Nirvana, KISS Among Those Entering Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2014

Seattle’s own grunge icons Nirvana will be inducted into the 2014 class of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Also making the cut were Glam-Rock band extraordinaire KISS…Which is slightly ironic considering bassist Gene Simmons was quoted as saying Kurt Cobain should not be considered a rock icon. Backstage at the ceremony should be interesting to say the least.

Rounding out the class of 2014 inductees are Hall and Oates, Peter Gabriel, Linda Rondstadt and Cat Stevens with Bruce Springsteen’s E Street Band taking the Award for Musical Excellence.

This marks the first time Nirvana were eligible for induction (25 years after the release of their first significant recording). However, KISS has been on the ballot but passed over for several years now.

The 2014 ceremony will be held April 10 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y., marking the first time that public tickets to the event will be sold in New York. Previous ceremonies were held at the NYC’s Waldorf Astoria Hotel or at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Museum in Cleveland, Ohio. Tickets to the event will go on sale in January, and the ceremony will air on HBO in May.

Congrats to this year’s winners!
