied as an influence by one Kurt Cobain, who recoreded a few KISS cover tunes as a tribute to the band not a piss take.

I am also surprised Genesis is on the ballot, but the only thing Rolling Stone magazine hates more than heavy metal is Genesis and prog rock.

As far as Abba, they definitley deserved to be nominated into R n R Hall of Shame.

Judging from the list of nominees, I'll make this prediction:

Who will make the list:
Genesis
The Hollies
Darlene Love
Donna Summer
Laura Nyro

Who should make the list:
KISS
Genesis
The Stooges
Darlene Love
The Chantels

ARGH!!!!!! I hate stupid gimmicks like this. Madonna? LL Cool J? It's ROCK N ROLL......I don't care how influential an artist is, if they ain't rock, DO NOT include them. Oh well, at least it ain't as rediculous as the Grammy Awards.....

ABBA is probably the most influental band of all of those, So if they're gonna include pop music, as they've done many times before, then ABBA is an obvious choice.

Glad to see that KISS is finally nominated.

Nice to see KISS finally being considered at the very least. Time will tell if they get in.
