    Rock & Roll Hall of Fame ballot announced

    This year's Rock & Roll Hall of Fame ballot was released with some interesting first time nominees.

    Is there any way Nirvana doesn't make it in this year?

    I hope the Replacements make it.
    When I see the 2015 Reds, I see a 100 loss team.

    Just to get the names out there, here's the list from CNN

    Grunge groundbreakers Nirvana, disco dynamos Chic and the costume-clad, Gene Simmons-led pop metal band KISS are among 16 nominees up for election in the museum's Class of 2014. The deep selection also includes '70s and '80s hitmakers Hall and Oates; college radio heroes the Replacements; New Orleans funkmeisters the Meters; sweet-voiced Linda Ronstadt; and pioneering gangsta rappers N.W.A.

    Completing the list: the Paul Butterfield Blues Band, Deep Purple, Peter Gabriel, LL Cool J, Cat Stevens, Link Wray, Yes and the Zombies.

    I really like this list of nominees. I'll tolerate LL Cool J, but just not a rap fan overall - but will admit the contribution. The "fringe" artists are a good mix, too.

    Here's an argument for Link Wray. I'm familiar with his biggest hit "Rumble"

    I don't know his entire body of work, but his performance at the beginning of the clip sounds as fresh now as it did back in 1958 when the song first came out.

    Nirvana and NWA would seem logical. Some day KISS will get in likely. They've been around so long, sold so many records and in the 70's were some kind of phenomenon I think they will end up in on that alone.

    Nirvana is the most iconic of a change in music. Grunge paved the way for current alternative styles and let's face it Nevermind was in every kids CD player when I was a junior in high school. I know popularity doesn't make quality, but it was quality to me. Soundgarden was the only mainstream grunge band I liked more.

    NWA.....they weren't he first 'gansta' rappers and in fact some of the stuff Cube and Dre have done since then remove a lot of their street cred [if there is such a thing] but much like Nirvana, there were a lot of us back in high school who had Straight Outta Compton in the disc changer of our cars. My dad was a cop and I still blared Eff the Police all the damn time.

    To me those two should get in.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    Chubby Checker snubbed again? He had the biggest chart hit of all-time on the planet.

    Without going on my usual ELO rant, it is good to see some seventies-era bands considered. Hall & Oates has been a huge snub.

    Nirvana's a no-brainer. The Replacements were quite influential in their day. Personally, I have a soft spot for Deep Purple. Yes deserves a spot as well, if the voters can get over all the prog excess (read Rick Wakeman).

    You're right, those 70s bands sure are under-represented in the R&R HOF!

    Agreed. On both parts. I know that Hall & Oates aren't to some people's tastes...but the sheer number of hits they had back in the 80's was astonishing.

    And not having ELO in there...that's just stupid. Personally, I think the R&R hall of fame should be exactly that. Rock and Roll. Put rappers in a different venue. NWA and the Beatles should NEVER be in the same building. EVER!
