When I woke up this morning I said to myself, "Self what a great day to vote KISS for induction into the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame". So I did, and you should too...here's why.
Another reason you need to vote for KISS is the inclusion of Nirvana in this years inductees. Now personally I just don't get Nirvana, never have. The whole Nirvana and specifically Kurt Cobain as some sort of musical messiah is more ridiculous than having Madonna and Donna Summer already in the RNRHF. Nirvana were an average punk band at best, they were in the right place at the right time when grunge took hold and changed the musical landscape, Nirvana got lucky with one amazing song that captured an entire movement. I take nothing away from that but seriously, Soundgarden, Pearl Jam, Alice In Chains and Stone Temple Pilots all delivered better material and almost all of these bands including NIRVANA have listed KISS as influences early on.
Kiss have forged a 40 year legacy that should no longer be denied. Love them or hate them they are ingrained in rock history. Critics have always panned them but the ARMY have always carried them on their shoulders for the world to see. The time is now KISS ARMY to "shout it out loud" and let them know that KISS deserves a spot in Cleveland rock city. My god people, this band wrote ROCK AND ROLL ALL NITE, is there more that needs to be said?
