The Rock Hall released its list of inductees for 2012 today, naming Guns N’ Roses, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Donovan, The Faces / Small Faces and Laura Nyro among the honored, while ignoring folks such as Joan Jett And The Blackhearts, Heart, WAR, and The Cure for the career-spanning honor.
But perhaps the two bands most overlooked by the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame are KISS and Rush. At least, that’s what their fans will tell you.
Every year the Hall announces its new inductees and every year fans of both bands take to online message boards to voice their displeasure. In fact, of the first five comments posted on Pollstar.com this morning in reaction to the Rock Hall’s announcement, four noted the absence of the Canadian power trio, with one reader calling today’s announcement “the yearly Rush diss.”
If it was up to you, would you side with KISS or would you rather see Rush inducted into the R&R Hall Of Fame?
Of course, there’s always next year.
