    Seeing Nirvana should be fun. Dave can sing and play drums while Pat plays guitar. :bassist:

    Or have Dave sing and play guitar while Dale from the Melvins drums.

    It won't happen, but its got my vote.

    Good selections. Sounds like a deserving group all around.

    Gabriel should have been in years ago. While I never was hooked on his stuff, I always respected it's brilliance in construction and presentation, which is 90% of the battle. I was just more into other stuff.

    I don't think anybody can dispute this list of well deserving, and some long overdue, inductees.

    If you look at the acts that are already in (the HOF). A very good argument can be made the most if not all of these acts should have been in earlier. Glad they finally have a good group of musicians going in that really represent rock.:bassist:

    It would have been nice if they would have included Deep Purple this year since they were nominated the last two years and Yes should have made it as well. Maybe next year will work out for those bands; but, they should have been in long ago as well.

    I sure hope that some other long overlooked acts are not far behind either.

    The Hall of Fame is and always has been a joke. Too many bands who should be there and are not and too many who are in who shouldn't be.

    I think all of this year's group are well deserved except Nirvana. 3 studio albums and they get in? How can anyone even compare what Nirvana did with the other nominees? Songs in which the instruments had no clarity or definition, lyrics which were screamed to the point of almost being inaudible. I know some people are going to say that they defined an era, etc. I don't buy that argument and it's still not nearly enough in my opinion.

    Like them or not, Nirvana changed the scene on a very large scale. I don't think Buddy Holly had three albums out before he died.

    It's definitely an interesting list of inductees. Nirvana absolutely deserved to be a first ballot induction given the way they completely changed the landscape of rock music with the release of Nevermind.

    As for KISS getting in? The only reason I'm glad it's happening is because I won't have to hear KISS fans complain about their favorite band being snubbed. Personally, I don't see their musical contributions as noteworthy in any way, shape or form. And their most significant achievements were in stage craft and pyro. Otherwise, whenever a KISS song comes on my radio I find myself tuning away and all of a sudden appreciating middling 70's bands like Grand Funk or Bad Company.

    It would be nice to see the four original members of KISS jam one more time. I just don't think the Hall of Fame would allow for bombs and circus stage antics, like a real KISS show.

    +1

    Any group that was around for a relatively short time, yet had such a huge impact, is obviously significant.

    Yes, sad that they're being inducted without Kurt.

    I love the Genesis with PG. Loved KISS until they dumped the makeup, I hope Peter and Ace will be playing. I wonder if Nirvana would suck now or still be a band if Kurt was alive? Never was a fan back then. Ronstadt, well she's always been good at what she does.
