It's run by middle aged white guys who are still too busy jerking off to old footage from Woodstock to realize rock has moved on.
I thought the HOF had lost its purpose now that Rush is in, as the only good thing about the RnR HOF was how pissed off Rush fans were over their favorite band not being inducted in a museum so un-rock n roll it should play Rush 24/7. But now that it seems Kiss fans are pissed off over their sleight... well, that's even better.
I mean, I don't really like Rush, but they seem like really nice guys and I don't have anything against them, or their music. I don't like it, but I don't hate it either. It just exists. But Kiss? Holy shit, Kiss fans are pissed?!
Now, that's something I can truly enjoy with full schadenfreude. There's not a band on earth I despise more than Kiss, and I find their fans to be easily duped suckers who exist just to inflate Kiss' bank accounts. Kiss views its fans like PT Barnum viewed his patrons. They will do anything, and I do mean anything, to suck more money out of people. It's one thing to get rich making music. Hey, that's great. But Kiss doesn't exist to make music, they exist to make money. They are the epitome of soulless corporate sellouts.
And now their fans are upset they aren't in the RnR HOF? Awesome! Just when I thought they should close up shop now that they are no longer trolling Rush fans, they move on to a more worthy target: Kiss.
This makes my day.
Oh, and I posted it in another thread, but here's a small sampling of eligible bands not only not inducted, but never even nominated for induction:
Jan & Dean
The Moody Blues
Hall & Oates
The Dead Kennedys
