The Rock Hall of fame announced its 2014 inductees Monday (12/16). An active campaign by KISS Army members has paid off for the group. Nirvana, Peter Gabriel, Hall & Oates, Cat Stevens and Linda Ronstadt will also be officially enshrined April 10th at the Barclays Center in the Queens, New York. Coming up short in the balloting this year were Deep Purple, Yes, the Paul Butterfield Blues Band, the Zombies, Link Wray and the Meters. Also failing to gain enough traction (thankfully, to us) were Chic, N.W.A. and LL Cool J. Gabriel, who was a no-show when he was inducted as a member of Genesis in 2010, tells Rolling Stone he does plan to take part in the ceremony next year. Bruce Springsteen's E Street Band earned the Hall's Musical Excellence award.
