Nirvana is obvious no-brainer.  They should just skip all of the nonsense and induct them now.
Cynicism is a blank check for failure.

You think Nirvana is more worthy than Cat Stevens, Deep Purple, and KISS.

Meters, Replacements, Zombies, Chic.

In that order.

Do you honestly believe that Nirvana should not be a first ballot inductee? 


Even if you don't like them, their impact on music is undeniable.  That would be like passing on the Beatles or the Rolling Stones the first time they were up.

But in answer to your question.


Yes, yes, and fuck yes.

They induct more than one band you know.

Honestly, even though I don't like them much, KISS had a larger impact on the music industry, in terms of concept albums, image, marketing, and cross-promotion.

Nirvana had a larger cultural impact.  They galvanized youth culture in a way that Gene Simmons could only dream about.

KISS was crap, IMO.

But so was some strung out punk that whimpered a few albums and then became An Hero because life is so rough on a rock star. 

Rock n roll is about not taking any shit.  It's not about eating a fucking shotgun because the world is so dark that you can't risk angels seeing into your heart.  Because they'd die.

3rd rate shitbag kills self.  Story over.  No need to put him in the hall of fame for ANYTHING.  Except maybe ceiling painting.

Nothing Nirvana did lasted 20 years.  People are still doing the stuff KISS started 40 years ago.

Let's talk about the cultural influence of an habitual junkie who offed himself.   :lulz:

Such an example!

Yeah, this is just my experience here, but I've never heard anyone gush about Nirvana's cultural impact who didn't have a bong in one hand and a crack pipe in the other.

I think we should most definitely commermorate his life and cultural influence on youth.

Maybe we could name a needle exchange program after him.
