The nominees have been announced for The 2014 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The inductees include N.W.A, LL Cool J, Linda Ronstadt, Peter Gabriel, Hall and Oates, and Deep Purple. All great artists in their own right. However, one nominee garnered the most attention this past week: Nirvana. The grunge-rock band from the 90s are attempting to breakthrough into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
Though many of the nominees are fantastic, especially rap group N.W.A. for paving the way for younger MCs, Nirvana is regarded as one of the greatest bands of the 1990s. I think many of the praise comes from lead singer’s Kurt Kobain’s untimely passing and how he was a genius, blah, blah, blah.
Ok, he was a terrific songwriter and Nirvana has many of the greatest songs of their decade. Will they get inducted? Of course they will, in addition to KISS and Linda Ronstadt. However, who else will be inducted for the 2014 year? Or what singer or act of today will be inducted in the future?Google+
