Rock 'n' Roll! Who Will Be Inducted This Year?

| Filed under: Music MinuteSuper Seniors

wenn1944126kiss.jpg

It's been 10 years since they've first been eligible, but Kiss has finally been nominated to be inducted to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame!

To be eligible for nomination, the artist's first record must have been released 25 years prior to the induction ceremony - Kiss became eligible in 1999!

Wonder what took so long??????

The top five nominees to be inducted into the Hall of Fame will be announced in January, and Gene Simmons and the gang better prepare to be up against some stiff competition.

Nominations for 2010 include music giants like Abba, Donna Summer, Iggy & The Stooges, LL Cool J, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Genesis, just to name a few.

The Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame's 25th annual ceremony is scheduled to take place at the Waldorf-Astoria in NYC on March 25th.

Who would U like to see inducted??

  1. 1

    Seriously since when the hell is LL Cool J, in any way shape or form ROCK??



  2. 2

    Chilli Peps



  3. 3

    and we all know slimeball will never be nominated



  4. 4

    miley cyrus…lol



  5. 5

    no fucking brainer: Iggy & The Stooges



  6. 6

    CYNDI LAUPER!!! But I doubt she really cares, The Rock Hall of Fame is getting as bad as the Hollywood Walk of Fame.



  7. 7

    I would definately like to see LL Cool J in there he is great!!!



  8. 8

    LL Cool J? Are they serious? I think someone's trolling the nomination list. And what about Guns n Roses? They were one of the biggest and best rock bands of the 80's-90's. They blow all the other acts out of the water.

    Getting the original five members in a room together would also add some entertainment value.



  9. 9

    It's between Kiss, Abba and Iggy Pop. Sounds like it could be Kiss, they have a huge fandom.



  10. 10

    Abba, Donna Summer, LL Cool J good but not Rock & Roll..
    Annddddd lmaooo Kiss Gene simmons is the biggest prick out there..

    Adam Fucking Lambert will be on that wall soon



  11. 11

    Its about time the Red hot Chili Peppers were inducted



  12. 12

    Wow! All of those are great! I think probably Kiss, Abba, Donna Summer, and the Red Hot Chilis deserve to be inducted. Too bad its not in Cleveland though. I would love to go see any of these artists perform there!



  13. 13

    I'm keeping my fingers crossed for Laura Nyro. Perez, you should like her especially since she is the figurative godmother to an artist like Tori Amos. Any of her first five albums are worth the purchase!



  14. 14

    My vote would go to Ida Maria for having the good sense to bail on the Pumpkinhead Presents tour of bingo halls, flea markets, and unoccupied phone booths.



  15. 15

    what the fuk is ll cool j doing there?? is this a joke !?? hes a fukn shitty rapper .. what has this world come to! ?. there are plenty of amazing bands that havnt been inducted yet and they are thinking of inducting ll cool j??? wtf!!!! what about guns n roses ,, motley crue,,van halen ,,etc????!!!! this is a joke i dont blame the sex pistols for dissing them that time .,,just because you use insturments like in one of your songs dosnt mean your a rockstar !.



  16. 16

    you bitches are fuckin stupid hip hop artist have BEEN going in the rock n roll hall of fame the beats he used to use were very rockin rollish

    but i really dont give a shit about any of the people you named



  17. 17

    Kiss should have been inducted years ago. People that deny the fact that they were/are a huge contribution and influence to rock music are simply idiots. If they don't make it this year, it'll be a true shame.

    And LL Cool J????!! Like what the hell??! R-o-c-k music. I don't get it.



  18. 18

    I believe that 5 of these nominees will actually get into the rock and roll hall of fame. it's not just one of them. Kiss will and should get in. Say what you want about Gene but they guy is a freaking marketing genius. Kiss has been and still is selling out HUGE venues for over 35 years. Love love love Donna Summer and LL Cool J but….



  19. 19

    [[*seriously Perez you know nothing about real music you have "LEGENDS?" with a question mark on there across kiss's picture they dont need to be questioned everybody who knows music knows kiss kicks ass]]* and what is this about llcoolj?????? like really ..??????..hes a fucking hip hop artist hes not worthy of being a rock n roll hall of famer they are insulting real rock legends who deserve to be up there instead of him.**]]]

    The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame has become a joke. They have performers who have been inducted who have no business being there and bands like Chicago who have been touring for over 40 years with a zillion hit records who haven't been inducted. Ridiculous!



