It's a Long Way to the Top if You Want to Rock and Roll

Today the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame announced twelve nominees eligible to be inducted in the 2010 class. The potential inductees include: ABBA, Darlene Love, Donna Summer, Genesis, Jimmy Cliff, KISS, Laura Nyro, LL Cool J, Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Chantels, The Hollies, and The Stooges. Of all the inductees, The Stooges have long been passed over for induction, so it will be interesting to see if they are among the five acts that are actually inducted on March 15, 2010. Gene Simmons of KISS has said publicly that he doesn’t care if KISS is inducted or not, but something tells me he won’t have to be dragged to the ceremony if KISS are ultimately chosen as one of the five inducted groups/artists. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame plans to announce the five nominees voted worthy of induction in January 2010. Who do you think deserves to be inducted?
