Kiss Fans protest outside the Rock Hall

http://www.cnn.com/2006/SHOWBIZ/Musi....ap/index.html

CLEVELAND, Ohio (AP) -- About 200 Kiss fans protested in front of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum to demand that the band be inducted into the hall.

Fans, some from as far away as California, carried signs Saturday and had painted their faces in black-and-white to resemble Kiss band members.

Those participating in the half-hour demonstration were upset that the band, formed more than 30 years ago, has not been admitted, even though it has been eligible since the late 1990s.

Artists become eligible for induction 25 years after the release of their first record, according to the museum's Web site.

"Criteria include the influence and significance of the artist's contributions to the development and perpetuation of rock and roll," the site says.

A museum spokesman said it was the first demonstration by fans seeking to have a group inducted.

The foundation that selects inductees is based in New York City, not at the museum.


---------------------

so what do you think should they be inducted or are they not worth it? their music may be consider crap by most critics but they can't deny how many bands they influenced.

Just because they've been around for a long time it doesn't mean they should be inducted in. i don't think they're good enough to go in, but that's my personal view.

well like I said they are far from being great musicians, eventhough I really think Paul Stanley is an amazing singer (and Gene Simmons a really crappy one for that matter)

They've had this huge influence on bands like Anthrax, Skid Row, Lenny Kravitz, Pantera, Motley Crue, Poison, Stone Temple Pilots, even Garth Brooks. Not the type of bands that a U2 crowd listens to, so I'm probably digging a hole but I really think they should get in

Kiss should definately be inducted.
Even if you hate the band you cannot deny them this.

these, IMO, are the biggest omissions as of 2006

Genesis
Rush
Van Halen
Yes

there are some others, Chicago, Alice Cooper, Kiss, Jethro Tull, Moody Blues, Iron Maiden, Judas Priest etc. but those 4 absolutely shoud be in without question

I think it's kind of lame that fans would protest to get a band into the Hall of Fame. Who cares if they're in or not? If you like them, that's all that matters.

its just a matter of supporting their favorite band is it lame? maybe and Kiss has stated many time that they don't care about the R&R Hall of Fame but so did Black Sabbath, every band wants their share of recognition even if it's not cool

Do they need Kiss to be inducted to validate their fandom or something?

Seriously, who bloody cares?

It's just a freaking discussion nothing important but I've seen Kiss fans in this forum, few but there are some, and others like myself who started listening to Kiss when they were kids, so next time post in a thread where you actually care because "who bloody cares" right?

I think you misinterpreted me. My "who bloody cares?" is to the idiots going and protesting because their precious fandom hasn't received an induction that is really relatively meaningless. A band doesn't need such recognition to be good.