  21. 21

    Just the fact that the rock n roll hall of fame has been around 25 years and has not inducted Iggy and the stooges tells you their full of shit!

    JOURNEY! Why do they always get over looked??? They have been around since the early 70's and had the best damned singer ever in Steve Perry. Let's all say it now…JOURNEY….JOURNEY….JOURNEY.

    Re: nevathisgood – I totally agree. I didn't think Madonna was rock either but she still got in.



  24. 24

    the rock and roll hall of fame is for performers in general but i want LL to get in hes the greatest rapper of all time



  25. 25

    What about JETHRO TULL?! They have been around since the late 60s…openined for Zepplin, the Stones and every major rock and roll band you can think of (not referring to that pop rock shit you teenie boppers love to throw your momma's money to).
    .
    JETHRO TULL!
    JETHRO TULL!
    JETHRO TULL!
    JETHRO TULL!
    JETHRO TULL!
    .



  26. 26

    Boooo!!!
    Gene Simmons does not deserve it, and neither does his god-awful band Kiss.
    Give the honor to any of the other nominees. Please



  27. 27


  28. 28

    lets hope the red carpet doesnt consist of a tongue



  29. 29

    LL Cool J ???? Rock???? Am I missing something here?



  30. 30

    genesis deserves it more than anyone . phil collins AND peter gabriel = LOVE !
    abba would be a good choice too though .



  31. 31

    the stooges. by far.



  32. 32

    The hottest band in the world … KISS!



  33. 33

    Re: RedWingsFan – the requirement for a band or artist to be inducted to the hall of fame is 25 years after their first album release. it's not that the hall of fame has been around that long… it's just the rules. that's why nirvana and other influential bands that are younger aren't in yet.



  34. 34

    CHILI PEPPERS BABY!!!!!!!



  35. 35

    I'm a true-blue lover of rock and roll, and I have no respect, whatsoever, for the rock and roll hall of fame. It's not for rock and roll, it's just for contemporary music. How the hell does LL Cool J and Donna Summer qualify as ROCK???? Sure, they're great artists and are very popular, but they aren't rockers… the R&RHF is almost as nauseating as the JC Penney commercials with little kids saying they're rock stars (rocking out on stage without instruments, apparently) and claiming the word "rock stare." Blech.



  36. 36

    DEPECHE MODE - they deserve it!!!!



  37. 37

    Donna Summer should be inducted. She has outlived many of her contemporaries from the 70's & 80's and still produces current music and continues to put on sold out shows around the world. Her songs have been covered and sampled sooooo many times! She has been nominated about two other times now. She has won Grammys in four different categories (including Rock & R&B) How long does it have to be before she is appreciated!!!



  38. 38

    LL Cool J, Donna Summer you have to be kidding. Hip-Hop and Disco are as far away from Rock as you can get. Just because Obama is in office dosen't mean you should get Politically Correct in the nomanations.



  39. 39

    half of those people dont even sing rock. wtf.



  40. 40

    LL Cool J?
    youre fucking kidding me right?
    okay…in that list there are some names i fully agree with.
    but…come on…its Kiss. KISS!!!! Wtf. how theyre not already IN there is beyond me.



  41. 41

    Red Hot, Kiss, and Stooges, but LL Cool J? OVER MY DEAD BODY IS A RAPPER GOING IN THE ROCK AND ROLL HALL OF FAME.



  42. 42

    Re: nevathisgood

    AGREED!



  43. 43

    Iggy is a God - the peasants would be wise to not offer a mere 'Hall' already polluted with so many unworthy but to build a 'Temple'



  44. 44

    ll cool j?!? wtf?!? have bjork or kate bush been inducted yet???

    p.s follow me on t w i t t e r my names FUTURESTARdelux



  45. 45

    KISS!!!! Love em! Gonna see them again on October 29. God gave rock and roll to you, calling Dr. Love, Beth, Back in the New York Groove, I want to rock and roll all night, Detroit Rock City, Do you love me, mmmmmmmmm



  46. 46

    OK. I give LL Cool J credit 4 all his achievements. BUT this is not the place 4 people that sing rap, hip hop, r&b, country…or anything else that isnt ROCK N ROLL!!!!!! I'm sick n tired of people that have nothing to do with ROCK N ROLL, being recognize for anything else but ROCK N ROLL!!! Get ur own Hall of Fame and lets the rockers have their night.



