R&R Hall Of Fame: KISS vs Rush

12:01 PM Wednesday 12/7/11 | |

If you had to choose either KISS or Rush to be inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame, which band would you pick?

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.

    It is a no brainer. They both should be in, no question. The rock and roll hall of fame is a joke on how they elect groups into the hall of fame. Run DMC, Madonna, the Beastie Boys, come on it is Rock and Roll.  Dahhhhh.

    Heart belongs in, along with Deep Purple, Boston, The Moody Blues, Cheap Trick, Pat Benatar, Joan Jett, Chicago, The Guess Who, Kansas, Blue Oyster Cult and many others.

    Is this a joke?  Rush is one of the most talented bands in history.  I have no idea why they are not in the hall of fame already.  Makes absolutely no sense at all.

    This isn't a question of "which one" should be in.  This is a question of, when should they have been inducted and over whom that are already in the hall?  Names in the hall such as Run DMC and Madonna come to mind when thinking of who they should be in place of.  Other nominees like LL Cool J and Eric B and Rakim are also nominated.  The hall is a joke and shouldn't have the right to be named the "Rock and Roll Hall of Fame".
