More Like Rock and Roll Hall of Lame


Blech to the following acts nominated as 2010 inductees to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame: KISS, The Red Hot Chili Peppers, LL Cool J, and Genesis. Dammit. Massive popularity does not warrant any sort of permanent accolade. If it did, we would have given My Big Fat Greek Wedding ten Oscars.

The RNRHOF nominates 12 acts annually, of which only five gain admittance. The acts above are being nominated for the first time. Returning to the ballot: ABBA and the Stooges. You read correctly, ABBA and the Stooges are not only NOT in the Hall already, they’re competing against the Red Hot Chili Peppers. That’s like comparing an injection of pure heroin to a sip from Anthony Kiedis’s cup of morphine.¬†

Full list of nominees:

KISS, LL Cool J, The Red Hot Chili Peppers, Genesis, Jimmy Cliff, the Hollies, Laura Nyro, Donna Summer, Darlene Love, Abba, the Stooges, and the Chantels.

    The Chantels are the best female vocal group ever and the lead singer sang “Maybe” when she was 14.