  47. 47

    oh… and about freaking time time got their credit… now, next year lets focus on Iron Maiden.



  48. 48

    Re: chelsea3 – It's the r'n'r 25th annual ceremony and Iggy and the stooges first record came out in 1969.There is no reasonable excuse that the most influental punk band second only to maybe the Velvet Underground is not already in the hall of fame!



  49. 49

    Re: TheRussianOne – Bad news, my friend. It has happened before. This year they inducted Run DMC. I had nightmares for days, lol.

    LL Coll J ?????? wth :$



  51. 51

    KISS, they are the greatest band in the land! Kiss has had more staying power than all of the other bands put together, they are still touring, still raking in the money, still viable after all these years…they have more gold albums than Elvis and MJ combined so if they get passed up this year…the rock n roll hall of fame doesnt know its ass from a hole in the ground.
    ROCK N ROLL ALL NITE AND PARTY EVERYDAY BIATCHES!



  52. 52

    THE HOTTEST BAND IN THE LAND "KISS"



  53. 53

    …. ll cool j is not rock. donna summer? abba?
    wtf… who ever chooses this stuff needs to be fired.



  54. 54

    they still dont even have nazareth! or rush!



  55. 55

    KISS is easily the most deserving. Plus… the tongue!



  56. 56

    I want to see Red Hot Chili Peppers inducted!



  57. 57

    The Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame is a joke. Personally, I think they should get all the eligible ROCK bands in the Hall before they start letting in the likes of LL Cool J and Abba and for gods sakes, Madonna…. as if she is rock and roll. With so many classic rock and roll bands eligible, there is no reason they need to put these other acts in.



  58. 58

    IGGY!!!!!!!!!!!!!



  59. 59

    Re: RedWingsFan – word.



  60. 60

    Could all of you children stop saying induct Red Hot Chili Peppers?!? One of the greatest bands of all time is nominated, Iggy and the Stooges, and you want that crap inducted???



  61. 61

    ABBA! :D



  62. 62

    RHCP FER LYF PEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEPZZZZ!!!!!!!!!



  63. 63

    Re: Serena!!!COLON!!! You Twats – It's not worth a stupid fight but since you aren't being very democratic here, I'd like to intervene. Don't get me wrong I respect Iggy and he's made some amazing music, but the peppers are arguably the alternative rock band of the last 2 decades AND they are very underrated. Think Blood Sugar Sex Magik and Mother's Milk when they were in their prime. THE premier band of the 90s. But I don't fully agree with all the Rock n roll Hall of fame nominees..



  64. 64

    Re: DonnaBardinogianni – The 1990s saw so many amazing alternative rock bands, how can you say the Chili Peppers are the best of the past 20 years? If we're going to be naming the best alternative rock bands of the past 20 years, why don't we mention bands like the Pixies, and others who actually deserve that recognition?
    I also wouldn't say the Chili Peppers are underrated at all. They're incredibly popular.



  65. 65

    Iggy & the Stooges



  66. 66

    What a joke the R&RHofF is. What about Rush, The Moody Blues, JethroTull, Yes and Queen Kate Bush? These aritist are so much more deserving than that list. For Christ sake please…LL Cool J? Kiss? I'm gonna go throw up now



  67. 67

    LL fucking Cool -J!? HELOOO!!Wrong Genre,and not even any good! Why aren't Quo,Steel Panther or Theory Of A Deadman in there?!If AC/DC arent already in there,Im complaining……..



  68. 68

    ABBA!!! ABBA!!! ABBA!!! ABBA!!!



  69. 69

    KISS!!!!!!!! They are rock legends….seen them live this past summer and they are amazing!!!!!!



  70. 70

    NOT ME!



  71. 71

    RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS!!!! all the way
