Nirvana will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on April 10, 2014. This is the first year of eligibility for the Seattle grunge band, led by the late Kurt Cobain.
In addition to Nirvana, KISS, E Street Band, Hall & Oates, Peter Gabriel, Cat Stevens, and Linda Ronstadt will also be inducted into the Rock Hall.
The induction ceremony will be held at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. This is the first time the ceremony has ever been held in an arena so this will be the largest induction ceremony, ever.
Bands become eligible for the Rock Hall 25 years after their first release. Nirvana released a single called Love Buzz in 1988. So, this is the first year the band was eligible for nomination. KISS has been eligible for 15 years. Their exclusion from the Hall has ruffled the feathers of the band and their fans.
Nirvana's nomination for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame had us wondering who would step in for the late Kurt Cobain if/when the band performs at the induction ceremony. Check out a few suggestions here.
